KARA MCKINNEY (HOST): Remember how back in the day about 10 or so years ago when the gay marriage debate was really taking off and we had the Supreme Court case and everything going on at the time it was, well, what goes on in people's bedroom isn't anyone else's business and now of course they brought the bedroom to the streets. And now we have to visualize everything, see it all, hear all the gross itty-bitty degenerate details of other people's lives, and then we're being forced to encourage it and to promote it. And since you're a pastor and given your background with that with spiritual matters, what do you make of America — we're supposed to be founded on Judeo-Christian principles — dedicating an entire month to pride, one of the seven deadly sins; what do you make of that?

JESSE LEE PETERSON (GUEST): I think that we as Christians must stand up and fight against evil. Our battle is a warfare between good and evil, right versus wrong. It's not — it's not about men and women. It's about what's right. And if we continue to go down this road and allow evil to prevail in our country, it can only lead to destruction. We must love God so that we can overcome fear. Because greater is he that's in us than he that's in the world. And we have to change our relationship with things and not be worried about a job or what we going to lose. Our soul is more valuable than material things. And they're controlling the Christians by threatening to take material things away from them. So we got to stand up. We should have never fallen for this idea that oh, we just want to come out of the closet. Just let us out of the closet. And then they said, oh, we want to go to church. But we don't want to be talked about at church. So, a lot of preachers stopped mentioning that homosexuality is wrong, that something has gone wrong and they must repent and return to God. Now they've taken over the churches. There are a lot of preachers afraid to speak out against so-called Pride Month.

You know, I started the white history month in July. White — this is our fourth year coming up where we're celebrating white history. And what I've noticed that in America, a country that was founded by white people and created by white people, one of the greatest country on this side of heaven. And so white people — invited all these other — allowed all this other stuff to happen but you can celebrate everything but white history. We must remember white history, because if it wasn't for that, there would be no America. And so they got Black history, women history, Mexican history, so-called gay pride. What's happy about being perverted? There's nothing good about that, living in sin, right? And -- but we celebrate — I don't — but they celebrate that. But when it comes to white history they're afraid to even mention white history. But we got to bring that back because that's who made America great. We got to show our appreciation. And not one Christian should be celebrating gay pride. They should be praying that these people repent and overcome the fallen state, return to the father. God is not pleased in allowing that his children are allowing this to happen in a Christian country. It's not a secular country. It's a Christian country. So we got to bring back Christianity and love.

MCKINNEY: You're exactly right because all of us are fallen in sin. We all have our sins and our flaws and our vices, but we don't make that the center of our personality. And we don't identify it. You know, if someone's a liar they shouldn't go around and say having a lying flag and you know and say I'm a liar, and that's who I am, and that's everything you need to know about me. No, because as Christians and a Christian nation we find our identity in Jesus Christ and then from there everything flows from that. And by giving ourselves up to God, we truly find real individualism, you know, a true individualism by God not by going off on our own weird patterns. And so we should be helping each other to become better versions of ourselves and not to stay mired down into our own sins. We run up something earlier — it's interesting that they do the pride flags and you see it everywhere, you see the parades, it's on all the logos, it's really shoved in your face, especially during this month. And it's because we're being told that this is a marginalized community. People in the LGBT community, they feel so scared; they're not allowed to speak. And yet it's funny, you know, we see it in June a lot but we see it in the other 11 months all the time. When can we stop saying that this is a marginalized group and say that they're the ones who wield all the power in this country because everything I'm saying now will get me canceled on any other channel.
