Whether or not Texas Representative Ron Paul is homophobic or racists is not really at issue, but his decision to not only apparently let others write horrific things in his name, but to also accept the endorsement of Reverend Phil Kayser and then boast about those on his campaign website. Things got worse when Paul quietly scrubbed the page.
Kayser is the pastor of the Dominion Covenant Church in Omaha, Nebraska, and he wrote in “Is The Death Penalty Just?” back in 2009 “This would have a tendency of driving homosexuals back into their closets. I think I have demonstrated how even capital punishment can be restorative.”
So, basically, he supports executing lesbians and gays.
On the show, Schultz and guest Mike Rogers, managing director of RawStory.com, blasted Paul for the move.
Schultz said Kayser made “extremists look tame by comparison.”
Rogers argued that the Texas Representative wants “to free up states to be able to do things like this reverend wants,” including “basically make being gay illegal if [Texas] wanted to.”
“I think he’s feeding the fire and knows what he’s doing with that,” Rogers added.
