    Is This The Craziest GOP Candidate Ever?

    "Scott Esk, a Republican Tea Party candidate in Oklahoma, got into a debate on Facebook last summer in which he advocated killing homosexuals.

    “I think we would be totally in the right to do it,” Esk wrote in comments uncovered by Oklahoma journalist Rob Morris. “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.”

    When pressed, Esk added: "I never said I would author legislation to put homosexuals to death, but I didn’t have a problem with it."

    Esk is running for the state's House of Representatives. The primary is scheduled for June 24.

    When contacted by Morris, who runs the news outlet Moore Daily, Esk didn't deny making the comments or back down from the rhetoric."

    Was looking for other things, but when I saw this thought it worth mentioning.

    It appears the poor deranged pilgrim is against sin. He should be drawn and quartered for not moving into the 21st Century.

    If it weren't for our laws, evangelical Christians here would be behaving like the Muslims they hate so much in the middle east.

    You only hope that would be the case,but with people like yourself,you are more than willing to paint with a fire hose.There are nuts in every faith and walk of life.

    In a parallel universe somewhere, evangelical christians run the government and you're in the crowd cheering Kim Davis as she tosses gays off rooftops.

    Remember when Tea Party meant libertarian rather than rabid conservative?

    Pretty sure it's illegal to throw people off roofs in the Middle East too. :) As with gun control myths, the laws don't prevent the crimes, they just make it punishable after the fact.

    Wow, quite the broad brush.

    And something tells me that, if someone said something negative about Muslims, you'd be one of those defending Islam by saying "not all Muslims are terrorists."

    The PC-Protected Religion sure has its defenders here. And they wonder why their motives are questioned.
