  1. A surprising ally but an ally all the same!

    To be honest don’t know a lot about the guy, but I would have thought he’s have damned us to hell.

    He possibly isn’t the sanctimonious bigot I always took him for.

    Sorry, Mr Jackson

    1. I often get Jessie Jackson muddled up with Al Sharpton, though Al Sharpton is more of an equality ally then Jackson.

  3. Go for it Jessie. Thank you very much for your support. I hope and pray that other Baptist Ministers follow suit. Trail blazer :-)

    we need more like Jesse Jackson … especially within the black community .. historically black churches (even tho they are full of GBLT persons) have lead the way in condemning our community .. especially in the south of small towns where the black church is the center of activity …..so maybe Jesse Jackson’s views will help turn that around

  5. Thank you Jessie for your excellent support!!!

  6. Wow. That is really strong support from a very surprising source. I’m so glad he made the comparison with the Black struggle. Many are incensed when these are linked. Next to Obama Jackson is probably the most influential African-American. Thank you, Jesse. Better late than never.

    1. It takes a big person to change their mind. Big Jesse.
