A Republican who ran to become Virginia’s Lieutenant Governor has recently spoken in protection of a homophobic church pastor and gospel singer Kim Burrell who lost her radio show, was rejected to receive a prestigious gospel award and dropped from the show of Ellen DeGeneres where she was set to perform with Pharrell Williams. Burrell’s colleague made a conclusion that the ‘sanctions’ against her showed liberals hating black churches.
On his radio show The Awakening, E. W. Jackson fumed about the response to her comments. He claimed: “She’s being persecuted for what she said in church… if you are a Christian and you happen to be black, these Democrats and liberals hate your guts, if you are a Bible-believing Christian. If you’re a wishy-washy, don’t half-believe anything and aren’t willing to stand up for anything, you’ll be okay with them… but if you’re a Bible-believing Christian who is on fire for God and you believe that His word is true… they hate your guts. Don’t you let anybody kid you.” As for Ellen DeGeneres, who dropped Burrell from her show, Jackson says: “Why would any Christian want to sit up and watch any woman who I guess thinks she’s a man? The whole thing is confusion.I guess Ellen DeGeneres would say she’s a woman but she likes other women… but she’s not a man! To me, folks, it’s just confusion.Look, here’s the reality, if a woman is a lesbian and likes women, say masculine-type women, why wouldn’t you just like a man? To me, the whole thing is just confusion, and the Bible says it’s confusion.” The Bible, in fact, mentions gay men and gay sex (between 2 males) as a sin, but as for women loving other women,. there is no such issue in the Bible at all.
