Last year, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt announced that he was running for a seat in Colorado's legislature and his long history as a disgraced former Navy Chaplain who brags about having successfully performed an exorcism on a lesbian soldier and who has stated again and again that demonic spirits are behind everything from abortion to gay marriage to ENDA to President Obama to Madonna won him the support of the vast majority of GOP caucus-goers earlier this year, setting up a primary showdown against another GOP hopeful which took place last night.
Klingenschmitt won that primary race by several hundred votes, becoming the official Republican nominee for House District 15 in the Colorado House of Representatives, as he announced on his Facebook page:
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.
The Denver Post reports "Gordon Klingenschmitt beat Dave Williams in the GOP race for the seat held by Rep. Mark Waller, R-Colorado Springs, who opted to run for attorney general..."
RESULTS: Klingenschmitt 52.6% (3,472 votes) Williams 47.3% (3,128 votes)
Isn't this great news? Honestly the race was closer than I expected, and I congratulate my Republican opponent for running a very competitive race. Now we must beat the Democrat.
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.
Just let that sink in: a man who thinks that "Obamacare causes cancer," that the Bible commands people to own guns in order to "defend themselves against left wing crazies," and that the FCC is allowing demonic spirits to "molest and visually rape your children" is now a Republican candidate for office:
Klingenschmitt is a viciously anti-gay theocrat who openly proclaims that American law must reflect God's law, which is why gay people should be discriminated against since only people who are going to heaven are entitled to equal treatment by the government:
Gays, he says, have something inhuman and demonic inside of them, which is why he declares that teaching kids about gay marriage is mental rape and advocates that Christians should print anti-gay Bible verses on the backs of gay wedding photos:
Klingenschmitt has declared that the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy should never have been repealed since gay soldiers cannot serve effectively in combat because they are constantly "taking breaks on the combat field to change diapers all because their treacherous sin causes them to lose control of their bowels":
It is truly amazing that Colorado Republicans have now nominated a candidate for state office who proudly declares that "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":
