Quote# 59817

February 24, 2009, New York, NY – The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) today urged media to turn a spotlight on anti-gay remarks made by Colorado State Senator Scott Renfroe on February 23, 2009, during a Senate debate over a bill that would allow gay and lesbian state employees to share health benefits with their partners.

According to The Denver Post, Renfroe stated that "homosexuality is seen as a violation of this natural creative order, and it is an offense to God." He continued ". . . When we create laws that go against what biblically we are supposed to stand for, I think we are allowing to go forward a sin that should not be treated by government as something that is legal. We are taking sins and making them legally OK."

Apparently the US constitution doesn't apply to everybody.

Cool. Then close down every McDonald's, every 7-11, and every cheap clothing store in Colorado. And shoot anyone who drives a car with a combustion engine on a Sunday.

Why would I be surprised by the empty bellows of a bigoted, religiously brain addled, American, Republican politician? One problem with democracy is that all too often we land up being governed by the lowest common denominator.

OK! Obama is the welcome exception.

That's what secularism is.

(Why are there no Christian theocracies we can advise these people to move to?)

People like Mr. Renfroe don't belong holding positions in our government.

-edit- @ dg - They're trying to turn America into one so they don't have to move anywhere.

Oh, for fucks sake.

There's Saudi Arabia. It's close enough, and fundies can at least go there knowing they'll get the added bonus of being able to fap to their persecution.

"We are taking sins and making them legally OK."

Yes, you are! That's the point of religious freedom! You don't have to enforce laws that you believe on people who don't believe in them. If you're right, we'll be judged in the afterlife, so stop worrying!

2/27/2009 8:55:13 AM


w00t for people that, although in the government, don't know jack shit about what the government stands for! yay!

Sharia law for Colorado!

2/27/2009 9:25:49 AM


Not quite getting that whole seperation of church and state thing is he?

2/27/2009 9:30:18 AM


good thing for us making laws based on religion is unconstitutional

2/27/2009 9:36:57 AM


Making laws based on a book of magic? *sniggers*

2/27/2009 9:44:26 AM

Then you'd better get busy passing all of Leviticus into law.......and then don't blame us when you get the death penalty for cheating on your wife.

Polyester goes against the creative natural order, why aren't they complaining about that too?

2/27/2009 10:06:05 AM


fuck you and your stupid religious bullshit

The Lazy One

It sounds like Renfroe here needs to go to Saudi Arabia, since he sounds like he's trying to make a theocracy. I think he'd be happier there...

#972862: Remember, these are people who think Allah is a seven-headed dragon, or a moon god, or Satan, or any of the other bullcrap we've seen on this site.

...Somewhere in Africa, maybe? There are a bunch of countries in that area that might actually benefit from it.

When you prove god exists, we'll ask him what he thinks. Until then, we're not really interested in what your imaginary friend has to say.

2/27/2009 11:23:30 AM

And how do we go about getting this ass thrown out of office???

2/27/2009 11:26:58 AM


This is why I want to go to England. Whilst there will always be stupid politicians, only in America can you find some asshole who bases every decision on his buybull

2/27/2009 11:59:32 AM

the old firm

"We are taking sins and making them legally OK."" - And about time, you idiot!

2/27/2009 12:00:50 PM


How can it be a violation of the natural order if it occurs naturally? WTF? Do these bozos listen to themselves?

2/27/2009 12:46:44 PM

Mister Spak

"We are taking sins and making them legally OK."

Then we're going to outlaw pork, right?
