Colorado lawmaker: Government is ‘cooperating with demonic spirits’ by banning gay reparative therapy
Republican Colorado state Rep. Gordon James Klingenschmitt accused the U.S. government of cooperating with demonic spirits this week after the Supreme Court refused to overturn a ban on so-called “cures” for homosexuality.
Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court allowed a lower court ruling to stand that upheld a New Jersey law banning the discredited practice of converting gay people into heterosexuals.
On his Monday Pray in Jesus Name broadcast, Klingenschmitt argued that Christian psychotherapists had been stripped of their “free speech rights” because they could no longer use reparative therapy, which he said was “intended to repair the character flaw inside of someone who has a character problem and that problem is homosexual addiction.”
“The Holy Spirit of God is a healing God and he would come, perhaps, through the psychotherapist to heal the homosexual of the sinful addiction,” Klingenschmitt explained. “And yet, there is a demonic spirit inside of the addict that is controlling their voluntary choices or, at least, has contracted with them and is manifesting through them in this sinful addiction.”
“What the lower court judges are doing is they are cooperating with the demonic spirit inside of the homosexual addict, and those judges are now reinforcing the sin,” he insisted. “That’s what these bad judges have done.”
“The Bible says the opposite,” the first term state legislator added. “We’re supposed to hold on to what is good and reject every kind of evil, including evil spirits.”
