Virginia Republican Lt. Governor candidate “Bishop” E.W. Jackson really knows how to bring the crazy….
He continued: “I said it because I believe that the Democrat Party has become an anti-God party, I think it’s an anti-life party, I think it’s an anti-family party. And these are all things I think Christians hold to very dearly.”
Let’s disect this. The first point, “anti-god” is simply not true. Anything that christians think is anti-god is simply pro-constitution, pro-knowledge, pro-science etc. etc. I’m an uber lefty and am certainly not anti-god…I don’t believe in a god, so how can I be “anti” something I don’t believe in? This falls along the lines of those christians that atheists “hate god.” Basic language is not their forte it would seem.
What about anti-life? There is a push nationwide by many Democrats to abolish the death penalty. I’m in that camp…it’s outdated, barbaric and best left to the past. Even many catholics I know are against capital punishment. On the other have, most “evangelicals” I know are unashamedly pro-death in this regard. Hello Texas?
Anti-family doesn’t describe any democrat I know. The most glaring example is our support of same-sex relationships and same-sex adoption. What better way to keep a family together than marriage (according to Republicans anyway, I’ve been a single father for a decade and my kid turned out OK….I think? Democrats also support food assistance for the needy, healthcare for all, and a plethora of other social safety systems to help families of all types. So anti-family?
