''Stealing'' Civil Rights [video]

Maryland preacher Harry Jackson tells NOM crowd that same-sex marriage is about rich gay bullies; vows to stop marriage, get LGBT books out of libraries

Bishop Harry Jackson, the leader of the Maryland-based Hope Christian Church who has campaigned for a referendum on the D.C. marriage equality law, speaks at the final rally of the National Organization for Marriage’s “Summer for Marriage Tour” at the U.S. Capitol Building, Sunday, Aug. 15.

In addition to telling the small crowd of anti-marriage rally attendees “the fact that Same-sex marriage advocates have attempted to steal the right of the people to vote in the name of civil rights, is stealing others’ civil rights,” Jackson waved a copy of “Heather Has Two Mommies,” vowing that the book and other LGBT affirming books would be removed from libraries.
