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.”

Trump may keep troops in Syria — despite campaign promise to end ‘never-ending wars’
President Donald Trump is learning why being the U.S. president isn't all rallies and fun state dinners; it's about difficult decisions.
New York Times reporters Maggie Habermann and Eric Schmitt wrote Sunday that Trump is considering leaving some troops on the ground in Syria, even though he wants to pull out and bring all troops home.
One plan proposed by the Pentagon says that a few hundred special forces would be left on the ground in Syria, while the rest would be shipped to Iraq. Trump also just sent troops to Saudi Arabia, despite a campaign promise to bring troops home.
MSNBC panel cracks up at Mick Mulvaney trying to pretend he never admitted to Trump’s quid pro quo
An MSNBC panel couldn't help but laugh at President Donald Trump's chief of staff for appearing on cable news shows Sunday to pretend he never admitted the president tried to bribe Ukraine.
Commentary Magazine editor John Podhoretz called it an "open and shut" case for emoluments.
"If it had happened and he made three cents profit, that's an impeachment, and that is not only an impeachable offense, it's a removable offense," he continued. "'No public official shall profit personally from his office.' Somebody said to him; you can't — you know, it's like, 'Stop it now!' Like, we have six months to find another place.
Trump is furious over news coverage of Mick Mulvaney’s flub — and he’s growing ‘increasingly frustrated and agitated’
President Donald Trump is watching Mick Mulvaney going down on cable news, said one political analyst on CNN Sunday. The criticism of the chief of staff came after Trump spent the weekend watching media coverage of Mulvaney's flub, the network reported.
"Trump has voraciously consumed news coverage about Mulvaney and has become more agitated," the source said according to the report. "Specifically, the President is concerned, according to the source, that Mulvaney is not transitioning enough to the role he is in now -- helping to lead the impeachment inquiry defense from the West Wing."
