Pastors have a tremendous influence over their congregations who believe his words are inspired by God. The problem is that many pastors make stuff up to fit their own agenda.
Then they make absurd statements such as:
"The idea that religion and politics don't mix was invented by the Devil to keep Christians from running their own country."

"The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."
– Pat Robertson
