A Dallas pastor who hates gays, believes pedophilia and homosexuality are synonymous, declared Islam promotes pedophilia, and asserts that Jewish people are going to hell — is being backed by Real Housewives of Dallas star, D’Andra Simmons and her mother.
D’Andra Simmons and her mother, Dee Simmons, are both proud members of First Baptist Dallas — a Southern Baptist mega-church, in Dallas, Texas — led by controversial Pastor Robert Jeffress. The following excerpt is from promotional church paraphernalia.
Momma Dee and her late husband, Glenn Simmons, played an instrumental role in financially assisting the building of the church’s $130 million mega building that seats 3,000 people. And includes a towering outdoor water fountain, among other things.
“It’s fitting that the life of Dallas businessman Glenn Simmons, who died March 6 , was celebrated today in the sanctuary of First Baptist Dallas. Church pastor Dr. Robert Jeffress and others noted that Simmons, 85, was a committed church member and a leading figure in the $130 million First Baptist building project, which debuts officially on Easter Sunday.” According to D Magazine.
The late Simmons and his wife, Dee, are so loved at First Baptist Dallas that pastor Jeffress named a prominent foyer in the church after the couple.
Pastor Robert Jeffress is known as one of President Trump’s closest evangelical advisers — and the pastor has made a name for himself by attacking the LGBT community, Jews, various faiths and non-Americans.
Below are just a few controversial statements made by the pastor.
- In the following video, Jeffress refers to legalizing gay marriage as a “blunder” and the worst decision made in the Supreme Court’s history.
- Jeffress thinks that abortion caused 9/11
- Robert Jeffress thinks pedophilia and homosexuality are connected
“Amazingly, some gay activists don’t even try to hide the link between homosexuality and pedophilia. There are some who are right now are actively involved in trying to legalize sex between adults and children by lowering the age of consent or removing it altogether. In all fairness, it would be wrong to suggest that all homosexuals to pedophiles. It would be wrong to even suggest that a majority of homosexuals are pedophiles, but the truth nevertheless is there.” Jeffress said.
“There are a disproportionate amount of assaults against children by homosexuals than by heterosexuals, you can’t deny that, and the reason is very clear: homosexuality is perverse, it represents a degradation of a person’s mind and if a person will sink that low and there are no restraints from God’s law, then there is no telling to whatever sins he will commit as well.”
Jeffress compared homosexuals to people who rape animals, claiming: “God’s plan for sexuality is one man with one woman in a lifetime commitment called marriage. Any deviation from that is sin. Of course, I’m always, the retort to that is ‘oh! Are you pulling a Rick Santorum and saying that homosexuality is like bestiality, uh, incest, or pedophilia’? And I say ‘Yes.’. It is just as immoral as those practices.”
- Mormonism is a ‘cult’
- Jews and Muslims going ‘to Hell’

- President Obama paved the way for the Antichrist
- Clinton supporters are going to hell
- Fifty Shades of Grey movie might have been a signifier of the end times
D’Andra’s husband, Jeremy Lock, is also a member of First Baptist Dallas and plays an active role in church programs. In April 2017, he was baptized at Pastor Jeffress controversial chapel.
