Pastor Challenges Fellow Blacks to End “Slavish Devotion” to Democratic Party

A pastor in Virginia is taking on the Democratic Party's long-time stranglehold on the black voting bloc, telling fellow black Americans that it is high time for them to end their “slavish devotion to the Democrat Party.” In a nearly four-minute video produced by the group Americans Taking a Stand, Bishop E.W. Jackson, pastor of Exodus Faith Ministries in Chesapeake, Virginia, nails the Democrats for their support of abortion and homosexual marriage, and for eschewing Christian values, in the process challenging black Christians to make a mass exodus from the party.

A pastor in Virginia is taking on the Democratic Party's long-time strangle-hold on the black voting bloc, telling fellow black Americans that it is high time for them to end their “slavish devotion to the Democrat Party.” In a nearly four-minute video (see link at bottom) produced by the group Americans Taking a Stand, Bishop E.W. Jackson, pastor of Exodus Faith Ministries in Chesapeake, Virginia, nails the Democrats for their support of abortion and homosexual marriage, and for eschewing Christian values, in the process challenging black Christians to make a mass exodus from the party.

“They have insulted us, used us, and manipulated us,” Jackson admonishes black voters of the tactics used by Democratic operatives over the past several decades. “They have saturated the black community with ridiculous lies” and think that they can “hold us captive while they violate everything we believe as Christians.”

Jackson charges the Democratic Party with creating an “unholy alliance between certain so-called civil rights leaders and Planned Parenthood, which has killed unborn black babies by the tens of millions.” He adds that Planned Parenthood “has been far more lethal to black lives that the KKK ever was, and the Democrat Party and their black civil rights allies are partners in this genocide.”

As for same-sex marriage, the Bishop says that the “Democrat Party has equated homosexuality with being black,” which he terms “another outrageous lie,” noting that while homosexuals can keep their lifestyle private, “you and I cannot hide being black.”

He goes on to point out that Democrats “say opposition to same-sex marriage is the same as opposition to interracial marriage. That is an insult to human intelligence. It is a lie. No Christian should support this. Yet the Democrat Party has declared same-sex marriage an official part of its platform. And black Christians remain in that party?”
