Christian conservative and Colorado House hopeful Gordon “Dr. Chaps” Klingenschmitt on Tuesday reacted to gay and lesbian couples getting marriage licenses in three Colorado counties.

On his web show, Pray in Jesus Name Project, Klingenschmitt, a Republican, reminded the clerks that homosexuality carries a “penalty” that amounts to “spiritual death.”

“They say, 'Oh, it's all about love.' No, it's about lust, it's about selfishness,” Klingenschmitt said. “They don't care about the other person, they want self-gratification for themselves, contrary to their own nature, contrary to what God designed for them. And they receive in themselves the penalty for that error.”

“The penalty for that sin is not just STDS or some biological curse, not just AIDS, but they receive into themselves the demonic spirit that rules their hearts, and with that comes ultimately the consequence of spiritual death.”

He added that he's just delivering God's message then he tells gay men and lesbians that they're “going to hell.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
