E.W. Jackson Says He Knows God Better Than The Pope & Instructs Christians To Continue Hating Gays
E.W. Jackson has declared himself more infallible and holy than the Pope after last week's comments from the Pontiff. Speaking in a sermon over the weekend, the republican candidate for Virginia's lieutenant governor defies the pope to say nope, god actually does want you to continue warring against the LGBT community.
“The family was ordained by God. He ordained it one man and one woman in the bonds of holy matrimony,” Jackson said. “(In the Bible) I don’t hear anything about two people of the same sex being married,” he said.
Jackson said Sunday: “I know even the pope has said when we talk about these things, we imply a kind of intolerance. That is not the point at all. The point is to be true to the word of God. The point is to stand up and tell the truth. There is no better way found, ever, to raise children than with a mother and a father in the home. Even sociologically, you can make the argument.”
But Jackson said that “this is not about hating people based on their sexual orientation or based on same-sex relationships or having bigotry against them,” but about whether “this culture is going to remain a culture based on Judeo-Christian values and principles, or whether we’re going to become something else.”
In describing himself, Jackson said: “I am a preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, that is really who I am. I am called to do something in addition to that right now, but there is no higher priority and no higher office than being a proclaimer of the Gospel of Jesus Christ."
