ALEXANDRIA, Va.  (WUSA9) - Worse than the KKK.
That's how a Republican candidate currently running for state office in Virginia referred to Planned Parenthood on YouTube.

He also calls gay people perverted and sick and says he doesn't believe President Obama is a Christian. The candidate is a Minister, yet many say the Reverend E.W. Jackson is full of hate.

"The KKK did not do nearly as much to destroy black life as Planned Parenthood," said Jackson in a past video posted on YouTube. Jackson is the newly nominated GOP candidate for Lieutenant Governor.

The video was compiled with other radical comments made by Jackson, and strung together by the organization American Bridge.

Jackson is a minister from Chesapeake, and the Virginia Republican party's newly nominated candidate for Lieutenant Governor. But videos on YouTube, combined and posted by the organization American Bridge, are shedding new light on Reverend Jackson's beliefs.

"Homosexuality is a horrible sin, is poisons culture, it destroys families, it destroys societies," said Jackson. He also said that gay people are "perverted" and "very sick."

State Senator Adam Ebbin, the only openly gay member of Virginia's legislature, is appalled at the statements.

"It's frightening," said Ebbin, saying that he knows gay people who fled Virginia because of similar anti-gay rhetoric.

Ebbin is one of several Democrats blasting Virginia's GOP ticket, and especially Reverend Jackson, as too extreme.

Here's what Reverend Jackson said about the President on the Victoria Jackson Show:

"The idea that Barack Obama is a Christian is laughable...I really believe that."

"It's shocking and ridiculous for a reverend to question others religious beliefs and judge others," said Ebbin.

Jackson's campaign did not respond to WUSA9's requests for an interview, but according to the Washington Post, he told reporters that he had nothing to apologize for and says what he says because he's a Christian.
