Jeremy Walters, the Republican hoping to unseat Rep. Kevin McCarthy in Iowa, is very sorry he spent so many words on Facebook quoting the Bible. Also, for using those quotes to attack gays.
After posting these things:
“I am not against people having a gay lifestyle, and the statements made on Facebook have been taken the wrong way,” says Waters in a statement. “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.”
So there you have it: Waters doesn’t mind your “lifestyle”; everyone misinterpreted what he was saying; and he doesn’t know how to use Facebook all that well, so he’s sorry for that etiquette “mistake.” Also, he initially said he wouldn’t remove the postings, but has since deleted him. Now what does the Bible say about lying again?
