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 Times Dispatch has more:

“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."

and the award for deepest in the closet goes to....

And yet, Jesus stated to love thy neighbor as you love thyself. Last I checked, he didn't have any beef against gay, lesbians, or ANYONE for that matter

Even befriended a whore!

I'm pretty sure I f#*@ed this guy at a truck stop last fall.  I remember he thanked Jesus at the time.  Nice guy.. smooth skin.

Was that you?  Good job!

Seriously?

You know, hearing voices and believing in invisible creatures are signs of insanity. 

He must be a follower of *Republican Jesus* .. You know, the one that doesn't give a shit for the poor, or the hungry, or the meek.. He only cares for corporations, because they are people

Would it be a sacrilege to shout "Amen, Brother"?

Since when does the "Gospel of Jesus Christ" include hate?

Since  the one Westboro wrote!

Ummm, dude . . . God called.  She has rescinded your BFF card.  

All I can say is ROFLMFAO!

This is one of the many reasons why he and Cuccinelli will lose the race.

Gotta be a naked skeleton in that douche-bag's closet!
