Colorado Republican Legislator: God Let a Pregnant Woman Get Brutally Stabbed Because Abortion is Legal

It looks like Gordon Klingenschmitt‘s colleagues in the Colorado House are finally realizing who the hell this guy is.

The right-wing extremist who constantly says awful things about anyone who’s not his brand of Christian may have jumped his own JesuShark when commenting on the brutal attack of a pregnant woman:

Catholic Bishop Says Being Gay is Like Having Down Syndrome: It’s Not What God Intended

Here’s some unsolicited advice: If you don’t understand a topic, stop pretending to be an expert in it. So if you’re an unmarried virgin, your advice on sex and marriage ought to be taken with a huuuuuge grain of salt.
