Bishop E.W. Jackson.
Commenting on the Women's March in Washington, D.C. that occurred on Jan. 21, Bishop E.W. Jackson said it was a "liberal, leftist march" that illustrated the spiritual divide in America, adding that there is a "spiritual civil war" raging and the people who marched last Saturday "are on the godless side in this war," allied with the "rulers of darkness."
“At this so-called Women’s March – now it was not a women’s march, it was a liberal, leftist women’s march," said Bishop Jackson on the Jan. 23 edition of his radio program The Awakening. Let’s be honest about it. It was not a women’s march. It was a leftist women’s march."
“Our country is really now divided not as the leftists would have you think," he said, "divided by gender identity versus those that don’t recognize it, the LGBT movement versus those that don’t want same-sex marriage, and the women who want freedom versus those who are engaged in a ‘war on women.’ That’s not what’s going on."
“Folks, America is in the middle of a pitched spiritual battle," said Bishop Jackson, who studies theology at Harvard Divinity School and earned a law degrees from Harvard Law School.
"We are in the middle of a pitched spiritual battle." he repeated. "We are in the middle of the equivalent of a spiritual civil war. That’s what’s happening in America right now. And the people represented by those who went to Washington, D.C. to protest are on the godless side in this war."

“We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places," said the bishop. "So, what we’ve got to do now is put on the whole armor of God to be able to stand against the wiles, the stratagems, the strategies, the tricks of the devil.”
Bishop Jackson and his wife run Exodus Faith Ministries in Chesapeake, Va. Jackson, 65, was a lifelong Democrat until the 1980s when he realized the Democratic Party's policies, such as pro-abortion, pro-sodomy, were in conflict with Biblical Christianity. Bishop Jackson ran an unsuccessful campaign for the U.S. Senate in 2011.
