Demons have possessed advertising executives to make them push the gay lifestyle – at least if you believe a Colorado Republican.
Gordon Klingenschmitt, a disgraced former Navy chaplain and elected member of the Colorado House of Representatives for the 15th district, made the claims on his Pray In Jesus Name’ program.
In the broadcast, he encourages viewers to join the Religious Rights boycott of jewelry retailer Zales.
The jeweler recently featured a lesbian couple in their advertising campaign.
According to the former military chaplain, the advertising executives behind this campaign are possessed by demons, driving them to promote an ‘ungodly’ thing and attack and redefine ‘the institution of marriage’ as part of the ‘leftist agenda’.
‘They are deceivers fooling the American public and we need to expose that as wrong,’ he says.
‘The Bible says this in Ephesians chapter five. I’m just doing my job, right?
‘The Bible tells me to “have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them”.’
Exposing evil, Klingenschmitt says, is the purpose of his program, and he and his audience also ‘discern the demonic spirit and pray the scriptures in Jesus’ name.’
In the past, Klingenschmitt has said gay activists wanted to steal people’s souls and also claimed gay people ‘should be discriminated against’.
One of his most outrageous claims, however, that Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell should never have been repealed.
At the time, Klingenschmitt quoted Pentecostal Chaplain John Kauffman, who claimed gay soldiers couldn’t serve effectively in war zones because they were ‘taking breaks on the combat field to change diapers, all because their treacherous sin causes them to lose control of their bowels.’
Klingenschmitt became a Religious Rights activist after he was court-martialed by the Navy for repeatedly violating rules prohibiting him from wearing his uniform while attending political events.
