“I think we would be totally in the right to do it,” Oklahoma state house candidate Scott Esk wrote on Facebook last summer, when he stated that gay people are “worthy of death” and should be stoned, claiming that violence against gays “is in the old testament under a law that came directly from God.”

Esk’s comments originated as a Facebook commentary responding to Pope Francis’ statement about judging gay priests, saying “who am I to judge.”  A commenter asked “So just to be clear, you think we should execute homosexuals (presumably by stoning)?”  Esk’s answer, of course, was yes.


“I think we would be totally in the right to do it,” he wrote. “That goes against some parts of libertarianism, I realize, and I’m largely libertarian, but ignoring as a nation things that are worthy of death is very remiss.”

He rationalized his ignorance by claiming that God would punish the United States for being accepting and tolerant of gay people:  “If men wink at such perversions, God may have no choice than to judge such nations with calamities.”

However, it seems the United States has already been stricken with calamity:  Esk and others like him, who, when placed in a position of power, have wherewithal that has afforded genocides and holocausts to take place.

Meanwhile, in spite of his murderous ideations, Esk describes himself as “100% pro life” on his campaign website (unless you’re gay), and says “I look forward to applying Biblical principles to Oklahoma law.”

Except, of course, the principles where Jesus talks about loving everyone, and “Thou shall not kill.”
