Texas Pastor Nods Along as Talk Show Host Says the Folks Pushing Abortion Rights Are Promiscuous Men 'Like Our President'

by Dan Quinn

We’ve heard a lot of extreme rhetoric in the deeply divisive debate over abortion in Texas the last few weeks. Our friends at Right Wing Watch caught some of it today, when Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress spoke on a far-right American Family Association radio program. In talking about what’s happening in Texas, show host Sandy Rios said who she thinks are the biggest supporters of abortion rights:

“It is generally, from my opinion, the promiscuous white men who are pushing abortion. I would even say the promiscuous black ones like our president, oh forgive me I shouldn’t say that, but they’re the ones who want sexual license, they do not want responsibility; abortion has always helped men more than it helps women.”
Jeffress, one of the more extreme religious-right figures in Texas, didn’t disagree. He then went on to compare the United States to Nazi Germany and said the country will suffer God’s judgment. From Right Wing Watch:
The megachurch pastor maintained that abortion rights opponents will “buy a little more time for our country before God’s judgment” comes to America for decriminalizing abortion, just as God punished Israel and Nazi Germany: “He raised up the Babylonians and the Assyrians to judge Israel for engaging in child sacrifice; he raised up the Allied forces to crush Nazi Germany for taking kids to the gas chambers by the trainloads.”
