Gays ‘Sexualize’ Children And 9 Other Crazy Things GOP Candidate E.W. Jackson Says

Rabies should not be a political platform

Rabies should not be a political platform

We know that the Republicans are running Ken “Cuckoo” Cuccinelli for the office of governor of the great state of Virginia. Well, meet the man they hope will be his Lt. Governor: E.W Jackson. Jackson is a pastor so far to the right he makes Pat Robertson look like a pagan. His remarks about gays and Democrats are particularly obnoxious. His campaign page says – get this – that he will “carry the torch of freedom for all Virginians…” That is, unless you are LGBT or a Democrat in which case he carries a torch alright – to burn you at the stake.

Here’s a top (bottom?) 10 list of disgusting and hateful things E. W Jackson has said about gays, Democrats and President Obama:

1. “Homosexuality is a horrible sin, it poisons culture, it destroys families, it destroys societies; it brings the judgment of God unlike very few things that we can think of.” (source)

2. “Look, it also attempts to poison our children, divide them from their parents and the teaching of the church and basically turn them into pawns for that movement so that they can sexualize them at the earliest possible age. It really is insidious and I agree with you, it is a super sin.” (source)

3. “If you don’t, (go along with them) you are the enemy and they want you declared a hate group, they want you declared a far-right-wing nut who needs to be perhaps even put in jail. This is one of the concerns I have with a party that is affiliated with this kind of extremism.” (source)

4. “The military has been decimated by this lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender policy that has now been implemented. It’s an abomination and it’s only going to weaken us militarily and they need to undo it and we need to keep the pressure on to let them know that that’s what we expect.” (source)

5. “Democrats now have fully embraced an abortion policy that amounts to infanticide. They have also made the lesbian-homosexual-bisexual-transgender agenda their vision for America. How have they managed to hold on to black Christians in spite of an agenda worthy of the Antichrist?” (source)

6. “President Obama has said we should admire same-sex relationships. The Bible condemns them. President Obama is in favor of even allowing a child inadvertently born alive that was intended to be aborted to die anyway. That’s a complete violation of the Word of God, which says, ‘Choose life that you and your children may live’ (Deuteronomy 30:19),’ the bishop cites. So these ministers who are encouraging their congregations to support this abomination are going to have to answer to God.” (source)

7. “If he (President Obama) were white with the associations that he’s had I don’t think he would have gotten elected, I think the American people would have said ‘no this guy is potentially too dangerous to put in the power of the presidency.’ With his association with Bill Ayers, with Jeremiah Wright, his association growing up with a lot of Communists and having this apparently very close relationship with Islam. I don’t think anybody fully knows just how close that relationship is yet, I think he downplays it, but clearly he grew up in a Muslim country, he knows the Koran and so he seems to have a lot of sympathy for even radical Islam, unwilling to call it terrorism, unwilling to deal with it.” (source)

8. “They (Democrats) don’t love us (minorities). I liken them to slave masters who brag about how good their slaves are and how well-behaved they are but let them try to be free, let them try to escape and then you find out that they don’t really think very much of them.” (source)

9. “Planned Parenthood, has been far more lethal to Black lives than the KKK ever was.”(source)

10. “So it’s just clear to me that we’ve got in a sense an administration that’s decided it’s not interested in God, the Bible, Christianity or any of that, it’s interested in pursuing its own willful agenda and if you get in the way, they’re going to try to hurt you.” (source)

That’s just some of the hateful spewing that came out of this guys’ mouth. He tried – and still is trying – to “lead an Exodus” of blacks from the Democratic Party. He said that God would turn blacks “overwhelmingly” against Obama in 2012. Yeah, not so much. Telling people that a vote for him is a vote for “the glory of God” isn’t arrogant at all, right? For all the good it did him in his Senate race last year, I guess God takes umbrage at claims like that. And so He should. E.W. Jackson is the worst kind of politician: the kind who thinks that he, and he alone, speaks for God. That is always a giant red flag. So many overbearing dictator types like to think that they are speaking for the Supreme Being but it always turns out that they are speaking only for themselves. So it is with this egomaniac. Let’s hope that either Aneesh Chopra or Ralph Northam beats him at the polls. I shudder to think what Virginia would be like with this guy in the state house.
