Illinois Pastor Compares Same-Sex Parents To 'Five-Year Olds Who Think They Can Drive Cars': VIDEO

Illinoispastor

An Illinois pastor on his way to an anti-gay marriage protest in Springfield this week opted for offensive comparisons rather than rational thought when questioned by a reporter from Fox 32. He assured the reporter that "Our nation is not built on the strength of its army or its finances, but what goes on in our living rooms, and family always has been and will always be the foundation and bedrock of society. And so we're gonna stand for what God ordained; it's one woman, one man. Every child needs a mom and a dad." Things take an unpredictable turn after that.

Good As You's Jeremy Hooper reports:

...stick around until the 2:00 mark, when a local pastor compares gay parents like me to "five-year-olds who think they can drive cars."

Of course these folks will be rallying alongside one of the most overtly hostile organizations working in any of our states. Being compared to a reckless toddler with road rage might be tame compared to what else we'll hear today in Springfield.

Watch the short sermon, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Strike the "on" from the surname and that's pretty much what you have here.

  5. Unfortunately, the 400 years of oppression have created some crazy mindsets amoung some Black people.

    Pretending that a few Gay people will cause terrible damage while 50 Black kids a month are being shot in Chicago shows part of the crazy. This rally ought to be about helping Black people to have stable families.

  6. Tip for making life easier: don't take anyone seriously who calls himself "pastor".

  11. You can't fight homophobia and bigotry with racism. You are just as bad as he is.

  12. Religion has poisoned his mind. Any race any gender. Religion turns good people into bad people.

  13. Expecting rational thought from a practitioner of magical beliefs is unrealistic. This fool and his make believe friend can go f#ck themselves.

    The equality avalanche is getting bigger everyday and there's no stopping it.

  14. Dan Cobb, racist much?!

  15. "opted for offensive comparisons rather than rational thought"

    Absolutely. He goes with his personal feelings as though they were a Universal reality--they're not, just his personal reality and there's something mentally ill about that delusion.

  16. It's great that everyone thinks they're going to come up with THE analogy of why we are wrong.

    I wish I could go back in time and support interracial bans.

  17. jeez you'd think these closet cases would know enough at least to stay home.

  22. Self-proclaimed "pastor." I know their bishops out there. They are the pastors who have stolen enough from their idiot flock to have gold rings on their fingers and chains on their necks. Sorry, but superstitious dumb people no longer get my sympathy. If you want to be taken by these scum, you deserve what you get.

  23. I don't know any 5-year-old who wants to drive a car.

  24. I think Anita Padilla was very kind to the pastor. She was fair in her reporting. Good job.

  25. "there's a rooster and there's a chicken."
    and there's a moron.
