Virginia pastor and Fox News contributor E.W. Jackson said this week on an anti-gay-marriage conference call for his National Emergency Coalition that President Obama and other officials are “absolutely leading us in a way that is antithetical to our commitment to Jesus Christ.”
Jackson, the Virginia GOP nominee for lieutenant governor in 2013, was especially upset that the president commended Caitlyn Jenner by saying “it takes courage to share your story.”
“So you’re congratulating him for his insanity? Because that’s what that is. That is insane,” Jackson said.
He continued: “That’s mental illness, that’s all that is, and this idea of commending people for their courage, I mean, give me a break.”
