The 10 Most Anti-Gay Statements From The Republican Nominee For Lt. Governor Of Virginia

The Virginia Republican Party picked conservative minister E.W. Jackson as their nominee for lieutenant governor Saturday night. Jackson will run alongside Ken Cuccinelli.

1. "I believe there is a direct connection" [between being gay and being a pedophile].


"These people are out to transform the culture. And they believe that sexuality is how everybody ought to be defined. And that means sexual freedom, sexual license to do whatever you want to do. And I know their people say, well, 'It's unfair to associate homosexuality with pedophilia or some of these other previsions.' But I believe that there is a direct connection, because what they really want is absolute sexual freedom."

2. In his Senate run on the issue page, he said he would lead the fight to "stop our government from using the law to promote the normalization of homosexuality in society."

Lead the fight to end the open practice of homosexuality, bisexuality and, transgender behavior in the armed forces, and stop our government from using the law to promote the normalization of homosexuality in society and persecute Christians for holding to the biblical view that it is sin.

3. Gays attempt to "sexualize people" at "the earliest possible age."

I could not agree with you more. 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.

4. Gays are "frankly very sick people..."

Their minds are perverted, they're frankly very sick people psychologically, mentally and emotionally and they see everything through the lens of homosexuality. When they talk about love they're not talking about love, they're talking about homosexual sex. So they can't see clearly.

5. "The Democrat Party has equated homosexuality with being black..."

The Democrat Party has created an unholy alliance between certain so-called civil rights readers and Planned Parenthood, which has killed unborn black babies by the tens of millions! The Democrat Party has equated homosexuality with being black, which is another outrageous lie. We as Christians ought to know better. Shame on us for allowing ourselves to be sold to the highest bidder. Our ancestors were sold against their will centuries ago, but we're going to the slave market voluntarily today! The time has come to take a stand. Come out from among them. Exodus now!

6. On last year's boycott of Chick-fil-A, he said gays "want to destroy the very faith which established this nation..."

"This is further proof of the insidious and dangerous hatred by homosexual activists of any Christian who dares try to live out their biblical values. The problem in society today is not hatred of homosexuals, but hatred by homosexuals of anyone who refuses to say 'amen' to their sexual behavior."

"They want to destroy the very faith which established this nation, its very foundation, because it is an affront to them and they want a sexually amoral society remade in their image."

"When we do programs to support the family, we are not thinking about homosexuality, but for homosexuals, any endorsement of the family as God ordained it is an attack on them. It demonstrates their paranoid obsession with getting the society to endorse their lifestyle and silencing those who won't."

"The bigotry is so virulent that it may be time to make Christians a protected class. Right now 'Christo-phobia' and 'Biblo-phobia' are at such a fever pitch among leftists and homosexual activists, and they need to be stopped before they get carried away in their zeal and do bodily harm to someone. Once again we must remind them our Constitution says, 'freedom of religion' and not 'freedom from religion.'"

7. The repeal of DADT was "a disaster of historic proportions and it must be reinstated."

"The study justifying the policy change was an exercise in deception. The policy question was never put to the troops. The administration started with a bias in favor of repealing the law and then designed a study to justify their preconceptions. The idea that 70% of the military favored the policy is a lie. The unintended consequences on the military are staggering. Does this include transgender and transvestite individuals? What happens if homosexuals are married in one of the states which allow same sex marriage? Will the military recognize those marriages? There are too many unanswered questions. What of Christians who believe that homosexuality is sin? Are they to be silenced? Subjected to discipline or discharge? Will they live in close quarters with men or women attracted to the same sex? When homosexuality is given protected status, Christians are muzzled or persecuted for their beliefs, and their First Amendment Rights are trampled. This has happened in corporations all over America. The message is 'be silent or lose your job.' In the military, you cannot merely find another job. If keeping qualified people is the priority, what about the Christians who may be forced to leave the military because the environment is hostile to their faith? The message from Gates and Mullen is, 'Get out.' The repeal of the 'Don't Ask Don't Tell' law is a disaster of historic proportions and it must be reinstated. My organization and others will to fight to make sure that happens."

8. "I know people who have been delivered from homosexuality..."

According to Bishop Jackson, CBC members insult the black community by "conflating the black struggle for civil rights with the demands of radical homosexuals for marriage and other special rights." He calls it "one of the most preposterous frauds ever perpetrated on a people." In a recent speech before a black Christian men's group in Williamsburg, Virginia, Bishop Jackson said, "Homosexuals have no history of slavery, Jim Crow, lynching or being legally defined as 2/3 of a person. I have known people who have been delivered from homosexuality. I have never known anyone to be delivered from being black. The Democrat Party's commitment to abortion, homosexuality and moral relativism is an affront to the values of the black Christian community. It is a 'Coalition of the godless.' Black Christians do not belong in a 'coalition of the godless,' and should not vote for those who are."

9. Gay marriage is a "sledgehammer used to shatter our Judeo-Christian culture."

New York's decision to allow same-sex people to marry is another government sledgehammer used to shatter our Judeo-Christian culture. As a black American, proud of our civil rights progress, I speak for most black citizens when I say it is offensive that sexual preference has been elevated to the equivalent of a racial characteristic such as skin color. The two could not be more dissimilar. One is an outward characteristic. The other is sexual behavior. It denigrates the illustrious struggle for equality for Americans of African descent to associate us with the homosexual demand that society accept and approve their behavior.

10. Homosexuality is "killing black men by the thousands" because of HIV. Pro-gay rights liberals have "have done more to kill black folks whom they claim so much to love than the Ku Klux Klan, lynching and slavery and Jim Crow ever did..."

E.W. Jackson: It just incenses me when they say "you're haters." We don't hate anybody, we don't hate anybody, we disagree with them, we don't hate them, we love them, we pray for them, but truth is truth, right is right. We've got to stand up because what they're doing, what they're promoting is killing people, and you're right, it is killing black men by the thousands.

Interviewer: If the media cared more, if people actually cared more about these people, they would actually associate the behavior with the problem, but it is like the elephant in the room, it is the one thing you can't talk about, we see young African-American men contracting HIV at astonishing rates and yet it's not talked about at all as a problem of homosexual behavior, that's the astonishing thing.

E.W. Jackson: If you talk about it, you'll be accused of being a racist just for bringing it up, which is so stupid. Liberalism and their ideas have done more to kill black folks whom they claim so much to love than the Ku Klux Klan, lynching and slavery and Jim Crow ever did, now that's a fact.
