E.W. Jackson: ‘Growing hostility against Christianity’
http://www.politico.com ^ | 10/11/13 | By KATIE GLUECK

Posted on 10/19/2013 6:05:51 PM PDT by Maelstorm

In a fiery speech to social conservatives Friday, Virginia lieutenant governor candidate E.W. Jackson blasted the media for questioning his positions on social issues. Jackson, a bishop, said that when he first got into the race he was asked by reporters about controversial statements he has made concerning Planned Parenthood (which he once compared to the Ku Klux Klan) and gay marriage.

“Well, I want to go on record here,” Jackson said, speaking at the Values Voter Summit. “I didn’t apologize then, I don’t apologize now and I will never apologize for standing up for the truth.”

I certainly support him and when I’ve been talking to voters even especially Democrat blacks many of them are planning to vote for him even if not Cuccinelli and Obenshain.

Howw can there be growing Hostility to Christians since Saint Barry Of Chicago a devout “believer” has Ascended to the Throne?

its so ODD that the lefts heros are such vehement anti Christians ...except...a;;eged;y for Barack Obama.

Ive noticed a tremendous openess on the part of Christ Bashers to be far more vehement with their disrespect for Christ since THE ONE came on the scene.

Even in the past couple of years, Planned Parenthood staffers were caught on tape being "okay" with a donation targeted specifically to wiping out black babies.

Politico whores for the Democrat agenda.

Nothing Jackson has said is not true. Abortion has been more detrimental to Blacks as a racial group than the Klan. Its a measurable fact. Barack Obama will represent the peak of black political power(though they really haven’t gotten anything from it economically) largely because of abortion. The difference is the media won’t even discuss the substance of the statements they just immediately label it extreme knowing that is often enough. What we need to start doing is doing what Lonegan did with Booker. Turn the extremist label back on them and in interviews label the media for what they are an extension of the Democrat party.

Exactly for a supposed Christian Obama doesn’t show it. I personally believe he is an atheist. He’s certainly not a Christ believer.

I wish more people would stand up for their views and values like that. This man may turn out to be a complete bum but if more people would stand up for their beliefs like this man, at least we would know where they stand.

Don’t forget the boos at the 2012 DNC convention when the party bosses shoe horned in references to God and Israel.

I always appreciate straight talk. Jackson is the real deal. He came from nothing, spend his early years in foster care, was a Marine, went from being a horrible student to Graduating from Harvard.

Hes as evil as anything Ive encountered in the political arena. His claim to love muslims....is problematic, as he may in fact be a Mohammadan. His love for The "Evening Call TO Prayer...and the undue bizarre manner in which he bends over backwards for the worst sort of Jihadists...leads me to believe..he is in fact "one of them".. which may be WORSE than simply being an atheist.

He isabove all else.....

Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t the Lt. Governor elected separately to Cuccinelli? Might we end up with a McAuliffe/Jackson admin? I thought I had read Jackson actually runs ahead for Lt. Governor.

If you can provide for yourself, or look to private charities for your care and positive outlook, you don’t NEED the government.

Keeping the masses a dependent underclass is their goal.

Yes it could actually be any combination of the three races. Obenshain could win, Jackson could win, and Cuccinelli could win. Jackson supporters are by far the most enthusiastic the problem Jackson has is he still has lower name recognition. Unfortunately our conservative media doesn’t do its job very well promoting conservative candidates. Honestly they haven’t did very good promoting either the NJ special election or the Virginia election. Instead they’ve let Terry McAuliffe totally dominate the race and even with that the most recent polls show a 7 point race with lots of undecideds.

Private Giving has gone done precipitously since the arrival of the Ultimatel Progressive and company....

as one cant simply volunteer to pay inappropriate bloated taxes....,many are left with no choice but to cut back on giving to CHARITY.

Mister Lefty and his crew of thugs know that and relish their participation in the purposeful destruction of Faith Based Giving. They are killing tow birds with that one stone. Grabbing all of our cash they can...and working to eliminate the real Church...in America.

Thanks Maelstorm.
...when he first got into the race he was asked by reporters about controversial statements he has made concerning Planned Parenthood (which he once compared to the Ku Klux Klan) and gay marriage.

Dead Babyhood IS the KKK.

One of Planned Parenthood’s dirty secrets:
It’s founder, Margeret Sanger, was a speaker at a KKK event promoting her eugenics (genocide_ program.

Sanger created PP to impose genocide on the black population...and not unlike Hitler’s leftwing “National Socialist Workers Party”.

Thanks Maelstorm, that’s good to hear. I’ll have to keep an eye on him in the future. Another in the image of Allen West I hope.
