Bishop EW Jackson Defends Gabby Douglas: Time for Christians to Turn Backs on Democrat Party

Several things in this article touch a nerve with me. Bishop E. W Jackson says the Democrat Party has a “cult-like devotion” to abortion and tells of a Progressive “journalist” attacking Gabrielle (Gabby) Douglas, the 2012 Olymics Gold Medalist in Gymnanastics from the U.S., for giving the “glory to God” for her success.

Case in point: 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.’”

Williams doesn’t believe we need God, but we do need Oprah and have been blessed to have her for 25 years. In fact, according to Williams, Oprah’s success is downright “miraculous.”

Jackson, founder and president of STAND (Staying True to America’s National Destiny), responds: “Progressives 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. Source

Jackson is the head pastor of the non-denominational Exodus Faith Ministry in Chesapeake, Virginia. He is a former Marine, attended the University of Massachusetts and graduated Summa Cum Laude in three years. He was awarded the Phi beta Kappa Key. He practiced law for 15 years in Boston and started the city’s first and only all-gospel radio station.

He has taught Administrative Law at Northeastern University and business and commercial law at Strayer University in Virginia Beach and Chesapeake, Virginia. Source: Exodus Faith Ministry

My friend Grumpy at Grumpy Opinions also posted on Jackson’s call for Democrats to leave the party. Being the bold Grump that he is, he sent his article to “friends, neighbors and family members who consider themselves Christians and Democrats along with his own note. He thinks he won’t receive back even one response. Here is one of his observations:

I have noticed that so-called Christians will listen to news of these attacks so long as you leave Obama out of the discussion.  The mere fact that I mentioned “the White House” will cause these so-called Christians from shying away because they do not have the cohunes to call evil out, no matter where it comes from.

Grumpy’s Christian neighbors, friends and family need to learn about the difference between Liberal Christianity, as driven by the National Council of Churches (NCC) which most traditional denominations are a part of, and Biblical Christianity. For instance, a former NCC president is leaving the NCC to join Interfaith Worker Justice, and he is urging Congress to pass a “Faithful Budget” to combat poverty. It’s all about Social Justice and little but cherry picking the Bible. The NCC has been “concerned about gun violence for decades.” If you are a member of any of the churches listed here, a part of the money you put in the church coffer, goes to NCC to further their agenda, which includes lobbying against your Second Amendment rights.

So much to say about the NCC, but for now, we need more E.W Jackson’s standing in our pulpits.

    Gabrielle is the kind of kid any parent should be proud of. Exploiting her success for political purposes is absolutely disgusting.

    Excellent. Thank you for putting this out there…God bless Bishop Jackson and dear Gabby. The progs are “users”–seldom expressing genuine appreciation or gratitude for anything or anyone. Gabby just got caught in their usual operation that everything must always be about them.

    I’m so lucky and blessed to live in Va Beach (Gabby’s from here and Bishop Jackson lives in neighboring Chesapeake) So many awesome people that I’m surrounded by and gladly brag about!! When Gabby finally makes her way home, she already has a mural of her painted on the side of a building by local artists that did one for SEAL Team 6 (also stationed here) after the chinook crash!!

    @Becca. Where is the Mural as i would like to go and see it while I am there next week. I am also from Tidewater and have lived in Norfolk, Chesapeake and Va. beach over the years. She was an inspiration to all I have spoken with and hope she will stay true to her beliefs. I was also impressed with Lolo Jones (Track) for her Christian Values though she was scorned in the press because of them.
