‘Would you want your daughter to draw the attention of older men?’ Radio star Jackie ‘O’ Henderson is outraged as a Christian pastor says she shouldn’t let her child wear shorts
Radio personality Jackie ‘O’ Henderson clashed with outspoken Christian pastor Gino Jennings on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Friday.
The American preacher, who is known for his controversial views on female modesty, was being interviewed via telephone to promote his upcoming visit to Australia.
During the segment, KIIS FM host Kyle Sandilands baited Jennings by revealing personal information that he knew the pastor wouldn’t approve of.

Kyle confessed he once had sex with a transsexual prostitute, boasted that newsreader Brooklyn Ross is openly gay and recalled how Jackie once took a naked bath with a female friend.
It was on this last point that Jennings expressed particular disapproval.
‘Of course it’s not okay. No, no, it is very inappropriate,’ he said. ‘Your nakedness is your nakedness, not to be advertised for anyone to see.’
Jennings added: ‘Your naked body may be a beautiful thing but the Bible says “cover up the shame of thy nakedness”.
‘Our young women and our young men, not just in American but abroad, they are advertising their body parts and go didn’t give us a body to advertise so the public can see it.’
Elsewhere in the interview, things became tense when Jackie said that she allows her eight-year-old daughter Kitty to wear shorts in the summer months.
Jennings said that this may invite older men to look at her child, a suggestion that Jackie found completely outrageous.
‘What? Am I supposed to cover her up in tracksuit pants in summer?’ she asked.
‘Would you want your daughter to draw attention of a man old enough to be her father?’ Jennings replied, before Kyle stepped in and move the conversation along.
Gino Jennings is the founder and current general overseer of the First Church of our Lord Jesus Christ (FCOOLJC) in Philadelphia.
He is best known for his controversial sermons against women wearing excessive makeup, fake hair, wigs, and jewellery in church.
A video of an early 2018 sermon, in which he says that ‘Christian looking whores’ resemble ‘prostitutes’, went viral around the world.
Jennings’ outlandish statements are a running joke on The Kyle and Jackie O Show, but are not endorsed by the program.
