    To be fair...he said their AGENDA is "worthy of the antichrist" NOT that Democrats themselves were the antichrist.

    That's kind of backpedaling..."I didn't call them Nazis, I just said Hitler could get behind that agenda."

    Backpeddling is changing one's position to a softer one after the fact.

    That's not the case here. The case here is me correcting you misrepresenting what the individual reportedly said.

    Now, you could say that what he said was a weak IMPLICATION that the Democrats are the Anti-Christ...but that's FAR different than claiming the man literally said something he did not say.

    If you're going to criticize him you should criticize him fo rwhat he ACTUALLY said, otherwise you're no better than those like Bob stating things are true when they're provably not.

    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”

    I should have spoken more carefully. I don't mean to say that all of his constituents are disgusting, but rather that his supporters-- whom I suspect are his supporters because of these statements, not despite them-- are disgusting for endorsing his statements. There might be a little ways I could go into saying that people holding their nose and voting for him are disgusting, too... but I have a good deal of sympathy for people in that situation; I mean, what else are they going to do, vote for liberals?

    No worries. I understood what you meant. What you said just made me think how annoyed I am that this is my "option" for a Republican candidate in this election.

    I don't think that is true in the slightest. The demand for an apology is a show of power. There is very little chance he might honestly reconsider his views, but he might pretend to to avoid the backlash of social persecution. The question is whether the social pressure is strong enough in Virginia to sufficiently punish him electorally for spewing hatred towards homosexuals.

    What a huge lie. It is astonishing how much some of the pro-life men on the forum do that in their messages.

    The founder of PP did not even support abortions. She supported legalizing contraceptives - which Bronson obviously opposes.

    Are you denying that Sanger was a eugenicist?

    Read her book Pivot of Civilization. In it she refers to blacks and other minorities as "human weeds, reckless breeders, spawning ... human beings who never should have been born."

    She even talks about when she spoke to the KKK in her autobiography

    Margaret Sanger's Account Of Her Lecture To The Ku Klux Klan / Educational Video Film - YouTube

    We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members - Margaret Sanger
    Planned Parenthood is a scam. They put them all in minority neighborhoods and have murdered more blacks than the KKK could have ever dreamed of doing. Planned Parenthood are butchers of black children.

    As for the OP, I think Jackson's beliefs and the way he expresses them are indeed reprehensible. I wouldn't vote for him or anyone like him if his was the only name on the ballot.
