Virginia’s GOP Lt. Gov. Candidate: Non-Christians ‘Engaged in Some Sort of False Religion’

The Republican Party’s candidate for lieutenant governor of Virginia, E.W. Jackson, is also a Chesapeake-area pastor. During his Sunday morning sermon this week, Jackson told his congregants that he believes people who do not follow Christian tenets are “engaged in some sort of false religion.”

“Any time you say, ‘There is no other means of salvation but through Jesus Christ, and if you don’t know him and you don’t follow him and you don’t go through him, you are engaged in some sort of false religion,’ that’s controversial,” Jackson conceded. “But it’s the truth.”

Oh, the hypocrisy!

First of all, Jackson’s comments were made during a SERMON. I thought religion was off-limits? Remember when it was really cool that Obama was a Christian? I wonder how many Christian pastors would agree with Jackson? Exclusivity is standard Christian dogma.

But the Vile Progs are in a panty-twisting tizzy. Because,as you can see, Jackson is black. (A black Republican.) He is therefore held to a different standard than authentic black candidates. (And black Democrats are the only authentic black people.)

I am not a Jackson supporter. I never even heard of the man until last night. His bio says he’s a lawyer so I’m sure he is aware of the concept of separation between church and state. I’m not really sure how much his religious beliefs have anything to do with the duties of the lieutenant governor of Virginia anyway.

BTW – A Democratic “tracker” sat in church and recorded Jackson’s sermon and then gave a copy of the recording to the Washington Post. That’s how politics is done in the 21st Century.

      Aren’t we lucky to be the “bellweather” again for the midterm elections ?
      It’s why Va’s gov campaign is going national and the media is doing everything it can to destroy Obama’s oppo.

    Who’s pulling all the stings?

  3. DandyTIger says:

    Funny thing is I think Terry Mcauliffe and his Lt. Gov. (though the two positions are not really linked) are winning handily now. So what’s the point of this level of monitoring and shrill dirty fighting? It’s just the way the Dems roll these days I guess.

  4. DeniseVB says:

    E.W. is a hoot. Here’s the speech that got him nominated ….

    BTW – That picture came from WaPo.

    I disagree with Jackson on this:

    It is not the first time Jackson has weighed in with controversial comments on questions of faith and social issues. He has also said that gay people’s “minds are perverted. They are frankly very sick people psychologically and mentally and emotionally.”

    but I’m guessing that lots of black ministers would agree with him.

      And would Mr. Stranahan have preferred we topple al Assad and give Syria and all the nerve gas to the al Qaeda rebels? (Which Obama still wants to do, by the way . . . )

      Somebody on Twitter recently observed that most atheists secretly do believe in God, they’re just really angry at Him.

      • Constance says:

        Or some atheists believe in God but will do anything to avoid religious people and churches. I’ve always felt like churches are trying to be gatekeepers to God or trying to monetize God.

        • helenk3 says:

          do you mean agnostic? believe in GOD just not man made churches.
          Basically that is me. Believe firmly in God, think man does more harm in God”s name then he does good

        • elliesmom says:

          Some of really don’t believe in sky fairies. And we’re OK with it if you do. Mutual respect is all that is asked.

        • Constance says:

          I think I mean you can’t really tell what people believe by how they self label. Many people who label themselves religious just want to belong and some who try to disassociate with organized religion with the most shocking label available just don’t like the organized political structure of religion but feel God. And of course there are real atheists and real people who believe religion as it’s laid out by churches and people who don’t really think about it at all. But I have seen several who were dedicated atheists feel God at the end of their life.

    That’s also how “media research” is done in the 21st century.

    off topic

    here is another old man that it is time for him to go home and spend time with his family.

    lead – follow – or get out of the way

    • DandyTIger says:

      Mitch represents the establishment GOP. He’s doing what he’s paid to do. Their job is to destroy the tea party candidates. And their job is to keep Obamacare. After all, they were a big part of creating it.

