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?

Sadly this is what being a free country is all about - he is free to voice his opinion, and to run for government - if he gets in, there's no chance that his 'law' would ever pass - if it does, then it's time to move to Canada!!!

There is a river of rage that runs through all those Tea-Partyers, and they have no room in their worldviews for logic, reason or tolerance. They just know that things suck right now, and instead of looking for real, actual solutions, they follow their knee-jerk reaction to blame anyone who doesn't conform to what they think the world needs to look like, i.e., people who aren't just like themselves.

He's free to say that if he wants to, but he's not part of *my* Tea Party. The confusing thing about any real grassroots movement is that there's no regulation of who may want to be part of it, whether they're drunk or stoned or deliberately trying to embarrass the others. Like the Westboro Baptists saying they're Christians, or like N.A.M.B.L.A....

That will not happen in America unless we let Sharia Law take over in places. That is the real danger.

Well, now that we see all the attention that Donald Trump is getting for his bizarre opinions, I suppose it's more understandable. Thank goodness this will not actually happen!
