Bishop Harry Jackson has warned that
gay marriage is part of “a Satanic plot to destroy our seed.”
Jackson, a minister at the Hope
Christina Church in Belstville, Maryland, came to prominence fighting
against the District of Columbia's gay marriage law, now in its
second year. The Supreme Court recently announced without comment
that it would not hear Jackson's challenge to a D.C. Court of Appeals
ruling that upheld the city's right to prohibit a referendum on the
issue from going to voters. Jackson
and the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) have said they will
work with Congress to strike down the law.
also played a major role in lobbying against Maryland's effort to
legalize the institution.
In an interview with Bradlee Dean of
the anti-gay group You Can Run But You Cannot Hide Ministry, Jackson
suggested that gay marriage is evil.
“I'm an African-American and I
specially believe that what we're dealing with is a Satanic plot to
destroy our seed,” Jackson said. “I think where we are now is
that there is an issue of justice that's being perverted and we have
a minority group, in a sense, that has decided that they are going to
impose their will on the culture – by force – and redefine God's
law.” (The video, provided
