Courtesy of Right Wing Watch, which points out that despite Jackson’s attempt to claim he only detests the “rabid radical homosexual activist movement,” and not all LGBT people, his past homophobic hate speech includes comments like:
*”Homosexuality ‘poisons culture,’ ‘poisons our children,’ ‘destroys societies’ and will bring divine punishment.”
*”The ‘homosexual community’ is composed of ‘perverse,’ ‘degenerate’ and ‘very sick people.'”
*”Gays and lesbians abuse children in order to make them gay and that an increasing number of black men are ‘recruited’ into homosexuality.”
By the way, last I checked, the LGBT rights movement in this country was simply about achieving EQUALITY before the law for LGBT people with all other Americans. If that’s not a fundamental American value, I have no idea what is. And if EW Jackson can’t understand that, he should run for office in Russia or somewhere like that, not in the United States of America.
