Paul Endorser: Homosexuals Should Be Executed

By Proof

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."

  1. What a cheap shot.

    I've never heard of Phillip Kayser or Drew Ivers, and now one's bland support of the other's support of Ron Paul is an indictment of Ron Paul.

    Establishment GOP hacks must be really terrified of Ron Paul.

  2. Ron Paul is older than dirt. As if this has any relevancy whatsoever.

    Ron Paul has the only real conservative agenda and libertarian principles in play.

    It is too bad he and his campaign apparently lost sight of one simple reality, you are often judged by the company you keep and those you allow to speak or wrote for you. It pays to be ever vigilant.

    Johnson may the beneficiary of Paul's implosion.

  3. This just in:

    Romney supporter turns out to be someone who molests collies!

    Newt supporter once said nice things about Hitler!

    Santorum supporter revealed as closet queen who marched in the gay pride parade!

  4. Bachmann IA campaign manager jumps ship. Joins Paul' s campaign.

    Another not so honest hopeful soon to pay the price of her calculated partial truths, Oh My!

    Integrity Matters.

  5. RN: "Ron Paul is older than dirt. As if this has any relevancy whatsoever." You have to be older than dirt to remember Art Linkletter, much less to have met him. It establishes the time frame.

    If you want bland, antiseptic language, read the phone book.

    Grant: Your fantasies about tangential support for the other candidates are duly noted. Can you tell me in any of those hypothetical cases, did those campaigns embrace the endorsement? As in, "We welcome Rev. Kayser's endorsement"?

    Big difference.

  6. Yes, in all three cases. So, no difference.

    It's possible to raise the level of discussion here, but it requires at least a small amount of effort.

  7. I've worked for several candidates and campaigns over the years, and for that reason I know full well that all politicians have a certain number of people who are simply crazy. Heck, who is Hagee supporting this year?

    After the primaries are over, I'm willing to bet you'll suddenly become irate when these same "unacceptable" people remember the insults and refuse to support the GOP candidate.

    And when Obama wins again, heck, you can blame them for that too.

    May the Reason of 2012 exceed that of 20011.
