Religious Right activist and Colorado state Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt claims that “child molesting” is “a favorite ‘recruiting’ tool of adult homosexuals” and warns that allowing openly gay men to be Boy Scout troop leaders will “lead to child abuse.” These gay child molesters, he adds, should be drowned.
So it comes as no surprise at all, then, to learn this:
A few weeks before Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt found himself in hot water for saying Jesus said child molesters should be drowned, he interviewed a man on his show who has been convicted twice of sexual assault on a child and called him a “new friend.”
David Dorty, who is active in El Paso County politics and is with the American Conservatives of Color, appeared on Klingenschmittt’s video ministry Pray in Jesus’ Name (PIJN) News on July 16.
Dorty, as The Gazette reported in March, has twice been convicted of sexually assaulting a child, once by a person in a position of trust.
Dorty, and those who stand beside him, say he has been reformed through the help of God.
Klingenschmitt made no distinction between redeemed and unredeemed child molesters when he quoted a bible verse about causing children to sin.
