Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) Says DOMA Ruling Is Attack On Jesus Christ, Harmful To Children: VIDEO

Representative Tim Huelskamp (R-Kansas), who has already announced his plan to reintroduce the Federal Marriage Amendment later this week, has been making the media rounds to express his strong disagreement with the Supreme Court's marriage equality rulings. Earlier today, Huelskamp appeared on a Christian radio program to discuss how gays and the left are "turning government against the church." Right Wing Watch reports:

Huelskamp accused the justices of trying to "rewrite the Constitution" and of attacking Jesus Christ himself. "The idea that Jesus Christ himself was degrading and demeaning is what they've come down to," he said.

The congressman also added that the left is bent on "ramming their views down the throats of Americans."

Earlier this week, Huelskamp appeared at a Heritage Foundation summit to discuss the real reason behind his crusade: the children

"Decades of social science research and centuries of American history has shown that every child deserves a mom and a dad. With this ruling they have further redefined marriage and I think children will be hurt."

Watch (and listen), AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. "The congressman also added that the left is bent on "ramming their views down the throats of Americans.""

    Really? "the left" should be changed to "christian right". No better than the talibans in my opinion. Also, this concept of separation of church and state seems really hard to understand for some.

  2. i have always strongly believed that if his Jesus were alive today, the very LAST thing he'd want to be is a christian.

  3. Why don't these Christians understand that their bible is not the law in the United States? And that America is a nation of laws NOT men, and that no one is above the law??? This man and others like him believe an entirely False Narrative about this country, and it really shows in their inability to stop beings so obnoxiously self-righteous, and start telling the truth.

  4. Tim does know we don't live in a theocracy based on fairy tales? Tim -find yourself a nice county in Kansas and wall it off from the infidels and create your own little religious paradise.

  7. I really wish theocrats like Huelskamp and Santorum would create "homelands" for people like themselves somewhere else in the world (Jesustan and Popesylvania?) and then fvck off.

  8. This just blows my mind. What are these people always so afraid of?

  9. Can't the Rapture just happen already and take all these blowhards away?

  10. Why is the dominant metaphor for seeking equality under the law always "ramming something down our throats"?

    Oh, yeah...because all these bigots can think about is sucking on a big fat cock.

  11. It has all been said before. What new can be said to ridicule these Neanderthals? This dead horse has been rotting for decades. Throw some dirt on him and walk away.

  12. Who cares?
    His media rounds consist of some Christian radio stations in Kansas while the "liberal media" totally ignored him.

  14. With marriages resuming in CA any federal amendment becomes a numerical impossibility. Do the math! one would think he, or at the least his staff, would have done so before making such an announcement!

  15. But I'm sure he thinks it's okay for clowns like him to turn the government against decent, law-abiding gay citizens.

  16. Poor Jesus Christ. He's so helpless against the forces of gaydom.

    The congressman sure is picturesque. Ramming our views down the throats of Americans.....Hmm. Wonder why he used that image. Says more about his fixations than about the left.

  17. I got something I'd LOVE to ram down that Republican reprobate's throat and it ain't my views.

  18. @Matt - "This just blows my mind. What are these people always so afraid of?"

    that they might be queer! those who yell the loudest have the most to hide...........

  19. "Congress shall make NO law respecting an establishment of religion." ~ First amendment

  20. I want to say "who cares", but then I remember this man is an elected official. While his silly amendment has been tried before and will fail again this time, he has the ability to introduce other, less obvious, less drastic legislation that can harm us just as much. We can't just blow him off as inconsequential (although I bet he'd like it). We have to remain diligent against people like this.

  21. Jesus is coming. Look busy!

    I really don't understand this kind of obsessive god-bothering where EVERYTHING is filtered through the lens of their religion. You believe in God and Jesus? Fine, whatever. But past a certain point it becomes a mental illness, a kind of OCD. But of course you can't SAY that because it's about Gawwwwd so the party line is that religious faith, no matter how obnoxious, repressive, and theocratic is good. Bullsh!t!

    What confuses me further is that people like Huelskamp, Bachmann, Kern, and many others actually get elected to public office.

    I think I were one of the gay billionaires who occasionally donated loads to gay causes I'd spend some of that money on private investigators to dig up the dirt on these Bible-thumping politicians because you KNOW that while they're being so publicly self-righteous behind the scenes they're up to all sorts of less-holy things. Public piety tends to be a cover for far uglier deeds. Perhaps someone needs to start a fund to hire investigators? I'd donate to that before I would some of the gay orgs who flood my inbox with self-congratulatory pleas for more funds.

  22. There is NO unbiased research (that wasn't rigged to say what the religious-reich wants it to say) that says children do better with a mother and father and there is no American history to prove that either. NONE! FACT. FACT. FACT!

  23. Let's subpoena Jesus Christ and hear exactly what his opinions on the topic are. Of course, serving the subpoena would be difficult, real hard to hand a piece of paper over to an imaginary being.

  24. Where are all the proud Republicans and elected leaders of the GOP to denounce this christofascist? Is this the face and voice you want to showcase your political ethics on parade ... a religious fundamentalist lunatic spouting blatant lies (show me where the constitution was rewritten, you hump)?

    This man typifies the far right wing fundamentalist religious base the GOP panders to.

    All the GOP defenders that post here ... show me anyone in a GOP leadership position that denounces this man today.

  25. Uhm, when did freedom of religion become "everyone follow my religion or else!"? Isn't that a theocracy?

    His religion can follow whatever rules they want (without infringing anyone else's religion). They can't shove it down anyone else's throat, though.........
