GOP candidate wants to ban transgender people from public bathrooms

GOP candidate wants to ban transgender people from public bathrooms July 22, 2014

Biblical morality? Transgender people should be prohibited from using public bathrooms according to Gordon “Dr. Chaps” Klingenschmitt, the Republican nominee for House District 15 in the Colorado House of Representatives.

The leading Christian conservative and Tea Party darling argues that because the Bible (Deuteronomy 23) prohibits transgender people from entering a church, they should be prohibited from using gender appropriate public bathrooms as well.

On his “Pray In Jesus Name” program yesterday, Klingenschmitt discussed a lawsuit filed against Hobby Lobby by a transgender female employee who claims that she was denied access to the women’s restroom facilities.  Klingenschmitt said:

“The Scriptures say in Deuteronomy 23 that he that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord. And if they can’t enter the congregation of the Lord, they certainly shouldn’t be allowed to enter the ladies bathroom.”

Klingenschmitt, a former Navy Chaplain, is no stranger to controversy. The homophobic, demon obsessed, Christian conservative previously claimed that President Obama is possessed by demonic spirits; and that regardless of what the courts on earth rule, Jesus will eventually rule against gay marriage and toss all gays into Hell

Most recently, the GOP candidate advocated exorcism for atheists: Wanting everyone to be “free to enjoy the worship of Jesus Christ,” the Republican nominee argued atheists should face exorcism in order to feel more comfortable in church.
