One of Colorado's new anti-LGBT lawmakers was too out there for even me to cover (And I cover *everybody*)

Screen Shot 2014-11-05 At 7.34.28 PmI have a list of anti-LGBT activists who are too extreme and fringe to write about. I used to write about most of them, but at some point I decided to focus in on only those who actually have some sort of impact in some way. Barring some unexpectedly newsworthy development, I tend to just ignore them and their nonsense.

Gordon "Dr. Chaps" Klingenschmitt is one such individual. I haven't mentioned him on this site since November of 2012 because he and his web videos are just that ludicrous. But in a truly remarkable turn of events, this man, who has been downright Westboro Baptist-ian in his language (he believes gay people have a "demon" that must be "cast out") was actually elected to the legislature of the state of Colorado. For real. Right Wing Watch has the dirty details:

Meet 'Dr. Chaps' Gordon Klingenschmitt: Colorado's New Anti-Gay, Demon Hunting State Legislator [RWW]

Klingenschmitt ran and won as a Republican. Because I know you were on the fence in your wondering.

Although I'm really not sure why I'm surprised. Back when she was a state lawmaker, Michele Bachmann declared homosexuality to be "part of Satan," and she eventually made it high enough to run for President. Of the United States. I mean, sure, Klingenschmitt has gone even further in his words. But if you both believe there is some sort of demonic spirit living inside of certain kinds of human beings, is there really that much difference?
