Our old friend Gordon Klingenschmitt says a lot of egregiously stupid things, but with his fellow wingnuts apparently in a competition to see who can say the dumbest and craziest pronouncements, he’s upping his game. Appearing on the David Pakman show, Klingenschmitt said:
“You only have 15 percent of the middle who are hypocrites, who think, Jesus is cool, but I don’t agree with how he defined marriage,” Klingenschmitt said. “When Jesus talks about one flesh, he’s really being a scientist, he’s being a biologist. Because he realizes and he’s articulating simple biology, that when a sperm and an egg form together, they match in a zygote and a new DNA is formed and it becomes one new human flesh.”
“[W]e’re not reading our biology textbooks,” the former chaplain added.
“Which were written by Jesus, as you say,” Pakman pointed out. “Jesus was a biologist.”
“Well, he defined marriage between one man and one women, becoming one zygote, becoming one flesh,” Klingenschmitt insisted. “And that’s the only way in the next 100 years that humans are going to be able to procreate. If you get two men together and they mate, they’re not going to have a baby. If you get three women and a dog together, and they all mate together, they’re not going to have a baby.”
And obviously, if we give gay people equal rights, everyone will then magically become gay, amirite?
