Scott Esk is running for House District 91 state representative.
On his website, he says he is a conservative who wants to apply biblical principles to Oklahoma law.
But some are saying his views are extreme.
But? What do you mean but? Anybody who wants to apply biblical principles to any kind of law is extreme by definition.
Morris said, “This guy posted on Facebook that homosexuals should be stoned to death. My first response was you’re nuts, nobody would be stupid enough to do that.”
Morris says he found those postings from last summer on Facebook.
At the time, Esk had commented on a story about the pope saying “Who am I to judge?” on homosexuality.
Esk posted some old testament scripture that referred to homosexuality being punished.
Someone asked – “So just to be clear, you think we should execute homosexuals (presumably by stoning)?”
Esk responds – “I think we would be totally in the right to do it. 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.”
Worthy of death. That’s biblical principles for you.
