What? Stoning Homosexuals to Death in America?
There is someone running for elective office in this country (Tea Party candidate Scott Esk from Oklahoma) who advocates stoning homosexuals to death. The problem with his viewpoint from his own (seriously warped) perspective is it conflicts with his libertarian streak. So his compromise is cities and states should be free to trample the rights of homosexuals by ordering them killed for their mere existence. People can choose to live in such places or not, he claims.
What is happening to our country that a man like Esk can last in the political area for a minute longer than it takes for him to open his mouth and spout this discriminatory hate? What happened to tolerance, acceptance, the idea that our country is a melting pot for people of all different stripes? When is the Tea Party going to publicly state the obvious about this guy and distance themselves from his hate campaign?
