VA Lt. Gov. Candidate Says God Won’t Bless The Military Because Of Marriage Equality

E.W. Jackson, the minister that the Virginia GOP chose as its nominee for lieutenant governor out of a surfeit of self-destructive urges, continues to do his bit to contribute to the party’s annihilation at the polls next Tuesday. In his latest rant to come to light, Jackson insists that the “God will stop blessing the military” because the Pentagon allows chaplains to marry same-sex couples.

Jackson made his comments at a 2011 Virginia Family Foundation summit, but there’s no reason to think he’s changed his opinion since then. If anything, Jackson has doubled down on the religious right rhetoric during the campaign. Among his  pearls of wisdom during the campaign: “The President has declared June as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Pride Month. Well that just makes me feel ikky all over. Yuk!” “It was part of God’s plan to beget the Tea Party. “ (The same could be said of disease, however.) “The rabid radical homosexual activist movement” is “desecrating the sacraments.” “I know even the pope has said when we talk about these things [opposition to marriage equality], 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.”

Jackson is the perfect running mate for Ken Cuccinelli, the GOP gubernatorial nominee, who would like to bring back sodomy laws even though the Supreme Court says they are unconstitutional. The good news here: polls show the duo trailing badly and by Tuesday night they may just be two more political has-beens.

      Don’t worry, no matter how low they sink in the polls, this Virginian will be there next Tuesday to be one more vote against Cooch and this clown. McAuliffe, Northam & Herring, 2013.

      America hasn’t won any wars since they integrated the military. Maybe God is angry with that whole racial integration idea.

      How about just speaking your “truth” instead of legislatively shoving it down all of the civilized world’s collective throats!
