Anthea Butler, associate professor of Religious Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, discusses the blatant homophobia coming out of the pulpits by pastors on the Religious Right. She is Martin Bashir’s guest on The Last Word.
Three pastors from North Carolina expressed their objection to marriage equality by proposing outrageous solutions to the “gay problem.”
