Bishop Harry Jackson: The Black Church 'Raised Up the Banner of Jesus' to Kill Gay Marriage in Maryland
Anti-gay crusader Bishop Harry Jackson spoke with the Christian Broadcast Network following the shelving of the marriage equality bill in Maryland and claimed the win for the Black Church:
"We exerted spiritual impact in that natural secular arena. It took the Church coming out, the Black Church, and telling its representatives, don't listen to party leadership. Understand that you're going to have to come back to your own community. They see you sort of as lemmings who are willing to march off to your death. When really and truly there will be a price to pay. That message came across. The Church was strong. And the Black church did raise up the banner of Jesus and win the day for the Church in Maryland."
