Rev. E.W. Jackson: Gay-Rainbow Flag is Blasphemous, 'Shaking Your Fist in God's Face'

Rev. E.W. Jackson. 

Pastor E.W. Jackson, who is a Marine, the great-grandson of slaves, and a graduate of Harvard Law School, denounced the fact that some U.S. embassies around the world are defying the order of the president to not fly the gay-rainbow flag next to or below the U.S. flag, an act in itself that is blasphemous, he said, and the equivalent of "shaking your fist in God's face."

“Most people don’t know that these State Department folks are defying the president of the United States and flying the rainbow flag," said Rev. Jackson during his June 9 sermon.  

"That’s an accursed thing," he said, in reference to the homosexual flag.  "The rainbow was given to us by God as a sign that He would not destroy the Earth by water again, and you’re going to appropriate that as pride in homosexuality? Are you kidding me? Talk about blasphemy. Talk about arrogance. Talk about boldness. Talk about shaking your fist in God’s face.”

Earlier in his remarks, Rev. Jackson said, “The president of the United States, President Donald J. Trump gave an order and contradicted the order of President Obama. President Obama, eight years ago, gave an order to the State Department that during June, ‘Gay Pride Month,’ you may fly the rainbow flag in every embassy in the world."

"So, the rainbow flag under President Obama flew under the American flag at every embassy in the world, under President Obama," said Jackson.

He continued, “President Trump said, ‘No, we’re not going to do that. You’re only going to fly the American flag at embassies. We’re not going to fly the rainbow flag during June.’"

“Well, guess what?" said Jackson. "You’ve got people in the embassies saying, ‘We don’t care what the president says and flying them [flags] in some places anyway.’"

For June, which homosexuals celebrate as "Gay Pride Month," the State Department ordered that the gay-rainbow flags should not fly alongside or under the U.S. flag on flagpoles at U.S. embassies.

However, the State Department left open the option for homosexual employees to display the rainbow flag outside windows, on walls, in hallways, etcetera.
