Bishop Jackson is Back to Fighting Marriage in D.C.

Timothy Kincaid

September 1st, 2009

In July Bishop Harry Jackson of Maryland lost his battle to stop the District of Columbia from recognizing same-sex marriages conducted in states where they are legal. The D.C. Board of Elections & Ethics ruled that such a referndom was in violation of the city’s election code because it was not consistent with the District’s Human Rights Act.

Now he’s back with a request for a ballot initiative. (Washington Post)

The one-sentence initiative reads, “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid and recognized in the District of Columbia.”

The legislature of the District has already indicated that it will propose and pass legislation legalizing same-sex marriage in the nation’s capital. Jackson hopes this will stall the process.

Jackson is a crook and guilty of voter fraud by having registered under a false address in the District. He is a sham and a fool and deserves whatever ridicule he receives for interfering with the lives of people that must endure no representation in congress along with his meddling.

Bishop Jackson is a crazy man with a crazy mission. He is looking for attention.
