Gordo ‘Discerns’ Spiritual Battle in Lesbian Legislator

A couple weeks ago an openly lesbian legislator in Hawaii voted against marriage equality, garnering some much-deserved criticism. Gordon Klingenschmitt slid on his handy dandy Demonic Spirit Decoder Ring and “discerned” that the Holy Spirit influenced her to do so even though she is also possessed by a demon. Reminds me of the scene in Ghostbusters when Sigourney Weaver says to Bill Murray “I want you inside me” and he says “Sounds like you’ve got at least two people in there already. Might get a bit crowded.”

    Remember that this is someone who performed exorcisms on gay people when he was in the military.

    There is no Klingenschmitt, only drool.

    It’s a good thing I’m out of tea, or I would have snaffled it up my nose when I finally decoded that, busterggi. Well played.

    busterggi – will you now need 300cc of Thorazine? (I always wonder if any of the producers of that movie knew that’s about 10 oz.) lol

    I hope the demon is Gozer the Traveler…He will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldrini, the traveler came as a large and moving Torg! Then, during the third reconciliation of the last of the McKetrick supplicants, they chose a new form for him: that of a giant Slor! Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you!

    Modusoperandi @5,

    Thanks for that.

    Whenever I encounter familiar theological gobbledegook, I try to hear it the way I hear that line from Ghostbusters. It only sounds like nonsense because it’s unfamiliar, and Bible stories only sound “normal” because we’ve heard them numerous times. We know the referents and fill in the connections without even thinking about it. But if we switch off the automatic associations, it’s just a variation on Gozer and the Zuuls. Just a weird, old story.

    Now if you will excuse me, I have to catch a bus to Tanagra.

    Take your time. Darmok and Jalad aren’t even there yet.

    I thought all the buses were delayed when the walls fell.
