Bp. Jackson (Harvard Law Grad): Obama's Contempt for Religious Freedom

Bishop E.W. Jackson, Sr. at AIM Conference: Obama’s Contempt for Religious Freedom

In remarks to the AIM conference, “ObamaNation: A Day of Truth,” on September 21st, Bishop Earl Walker Jackson Sr. said that Barack Obama has launched an ”assault on religious liberty” and that we are being led by people “who don’t respect the constitution.”

Bishop Jackson was a Republican Party primary candidate for the United States Senate in Virginia in the 2012 election. He is the founder and current president of S.T.A.N.D. (Staying True To America’s National Destiny), a conservative non-profit organization dedicated to restoring America’s Judeo-Christian ethics. He is head pastor at Exodus Faith Ministries, located in Chesapeake,VA.

In an impassioned address, Bishop Jackson argued that the mainstream media, in lockstep with Barack Obama, is determined to undermine the tradition that our rights as Americans come from God, and not from the government. Referring to the fact that Obamacare forces Catholic religious institutions to violate their own religious beliefs by providing insurance coverage for contraception,Jacksonsaid that Barack Obama will “give you one year to change your conscience.”
