CHESAPEAKE, Va., Aug. 8, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- "Let God's people go!" says Bishop E.W. Jackson echoing the cry of Moses in the book of Exodus. The Bishop has begun a campaign to persuade Christians, Catholic and Protestant, of all races that the time has come for a wholesale Exodus of Christians from the Democrat Party.
He points to the Democrat Party's "cult-like devotion" to abortion; the rejection of the traditional biblical model of the family; the hostility hurled at those who express a Christian viewpoint such as Dan Cathy of Chick-Fil-A; the actions of Democrat organizations such as the ACLU and the Foundation For Freedom From Religion in suing cities and towns for displaying crosses at memorials or mentioning the name Jesus in prayer at official events.
According to Bishop Jackson, Democrat operatives are attacking Gabrielle Douglas, the 16 year old black American who won the 2012 Gold Medal in gymnastics. "The accomplished young lady had the nerve to give glory to God for her win," Jackson says. "This apparently offended liberals." Mary Elizabeth Williams, journalist for the progressive online magazine salon.com wrote, "I've often wondered what it is about Christians like Douglas that unnerves me so... Douglas and her ilk seem to espouse a faith based on what is commonly referred to as 'The God of Parking Spaces'."
"Progressives," E.W. Jackson says, "are indeed 'unnerved' by devout Christians. That's why they resort to ridicule, even of a 16 year old Olympic medal winner. Williams says we worship 'The God of Parking Spaces', but I would prefer Gabby's God of grace and kindness to the leftist's god of ridicule and persecution. Our Heavenly Father loves us and helps those who are humble enough to ask Him."
Later this month when Democrats make same-sex marriage part of their official Party Platform, he says, "they will be spitting in the face of every Bible believing Christian in America. They will be saying, 'we don't care what you think, what you believe, or what the Bible or the God of the Bible says. We know better than God'." Jackson's message to Christians is, "The Democrat Party has turned its back on Christians. It is time to turn our backs on the Democrat Party."
E.W Jackson is a Bishop, Marine Corps Veteran, graduate of Harvard Law School, former practicing Attorney and Adjunct Professor of Law, former candidate for U.S. Senate i
