Harry R. Jackson, Jr. Biography

Title:
Bishop of the Fellowship of International Churches
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Is Sexual Orientation Determined at Birth?"
Reasoning:

“We must understand that marriage must remain between one man and one woman. It’s not about hating anybody or against anybody, but we’re just believing that we understand this society has always been founded upon traditional marriage and so we want to stand for that today and voice our opinion by taking a stand for marriage… I’d rather be biblically courageous than politically correct.”

Speech given at an anti same-sex marriage rally in Washington, DC, Apr. 29, 2009
