GOP candidate: Stoning Homosexuals, No Problem It’s In The Bible

20140611-212841-77321523.jpg

Tea Party state House candidate Scott Esk clarified his thinking recently when asked why he felt homosexuality was worthy of capital punishment:

That was done in the Old Testament under a law that came directly from God and in that time there it was totally just. It came directly from God. I have no plans to reinstitute that in Oklahoma law. I do have some very huge moral misgivings about those kinds of sins.

His original posts on a Facebook last year were:

That [stoning gay people to death] goes against some parts of libertarianism, I realize, and I’m largely libertarian, but ignoring as a nation things that are worthy of death is very remiss.

At the time stating:

I never said I would author legislation to put homosexuals to death, but I didn’t have a problem with it.

 

On his campaign website he states:

I am running for HD91 because I believe in the principles that made our state and nation great and unique in history – and I want to protect those principles. I believe that rights come from God – not from government – and that it should be limited, its taxes and spending should be low, its regulations few, and its protection of our liberties constant.

Our rights are not dependent on the writings, whether holy or constitutional, of people long since dead. They depend on the thinking of the living.

Dear Oklahoma please do not vote for a brain dead candidate.

  1. Yes, your sort has a problem with Christianity and Christians. Americans know this. That’s why your loathed and reviled by the nation that is still, to its shame, tolerant enough to house you and let you take part.

    That’ll likely change relatively soon though. I feel a storm coming, one that will sweep away the Godless and destroy them. Soon you’ll not be allowed to have a voice or influence society.

    In other words, happier days for Americans are coming.

  2. Hi jonolan.
    How are things all the way back there in the Stone Age?

  3. Genuine nasty little dunce, or power hungry hustler looking for and edge? You decide.
