Robert J Jeffress, Jr., is the pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, a megachurch with 11,000 members. He hosts the program, Pathway to Victory, which is broadcast on more than 1,200 television stations and dozens of radio outlets. Jeffress has gained notoriety, in part, for his statements about the LGBT community. In 2011, Jeffress told a crowd at the Values Voters Summit that gays should not be allowed in the military because “seventy percent of the gay population” has AIDS.
