Rep. Steve King Gloats Because Gay People in the Media Will Never Get to Heaven

Rep. Steve King just can’t stop talking these days.  Just this week, the Iowa Congressman made news after flapping his gums about how immigrants are bringing Ebola and beheadings into America and turning it into a “third-world country.”

He also found time to threaten to shut down the government if Obama doesn’t see things his way about immigratin.

Then, somewhere between Obama bashing and campaigning with Donald Trump, the GOPer also sat down to talk to a local Iowa paper, where he promptly suggested gay people have no chance of getting to heaven like him.

“I’ll just say that what was a sin 2,000 years ago is a sin today, and people that were condemned to hell 2,000 years ago, I don’t expect to meet them should I make it to heaven,” he told Douglas Burns of the Jefferson Herald. “So let’s stick with that principle.”

Then after getting flak for his statement, he said the media made it all up, although he rather confusingly stood by his statement anyhow.

“What I said was it’s between them and God. And I said what was a sin 2,000 years ago is a sin today. That was what I said. And I stand on what I said, and they’ve manufactured this,” he insisted.

He then said in addition to those gays he never said won’t make it to heaven (but still thinks they won’t), those liberal medial liars who manufacture fake statements probably won’t share an afterlife with him either.

“So maybe I won’t meet the people who distort the truth in the next life,” he said, poking at the media, “And I’m going to do my best to get to Heaven.”

By the way, while Donald Trump was out campaigning with King this week in Iowa, he endorsed the incumbent candidate and called King the “smart person with really the right views on almost everything.”
