According to The New Civil Rights Movement, a conservative Christian Tea Party Republican candidate running for the Oklahoma House of Representatives says he is OK with stoning gays to death. Scott Esk reportedly said in a Facebook conversation, “I think we would be totally in the right” to stone gay people to death. He also quoted the bible — including Leviticus 20:13 — and added, “ignoring as a nation things that are worthy of death is very remiss.”

In a Facebook conversation, Esk insisted that stoning “was done under the Old Testament, a law that came directly from God.”

 

Then he added: “I have no plans to reinstitute that in Oklahoma law. I do have some very huge moral misgivings about those kinds of sins.”

In another Facebook conversation, Esk said, “I never said I would author legislation to put homosexuals to death, but I didn’t have a problem with it.”
