Bishop E.W. Jackson, who was the Republican Party’s nominee for lieutenant governor in Virginia last year, spoke at last night’s “Celebrate America” event where he loudly proclaimed that “America was ordained by Almighty God” and therefore Christians must take a stand and declare that, no matter what the government says, God’s definition of marriage will never change.
“We’ve got to make up our minds that we wrestle not against flesh and blood,” Jackson bellowed, “but against principalities, against powers, against the rules of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. We’ve got to make up our minds that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but they are mighty through God, to the pulling down of strongholds, casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God and bringing every thought into obedience to Jesus Christ. We’ve got to stand up!”
“We’re not going to shut up,” he continued, “and we’re not going to stop. We’re not going to quit. I don’t care what anybody says, I don’t care whether it’s the president or the Supreme Court, a marriage is union between one man and one woman and that’s all it will ever be!”
