No Love for Steve Harvey's New Movie 'Think Like A Man'

In a post at the Huffington Post, Think Like A Man: Is Our Economic Growth Worth the Price of Admission?, blogger Kirsten West Savali gives her take on the upcoming movie 'Think Like A Man' based on the relationship book authored by comedian/morning radio host/Family Feud host...Steve Harvey. The book 'Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment' became not only a New York Times Best Seller, but ultimately is responsible for the launch of Harvey's new daytime TV talk show slated to begin this fall.

Here's her post. Apparently she has no problem with his syndicated morning radio show:

I don't like Steve Harvey -- yes, I said it.

To be more precise, since I've never met the man personally, I don't like what Steve Harvey represents.

There is an arrogance -- a barely sheathed tone of alpha-male superiority that permeates everything he spews from politics to relationships -- that simply makes my skin crawl. In his controversial "book," Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, he presumes that women are so desperate to snare a man that they will blindly lap up advice from anyone with a pen and a publicist. In a deliberate attempt at adverse-feminism, he casts women as simple-minded huntresses who -- with a simple fifteen-dollar literary weapon from Barnes & Noble -- will be armed with the sophisticated techniques needed to catch our flawed masculine prey. To make matters worse, he has a consistent habit of illuminating the misogyny in the Bible for public consumption, as if the Great One himself parted the clouds and said, "Woman, thou shall be a lady in the streets, but a freak in the sheets... (((sheets)))... (((sheets)))..."

Before I became agnostic, I clearly remember sitting in Bible study and hearing Proverbs 18:22, which reads: "He who findeth a wife, findeth a good thing;" not, "she who stalks a husband and lassos him to the altar with tricks (both psychological and sexual) findeth a good thing."

Can the church say 'Amen'?
