Robert Jeffress, senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Dallas

Can't Believe We Missed Robert Jeffress' "Why Oprah Is Not O.K." Sermon

Safe to assume that at some point, First Baptist Church in downtown Dallas will post Robert Jeffress' Sunday-morning "Why Gay Is Not O.K." speech, as the church does have its own YouTube channel and a well-stocked archive of its recent sermons. (Who knew, he also doesn't like Oprah Winfrey.) But Jeffress wasn't being entirely truthful yesterday when he told The Dallas Morning News that Sunday morning was "the first time that he's preached about homosexuality since being elected senior pastor of the 10,000-member church last year."

In the introduction to his "Politically Incorrect" sermon series in September -- in which he also said, "Mormonism, Islam, Judaism and Hinduism ... lead people to an eternity of separation from God in hell" -- Jeffress did sneak-peak his two-part talk on "Why Gay is Not O.K." As in: "Homosexualiy is a perversion... It is a twisting of God's plan for human sexuality. By the way, we don't use that truth to discriminate against or to mistreat or to bash homosexuals. What we're saying is, God has a plan for sexuality, and here is the plan: one man with one woman for life." --Robert Wilonsky
