For example. In Iowa, there is a local
“The Holy Bible says if your ‘GAY’ homosexual they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. This tells me a lot so should we kill them NO. They Need to ask God to forgive them of their sins and mean it turn away from it. They also need to know that when it says that their blood shall be upon them that tells me it is AIDS. That how I feel.”
“homosexual “GAY” is not of God!!!!!!”
Now remember, the guy is running for office. He's trying to get people to vote for him. Could you vote for him after reading that? Of course not, his spelling and grammar are atrocious. Well that and he's announced that AIDS is God's punishment for being a Gay Homosexual. I'm not sure what a Gay Homosexual is, but I think it's a gay guy that sleeps with women. Anyway, being a Christian, he probably thought this over and decided, all on his own with no input from anyone sane, to apologize the next day. To wit;
I am not against people having a gay lifestyle, and the statements made on Facebook have been taken the wrong way. The statement regarding gay homosexuality was not meant to be offensive and I deeply appologize.
As far as the quote from Bible; I was replying to someone elses post. It should have been posted as a comment on their page, not my Facebook wall. I appologize for the mistake and if this statement offened anyone. Both postings have been removed and these comments do not pertain to my campaign or the Republican Party of Iowa. My passion is to listen and learn from the people so I can represent them at the statehouse. Everyone makes mistakes, please forgive me.
See? When you read it the first time, you obviously took it the wrong way. When he said AIDS is God's punishment and gays need to turn into normal people he meant it in the kindest way possible, not in the "Die Fag Die" way some of you took it. He didn't say the statement was, I don't know, bigoted, idiotic, and ignorant, just that it could be construed to be slightly unsettling. But at least the voters know that Jeremy Walters (R-Des Moines) is on good speaking terms with God (R-Heaven).
This is just one of the more recent examples of the crap we have to listen to day in and day out. Personally, it doesn't bother me as much as it used to. But in a few years I'm going to have to explain imbeciles like this to my daughter. Eventually she'll be old enough to see it for what it is, but I'm wondering, gay parents, how have you addressed this subject with your little darlings? I'd like to hear what you have to say on the subject, or what you would say. And straight people, please chime in as well. Your kids may not be as inclined to notice this trash as those raised by a same sex couple may be, but they will hear it. What are your thoughts on it as well?
