Right-wing Pastor E.W. Jackson said Saturday on his Wisdom Meditation radio show that Georgia voters who cast their ballots for Democratic Senate candidates John Ossoff and Reverend Raphael Warnock are acting against the teachings of Jesus Christ – a curious suggestion, considering that Warnock is a member of the clergy at Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Martin Luther King Jr. became a civil rights icon.
“These two clowns running for US Senate down there are both pro-abortion,” Jackson said of Warnock and Ossoff. “These two clowns down there are both big LGBTQ advocates. The Bible makes clear, ‘The fool has said in his heart there is no God,’ and these two are both imbued with Marxist ideology. Of course, I’m opposed to them. Of course, I don’t want them to go to the US Senate.”
Ossoff and Warnock are running to unseat Georgia’s incumbent Republican Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, respectively. If the two Democrats pickup both seats, their party will retake control of the Senate in January.
“They don’t need to be there,” Jackson continued. “So you all pray for me that we’ll be successful in alerting, awakening Black Christian voters in Georgia of just how evil the two candidates are that are running for the Democrat Party. And if you vote for them, you just might as well vote against God, because that’s what it boils down to. If you vote for Warnock or Ossoff and you claim to be a Christian, you really just might as well spit in Jesus’ face, because they both have done that.”
Unfortunately for Jackson, the United States is not a theocracy. Even if it were, which political party would Jesus support? The Republicans, who only care about rich people? Or the Democrats, who want everyone to have health care, food, and equal rights?
