E.W. Jackson: Using my past anti-gay statements against me is ‘persecution’

E. W. Jackson, the Republican candidate for Lt. Governor in Virginia, was the guest on Bryan Fischer’s radio program on Monday where he was treated to a sympathetic interview by a host who shares his radical views.

During the discussion, Jackson stood by his anti-gay and anti-abortion views and suggested that efforts to hold him accountable for his previous statements now that he is running for office was somehow an unconstitutional religious test.

Jackson seems to believe that things he said about political issues are not relevant to his political candidacy because he said those things in his capacity as a minister and so using them against him in his campaign amounts to anti-Christian persecution.


Jackson has previously warned that marriage equality for gays and lesbians will result in the legalization of man-animal unions, and has referred to gays as “very sick people.”
