MS Lawmaker Andy Gipson Says Gays Spread Disease, Suggest They Should Be Put to Death


Mississippi state Representative Andy Gipson attacked gays on his Facebook page following Obama's endorsement of same-sex marriage earlier this week, Unity MS reports.

Wrote Gipson in a Facebook post:

Been a lot of press on Obama’s opinion on “homosexual marriage.” The only opinion that counts is God’s: see Romans 1:26-28 and Leviticus 20:13. Anyway you slice it, it is sin. Not to mention horrific social policy.


The Leviticus passage is the one suggesting that gay people be put to death.

He followed that up with a clarification to a commenter in the same thread:

Sorry I’ve been busy and not had a chance to reply. David, in addition to the basic principal that it is morally wrong, here are three social reasons it’s horrific social policy: 1) Unnatural behavior which results in disease, not the least of which is its high association with the development and spread of HIV/AIDS; 2) Confusing behavior which is harmful to children who have a deep need to understand the proper role of men and women in society and the important differences between men and women, and fathers and mothers; and 3) Undermines the longstanding definition of marriage as between one man and one woman, a definition which has been key to all aspects of social order and prosperity. Anytime that definition is weakened our culture is also weakened. And yes, that is also true for other conduct which weakens marriage’s importance in society.


Writes Unity MS, where you can find Gipson's contact information: "Mr. Gipson needs to realize he represents all of his constituents. He should not cherry-pick which constituents he wants to work for. He should also realize his positions are neither popular nor Republican. LGBT individuals, couples, and families help pay Gipson’s salary. It’s important that he remember that."

  2. A true Christian?
    For a heterosexual he's been thnking a lot of gays and their families.
    He must be proud, when he got his hateful message out and to the net.

  6. Apparently there are no mirrors, shampoo, or grooming supplies in the closet.

  10. Oliver, MO Lawmaker would have worked as well.

  11. @Dale, in addition to no grooming supplies, it also looks like that suit once belonged to his grandfather, who might have weighed 60 pounds more than Miss Andy.

  14. Yaaargh. In that picture he looks as though he's brainwashed and trying to fight but can't.

  15. Andy Gipson is not the real enemy; that collection of myths, made up history, hatefilled rhetoric and contradictions called the "holy" bible is the root enemy.Shine the light of reason on that vile book anytime you get the chance.

  16. I just sent him the following note to his Facebook page:
    I hope you also are for the public stoning to death of one Bristol Palin. Unwed whore that she is.
    I think you should go public with that. Unless you're one of those who picks and chooses which Bible quote suits your particular need.

  17. Put to death? This is the solution of those who perpetuate fear and hate and who bring grief upon our planet. This was Hitler's solution, as well. Perhaps, Andy should pick up a history book and read it - not just look at the pictures!

  18. $10 says there's a mens' room gloryhole in this asshat's not-so-distant past.

    Posted by: VoenixRising | May 18, 2012 2:45:43 PM

  19. Oh yeah... and report him to FB for posting death threats.

    Posted by: JimmyD | May 18, 2012 2:48:25 PM

  20. Well, Mississippi is one of the dumbest states in our nation. No real surprise here.

  21. Dismiss this cretin's vile comments at your own peril. He's the modern-day face of the Republican party. The Republicans might increase their majority in The House this November. They might gain majority control of The Senate. They might elect their candidate to The White House. The Republicans control the majority of States' legislatures and governorships. There are millions of Americans who believe just as Andy Gipson does. They vote. One appreciates the snarky, bitchy comments here, but again, dismiss what Gipson says and believes along with millions of others at your own peril. And, make sure you have your passports ready. Just in case....

  22. These black people are so homophobic. Lol!!!

  23. Please go to his facebook page and send him a note about how you feel.

    Then report his page for promoting hate speech and for calling on gays to be put to death.

    I told him I hope his wife was a virgin when they married, otherwise according to Leviticus she should be put to death.

  24. Opps, what color is that man in the picture??? Lol!!!

    Posted by: Mel Smith | May 18, 2012 2:58:19 PM

  25. "So much for that BLACK HOMOPHOBIA...Right?...LOL"

    Yes, CHRIS. We need David Hearn or Ratbastard or Andrew(the new one) to come here and post something about these evil Black homophobes. Why, his grand-pappy couldn't even spell "Gibson" correctly.

    And this one, Gipson, must have gone to the same plastic surgeon as Michael Jackson. Look, not only did they lighten his skin, straighten his hair, and narrow his nose--they cut off most of his big lucious lips. You can't eat grits with narrow lips like those. The grits'll slide down at the sides of your mouth.

    Disgusting Black homophobe...with a Dixie melooowdy...
