A Michigan Republican National Committee (RNC) candidate wants gays purged from the Republican Party.

Mary Helen Sears is campaigning to pick up the seat vacated by Michigan RNC Co-Chair Terri Lynn Land, who is currently running for the U.S. Senate. Land resigned from the post last month in protest of anti-gay remarks made by its co-chair, Dave Agema.

“Marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman,” Sears, vice chair of the 1st Congressional District Republicans, wrote in a March post titled End of the GOP? “It is a reflection of God and his Church. The promise that when this horror show we call life is over, we will once again be reunited with the God of this Universe. The joining of two men or two women is a perversion of this Covenant and a direct affront to God. Satan uses homosexuality to attack the living space of the Holy Spirit, which is the body of the person.”

Sears quotes Leviticus 20:13: “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”

“How then can we as Christians stay in a party that adopts Homosexuality into the fabric of the tent. I say we cannot. Homosexuals make up less than one percent of the total population. They must prey on our children to increase their numbers. Why then, would we, as a party, entertain this perversion? We as a party should be purging this perversion and send them to a party with a much bigger tent.”

“If the GOP continues down this trend and stand for perversions and the daily social fad, then I must travel a more suitable road. The GOP will be truly dead and Satan will have had his day,” she concluded.

In response, Darren Littel, communications director for the Michigan Republican Party, told The Huffington Post that while the GOP remains opposed to marriage equality, “we also believe that all people should be treated with dignity and respect and these comments clearly don't reflect those principles.”
