A conservative Black preacher believes it was a mistake to allow women the right to vote, as revealed in a recently-surfaced video.
Jesse Lee Peterson's sermon went viral when he told his congregation:
"One of the primary reasons it is over for America is because women are taking over. They're in high "so-called" powerful positions. They're running companies. They're making decisions. There are a few out there that are logical women and can make sound decisions, but most cannot. One thing I know for sure, without a doubt, is women cannot handle power. It's not in them to handle it in the right way. They don't know what to do with it. God gave man the power and authority over the wife to spiritually guide the world and the right way to go. I think that one of the greatest mistakes America made was to allow women the opportunity to vote. We should have never turned that over to women. There are more women out there voting than men now and these women are voting in the wrong people. They are voting in people who are evil, who agree with them, who are going to take us down this pathway of destruction."

Speaking on Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown law student who made headlines earlier thi year when she testified before Congress, asking that health insurance companied berequired to cover birth control, Peterson continued:
"How did we get to a point where women think we should pay them to have sex? How did we get to a point they want to force us to buy them birth control? They want to have sex out of wedlock, they want to have abortions and they want us to pay for that."
However, this isn't the first time Peterson, who runs an organization calling for Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny, has stirred the pot.
In January, he commented on the work ethic of the Black community, saying "One of the things that I would do is take all black people back to the South and put them on the plantation so they would understand the ethic of working. I'm going to put them all on the plantation. They need a good hard education on what it is to work."
