Colorado lawmaker: Jesus wants gay Boy Scout leaders to be ‘drowned in the depths of the sea’

Published

on

Colorado state Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt (R) said on Monday that it would be “better” for the Boy Scouts of America to drown its gay scoutmasters in the “depths of the sea” instead of lifting a ban on them.

As the Boy Scouts of America was voting to lift its ban on openly gay adult leaders on Monday, Klingenschmitt reacted on his Internet show.

“If your boy is in one of those organizations, you need to get him out of there,” he warned. “Because what they’re going to do is promote homosexual men to mentoring and camping with your boys in the woods. And it will lead to child abuse… The children are in danger. It’s not about the sexual pleasure of the adults.”

Klingenschmitt pointed viewers a verse from the book of Matthew: “Whoever causes one of these to little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”

“This is what Jesus said about child molesters,” the Republican lawmaker insisted. “If you are going to cause a child to sin, it would be better if you just had a millstone hung around your neck and you were drowned in the depths of the sea. Compared to the judgement that almighty God is going to implement on child molesters when he throws them into hell.”

“Personally, I would rather be drowned in the depths of the sea than face the wrath of almighty God for having caused any of these little ones to sin,” Klingenschmitt concluded.

Meghan McCain gets fact-checked on new Kavanaugh accuser — and asks if Clarence Thomas got impeached

Published

on

"The View" host Whoopi Goldberg had to fact-check Meghan McCain's description of a New York Times correction in a bombshell new report about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

The newspaper reported that the FBI failed to interview former Yale classmates about sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh during the confirmation process last fall, and the authors of a new book found a new accuser.

McCain pointed to an editor's note appended to the story that she believes casts doubt on the new reporting, but Goldberg asked her to clean up some of the claims she made.

The Republican Party is a ‘cult’ that isn’t even letting its own voters have a say anymore: Joe Walsh

Published

on

On CNN Monday, former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) blasted the GOP for shutting down state primaries to block him from mounting a challenge to President Donald Trump.

"Look, we can’t be numb to this," said Walsh. "I know it’s difficult because this president seemingly every day attacks our democracy, but we have to be outraged. I always want to pinch myself and remind myself that this isn’t Russia. I do not live in Russia. I refuse to live in Russia. We can’t just cancel elections in this country. That’s what Donald Trump is doing. He’s literally canceling elections, and it’s very easy to be pissed off at Trump, but we’re used to this with Trump. He is a would-be dictator. He would like this to be Russia. I’ve got to tell you, I’m blown away in my disappointment with the Republican Party who is in cahoots with this president, and again, literally eliminating elections."
