WATCH: Apostle Paul David Rodgers: “Gay Parents Are Like Five-Year-Olds Trying To Drive Cars”

PastorA Chicago-based Christian leader sparked national controversy Monday when he made odd remarks about gay and lesbian parents.

While out protesting against Illinois’ pending same-sex marriage legislation, Apostle Paul David Rodgers (pictured) told his local news station: “Our nation is not built on the strength of its army or its finances, but what goes on in our living rooms. Family has always been and will always be the foundation and bedrock of society and so we’re going to stand for what God ordained.”

Oh, brother.

When asked how he felt about same-sex couples becoming parents, Rodgers said, “Well, we have 5-year-olds who think they can drive cars, but the reality is there is a certain way that things are structured and there are certain things that are in order.”

Then he added: “There is a male lion and there is a female lion. There is a rooster and there is a chicken. Biology tells us what was ordained.”

Rosters and chickens? Seriously?

In true hypocritical fashion, Rodgers finished by saying that politicians should concentrate on more important things than what adults did in their bedrooms… Just so long as those adults are a male lion and a female lion.

    Like five year old kids, well you’d be the expert on “teaching” children Rodgers.

    No Brother, this country was created on the backs of slaves not viewed as complete humans beings and the displacement of Native Americans from their homeland. As a fellow African American we BOTH know that our community has large issues with crime, drugs, and lack of education. You would better serve the black community by working on those issues and than standing on the wrong side of history on gay rights. It is religious leaders like you that caused me to leave the black church.

    Christians are such jerks

  • Kieran

    Whenever these money-grubbing religious con-artists give themselves a fake, phony label like “Apostle” or “Bishop”—you know they are not of God.

    Says a grown man still letting his imaginary friend lead him around by the nose.

  • hyhybt

    Why is he referred to here as “Apostle?” Is that part of his name, or a title given by his church, or something else?

  • DarSco

    @Scribe38: Amen! as a man of G-d he should be worried about sisters in the church having baby after baby and no husband or trying to encourage more blacks to adopt all of these unwanted children

    Who is this nut and who cares what this jerk thinks? He be a noooobody who wants to be somebody, hence the “apostle” tag. What a moron. Hey bro, you related to ‘da rev’rund big al “tawana brawley” shaw-pton?

    Apostle? Man, the only ones I’m aware about were sitting at the table with Jesus.

  • startenout

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but the line in the Preamble to the Constitution which states “provide for the common defense” directly means that this country will be built upon military strength. Furthermore, hasn’t it been shown that many of the founding fathers had illegitimate children, some with their own African slaves?

    I’m just saying, before you use your beliefs or your religion to deny the rights of others, perhaps you should make sure that your knowledge is beyond question.

    @Scribe38: Sir, Pastor’s like him is not the reason you left the black churchs. You left because the truth hurts, what this man speaks is truth straight from the word of God. Gen.1:28 And God blessed them and said to them, Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it [using all its vast resources in the service of God and man]; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and over every living creature that moves upon the earth. Man and man or woman and woman can not be fruitful and multiply. Leviticus 18:22 You shall not lie with a man as with a woman; it is an abomination. Now God is the same yesterday,today and forever more. Most churchs water down,sugarcoat the word and lead the flock away from God.
    Revelation 22:18-19(AMP)
    18 I [personally solemnly] warn everyone who listens to the statements of the prophecy [the [a]predictions and the consolations and admonitions pertaining to them] in this book: If anyone shall add anything to them, God will add and lay upon him the plagues (the afflictions and the calamities) that are recorded and described in this book.
    19 And if anyone cancels or takes away from the statements of the book of this prophecy [these [b]predictions relating to Christ’s kingdom and its speedy triumph, together with the consolations and admonitions or warnings pertaining to them], God will cancel and take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the city of holiness (purity and hallowedness), which are described and promised in this book. I pray God touch your mind and heart and bring truth and understanding to you God bless

    @DarSco: The sisters cant have a baby by herself, she need a seed and where does the seed come from? Man,so both need to be address. the discussion should be why these men who father these kids don’t wrap up or step up and take on there responsiblities. There wouldnt be so many unwanted babies. The issue is there need to be more role models to teach both, How to be virturous women and how to be real Godly men. It takes a community, to make a difference. Stop disrespecting the women and give the men a pat on the back. There both responsible. God bless you
