Representative Gordon Klingenschmitt is the gift that keeps on giving; to his opponents, that is. We’ve told you a few times about the lunacy of this man who thinks exorcisms are real things, who is absolutely baffled by the concept of transgender people, and who thinks that a the woman who was attacked in a horrific attempt at a fetus theft had it coming because abortions are legal. This time he’s going after the Boy Scouts and calling for the drowning of some of their leaders. Seriously.
Klingenschmitt’s latest lunacy comes on the heels of the Boy Scouts’ decision to no longer discriminate against gay people serving in leadership positions within the organization. Somehow, he thinks that all gay people are child molesters and are just waiting for the opportunity to get children alone in the woods so they can have their way with them. Ol’ Klingy subscribes to the absolutely delusional belief that because they don’t want to engage in relationships with people of the opposite sex that they must be complete perverts.
But he doesn’t stop there. He goes on to quote some scriptures that call for the drowning of any child molester (read: gay people) by having a “millstone hung around his neck,” and being “drowned in the depths of the sea.”
Since this is a wild train of thought to try to follow, let’s break it down.
First, Klingenschmitt believes that gay people are gay for sexual reasons and sexual reasons alone. They do not have any identity whatsoever besides that fact, and that fact alone defines their entire being and who they are. In other words, he believes that once someone “chooses” to be gay, they give themselves over to lust completely, and that lust must come in the form of molestation of children, in much the same way that if you were to have sex in any position other than missionary you will probably become a rapist and attack goats for not wearing pants.
Second, he believes that all gay people are child molesters who are waiting for an opportunity to get all of the children alone away from the prying eyes of parents for nefarious purposes. Nevermind the fact that this is patently false in every way and has been a discredited idea that only the most feeble minded of radicals believe.
Third, he believes that child molesters should all be put to death in a graphic and horrific way, don’t you worry about the justice system or any of that silly nonsense. Why, it’s probably been infiltrated by the gays anyway, so it’s better to just tie a millstone around anybody you even suspect, no matter how tenuous the suspicion, and toss them to Davy Jones’ locker.
For their part, the Colorado GOP has once again condemned Klingenschmitt for his latest rant.: “We strongly condemn Gordon Klingenschmitt’s highly offensive comments. As we’ve said in the past, Gordon does not speak on behalf of the Party, nor do his words reflect our Party’s values.” Can’t you just hear the patience running out for this clown?
