Bishop Harry Jackson: The Black Church Kept Gay Marriage Out Of Maryland

Bishop Harry Jackson credits “the church rising up” for keeping Maryland lawmakers from enacting a same-sex marriage bill. But not just any church!

“It took the church coming out — the black church — and telling its representatives ‘Don’t listen to party leadership, understand that you have to come back to your own community,'” Jackson tells CBN, adding that he and his supporters “plan to vote some folks out of office” who refuse to join up with his bigoted ways.

“The church was strong,” adds Jackson, “and the black church raise up the banner of Jesus and win the day for the church in Maryland.” Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelu. [via]
