Gordon Klingenschmitt: "I'm running to oppose a theocracy"

Even if you haven't been reading the National Political Rebuttal column for more than a week, you already know by that title that this is going to be a doozy.

Gordon Klingenschmitt, best known for his frequent fraudulent accusations and insistence that everything can be blamed on demonic spirits, is presently trying to run for State Senate in Colorado.

Recently, Klingenschmitt posted a video to his campaign website announcing the reason he is running: "to oppose a theocracy."

Yes, you are reading that correctly. Klingenschmitt, the man who just last week said people not going to Heaven do not deserve equal protection and treatment from the government, is accusing Democrats of trying to establish a theocracy.

"I'm running to oppose a theocracy," Klingenschmitt said. "The Democrats are the ones pushing a theocracy on us."

Yet even in this very video, Klingenschmitt cannot prevent his own theocratic ambitions from manifesting.

Klingenschmitt once again complains that the state's civil unions bill does not have a religious exemption, and for this reason asks voters to "send at least one person to the state legislature who is an ordained minister," vowing that he would defend religious liberties of Christians.

It is not worth explaining to Klingenschmitt that treating all non-Christians as second class citizens exactly as he proposed would be the very definition of theocracy. That's because he already knows this, just as he knows that gays do not want to force Christians to commit sodomy, that Al Franken does not want pedophilia to be required in public schools, that gay marriage does not cause inflation, and that Obamacare does not cause cancer.

Gordon Klingenschmitt is a pathological liar of the foulest kind, and theocracy in America would be his wildest dream come true.
