Christian conservative and Colorado House hopeful Gordon “Dr. Chaps” Klingenschmitt has declared endorsing homosexuality to be “the ultimate hate speech.”

On his web show, Pray in Jesus Name Project, Klingenschmitt came to the defense of Jack Phillips, the Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple.

“Phillips, God bless him, I discern the Holy Spirit of God upon him, because he is listening to the voice of God who is saying, 'Do not bow your knee to a false god,'” Klingenschmitt told his viewers. “Don't endorse their sin, because ultimately that is harmful to [the gay couple]. And Jack Phillips, because he's a man of love, because he's a man of peace, he wants to show compassion, even to the sinner.”

“And by endorsing their sin, he would not be showing compassion to them, he would be showing cruelty. So, the ultimate hate speech is to endorse homosexuality, because you give them the impression that it's okay and that deceives them and ultimately trips them into Hell.” (The video is embedded on this page.
