Democrat for Senate: Kill practicing gays

It sounds like a practical joke, doesn't it? But the news come from WND, and that place is not known for its particular love for gays.

A Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate in Ohio wants to make homosexual behavior a capital crime punishable by the death penalty.

Merrill Keiser Jr. is a trucker with no political experience, but he hopes to beat fellow Democrat Rep. Brown in the May primary. The winner will try to unseat Republican incumbent Sen. Mike DeWine, assuming he wins the GOP primary.

Keiser told the Register the United States should make conversion to Christianity part of the war on terror to teach Muslims the error of their choice in religion.

"The teaching of evolution works against the liberties we have in the United States," he told the paper. If a person believe in evolution, he or she "has no rights," he's quoted saying.

Even for a card-carrying dinosaur it is a bit over the top, wouldn't you agree. It is rather a more simple primordial life form we are discussing here.

Some people have an idea that might have explained this phenomenon.

Liberal blogger Deborah White was less than thrilled with Keiser's candidacy and the media's response to it.

"What if this hate-filled moron called for the execution of all blacks or all Jews?" she asked. "Would the public outcry be similarly subdued? Would the press still report it as a cute curiosity or merely an alternative viewpoint? Where is moral outrage in 2006?"

White speculated Keiser was planted by the GOP.

"He must be a Republican plant," she wrote. "Please ... someone tell me I'm correct."

But, Deborah, even for a Republican the guy is too much, I am sure.

I would tell him to go and fuck himself, but it may lead him to homosexuality, which he so hates...
