WA school teacher and state House candidate Mary Ruth Edwards lends approval to shocking extremism

by Jeremy Hooper

In the first part of the program, Ms. Edwards, a public school teacher in Washington's Prosser School District and holder of the GOP nomination for State Rep. in Washington state's 16th district, rails against her opponents support for LGBT rights and makes it clear her plan to do the opposite. But just click play on the following cued-up clip and listen to the pure, naked, dangerous, Paul Cameron–filled extremism to which Ms. Edwards lends her credence and approval (tacit and expressed):

Fetishizing past punishments for homosexuality? Using junk science to say that gays can and should "change"? Sodom and Gomorrah and cautionary tale? And all of this discussed as if it were a measured bout of punditry fit for a 21st century political campaign?

Yikes. District parents and voters alike, you should know about this one.
