Bishop Harry Jackson, a member of Donald Trump’s evangelical advisory board, joined fellow advisory board member Mark Burns on his “The Colors That Unite” program on Sunday to discuss “why African Americans should vote for Donald Trump.”
Responding to a caller who said that she feared for her white son and his wife who live near Ferguson, Missouri, Jackson directed listeners to his “The Reconciled Church” website, which he said offers ways to combat “the problem of race in America, black lives matter and all of that.”
But, he said, nothing can be done without “a spiritual awakening,” which can never be achieved under Hillary Clinton “because her agenda is anchored in anti-biblical darkness”:
I think we win this battle against racism heart to heart, house to house, community to community. And I think we’ll win, ultimately, we need a spiritual awakening in America because of its sin. Now if we promote, though, unrighteous ideas like promulgating abortion … then we’ll hinder God’s process of restoration for the nation. So, for me, anybody but Hillary’s where I’m at because, just because her agenda is anchored in anti-biblical darkness, it is an ungodly ethos at the very heart of it, and Donald Trump is for free enterprise and he is for lift that will bring dignity to all people.
