Bishop E.W. Jackson Sr., Founder and President of STAND - Staying True to America's National Destiny is accusing homosexual activists of anti-Christian bigotry and hatred. Recently, homosexuals have attacked Chick-Fil-A for supporting pro-family groups and events. They are calling for boycotts, banning the business from college campuses and labeling the owner and business as anti-gay. Some have ridiculed the business, calling it "Jesus Chicken."
Says Bishop Jackson, "This is further proof of the insidious and dangerous hatred by homosexual activists of any Christian who dares try to live out their biblical values. The problem in society today is not hatred of homosexuals, but hatred by homosexuals of anyone who refuses to say 'amen' to their sexual behavior."
Jackson alleges that the homosexual community has been trying for years to undermine or destroy the church and believers who dare stand up for their faith. "They want to destroy the very faith which established this nation, its very foundation, because it is an affront to them and they want a sexually amoral society remade in their image."
The Bishop further claims that support for the traditional family is not an attack on homosexuality. "When we do programs to support the family, we are not thinking about homosexuality, but for homosexuals, any endorsement of the family as God ordained it is an attack on them. It demonstrates their paranoid obsession with getting the society to endorse their lifestyle and silencing those who won't."
Bishop Jackson is calling on Christians and fair minded Americans to "Buycott Chick-Fil-A." "Go out of your way to patronize this fine business. They have a right to support whomever they wish without being persecuted for their Christian faith and values." Jackson suggests, "The bigotry is so virulent that it may be time to make Christians a protected class. Right now 'Christo-phobia' and 'Biblo-phobia' are at such a fever pitch among leftists and homosexual activists, and they need to be stopped before they get carried away in their zeal and do bodily harm to someone. Once again we must remind them our Constitution says, 'freedom of religion' and not 'freedom from religion.'"
