E.W. Jackson once said there is a direct connection between gays and those who sexually abuse children:

He's also said that gays are "sick people":

"Their minds are perverted, they’re frankly very sick people psychologically, mentally and emotionally and they see everything through the lens of homosexuality. When they talk about love they’re not talking about love, they’re talking about homosexual sex. So they can’t see clearly. Jesus said ‘when the eye is dark the body is full of darkness.’ Let me come back to this whole issue of their using the black community because here again some of the most vicious attacks ever leveled against any black conservative or black Christian for that matter has come out of the homosexual community. "

He thinks we gay folk "poison culture":

"Homosexuality is a horrible sin, it poisons culture, it destroys families, it destroys societies; it brings the judgment of God unlike very few things that we can think of."

Then there was the time he say marriage equality for same-sex couples will lead to bestiality ("Adam and a Bull"):

Oh yeah—and Jackson has also claimed that liberalism has killed more Black Americans than slavery, Jim Crow, or the KKK:


Now to me, that sounds like extremism.  Call me oversensitive if you must.

But to the National Organization For Marriage's president?  Why this kind of thing sounds like the mark of a principled leader:

"I also want to commend the principled leader running alongside Cuccinelli for the office of Lieutenant Governor — E. W. Jackson. Dr. Jackson is a not only a man of faith, he's a brilliant and highly regarded conservative leader. He is a Baptist minister who studied at Harvard Divinity School, and holds a law degree from Harvard Law School. He graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Massachusetts. He's an accomplished author and lecturer, and has been a conservative leader for decades.

This drives the left batty, because Dr. Jackson is also African American. The left can't stomach the idea of an African American conservative, especially one who is as knowledgeable and persuasive as Dr. Jackson."

"Drives the left batty"?  Oh please, B.B!  Most people on "the left" are thanking their lucky stars for the early Christmas present that is E.W. "Huge Liability" Jackson!
