Demon-Obsessed Anti-gay Colorado Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt Announces State Senate Bid: VIDEO

Klingenschmitt

Demon-obsessed homophobe, religious zealot and Colorado House of Representatives embarrassment Gordon Klingenschmitt has announced his plans to run for a state Senate seat, The Gazeltte reports:

Klingenschmitt, R-Colorado Springs, went through a list of his accomplishments in the state Legislature Wednesday at the Airplane Restaurant. He also discussed his attempts to "fight for Republican principles" that didn't make it through the Democrat-controlled House. He took a small handful of questions limited to constituents in House District 15, teasing his "plans for 2016" along the way, before announcing he plans to run for Senate District 12.

The seat is held by Senate President Bill Cadman, who will reach his term limit in 2016.

Kligenschmitt added that he fasted for 72 hours before the Wednesday night meeting to ask God about his political future. Klingenschmitt's state Senate aspirations are thus little more than hunger-induced delusions. 

Earlier this month, Klingenschmitt made the prediction that gays will 'recruit' 20% of all children by the next century.

Marcorubio

In an interview with CBS's Face the Nation on Sunday, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio stated that while he does not support same-sex marriage, he also doesn't believe sexual orientation is a "choice."

Said Rubio:

"I don't believe same-sex marriage is a constitutional right. I also don't believe that your sexual preferences are a choice for the vast enormous majority of people. The bottom line is I believe that sexual preference is something that people are born with."

Marco Rubio: the candidate who doesn't blame you for being gay and will even attend your wedding...he just doesn't think you should be able to have one in the first place.

Scott Walker Admits He's Attended a Same-sex Wedding Reception: VIDEO

Walker

Add Wisconsin governor and likely presidential candidate Scott Walker to the growing list of Republicans who've been asked "Would you attend a gay wedding?"

The New York Times reports:

“That’s certainly a personal issue,” Mr. Walker said at a brief news conference after addressing a gathering of New Hampshire Republicans here. Referring to his wife, he continued, “Tonette and I and our family already had a family member who’s had a reception. I haven’t been to a wedding. That’s true even though my position on marriage is still that’s defined between a man and a woman, and I support the Constitution of the state. But for someone I love, we’ve been at a reception.” The governor was away on business when the wedding occurred, but he later attended a reception for the newlyweds.

Last June, a cousin of Mrs. Walker, Shelli Marquardt, was married to her partner at Waukesha County Courthouse outside Milwaukee, according to media reports. The Walkers’ then-19-year-old son, Alex, served as a witness and signed his name to the marriage certificate.

Martin O'Malley Goes After Hillary Clinton's Cautious Record on Gay Rights in Marriage Equality Video: WATCH

O'malley

Former Maryland governor and likely Hillary Clinton challenger Martin O'Malley released a video yesterday touting his longstanding support for marriage equality. 

"History celebrates profiles in courage, not profiles in convenience," O'Malley says in the video. "The dignity of every person tells us that the right to marry is not a state right, it is a human right."

In March 2012, O'Malley signed a marriage equality bill in Maryland. Referendum supporters later put the issue on the November ballot where it passed with 52% of the vote. 

Bloomberg notes that the video was released mere hours after Clinton released a statement yesterday in support of a pro-equality SCOTUS ruling this year and that timing "seems to imply that Clinton's Wednesday statement was an act of convenience, not courage." Clinton had previously advocated a state-by-state approach to marriage.

Rachel Maddow Attempts to Unscramble Marco Rubio and Rand Paul's Positions on Gay Rights: VIDEO

Maddow

With the 2016 presidential campaign underway, Rachel Maddow this week took a look at the media frenzy surrounding the declared candidates and the GOP's tightrope walk on issues like gay rights. 

Said Maddow:

"One happy byproduct of, one benefit of the frenzy is getting to see them invent new lines for themselves to tiptoe down as they try on the spot to invent reasonable sounding, anti-gay policy positions that accomplish this neat trick of not turning off the vast majority of the country by seeming too much like a homophobe but also seeming aggressively anti-gay enough to be electable inside the super anti-gay Republican base bubble."

Later, Maddow chatted with former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs about the culture war's role on the GOP side and the various campaign trail "trap door" questions that await candidates on both sides of the aisle.
