Anti-Gay Legislators Hoist by Own Petards in MN
Out there in the home state of two potential Republican contenders, Republican legislators screwed up their plan to put on the November ballot a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.
On the day the vote was scheduled, the minister they’d invited to give the invocation turned out to be a raving freakazoid bigot who supports the execution (yes, execution) of gays. In his prayer, he implied that Obama was not a Christian — was actually some sort of anti-Christian — and threw the House into an uproar. The Speaker, a Republican, actually had to apologize on the floor of the House. No more votes were held.
The Republican legislator who had invited this nutcase claimed not to have realized how far out he was.
Michele Bachmann has fundraised for this guy’s ministry and is scheduled to share a platform with him at a Tea Party (“fiscal responsibility”) event in September.
