"Rev" Jesse Jackson Promotes Gay Marriage

The Rev. Jackson Jackson is urging Maryland voters to vote in favor of a ballot measure this fall that would legalize marriage of gays and lesbians in the state. Governor Martin O'Malley signed a marriage equality bill, passed by the legislature, but the voters will decide in November. 
“The culture has had to expand,” Jackson said at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte last week in an interview for my SiriusXM OutQ radio program, discussing marriage for gays and lesbians. “For so long we thought it was a sin for blacks to have freedom. We thought it was a sin for black and white men and women to interrelate. We’ve grown in our appreciation of the fact that we live in our faith, and our faith may live under the law. All citizens deserve constitutional protections. You know, you have have a right not to agree with interracial marriage but no one should be denied rights under the law.”
Regarding the vote in Maryland, where a large African-American community could have an major influence, Jackson reached out to voters.
Jackson did not address the numerous Biblical condemnations of homosexuality. After being discovered that he had had a mistress and "love child" for years, Jackson has become increasingly secular and less church oriented. 
Jackson also said, in a separate interview with Human Events at the DNC last week, that he would perform a same-sex wedding ceremony if a gay or lesbian couple asked him to do so. See Chick's SIN CITY.
