Several things in this article touch a nerve with me. Bishop E. W Jackson says the Democrat Party has a “cult-like devotion” to abortion and tells of a Progressive “journalist” attacking Gabrielle (Gabby) Douglas, the 2012 Olymics Gold Medalist in Gymnanastics from the U.S., for giving the “glory to God” for her success.
Case in point: Mary Elizabeth Williams, journalist for the progressive online magazine Salon.com, wrote, “I’ve often wondered what it is about Christians like Douglas that unnerves me so … Douglas and her ilk seem to espouse a faith based on what is commonly referred to as ‘The God of Parking Spaces.’”
Williams doesn’t believe we need God, but we do need Oprah and have been blessed to have her for 25 years. In fact, according to Williams, Oprah’s success is downright “miraculous.”
Jackson, founder and president of STAND (Staying True to America’s National Destiny), responds: “Progressives are indeed ‘unnerved’ by devout Christians. That’s why they resort to ridicule, even of a 16-year-old Olympic medal winner. Williams says we worship ‘The God of Parking Spaces,’ but I would prefer Gabby’s God of grace and kindness to the leftist’s god of ridicule and persecution. Source
