Paul Endorser: Homosexuals Should Be Executed

Not this guy.

Some might say that our coverage of Ron Paul has been a little lopsided of late, and there are a number of reasons for that. One, is his apparent placement in the polls in Iowa and New Hampshire, despite approximately half of his support coming from other than Republicans. And two, Art Linkletter used to say that "Kids say the darndest things". Art Linkletter never met Ron Paul*.

I could write about the ...Jon Huntsman campaign, if that weren't as exciting as watching milk curdle. (I put in the ellipsis, since it usually takes me just a second or two to remember his name.) Remember that guy some years back, back before Tebow ever Tebowed, used to go to football games and sit on the end zone side of the stands, wearing a rainbow colored wig? Whenever a team would kick a field goal or an extra point in his direction, he would stand up with a sign that said "John 3:16"** on it. Hundreds of people in the end zone, but the guy getting the attention was the one in the rainbow wig. Which brings us to Ron Paul...Since Paul is generating the buzz about Iowa, and complained not that long ago that he wasn't getting as much coverage as he should, we are making up for lost time! (Moral: Be careful what you wish for!)

via the Huffington Post, Phillip Kayser, Ron Paul Endorser, Called For Executing Homosexuals Under 'Biblical Law'

Ron Paul's campaign is touting the endorsement of Phillip G. Kayser, an Iowa pastor who believes in imposing the death penalty on homosexuals, reports Talking Points Memo.

"We welcome Rev. Kayser's endorsement and the enlightening statements he makes on how Ron Paul's approach to government is consistent with Christian beliefs," said Paul's Iowa chairman, Drew Ivers, in a recent press release on Paul's campaign website.


Okay...it's not as if there's been any controversy at all about whom Paul accepts support from!

"Difficulty in implementing Biblical law does not make non-Biblical penology just," wrote Kayser in a recent pamphlet. "But as we have seen, while many homosexuals would be executed, the threat of capital punishment can be restorative." Kayser added that homosexuals could be prosecuted only after the law was enacted.


"many homosexuals would be executed" But not all! (Vote Ron Paul!)

*I don't know this for a certainty. Ron Paul is older than dirt and he may have met Linkletter at some point in his life. However, it makes for a better rhetorical flourish if we say he did not. I, as always, am ready to post a retraction on the slim, outside chance that I am incorrect.

**John 3: 16 is a reference to the third chapter of the book of John, in the New Testament, the sixteenth verse:
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

  2. Is it me or does it seem like everyone in politics is losing their minds?

  3. In Iowa and New Hampshire the nuts from the Democrap party are allowed to vote for the worse candidates in our party imaginable. That's how we get people like Mittens, John McCain, and Ron Paul. That needs to be changed. That nut job in the end zone is picking our candidate.

    Let the light of the press shine brightly on that nut job Ron Paul.

  4. It's appropriate that the guy in the picture is making the international hand symbol for lesbian sex.

  5. I was just beginning to re-think my opposition to Dr. Paul's candidacy. But Paul's embrace of such a blatant hate-monger just reinforces my initial revulsion to him. And is one more thing that makes Ron Paul similar to Mahmoud Ahmadinnerjacket.

    Thanks for posting this!

  6. 'Fiddle: Yup. Can't see how this will play well with the majority of his base.

    Admiral: Yup. Welcome to 21st Century politics!

    Odie: Yup. We've got to tighten up the nominating process. We cannot let our opposition pick the candidate they'd most like to run against.

    Chuck: Not an expert there, I'll have to take your word for it!

    FMP: It's not so much that Paul believes as his supporters do, he probably doesn't. But his "strange bedfellow" (pun intended) approach to accepting support and contributions hardly supports the idea of a principled campaign. Unless, the only principle is getting yourself elected...

  7. Pope Ron Paul doesn't expect to win anything of significance. He's just enjoying the hell out of being treated like Elvis by his Star Trek Convention of an entourage. This is pure vanity.

  8. Good analogy, Chuck, The Federation's foreign policy was nearly as muddled as Paul's, too!
