Yesterday, Religious Right activist Steve Crampton announced that he is seeking a seat on the Mississippi Supreme Court and, given that he has worked for two anti-gay hate groups — the American Family Association and Liberty Counsel — it is no surprise that he is an anti-gay extremist.
Back when he worked for Liberty Counsel, Crampton was a frequent co-host of the organization’s “Faith and Freedom” radio program, where he once shared his view that “the life of the average homosexual is not controlled by reason” but is rather driven by a perverted lust and passion that has “overwhelmed them.”
He also warned before the Supreme Court struck down key parts of the Defense of Marriage Act that such a decision would mean that gays “will eradicate us and they will not stop until the homosexual totalitarian view of the world is forcefully imposed on every American.”
And he declared that gay rights activists “abhor freedom” and “will basically stop at almost nothing in order to accomplish their goals.”
He even asserted that gay rights activism is “destroying America” and “the most totalitarian kind of philosophy that is afoot in America today.”
And he once insisted that “society itself is on the verge of total collapse if we give up what marriage really means.”
