Two years ago, E.W. Jackson launched an effort calling for "a mass Exodus of Christians from the Democrat [sic] Party" on the grounds that the party's support for marriage equality was an attack on God and the Bible. Jackson's effort, of course, had no discernible impact on the 2012 election but it did help him raise is profile with the Republican Party, which one year later backed his disastrous bid for lieutenant governor of Virginia. Naturally, this year Jackson is once again calling for an “exodus”again this year, releasing a video in which he calls upon... MORE >
5 Years After Passage Of Hate Crimes Law, Religious Right's Dire Predictions Still Haven't Come True

Here we go again. If Religious Right activists are to be believed, any day now the government will throw pastors in jail, have people “fined $500 a day” for reading the Bible and “start rolling out the boxcars to start hauling off Christians.” These are among the claims that were made this year by conservative politicians and movement leaders, who warn that America is now witnessing a “war on religion.” Similar dire warnings about the federal hate crimes law that was passed five years ago today have proven to be utterly false. The apocalyptic... MORE >

Last month, Rep. Trent Franks appeared on a conference call with Virginia pastor and failed lieutenant governor candidate E.W. Jackson to discuss dangers to America’s survival, where they both agreed that the separation of church and state is bringing the country down. Jackson asked the Arizona congressman about the “profound threat to Christianity in general and to our Christian foundations in this country,” which he said comes from President Obama and the “drumbeat of atheism that attacks everything, ‘get the cross down,’ ‘don’t show a Bible...

After months of controversy, megachurch pastor Mark Driscoll has resigned. Rick Santorum says that "I’m doing everything right now as if I’m running" for president. Laurie Higgins says that moderate Republicans must be defeated at the ballot box because otherwise "the Democratic wing of the Republican Party will grow. It’s a ravenous beast devouring the squishy, spineless, chestless, tasteless, bootless bodies of conservatives." E.W. Jackson is launching a new movement designed to protect Christians from "growing hostility,... MORE >

In a conference call this week with E.W. Jackson, Family Research Council vice president Jerry Boykin warned that to counteract the population growth of America’s Muslim minority, “Americans need to have more babies and populate this country with red-blooded patriotic Americans.” Fearing that America would soon go the way of a Europe that he claimed is “hopelessly lost” to Muslim population growth, Boykin insisted that “Americans” (among whom he evidently doesn’t include Muslim-Americans) must increase the average birth rate to supersede that of...

E.W. Jackson: A Thousand Years From Now, Marriage Will Still Be One Man And One Woman 'Because God Ordained It So'

E.W. Jackson closed out last night's session at the Values Voter Summit by lashing out at those pushing for marriage equality, thundering, "How dare you try to redefine an institution that God himself ordained!" "The fact of the matter is they can call a union other than one man and one woman by any name they choose," Jackson proclaimed," but the reality is you can re-write a thousand dictionaries, you can put on a thousand TV shows, you can make a thousand headlines, you can have a thousand coming out parties, you can have a thousand politicians affirm the lie,...

This weekend, Republican elected officials including Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Rand Paul, and Gov. Bobby Jindal will take part in what has become an annual ritual for potential GOP presidential contenders: they will seek to curry the favor of the Religious Right by speaking at the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit. In doing so, they put themselves in the company of some of the most radical groups and activists working today to dehumanize LGBT people, roll back reproductive rights, tear down the wall between church and state, and deny free exercise rights to religious minorities....

E.W. Jackson: Those Who Are 'Against God' Are Intensifying Attacks Because They Know 'We Cannot Be Defeated'
SUBMITTED BY: Kyle Mantyla, Monday 09/15/2014, 12:20pm
E.W. Jackson, the failed GOP nominee for lieutenant governor in Virginia, was among the speakers at last night's "Star Spangled Sunday" event, where he declared that "the forces ... against God" are ramping up their attacks on Christians in America because they know that "we cannot be defeated." Jackson called on Christians to be bold and take a stand, knowing that "we cannot lose because the God we serve is on the throne and if God be for us, who can be against us?" He said that just as the British continued to attack Fort McHenry so long as the... MORE >