      • helenk3 says:

        I just e-mailed him. told him that he and john mccain have been too long at the fair and it has clouded his vision. it is time for him to step down and spend time with his family. he can be replaced by someone who listens to the American people. his backstabbing of Ted Cruz and Mike Lee is unacceptable.

        black helios should arrive soon

      • r u reddy says:

        As I remember, Obamacare was basically based on Romneycare, which was based on a bunch of Heritage Foundation advice. So . . . yes, the Wall Street Democrats and Republicans will be united in defending Oromneybamacare. By the way, the Wall Street Justices on the Supreme Court who upheld the Constitutionality of Obamacare were just defending their Social Class Comrades as well. And I predicted the Roberts Court would uphold Obamacare back when most people were saying the Roberts Court would strike it down. I got that prediction right. Was I good? Or just lucky?

        • Karma says:

          Not to steal your thunder…lol

          But most Supreme Court watchers would be hard pressed to cite the last/any ruling to go against big business.

        • r u reddy says:

          Well . . . that’s true. But I will still swell with pride over predicting that the Roberts Court would uphold Obamacare for reasons of social class allegiance when everyone around me was predicting that the Roberts Court would strike down Obamacare for reasons of Republican Party allegiance, or Conservatism, or Obama-hating, or whatever.

        • angienc says:

          You were LUCKY because no one predicted — including you — that it would be upheld as a tax. In fact, I — and others who stated it was unconstitutional based on the commerce clause were absolutely 100% right as Roberts specically rejected upholding it based on the commerce clause. And that wasn’t because “anti-Obama” or being aligned with GOP — that was based on understanding jurisprudence and the Constitution. So stop sucking your own dick that you were lucky in predicting that corrupt DC is corrupt.

    I think any Christian running for office is smart to be careful what they say these days. He probably should have picked a diferent sermon topic (there’s lots to choose from.) That’s just a strategic reality.

    But is grates me that the double standard is such that it’s only conservatives who get called out for religious beliefs. Has anyone confronted, say, Rep. Keith Ellison on whether he thinks ppl who reject Allah go to heaven? I doubt it.

    Also, it always strikes me as weird when ppl get all upset that the doctrine of a faith not their own says they are not going to heaven. Why the hell should you care? We’ve already established you don’t share their beliefs, so how does this affect you? If this is NOT your religion or your belief, then so freaking what? What is this obsession with the idea that everyone must always AFFIRM you or the world will end?

    • elliesmom says:

      Try not believing in any deity and see how hard people try to convince you you’re not going to heaven if you don’t accept whatever deity is their chosen one. I am well aware I’m not going to heaven when I die. It’s OK. I can handle it.

  15. wmcb says:

    Am on Twitter trying in my TL to school some GOP rank-and-file on how politics is done. Seeing some of the comments is making it very clear how they keep losing. Very reasonable and sincere, with no clue on rabble-rousing.

    Talking about the ppl, not the pols. The pols may or may not have ulterior motives, but the rank and file are sincere. And things I thought were common knowledge really aren’t, on the R side. They SUCK at propaganda (I mean that in the morally neutral sense). Suck. They don’t get Overton windows at all. At all.

    Cruz, whether you think his plan will work or not, gets it. I was a D activist for so long, I recognize what he’s doing. None of that may make sense to you guys, but if you are curious, read my timeline.

    If Obamacare will turn out as badly as its critics predict, it might be best in the long run to go through. If the critics are all wrong, we will end up liking it after all. If the critics are right, a rising hate-rage backlash will put Republicans in control of the House, Senate, and the Presidency. It would give the Rs a chance to show they meant it ( or not) when they said “Repeal Obamacare!”
    I would predict that under such a “clean sweep” scenario the Republicans would find a way to keep Obamacare on the books, esPECially the Forced Mandate. Most of the Republicans work for the same social class that the Supreme Court works for. And that social class wants Obamacare with all its revenue streams to them.
