Candidate for Va. Lt. Governor warns same-sex marriage leads to bestiality

E.W. Jackson: 'Adam and Steve' will become 'Adam and a Bull'

During a sermon last October, Virginia GOP Lt. Governor nominee E.W. Jackson added to his long list of virulently anti-gay remarks by warning that marriage equality for gays and lesbians will result in the legalization of man-animal unions.

Jackson warned the crowd that if they don’t stop “Adam and Steve” it is going to “soon be Adam and a bull,” arguing that their family, school and community may be “overwhelmed by the torrent of wickedness” if they don’t stop same-sex marriage.

  25. A man (or woman) who is comfortable with their own sexuality is NEVER homophobic. Even Shakespearean understood the concept of “Me thinks the lady doth protest too loudly”. If someone has been brainwashed by religion or parents (or both) that being gay is ‘wrong’ … a ‘sin’, that person will, at ANY COST, supress any inner same-sex desires. (These people will describe homosexuality as a ‘choice’ because they are struggling with that very ‘choice’). Not only that, they will ‘project’ their self-hatred outwardly. Homophobia is the outward expression of self-hatred. Once you understand this, it explains why SOME people are homophobic and others are not. If it is NOT the above … what IS homophobia …? And please don’t give me any crap about ‘religious belief’. Homophobes use holy books as a tool to justify and re-inforce their inner-hatred

  41. I am really tired of people who think they can dictate what someone is attracted to. Nothing should matter, all that should matter is the person is happy

    Who cares what others think is right?

    So let me get this straight, a person who stays for the kids or leads a lie, just to stick to societies view, that is ok because it is Hetero?

    Just let people be happy

  44. Fool. Let ‘s dismiss him and move on.

    Posted on Thursday, May 23, 2013 at 11:59am
  45. we’ll have to ask him if inter-racial marriages then, led to same-sex marriage…to follow his logic, allowing same-sex marriage will then lead to bestiality. (would that be same sex bestiality? or hetero-bestiality)… it’s important our reader know before they can give serious thought to backing your candidacy for Lt. Governor. [quick!- someone call FOX News-I think they have a lead story here]

  52. I’ve never heard a single gay person mention the desire to have sex with animals. The only people who seem preoccupied with having sex with animals is the homophobes. Mr. Jackson, just because having sex with animals preoccupies your mind doesn’t mean it does for other people.

  61. Jon Stewart was right:

    Why do so many of these people go directly from gay people to animal-fucking? There must be a reason behind that. Some disturbing reason…

  102. Christ, we all knew that

    Posted on Thursday, May 23, 2013 at 2:13pm
  103. Ok. So for me, I have had enough. I am a Christian, but the attached Vilifying is not my idea of true Christianity. Many disagree with me and have even asked that I discontinue posts that include advocacy. However I can’t stand silent. So re this attachment; I find it interesting that this speaker chose a “bull” to insinuate that gay marriage will lead to a wicked society… So i guess he is saying gay beastiality as well… And what about all wickedness thats already in society? Is he insinuating that wickedness is caused by allowing gay marriage, as though no wickedness is prevalent already and there was never any before? This is the kind of Religion that turns people away from God and causes people like me to become increasingly disheartened. So basically, society shuns and harms LGBT persons, and then also steals the solace of a sovereign God on top of all that hate. In speeches like this, when man hates and God hates, where then is the hope? How can anyone know the true God this way. Where is the God of love and restoration in these speeches? When society condemns and yet offers nothing in return, where is a person to turn for hope or answers, especially a Questioning individual. This is not about gay marriage alone. There are people, brothers and sisters in Christ, who are LGBTQ, that are rejected and ridiculed. People are being killed because they are gay. These kind of speeches fuel the hate and discrimination. People are being beat and others commit suicide. Families reject and homelessness LGBTQ teens continue to have no where to turn. Rejection causes segregation and LGBT churches end up having to be created as there us not acceptance elsewhere. I am increasingly concerned and increasingly an advocate despite my brothers and sisters recommending me against said advocacy. I choose to love no matter the cost.
