    A Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate in Ohio wants to make homosexual behavior a capital crime punishable by the death penalty.

    Merrill Keiser Jr. is a trucker with no political experience, but he hopes to beat fellow Democrat Rep. Sherrod Brown in the May primary. The winner will try to unseat Republican incumbent Sen. Mike DeWine, assuming he wins the GOP primary.

    "Just like we have laws against murder, we have laws against stealing, we have laws against taking drugs – we should have laws against immoral conduct," Keiser told WTOL-TV in Toledo.

    Keiser, 61, says he's running as a Democrat because that's how he was registered the last time he voted.

    The trucker, who hails from Fremont, Ohio, says there needs to be more adherence to biblical values in government, business and education – something he claims DeWine is not promoting.

    "I believe that the United States has been moved in a Godless direction by the courts," he told the Sandusky Register. "To get good men on the court, we need good senators."

    Some of Keiser's other positions include defense of the Second Amendment, securing U.S. borders, lower taxes to stimulate the economy, support of Israel and prayer in public schools.

    Keiser told the Register the United States should make conversion to Christianity part of the war on terror to teach Muslims the error of their choice in religion.

    The candidate also decries evolution, saying it is contrary to the Declaration of Independence.

    "The teaching of evolution works against the liberties we have in the United States," he told the paper. If a person believe in evolution, he or she "has no rights," he's quoted saying.

    He also opposes the United Nations, abortion on demand and thinks so-called global warming is a false concern.

    Liberal blogger Deborah White was less than thrilled with Keiser's candidacy and the media's response to it.

    "What if this hate-filled moron called for the execution of all blacks or all Jews?" she asked. "Would the public outcry be similarly subdued? Would the press still report it as a cute curiosity or merely an alternative viewpoint? Where is moral outrage in 2006?"

    White speculated Keiser was planted by the GOP.

    "He must be a Republican plant," she wrote. "Please ... someone tell me I'm correct."

    He'll never beat Dewine. I agree with a lot of what he's saying. However, the death penalty is certainly too extreme for gays. Good Heavens! Ohio has a decently proportioned suburban population, and they wouldn't go for this.

    But, in Ohio Redneck Country, where you rarely hear the terms "gay" or "homosexual" (it's either "queers" or "fags"), especially since many are just itching to fulfill their upbringing and vote Democrat... he might score some points.

    I read all of the above and never got the impression the guy was filled with "hate". Yet this liberal, bitch, shit bag has to throw that out there. THAT is where I see HATE, in the caustic comments of the above liberal.

    I like the guy, although I too think the death penalty for queers is a little extreme.

    I`m with Hawk, didn`t see the death penalty mentioned, but allowing this alternative life style to become mainstream is a big mistake, and putting a harsh penalty on it would be a step toward righting the wrongs of the past.

    The first line of the article says that's his position. I suppose it's possible the reporter made it up. As to the part where he was quoted, he thinks there ought to be laws against everything he considers immoral (paraphrased). I would imagine that would extend well past homosexuality to include drinking, smoking, smut, etc.

    I wonder how much campaign financing he'll get from the DNC with this kind of platform. :dunno:
