Our old friend Gordon Klingenschmitt, who is now a member of the Colorado state legislature, hasn’t slowed down a bit on recording himself saying egregiously stupid things. On a recent show, he said that bakers who refuse to make cakes for same-sex weddings are “blessing” the gay couples:
After asserting that it is the goal of the government to bankrupt Christian business owners, Klingenschmitt declared that Aaron and Melissa Klein “are being persecuted for righteousness sake” and hailed them “for actually being a blessing to the homosexual community by speaking truth to them and refusing to participate in their acts of sodomy. They are defining right and wrong and saying, ‘We are not going to endorse your sin because it is harmful to you in the homosexual community.'”Klingenschmitt then went on to pray that Christians will not “manifest the demonic spirit that would endorse that sin” but will have “the freedom to not agree with the Devil.”
Wait, bakers are “refusing to participate in their acts of sodomy”? Does he think that gay people actually have sex with the cake at their wedding receptions? And even if they did, that this somehow forces the person who baked the cake to have sex with them too? The word “bizarre” seems inadequate to describe such inane statements.
