Why are Democrats campaigning at a church where the pastor compared gays to child molesters?

Major Democratic presidential candidates have been campaigning at the church of a pastor who denigrates LGBTQ people.

Mercury News reports that at least three of the top 2020 presidential candidates – Senators Kamala Harris (D-CA), Cory Booker (D-NJ), and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) – have visited the Victory Missionary Baptist Church in Las Vegas, Nevada, on campaign stops.

Harris and Booker attended services at the church and Sanders held a townhall there.


Its pastor isn’t a friend of LGBTQ people, though. Reverend Robert E. Fowler, Sr., has a history of inflammatory comments.

In 2013, he compared homosexuality to pedophilia.

3. I tried to discuss this and the general hypocrisy with respect to homophobic religious organizations

and let's just say I won't be discussing this issue on this board again.

5. I'm guessing the folks at the church are asking "why are we letting these homo-lovers" speak

Can't be sure....

but maybe........ into the den of thieves?

(if you're in a dark room about 20 feet away and squint just right.. it MIGHT look that way).

Sigh
