Gordon “Dr. Chaps” Klingenschmitt, a Religious Right activist and Republican member of the Colorado House of Representatives, predicted on his “Pray In Jesus Name” program on Saturday that a vote to repeal Houston’s nondiscrimination ordinance next week will succeed because the people who say they are “undecided” in polls are actually “against sharing public bathrooms with crossdressing men but they’re afraid to tell the pollsters.”
Latching on to the Right’s favorite transphobic angle in fighting antidiscrimination measures, Klingenschmitt claimed that the ordinance allows transgender women to “expose themselves to little girls” in restrooms and concluded that transgender people are possessed by “a demonic spirit.”
“God is against you, Mayor Annise Parker,” he declared after predicting that “the lesbian mayor will eventually have egg on her face.”
“Father, save the children from the perverts in Houston,” he prayed.
