Gordon Klingenschmitt, the disgraced Navy chaplain who was discharged for his refusal to obey explicit orders that he not use his uniform as a prop in a protest demanding that Jesus’ name be used in military prayers, recently threw his hat into the District 15 Colorado House race.
Klingenschmitt promises to oppose education standards and to fight for the repeal of evil “gun-grabbing laws,” but the reality of his intentions are more chilling. Klingenschmitt, for example, has stated that God doesn’t want gay people to have health care. He wants “Worthy of death” printed of gay couples’ wedding photos. He has pushed the idea that transgender women want access to the women’s restroom so they can rape their fellow occupants. He firmly believes that people who, according to his religion, are not going to heaven do not deserve to be treated equally by the government. “If they’re not going to get eternal benefits in Heaven, why should we give them government rewards here on this earth?” Klingenschmitt asked. “I don’t think we should.”
Given his incredibly bigoted and, frankly, horrible stance on just about everything, the fact that this man wants to go anywhere near policy is alarming enough–but his stated reason for wanting to run is far more alarming, as it shows exactly how delusional this man is.
Klingenschmitt explains in a campaign ad that he is running to
impose oppose a theocracy that he claims Democrats are trying to implement in the state of Colorado. That’s right–the Democrats. Are. Implementing. A. Theocracy.
This one you have to see to believe:
