Right-Wing Pastor Compares Gay People to Coronavirus

COVID-19 is literally sweeping the globe and not in a good way, with almost 90,000 confirmed cases around the world. While people should be focused on preventing the spread of this disease, right-wing pastor E.W. Jackson decided to compare LGBT people to COVID-19 in that he believes, like the disease, homosexuality is destroying families, according to Towleroad. He said that during his radio show, “The Awakening,” as a way to attack Virginia Democratic Congressman Bobby Scott, a man who represents Jackson’s district and supports LGBT rights. Jackson said “The last thing in the world the black community needs is more destruction of the family… and that’s all this whole homosexual movement amounts to.” He also said that it “is a virulent, violent attack” and that it’s the “homovirus for the family,” effectively comparing LGBT people to a global epidemic. Not only is that nonsensical, it’s also terribly insensitive.
