Fox News Contributor Says Letting Women Vote "One of America's Greatest Mistakes" By Brett Wilkins

A controversial clergyman and Fox News contributor has raised eyebrows and ire by delivering a recorded sermon in which he posited that women's suffrage was "one of the greatest mistakes" in American history and that women were "crazy."

Despite his shockingly misogynistic comments, Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson was still invited to appear on Sean Hannity's popular Fox News program.

Rev. Peterson's sermon, which appeared on YouTube in March, was laden with discriminatory and derisive remarks about women. The 62-year-old fundamentalist clergymen, who heads an organization called Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny (BOND), waxed nostalgic for "the good old days," when "men knew that women are crazy and they knew how to deal with them."

Women, who Peterson believes are incapable of coping with life's challenges, "freak out right away," he said.

"They go nuts. They get mad. They get upset," he rambled. "They have no patience because it's not their nature."

"I think one of the greatest mistakes America made was to allow women the opportunity to vote," the reverend continued. "We should have never turned this over to women. And these women are voting for the wrong people. They're voting in people who are evil who agree with them who are gonna take us down the pathway of destruction."

"And this probably was the reason they didn't allow women to vote when men were men," he added. "Because men in the good old days understood that you let them take over, this is what would happen."

Hannity, who denies that there is a conservative "war on women," welcomed Rev. Peterson on his show even after his incredible display of disdain for the opposite sex. But Fox host Kirsten Powers, who sat alongside Peterson during Hannity's "Great American Panel" segment which aired on May 1, called the clergyman out for his sermon.

"I didn't know I was going to be on with him," she said of the man who uses "God's word to teach misogyny."

    Any moronic guest on any news network can say whatever stupid crap that drizzles between their brain cells. It doesn't mean the network as a whole sponsors or agrees with them.

    Some women should vote or even be leaders, but allowing ALL women to vote is really scary, based on experience involving their way of thinking and of leveraging their way.

    He wouldn't say it, but I think the greatest mistakes were the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Immigration Act of 1965. While noble in theory, affirmative action, school busing, forced integration, etc. are not good ideas for anyone involved. Black children would do better on their own with black teachers, given proper resources, because they would not then resist appearing to be "too white" and would do their schoolwork, caring about achievement. Currently they reputedly resist success in every way possible.

    FOX frequently has people on who have controversial veiws. That's their thing., after all. You know Fair & Balances...show all viewpoints. Just because he was invited on the show, doesn't mean they agree with his views.

    Not even close to this country's greatest mistake. Woman have made things better in American not worse. The only people who shouldn't be allowed to vote are the ones who receive entitlements...
