The three leading Democratic presidential candidates – all ardent supporters of LGBTQ rights, has the campaign stops in the last two months in a Baptist Church enough, led by a controversial Las Vegas pastor who believes that being gay is “to you in the hell.”

Sens. Kamala Harris in California, and Cory Booker from New Jersey, both at services this past weekend in Rev. Robert E. Fowler Sr. of victory Missionary Baptist Church in Las Vegas, while sen Bernie Sanders of Vermont held a town hall in the Church, in the last month.

The Mercury News reported this week on the pastor story of the finding, it is unclear whether the three candidates knew about his views, which were not hidden just. The Las Vegas Review-Journal covered the provocative pastor in 2017, and Fowler himself spoke publicly about the issue for a long time.

“[W]hether you commit adultery, if you commit adultery, whether you’re a child molester, you gossip, you lie, you cheat on your taxes, you pay tithing, things, nature — all of this is packaged together as sin, along with homosexuality,” Fowler said in a 2013 interview. “And so at our Church, we do not believe that there is a sin that is greater than anything else.”

Despite the embrace, the three liberal presidential candidate, Fowler ‘ s views on homosexuality seem to have little changed since then, with the pastor, say, the Bay Area News Group on Sunday that “homosexuality, adultery, fornication, all sexual sins mentioned in the Holy Scriptures.”


“Every sin, if you break the law in one area, have you broken in all areas,” he added. “If you mess up in one area, which is enough to send you into hell without sin pretty bad for me.”

The campaign stops in Fowler ‘ s Church, Booker, Harris and Sanders are not for the first time, the pastor has accepted the Democratic power in the player – Nevada Attorney General Aaron Ford and state Assemblyman Jason Frierson were both not criticized in 2017 for members of the congregation of his Church – but the last stop, checked by the candidates point out the dangers of presidential hopefuls face when the local leadership and officials right before.


“It’s a hard line to achieve because you want to people, the members of these communities, and there are probably the members of the community who do not believe this view,” Melissa Michelson, a Menlo College political science professor, said the San Jose Mercury News. “But it is important for candidates to be more careful about this kind of thing, because it sends a message that this type of language is necessarily a dealbreaker.”


In a statement to the Mercury News, ” Harris campaign, said that the California legislature was the “support and advocacy for LGBTQ equality, unshakable in the course of their career. You continue to visit houses of worship across the country to address members of the community about the pressing problems we face as a nation.”

Booker and Sanders’ campaigns did not respond to a request for comment.
