“If same-sex marriage is allowed to be mandated by fiat,” Jackson claims, “then right behind it, polygamy and many other forms of marriage will automatically sweep the land within just a matter of a few years.”
Of course, that’s flat out false, but not the first time Bishop Harry Jackson — who gets paid by NOM, the National Organization For Marriage — has twisted truth to denigrate same-sex marriage and its “effects.”
Of course, Bishop jackson also lied when he spoke at NOM’s anti-gay hate rally on Tuesday in Washington, D.C., as Aviva Shen at Think Progress reported:
Jackson claimed that “urban America” could be “healed” by promoting heterosexual marriages because, he alleges, heterosexual marriages have less poverty, less domestic violence, and “sexual abuse does not happen.”
Shen offers this transcript and video:
“God has given us a blueprint for how to have success in the earthly realm. He’s given us an architectural plan of how to heal the barren places in urban America. He says that marriage between a man and a woman will heal the desert places in urban America. Ghettos will be revitalized if one man, one woman families are the order of the day. When a man and a woman are in the house, poverty is lessened. When a man and a woman are in the house, kids don’t go to prison. When a man and a woman are in the house, there’s less domestic violence. When a man and a woman are in the house, sexual abuse does not happen.”
