Megyn Kelly Debate: Pastor Luis Leon Bashes 'Religious Right' in Easter Sermon Attended by Obamas
Rev. Luis Leon used part of his sermon to go after Christian conservatives, saying, “It drives me crazy when the captains of the religious right are always calling us back … for blacks to be back in the back of the bus, for women to be back in the kitchen, for gays to be in the closet, and
for immigrants to be back on their side of the border."
The White House has not condemned the remarks, pointing out that they were only Leon's opinion and that presidents from all parties have gone to services at that church through the years. The roundtable discussion triggered a spirited exchange between radio host David Webb and former Bill Clinton pollster Bernard Whitman, who claimed that Leon was speaking about those on the "religious right fostering an attitude of looking backwards and glorifying the past."
Megyn pressed him on Leon's specific statement that Christian conservative leaders want blacks "to go to the back of the bus."
