You thought it was bad when a conservative Christian blamed gay people for the problem on Wall Street?
David Popescu, a “perennial independent candidate” from Sudbury, Ontario, was on a panel with his opponents at a local high school the other day. He said the following in regard to questions about abortion and gay marriage:
Near the end of the more than two-hour event, students were invited to ask the candidates questions. As a long line of pupils waited to speak, Popescu told a young female student who asked about stem cell research that, “God would hurt” those who had an abortion.
The crowd jeered and many rose to their feet in protest after Popescu answered another teenager’s question on gay marriage.
During a telephone interview later in the day, Popescu reasserted his view. “A young man asked me what I think of homosexual marriages and I said I think homosexuals should be executed,” he said. “My whole reason for running is the Bible and the Bible couldn’t be more clear on that point.”
At least he’s known as a kook in Canada.
Sarah Palin‘s church thinks you can pray away the gay and she is running on a major national ticket…
