The Bishop E.W. Jackson, founder of Chesapeake, Virginia-based Exodus Faith Ministries, recently released a controversial video calling for African Americans to make a mass exodus from the Democratic Party. Throughout the clip, Jackson delivers stinging blows to both liberals and the African Americans who continue to support them, while decrying what he sees as a "slavish devotion to the Democrat Party."
"They have insulted us, used us, and manipulated us. They have saturated the black community with ridiculous lies," he said, speaking directly to the black community. "They think we are stupid and that these lies will hold us captive while they violate everything we believe as Christians."
Jackson went into detail in the video, taking aim at the "unholy alliance" that he sees between Democrats, faux-civil rights leaders and Planned Parenthood.
"The Democratic Party has created an unholy alliance between certain so-called civil rights leaders and Planned Parenthood, which has killed unborn black babies by the tens of millions," he proclaimed.
On the morality front, Jackson took issue with the party's internal debate over "God" being dropped from its platform and derided the notion that homosexuality should be equated "with being black." He called the later tenet of the Democratic Party an "outrageous lie."
"We as Christians ought to know better. Shame on us for allowing ourselves to be sold to the highest bidder," Jackson continued, telling his fellow black pastors that they, too, would need to make a decision between supporting Democrats and embracing Jesus.
"The time has come to take a stand," he concluded. "Come out from among them. Exodus now."

Jackson's comments are part of a wider movement that he is launching to mobilize African Americans across the nation to take a stand against the Democratic Party. During a September 10 press conference, the faith leader joined others in discussing their campaign efforts. Prior to the event, Jackson wrote the following in an e-mail to supporters:
After the event, we want to send an Open Letter to the church community all across the country urging them to realize that the Democrat Party is about to become the party of Christian persecution in America. Already they call us bigots and haters for not bowing to political correctness regarding same-sex marriage. They call us "Islamophobes" because we are concerned about Islamic radicalism and Sharia law. They say we hate women because we fight for the lives of unborn children. They are supporting the rise of the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt under the guise of the "Arab Spring." Ask Israel about the Arab spring. Egypt has now become an enemy on their border. The long peace is over. Billions of tax payer dollars are being sent to the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt, while they torture Christians and burn down churches. These are the policies of the Democrat Party, polices of Christian persecution.
