Homophobic Ex-Navy Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt Leads GOP Field in Colorado House Race

Klingenscmitt

Gordon Klingenschmitt, the former Navy chaplain who has made a career out of making outrageous anti-gay claims on his “Pray in Jesus Name” program, looks to be leading the GOP nomination in the race for Colorado’s heavily-Republican House District 15. 

At a county GOP assembly on Saturday, Klingenschmitt “won the favor of the delegates with 71 percent of the vote, preventing two other candidates nominated from hitting the 30 percent threshold.”

Another GOP candidate, however, had gathered the necessary signatures to appear on the ballot, indicating that a primary battle is expected. 

That candidate, Dave Williams, has his own laundry list of virulently anti-gay statements and actions, so it appears that regardless of the primary’s outcome, voters will likely be sending a homophobe to the capital come November.

Gordon Klingenscmitt, the disgraced former Navy Chaplain who has said in the past that gay parents don’t love their babies, they “lust” for them and has also bragged that he can “exorcise” same-sex attractions from gay people, is now running for a state House seat in Colorado. 

Right Wing Watch reports:

Complaining that the state's civil unions bill does not have a religious exemption, Klingenschmitt asked voters to "send at least one person to the state legislature who is an ordained minister," vowing that he would defend the religious liberties of Christians from the Democrats' attempt to impose a theocracy upon them. 

Klingenscmitt is running for the state's House District 15, which encompasses portions of Colorado Springs.

Homophobic Ex-Navy Chaplain: Jesus Would Command Married Gay Couples to Divorce Immediately - VIDEO

On his "Pray in Jesus Name' program yesterday, former Navy chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt weighed in on last month's news of the gay, married Army couple that had been barred from attending a military marriage enrichment program at Fort Irwin, California. Right Wing Watch reports:

...Klingenschmitt said that was the right decision because Christian chaplains can never provide counseling to gay couples, other than to order them to divorce ... which is just what Jesus would do.

"Jesus, if he were providing marriage counseling to two gay men who were married," Klingenschmitt asserted, "Jesus would command them to get divorced immediately"

Right-Wing Host: Gay Parents Don't Love Babies, They 'Lust' for Them — VIDEO

Klingendschmitt

Former Navy Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt, who hosts a 'Pray in Jesus Name' program, posted a segment this week bashing adoption by gays, Right Wing Watch reports:

While discussing the case, Klingenschmitt put a photo of two men and a baby on the screen so that he could point out that "one of the men almost has his tongue hanging out, like he's licking his chops, like this baby is ours now. And that's fine, you may call that love, but it looks to me a little bit like lust."

Klingenschmitt went on to say that gay couples "crave" to adopt "the children of heterosexual couples" so that they can raise and recruit them into the "homosexual lifestyle," declaring that allowing that to happen is child abuse.

Westboro Baptist Church Member Debates Homophobic Former Navy Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt: VIDEO

And they agree on nothing.

David Pakman, who arranged the debate, offers a quick preview for us:

"'God Hates Fags' is the slogan of WBC, but the Chaplain says there is no indication God hates anyone, and is against the gay death penalty, which WBC favors. Klingenschmitt believes in gay exorcisms, and claims to have performed many, with about a 50% success rate. Unfortunately, Westboro believes exorcisms are imaginary nonsense. WBC famously pickets soldier's funerals, claiming their deaths are punishment to the US for accepting homosexuality. Chaplain, who was in the Navy, believes WBC is distasteful for doing this. Additionally, as a cherry on top, Chaplain believes that 'God Hates Fags' is a sentiment that indicates the WBC is actually Jewish, not Baptist."
