STAND is a national organization dedicated to preserving life, the traditional family and our Judeo-Christian history and values as the Foundation of our Constitution and culture; preserving America as a Constitutional Republic with a federal government of limited and enumerated powers; preserving free enterprise as the best system for distribution of goods and services; maintaining American economic and military preeminence; and promoting the vision of “one nation under God, with liberty and justice for all.”
With only 14 days until the election, the message continues to spread! Virginia Thomas from The Daily Caller interviewed Bishop Jackson in Washington DC about the Exodus Now! project. Bishop Jackson answered a number of questions and as proof this message is making a difference, here is a direct quote from someone who gets it:
“As an ex-liberal atheist I hope Bishop Jackson knows that his message is getting through even to people like me. I’ll probably never believe in God, but I have come to understand that people who do believe in God are not the Evil people the Left has been so determine to wipe out. I see now that faith in God is a good thing and even if I’m not capable of it myself I see how America depends on it.”

As most of you visiting probably know, Bishop Jackson was on the Glen Beck radio show in the 11:00 hour today. After this web address was given out on the air, the increase in visitors to the website went into the tens of thousands by the minute. That was a blessing! Unfortunately, the temporary result was the crashing of our website. We have also been blessed by a great support team who fixed the problem quickly and there should be no more interruptions. Thank you for your patience and for visiting our website. Have a blessed day.
Laura Ingraham, Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh have all played the message to black Christians and talked about it on their shows now. As of today that single video alone has had 540,000 views. Yesterday, Bishop Jackson did an interview on CBN. Here is that interview.
For the first time since the black community’s political realignment with the Democrat Party in the 1960′s, a nationally prominent black Pastor has called on the black church community to leave the Democrat Party in a movement dubbed “EXODUS NOW!” Bishop E.W. Jackson’s call to “come out from among them” is apparently being heeded by many black Pastors and Christians across America and creating a stir in many churches. There is concern at the highest levels of the Democrat Party.
The impetus for EXODUS NOW, and what has given it credibility in the black community is the Democrat Party’s increasingly secular stand, particularly making “same-sex marriage” an official part of the Party Platform. This came on the heels of a number of other actions which many Christians found objectionable: President Obama’s support for same-sex marriage; regulations ordering Catholic and other Christian institutions providing healthcare to distribute free contraceptives and abortion drugs; Convention speakers support for unrestricted abortion up to the moment before delivery; and taking God out of the party platform and no longer recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Across the country, as black Christians debate the call to EXODUS NOW, Democrats are shaken. They desperately need the votes of black church goers. Democrats are responding by attacking Jackson personally on left wing blogs.
“They can say anything they want about me,” says Jackson, “but I do not intend to leave Christians in bondage to a party that is hostile to everything Christians hold dear. Either we worship and rely on God or we worship and rely on a political party. We are supposed to rely on Almighty God, not the government or any party. When a party disdains God and His word, as the Democrat Party clearly does, it is time to leave that party.”
Says the Bishop, “This movement is not about Party, but principle; not about race, but righteousness. This is not about winning an election, but saving a generation.”
The EXODUS NOW! press conference was a huge success. Turnout was fantastic. Before it was over the National Press Club security officer asked for our materials to share with others. We had a convert before the event was even finished! The will be much more to come on this story. For now, here is the video:
Norfolk, VA. Bishop E.W. Jackson, Chairman of “Ministers Taking a STAND” will host a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington DC at 1:00 PM to call for a mass Exodus of Christians from the Democrat party.
He will be joined by prominent leaders from around the country including from the Virginia area, LT. General William “Jerry” Boykin (Ret.) who will speak in support of this effort. General Boykin has played a role in almost every major American military operation since the 1970s. While rescuing hostages in the 1983 operation in Granada his arm bone was shattered by a .50 caliber machine gun. Later Col. Boykin was Commander of the Delta Force Team that fought the infamous Battle of Mogadishu, and was wounded in a Mortar attack in the aftermath of the battle. He also served as Deputy Director of Special Activities at the Central Intelligence Agency and the Deputy Under-secretary of Defense for Intelligence during the Bush administration.
Also Confirmed to speak is Sonnie Johnson, former President of the Virginia chapter of the Frederick Douglass Foundation. She is also a writer and contributor to BigGovernment.com, founded by the late Andrew Brietbart and hosts her own blog – didshesaythat.com. Ms. Johnson is a clarion voice for patriotism, the Constitution and Judeo-Christian values and is credited with having provided ground breaking leadership in the black community and beyond. She is particularly concerned to speak to black Christians about their relationship to the Democrat Party.
There will be numerous speakers across racial and denominational lines, including Rabbis Nachum Shifren of, Santa Monica, California, and Carlos Parker of Richmond, Virginia, representing the Hispanic and Jewish communities. There will be Catholic and Protestant representatives as well.
Bishop E.W. Jackson is available for interviews about this event. Call JoAnn Barnes at 813-760-7716 or email her at Joann@stampac.us to schedule.
Recently the Wisconsin group, Freedom From Religion Foundation, sent a letter to the Roanoke County Board of Supervisors threatening a lawsuit over the practice of allowing prayer before meetings. FFRF has sent similar letters to municipalities all over the country in a effort to scare them into removing prayer, God, the ten commandments and religion in general. Giles County, also in SW Virginia, has been dealing with a FFRF lawsuit over the posting of the ten commandments in their High School.
Today, the Roanoke County Board of Supervisors planned to vote on a new rule designed to please the FFRF and prevent the threat of a lawsuit from becoming a reality. The rule would have prevented ministers delivering the pre-meeting invocation from mentioning the Bible, Jesus or anything else that might be specific to a particular religion.
We at STAND know this to be a violation of the first amendment and were on hand to speak in opposition to it. I am excited to be able to announce we won the day! After realizing we all knew their proposed rule was a violation of the first amendment, they did not vote to approve it. Here is the statement from Bishop Jackson I delivered on behalf of STAND:
Norfolk, Virginia: Bishop E.W. Jackson, President of STAND (Staying True to America’s National Destiny) is accusing Vice-President Biden of racial demagoguery and the Democrat Party elites of using racial division as a cynical strategy for manipulating black voters. “Biden’s comment, ‘They’re gonna put y’all back in chains,’” says Jackson, “is not a gaffe. This is part of an intentional strategy to frighten Americans of African descent. The first hint of this was a Democrat sponsored training class by Maya Wiley, Founder and President of The Center For Social Inclusion, given in May to House members. The class was to teach them how to decipher the ‘racial code language’ conservatives allegedly use to hide their true racism.”
I am pleased to announce that our media efforts are paying off in a big way! Bishop Jackson has done a dozen interviews in the last week concerning STAND’s fight for our country.
Most recently, World Net Daily wrote a great article about the backlash against Obama’s anti-Christian policies and beliefs. Read it here. This one article alone has increased fundraising and connected us with a new member all the way from California!

The crisis we face grows more critical each day. The economic and fiscal problems were already at cataclysmic proportions. However, we now have a new dimension added to this frightening situation. There is a concerted effort to do away with all symbols of our Judeo-Christian culture, to deny our right of conscience in matters of faith and to attack Christians, Catholic and Protestant, who dare to speak openly of their faith.
The response to Dan Cathy of Chick-Fil-A exposed the left for the hateful people they are. Even sixteen year old Gabrielle (“Gabby”) Douglas, Olympic Gold winning gymnast, was attacked for daring to give glory to God for her win.
