GOOD NEWS! GOP candidate from Iowa doesn’t think we should kill gay people!

Hey GOP peeps from Iowa, way to go on choosing Jeremy Walters as your candidate for House of Representatives! He’s a real winner.

I mean, seriously, he uses Facebook! So he must be AWFUL AWESOME.

And too, he doesn’t think we should kill gay people! That’s why you chose him, right? Because he so lovable… and merciful… and think AIDS is a punishment from God against gay people…

But he doesn’t think we should kill them! Praise the Lord…. Yeah, according to his Facebook status, he thinks God does that on our behalf… praise the what?!

Looks like Jeremy’s got Jason’s vote.

Jeremy’s grammar rocks!

Now Jeremy did issue an apology…

I am not against people having a gay lifestyle, and the statements made on Facebook have been taken the wrong way. The statement regarding gay homosexuality was not meant to be offensive and I deeply appologize.

As far as the quote from Bible; I was replying to someone elses post. It should have been posted as a comment on their page, not my Facebook wall. I appologize for the mistake and if this statement offened anyone. Both postings have been removed and these comments do not pertain to my campaign or the Republican Party of Iowa. My passion is to listen and learn from the people so I can represent them at the statehouse. Everyone makes mistakes, please forgive me. (VIA)

His Facebook status doesn’t pertain to his campaign. Hmm. But Jeremy, how about your spelling? Does that pertain to your campaign?

I get that our representatives can, theoretically, be anybody who’s a citizen of the United States…

…but I honestly prefer them educated. Beyond spelling, let’s discuss these useful devices in English grammar collectively called punctuation.

Complete sentences? We haz em.

I have two issues.

First is that his “statement regarding gay homosexuality” is exclusive. What about straight homosexuality? If he’s going to pick and choose between types of gay, then he are a fool.

Also in his statement about “what Bible say,” Jer is careful to use ALL CAPS and quotes when writing the word “GAY.” His latter statement of apology is not consistent in this, which leaves loopholes. Slick politician that he is, he may not believe that “gay homosexuals” should be put to death but those who are “GAY” (perhaps meaning those who are hella-gay) are still left defenseless under Jeremy’s leadership.

Iowa is one of the few states to have legalized same sex marriage. With views and poor grammar like that, he has no chance of winning any election. I say we encourage more people like this to run…they would have no chance of being elected.

If he can’t even figure out how to correctly use Facebook, he can’t be taken seriously. :P

Lord have mercy……I would love to write a letter to Mr. Walters with my concerns. Unfortunately, as a New Yorker, I have my own worries about a candidate for governor……

how is he not against the gay lifestyle with those comments? It doesn’t even make sense – if he wasn’t against the gay lifestyle he wouldn’t be bothered so much as to post continually about it.

As an Iowan I feel like I should say something to defend my state and disassociate myself with the esteemed mugshot-esque candidate for office. Let’s just say that he has the same chance of winning as Basil Marceaux.

Oh it’s okay! This is what his website says (under “Issues #1″ in a blue gradient box):

The State Government should not have the right to tell us where or when we can or can’t do something like.

So even if he thinks GAY or homosexual gay or “GAY” or those Fools are an abomination, then at least he doesn’t think the State Government should have the right to tell them what they can or can’t do.

Right guys? That’s how it works?

Hmm. Well, at least he has a picture with Chuck Norris! That makes everything good.

I would like to take up a collection to buy some question marks for Mr. Walters. He apparently has already purchased a few vowels. I doubt we can afford a clue big enough for him, though.

You know, you don’t have to be smart in order to look smart by just writing with proper grammar. But this guy could be a genius, and he looks like a complete halfwit. Seriously, he should hire someone to proof his Facebook posts.
