In a sermon that was posted on YouTube in March, Rev Jesse Lee Peterson said women are leading the United States down a path of wickedness because they have too much political power.
‘I think that one of the greatest mistakes America made was to allow women the opportunity to vote,’ Peterson said in the sermon.
‘We should’ve never turned this over to women. It was a big mistake… And these women are voting in the wrong people. They’re voting in people who are evil who agrees (sic) with them who’re gonna take us down this pathway of destruction.
‘And this probably was the reason that they didn’t allow women to vote when men were men. Because men, in the good old days, understood the nature of the woman. They were not afraid to deal with it and they understood that if they let them take over, this is what would happen.’
Rev Peterson’s comments about women come from his sermon called ‘How most women are building a shameless society.’
During the 12-minute speech, he says women are incapable of making good decisions because they are too emotional.
‘You walk up to them with a issue, they freak out right away. They go nuts. They get mad. They get upset, just like that. They have no patience because it’s not in their nature. They don’t have love. They don’t have love,’ he said.
He has some other interesting opinions, too:
Rev Peterson is no stranger to controversial statements. He has previously said ‘thank God for slavery’ because it brought the Africans to live in the United States, the ‘greatest country in the world.’
He has also said: ‘Barack Obama hates white people, especially white men.’
He has been quoted saying men should be legally allowed to hit their wives and that he wishes he could take ‘all black people back to the South and put them on the plantation so they would understand the ethic of working.’
