Gordon Klingenschmitt: NYT's David Kirkpatrick will go to Hell

Several weeks ago, right-wing extremists and conspiracy theorists were infuriated to have their hopes and dreams dashed by a comprehensive report on the Benghazi attack by David Kirkpatrick of the New York Times.

Kirkpatrick's report debunked many of the far-right's favorite talking points, among them being a finding that al-Qaeda did not play any role in the attack.

Now, for the unpardonable offense of injecting facts into the conversation, Gordon Klingenschmitt says Kirkpatrick is going to Hell.

Klingenschmitt began by insisting (falsely) that al-Qaeda is not actually an organization, but is instead a blanket term which refers to any Muslim who refuses to denounce passages in the Quran calling for non-Muslims to be killed.

"If you're a follower of this false prophet [Muhammad] who tells you to go and kill other people the way [Osama] bin Laden did," Klingenschmitt insists, "you are part of al Qaeda because you're following these extremist verses."

After this, Klingenschmitt blamed Kirkpatrick's article on (drum roll) an evil "spirit of lying" inside him, which he claims means he is going to Hell.

"So al-Qaeda and Mr. Kirkpatrick, you will have eternity together to look forward to."

Of course, if a "spirit of lying" can send someone to Hell, Klingenschmitt has greater things to worry about.

It's time to "discern the spirits" inside yourself Gordon, assuming you ever had a soul worth saving to begin with.
