Gordon Klingenschmitt Says Rep. Jared Polis Wants To Behead Christians, Nominates Him In Ice Bucket Challenge - VIDEO

Gordon Klingenschmitt

Gordon Klingenschmitt, a Republican nominee for a seat in Colorado’s statehouse, has accused Democrats of lacking a sense of humor after he sent an email which said that Congressman Jared Polis (D-CO) will “join ISIS in beheading Christians,” reports The Raw Story.

Klingenschmitt won a primary election in June and hopes to replace Mark Waller (R-Colorado Springs).

In the email, Klingenschmitt wrote:

“The open persecution of Christians is underway. Democrats like Polis want to bankrupt Christians who refuse to worship and endorse his sodomy. Next he’ll join ISIS in beheading Christians, but not just in Syria, right here in America.”

In reply, Mark Ferrandino, Speaker of the Colorado House, condemned Klingenschmitt’s remarks and demanded that Colorado Republicans do the same.

Colorado Republican spokesperson Owen Loftus said that Klingenschmitt’s comments “in no way reflect the views of the party.”

By way of apology, Klingenschmitt has since issued an apology of sorts via YouTube in which he blames Democrats for lacking a sense of humor and misunderstanding his use of hyperbole.

“This weekend I sent out an email alert to my constituents in which I used hyperbole. You know what hyperbole is. It’s a literary device where you exaggerate to make a point. Well, apparently some Democrats do not have a sense of humor and they were offended by some of the things I said using hyperbole this weekend.”

Although Klingenschmitt admitted in the video it was wrong to compare Polis to Islamic State extremists, he continued to claim that the Democrat was “persecuting Christian business owners here in America.”

Gordon Klingenschmitt: Trans Folks Shouldn't Be Allowed in Churches or Public Restrooms - VIDEO

Gordon klingenschmitt

Gordon Klingenschmitt, the homophobic former Navy chaplain and likely future Colorado state representative, had some pretty nasty things to say on his radio program yesterday about a lawsuit filed against Hobby Lobby by a transgender female employee who claims she was denied access to a women’s restroom facilities.

Said Klingenschmitt (after making a transphobic, Rush Limbaugh-approved dick joke):

"The Scriptures say in Deuteronomy 23, 'that he that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord.' And if they can't enter the congregation of the Lord, they certainly shouldn't be allowed to enter the ladies bathroom."

Colorado Republican Candidate Gordon Klingenschmitt: Jesus Will Throw Gays Into Hell – VIDEO

Gordon Klingenschmitt

Continuing his obsession for all things hell-bound, Colorado GOP legislature candidate Gordon Klingenschmitt took to his show "Pray In Jesus Name" to proclaim that when Jesus returns he will overrule the decisions of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, who struck down Utah's ban on gay marriage. Then, in pure fetishistic revelry he ensures that after Jesus takes over the courts he will throw gay men into Hell. It will even be printed in Heaven's newspaper. Seriously.

Demon-Obsessed Anti-Gay Nut Gordon Klingenschmitt Wins GOP Primary in Colorado House Race

Klingenschmitt

Gordon Klingenschmitt, the former Navy chaplain who has made a career out of exposing (and exorcising) the “demonic” forces behind gay marriage and LGBT rights in general, has won the GOP primary in the race for Colorado’s heavily-Republican House District 15.

The Denver Post reports Klingenschmitt beat opposing candidate Dave Williams 52.6%-47.3% in the GOP race for the seat held by retiring Rep. Mark Waller.

Wrote Klinginschmitt on Facebook:

We won! Thanks to 35 volunteers knocking on doors and YOUR grassroots donations, I am now the Republican nominee for State Rep in Colorado Springs HD15. [...]

However, we have some debt from the primary race. I just got a bill for $4,138 in printing costs and we have a few more bills outstanding, due this week.

Can you please contribute to help us repay our primary debt for this election victory? Then we can start from a clean slate to run against a common-core anti-gun Democrat in Nov.

Klingenschmitt wins. Colorado loses. 


Gordon Klingenschmitt Says the ‘Ultimate Hate Speech’ is to ‘Endorse’ Homosexuality - VIDEO

Klingenschmitt

On today’s “Pray In Jesus Name” program, former Navy chaplain and current candidate for Colorado’s District 15 Gordon Klingenschmitt praised the Colorado baker refusing service to gay couples – adding that the real “hate speech” comes when people endorse homosexuality rather than telling gays they are destined for Hell.

Said Klingenschmitt:

By endorsing their sin he would not be showing compassion to them; he would be showing cruelty. So the ultimate hate speech is to endorse homosexuality because you give them the impression that it's okay and that deceives them and ultimately trips them into Hell"

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.
