Republican Candidate: ‘Openly Homosexual’ Democrats Will ‘Join ISIS, Behead Christians’

A Republican candidate running for a seat on the Colorado legislature is campaigning on the threat that Democrats like openly gay Congressman Jared Polis are soon going to “join ISIS in beheading Christians.”

Over the weekend, Republican nominee Gordon Klingenschmitt sent an email to supporters, writing, “The openly homosexual Congressman Jared Polis (D-CO) introduced a revised bill to force Christian employers and business owners to hire and promote homosexuals with ZERO RELIGIOUS EXEMPTIONS for Christians who want to opt out.”

He continued, writing that “Polis ‘wants sexual orientation and gender identity treated the same way as race, religion, sex, and national origin, when it comes to employment protections’ claims the Advocate, under the headline ‘Polis trims ENDA’s religious exemption’. Dr. Chaps’ comment: The open persecution of Christians is underway. Democrats like Polis want to bankrupt Christians who refuse to worship and endorse his sodomy. Next he’ll join ISIS in beheading Christians, but not just in Syria, right here in America.”

On Monday, Klingenschmitt was forced to “apologize” for his comments but claims liberals simply don’t have a sense of humor.

“This weekend I sent out an email alert to my constituents in which I used hyperbole,” he said in a YouTube video on Monday. “You know what hyperbole is. It’s a literary device where you exaggerate to make a point. Well, apparently some Democrats do not have a sense of humor and they were offended by some of the things I said using hyperbole this weekend.”
