E.W. Jackson Exhibits The Christian Virtue Of Lying About His Homophobia

What better way for a minister to embody the virtues of Christianity than by lying through his teeth. In a television interview, E.W. Jackson, the GOP’s nominee for lieutenant governor in Virginia, set his pants ablaze by denying all the homophobic comments he is on tape for having made.

Jackson started the interview by on WUSA by proclaiming, “Probably most of what they hear in the mainstream media from my opponent is not true,” and describing himself as a “unifying figure most of my life.”

Anchor Derek McGinty asked the obvious question: “Did you say that gay people live a sick lifestyle, they’re sick people?”

“Never said that,” Jackson responded. “What I’ve said is I think that the movement, the effort to change the culture is an effort to pervert things. But look, here’s the thing. I said that in the context of ministry. And as a minister, I teach what? The Bible. I’m not running to be minister of Virginia or bishop of Virginia.”

In fact, just last year, Jackson was recorded saying about LGBT people that “their minds are perverted, they’re frankly very sick people psychologically, mentally and emotionally and they see everything through the lens of homosexuality.”

Not to be stopped, Jackson proceeded to gripped the shovel tighter and dig himself into a deeper whole. Challenged about his comments that God would punish the military because of gay rights, the candidate lied yet again.

Let me put this to you Reverend. You said that the U.S. Armed Forces are going to be punished by God because of the end of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell …”

“Never said that. That’s absolutely, categorically not true. See that’s what I mean. I’ve never said anything like that because I don’t believe it. And there are other things that have been said that I said and I simply didn’t say them.”

Fortunately, Right Wing Watch keeps surfacing Jackson’s past comments. The latest: homosexuality is “destructive” and Obama will “teach children homosexuality.”

So who are you going to believe? E.W. Jackson or your lying ears?

      he is quite willing to lie about absolutely anything. he claims to have been raised in a foster home with no plumbing or food. unfortunately for him there are several living witnesses to dispute his claims and call him out on his lies.

      He’s a piece of garbage and will never be elected lt. governor. He claims he gets his truths from the Bible, yet the Bible doesn’t say or support his lies. He should be more worried about burning in Hell than Obama teaching children homosexuality. What rubbish!
