    this may be proof pot screws up the mind.

    More Midterm madness in Colorado, where one of the GOP candidates voted into office was Gordon Klingenschmitt, a former Navy chaplain who believes gay people are “unhuman” and once performed a televised exorcism of President Barack Obama.

    What’s even more insane, is that this anti-gay exorcist won by a landslide, picking up almost 70% of the vote in the state’s 15th House district. Come January, this guy is going to be passing laws in the Colorado House of Representatives; this foaming-at-the-mouth, anal-sex-obsessed, anti-gay lunatic.

    He leads the Pray in Jesus Name Project, designated as an anti-LGBT hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Every day, he hosts his fire and brimstone “Pray in Jesus Name” program, which he uses as a platform from which to spew bilious condemnation at non-heterosexuals.
    Right Wing Watch have provided a comprehensive record of Klingenschmitt’s most extreme statements, which include:
    On gays: “They’re cooperating with the Devil and there is something unhuman inside of them.”
    On “curing” a transgender teen: “The parents are encouraging that and really what the parents ought to do is take that boy to an exorcist, take that boy to a minister or at least discipline the boy, maybe give him a spanking.”
    On teaching kids about gay marriage: Liberals think “every child has a right to be raped, at least in their mind, by somebody who is going to pervert them and recruit them into sexual immorality.”
    On exorcising Obama: “Father in Heaven, we pray against the domestic enemies of the Constitution, against the demon of tyranny who is using the White House occupant and that demonic spirit is oppressing us.”

    This is the end result of the GOP appealing to religious conservatives for votes. These voters are dedicated, but ultimately they are going to want like minded politicians.

    If i ever move to Colorado, remind me not to move to the 15th house district. If he won 70% of the vote, that area must be filled with some of the dumbest, most feeble minded rednecks in the state of Colorado.

    "Landslide" elected......so are you suggesting that people shouldn't be allowed
    to vote the way they want or when their vote disagrees with your views and
    agendas?

    We probably have to re-examine what the term Christian means. Just like the taliban don't represent Islam, these bigots who call themselves Christians don't represent Christ. This politician would probably be better off as a leader in the Christian Identity Movement or with Phelp's and his ilk, but not in politics where he has to represent a diverse group of people.

    Views? the guy hates gays and thinks they are full of demons and he actually things gay animals are full of demons. The guy is not mentally sound and he announces that to the world. Sorry if someone votes for him they are not using anything but the christians can do no wrong card.

    great post and very true.

    This guy is dealing with demons, alright. But they're more the personal kind that tend to cause people to overcompensate in weird ways.

    He needs to do something. That line about the two men looking at the kid, licking their chops with lust in their eyes tells us more about his state of mind than anything he preaches about on the pulpit.

    ....The people have the right to elect whom they want. I'm sure there are
    regulations against electing a real four legged Ass though. :rolleyes:

    I think we need to revisit the separation of church from state and remind politicians that we are not electing chaplains or ministers.

    Give us your platform (are you for or against unlimited spending/taxation/gun control), and stop telling us what a moral Christian you are.

    And we have the right to call these people idiots.

    Will there "be a long" where some of you will admit than many people vote Republican simply because they're uneducated on actual issues?
