Klingenschmitt Identifies Another Demon

I always laugh when Gordon Klingenschmitt “discerns” (read: makes shit up) another demonic spirit in people he’s never even met. This time it’s trans people, who apparently have two demons: a “demonic spirit of lying” and a “predatory spirit of sexual exploitation.”

On his “Pray In Jesus Name” program today, the Colorado Republican state legislator said that “there is a demonic spirit of lying” inside of transgender people, whom he said are “parading their parts” in front of small children because they are driven by “a predatory spirit of sexual exploitation.”

Klingenschmitt then once again asserted that since the Bible says that transgender people are not allowed in church, they should likewise be banned from using public facilities, saying that “if they can’t enter the assembly of the Lord, why should they be able to enter your women’s locker room.”

You know who else couldn’t enter the temple? Non-Jews. That means you, Gordo. Guess you can’t use public facilities anymore. Sorry, it’s your own, uh, “logic.”

    Studies show that people’s gods are their sockpuppets. So they resemble their imaginers.

    Klingenshmitt’s god is a monster similar to a demon. His god also isn’t very powerful. In Gordon’s murky world, demons run around doing anything and everything and his god can’t or won’t stop them. In fact, sometimes his god does what they do and resembles them.

    Which tells one enough about Klingenschmitt who is clearly a rather malevolent person who was fired from his Navy chaplain job. It also doesn’t say much good for the fundie xian voters of Colorado Springs who elected him to the Colorado legislature.

    “Parading their parts”?

    How does he think women use the bathroom? In troughs, like in men’s rooms at stadiums?

    @1 and 2, SteveO: He might know more than you think. He just doesn’t know it!

    Well, there was the time (mumble) years ago at Candlestick Park in San Francisco at a Niner’s game, when I was just entering the men’s room (where they had those urine troughs) as a very attractive, very feminine person was leaving. I don’t know if she used the trough, but I know none of the men looked twice … even me.

    “the Colorado Republican state legislator said that ‘there is a demonic spirit of lying’ inside of transgender people”

    No, but there may be a “demonic spirit” of bullshit inside of Klingoschitt. Who’s the biggest liar here? Klingoschitt!

    “whom he said are ‘parading their parts’ in front of small children because they are driven by’“a predatory spirit of sexual exploitation.'”

    Wrong again, asshole. Transgender people simply want to use the bathroom. You say they’re unnatural? What’s more natural then having to go?

    “if they can’t enter the assembly of the Lord, why should they be able to enter your women’s locker room.”

    Is Klingoschitt saying that transgender people can’t go to heaven? Who’s demonic, again?

    Who knew that school locker rooms and pro-sports team locker rooms were public facilities? 😉

    I read the King James version cover to cover — twice — and I don’t recall any specific reference to transgender people. Klingy must be citing one of those phony-baloney twentieth century versions.

    Another prominent State GOP legislator recently called Klingeyshit Colorado’s very own Fred Phelps. And no, he didn’t mean it as a compliment. Gordo’s also being compared to Douglas Bruce, another Colorado Springs charmer who was appointed to fill a vacant seat in the Legislature and whose behavior was so vile he was un-elected less than a year later. So let’s just say Klingey’s bullshit isn’t going over that great even among right-wingers.

    Here’s the headline for the colorado springs gazette (only slightly to the right of Attila the Hun) ‘Victim’s family refuses Klingenschmitt donation” http://gazette.com/victims-family-refuses-klingenschmitt-donation/article/1548650

    The print version of the paper had : “State GOP lawmakers decry Klingenschmitt comments”

    Apparently blaming god for killing a fetus won’t get you too many friends.
