Stephen Pidgeon is a candidate for the post of attorney general in Washington — a Republican, of course — who is making his anti-gay bigotry the centerpiece of his campaign. Appearing on the James Dobson radio show, he offered up this bizarre bit of “reasoning”:
What you have, Dr. Dobson, is you have the oligarchy impressing its will upon the people. This is a form of tyranny, if you will, that even Thomas Jefferson warned us about, saying that when the court imposes its will on the public it’s an oligarchy, it’s a form of totalitarianism, where a few select people believe that their will should be imposed on the rest of us. It’s unconstitutional and more importantly it violates the fundamental freedoms of what it means to be an American to have a couple of select judges tell an entire state, ‘you can’t determine for yourself whether or not you’re going to be righteous in the sight of God or not.’
Unsurprisingly, Pidgeon is also a birther.
