Tea Party Hopeful: Death to Gay People

Tea Party Hopeful: Death to Gay People

Bible based genocide. (Or God will be very, very angry..) 


http://firebrandprogressives.org/oklahoma-tea-party-candidate-calls-for-homosexuals-to-be-stoned-to-death/ 


Meet Scott Esk, Tea Party candidate for Oklahoma State House District 91. Esk, on his political website, believes that our rights come from God, and not from government, and is a big proponent of state rights. And he offers the usual Tea Party platform, being 100% pro-gun, pro-family, pro-life and low taxes. 

Esk first claims that Leviticus 20:13 gives people the right to judge others, and goes on to claim that it is man’s role to put others to death for homosexuality. Then he goes on to claim that if we don’t start killing homosexuals that God may send a series of “calamities” 

And then it gets worse...

OK GOP candidate: Let cities decide whether gays should be stoned to death

Scott Esk

A magazine editor in Oklahoma was putting together candidate information for a feature when a friend alerted him to online comments posted last year by a candidate for state representative.

“This guy posted on Facebook that homosexuals should be stoned to death,” said Rob Morris, who published the Moore Monthly and MooreDaily.com. “My first response was, ‘You’re nuts, nobody would be stupid enough to do that.’”

But Scott Esk, a Tea Party Republican and John Birch Society member, did exactly that – repeatedly.

The GOP candidate responded to a post on Pope Francis saying “who am I to judge?” on homosexuality by posting numerous Old Testament quotations prescribing capital punishment for LGBT people.

Another commenter asked, “So just to be clear, you think we should execute homosexuals (presumably by stoning)?”

“I think we would be totally in the right to do it,” Esk said. “That 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.”

Esk, who boasted of his “computer skills” and “good physical shape” to other Ron Paul supporters, said he became active in politics because he was tired of “collectivists stealing our freedoms constantly!!!”

“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,” said Eck, who also calls for jury trials in divorce cases.

Esk told other Facebook commenters that, “if it helps any,” he believed such laws should be instituted locally, and not at the federal level.

“I would hope that libertarians who don’t think perversion should be punished in any way between consenting adults would be open-minded and look at the different results between a state that ignores it and (one) that punishes it severely,” he said. “And within a state, cities and communities may well have different policies, and I cheer that. That way, people can decide for themselves whether they want to live in a particular community based in part on how things like this are dealt with.”

Morris called Esk to ask him about his comments.

“What I will tell you right now is that was done in the Old Testament under a law that came directly from God, and in that time, it was totally just — it came directly from God,” Esk said. “I have no plans to, you know, reinstitute that in Oklahoma law. I do have some very huge moral misgivings about those kinds of sins.”

Morris said he’d never met anyone in Oklahoma who held such extreme views.

“Even people that don’t agree with things like gay marriage, they — nobody wants the death penalty for gays,” Morris said. “I mean, that’s the most asinine thing.”

It always seems to me that the most vehement gay haters have an inward fear/inkling of being bent a certain way themselves.
