Grothman: God is Upset by Condemnation of Ugandan Law

Glenn Grothman, a far-right Tea Party state legislator from Wisconsin now running for Congress, has said lots of bizarre things over the years. In an interview with Voice of Christian Youth – America, he said that God is upset with John Kerry for condemning that brutal Ugandan anti-gay law.

Instead, what we have is the Secretary of State going to Africa and educating Ugandans or saying he is going to send American scientists to Uganda to explain how normal homosexuality is. Think about that. I mean, what must God think of our country? We had such a great country in the relatively recent past. Now America, which is supposed to be the light of the world, instead we’re the light going the opposite direction. I guess I wish we had more political leaders and religious leaders speaking out and saying, what in the world is John Kerry doing? I mean, what must God think of our country? If now, rather than sending people to Uganda to explain better agricultural techniques, sending missionaries to Africa educating people on Christianity, we send scientists to Africa to say how wonderful the homosexual lifestyle is. It is just unbelievable what has become of our country.

I know, right? Supporting equality? Unbelievable. What’s next, liberty and justice for all? It’s a world gone mad.

    I’ll bet Grothman can also tell us about ‘the Negro’ and the Curse of Ham as used to justify Christian racism.

  • Perhaps Grothman can use his personal hotline to God and tell the lazy creep to get off his ass and actually make an appearance. If the ole busybody in the sky doesn’t like what’s going on he can tell us himself, not foist the job off on the Grothmans of the world.

    God is so touchy.

    That’s why god sent tornadoes to Arkansas. He was going for Kerry’s house, but he is notorious for having a bad aim.

    Of course, I’m always mystified why people don’t understand the simple fact that most tornadoes crop up in states that have a ban against gay marriage. Iowa being the notable exception (see above, re: bad aim).

  • I don’t know how they do it. Even with all the distractions of the outside world, Teabaggers-slash-Republicans are still laser focused on the economy.


    …we send scientists to Africa to say how wonderful the homosexual lifestyle is…

    Fuck this guy!

    If he doesn’t understand why the John Kerry spoke out about the Ugandan bill then he has no place in any modern society especially no place in any position of power. Once again fuck this guy, I hope he doesn’t make it to the election.

    * Throws temper tantrums at minor provocation

    * Spends more energy lashing out at friends than enemies

    * Emotionally fragile — easily hurt by even indirect opposition

    * Insists on compliance with arbitrary and frequently-changed rituals

    I can’t tell if we’re talking about a toddler or senile dementia.

    Yeah! The Greatest Generation, who went to war to make sure that every nation can imprison, torture and kill anyone the people of that nation don’t like.

    Uganda (as well as other African countries apparently) is what happens when American family values parasites infect other countries with our culture wars. The blood of dead gay people (as well as imprisonments and physical attacks of all sorts) is on the hands of all these vile self righteous fanatics as far as I concerned. Watch God Loves Uganda or just look at you tube previews of the documentary if you want to know more about what I’m talking about.

  • sending missionaries to Africa educating people on Christianity,

    We did that already. That’s how they got the idea for the “kill the gays” bill in the first place.

    we send scientists to Africa to say how wonderful the homosexual lifestyle is.

    When did Kerry become a scientist?

  • steve84

    If god is so upset why doesn’t he destroy some cities, kill people’s firstborns or send a plague of locusts?

    Seems like the country is just full of people longing for the good old medieval period. They long for the days of an all-powerful church (their particular denomination, of course, not necessarily the Catholic Church), practical serfdom, overwhelming ignorance and the unavailability of an education, the predominance of irrational superstition, slaughter of heretics and others who don’t fit in, and maybe throw in some Holy Crusades. Maybe they need to remember that, as wonderful as the medieval period was, it also brought the worst outbreaks of the bubonic plague and average life expectancies in the 30s and early 40s. And maybe they need to remember that the Holy Crusades were ultimately a failure, and the persecutions of those regarded as “other” likewise failed in the end. Bloody stupid effing dangerous morons.

    I’ll just arbitrarily pick this post to say how much it pisses me off when Ed mulishly opines every other week that the difference between Republicans and Democrats is inconsequential. Just today, there must be a half dozen posts that show the parties to be light years apart, and still diverging. You either vote the Democratic ticket, or you are enabling reptiles like this Grothman.

  • dingojack

    Tim – and those difference are….?*



    * I’m sure you can give us a definitive one page list, right off the top of your head.

  • timpayne

    Read today’s posts. Every single one of the American assholes (arseholes in Australian?) is a Republican. Then read yesterdays, and then the day before. Pretty sure you can make your own list.

    He knows God personally? Did he get God his whole wardrobe? Did they go on double dates? Were they linked romantically for a time?

    Tim – so that’s a no then.

    I think these Merkins are mostly longing for a romaticized small town/Wild West version of the good old 19th century, where citizens policed themselves and folks lived simply and according to the Bible. If someone was the Wrong Sort you ran ’em out of town.

    Tim, dingo – the difference is in those social issues which the new feudal lords (the 1% or the 1%) don’t care about. They don’t care whether the peasants let gays marry or not or whether women have reproductive rights. The ultra-rich do whatever they want, anyway.


    They care about making money, and neither party seems to be talking much about issues that matter – government torture, imprisonment without trial, searches without warrants, and most importantly, global warming, the most serious threat to face humanity in at least 60,000 years. If you want a saner public discourse and a nicer world, vote Democratic (you too, dingo, it’s fun!). But if you want the really important stuff* taken care of, don’t hold your breath.


    * I’m not saying that human rights aren’t important, but it all seems dependent on their being actual, you know, people.
