Christian conservative and Colorado
House hopeful Gordon “Dr. Chaps” Klingenschmitt on Wednesday
reacted to an appeals court's recent ruling upholding New Jersey's
ban on 'ex-gay' therapy to minors.
So-called conversion therapy attempts
to alter a teen's sexual orientation from gay to straight.
New Jersey lawmakers last year approved
the law that prohibits such therapies to minors.
On his Pray in Jesus Name web
program, Klingenschmitt told viewers that Satan used the lawmakers to
silence the prophets of God.
“There is a demonic spirit of
persecution that is in some politicians,” he
said. “The Devil is influencing them to persecute Christians
and they're using the courts to do it, they're using these laws to do
it. They want to silence the prophets!”
“This court is commanding
psychologists, if you prophesy, if you quote the Bible, you're going
to lose your license. You know what? They're the ones who are
wrong. And you're the ones who are right, if you're trying to help a
teen get free of their sin,” he added.
