Just last week, we brought to you a tale of macabre courtesy of Colorado state representative (and former military chaplain) Gordon Klingenschmitt, who terrorized the world with his giddily gruesome views that gay Boy Scouts leaders will be “hung around his neck… drowned in the depths of the sea.”

“If your boy is in one of these organizations,” he urged, “you need to get him out of there. Because what they’re going to do is promote homosexual men to mentoring and camping with your boys in the woods. And it will lead to child abuse… The children are in danger. It’s not about the sexual pleasure of the adults.”
Which is why it’s deeply perplexing, if not deeply surprising, that Right Wing Watch has now revealed Klingenschmitt recently featured a certain David Dorty on his video ministry Pray In Jesus’ Name News on July 16; an El Paso politician who has been twice convicted of sexual child abuse, once by a person in a position of trust.

It seems the difference is that Dorty and his posse assure that he’s been “reformed” with a little help from his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Klingenschmitt, who called Dorty a “new friend” during the segment, is now beginning to backtrack as this story makes the rounds. The Gazette reports that he’s now insisting he wasn’t aware of Dorty’s prior convictions at all.
“Last month we met Mr. Dorty for the first time at the Western Conservative Summit and interviewed him on our show,” he told the paper, “but of course he did not tell us about his past.” He said if provided with evidence of Dorty’s convictions — which put the man behind bars for nearly 14 years — he’ll remove the segment from his news archives.
Well, since Klingenschmitt clearly doesn’t know the subtle nuances of navigating Google, we’ve done a bit of legwork for him and tracked down Dorty’s Registered Sex Offender page.
“What it says to me is that Klingenschmitt’s hypocrisy knows no bounds,” said Amy Runyon-Harms, executive director of Progress New Colorado. “And I also find it stunning that the Republican leadership within his party hasn’t yet reprimanded him.”

me thinks the lady doest protest too much!
Sigh……still haven’t molested a child in 58 years…….am I a “bad” gay??
How about the straight people who molest children (that happens far more often BTW). Are we to drown them also? Blithering IDIOT.
Birds of a feather…
All will be revealed in time, I’m sure.
Yes. He seems to fine with having actual child molesters around but damn he looks like one himself. Like right out of Hollywood casting.
Grant, I’m stunned! 58? Only 3 years older than me and I haven’t molested either. Is there a support group?
Another white, right-wing monster. When will they just get help and stop plaguing the lives of everyone else?
This so called minister needs hung from the neck until dead! All bigots need a bullet right between their eyes!
Well, well, ferret face got his name in the news again?
Those who continue to claim that homosexuals are also pedophiles do not understand the distinction. In fact, most pedophiles are heterosexual. While the Roman Catholic priesthood seems to excel in having pedophile priests who prey on young boys, there is the occasional priest who molests young girls. I was absolutely delighted when my old scoutmaster called to say he was in town on business and invited me and my wife to dinner. My wife, sensing we would talk about things from long ago, declined. But I did join him. I was in my late 20s and he was in his early 50s. And I was more than pleased when he invited me to his hotel room following dinner for a liqueur. And more than delighted when he seduced me. Since my troop was a church-sponsored one, I had known this man through church, his wife and his 3 children, who were younger than I. After our pleasurable romp, I asked him why he didn’t make a move on me when I was in his troop. He laughed lightly and said, “Sorry, but I am not interested in little boys! I did think you might grow into someone who would appeal.” He went on to say that he was happily married and delighted in his children and his entire family life. The gay side of him would never dominate. But then, this was also at a time when few came out and many married chaps remained closeted for eons. This alleged minister is a phony. His words are designed to strike fear into the unwitting, FOX news audience member.
It’s 2015 and anyone who failed to do their internet easy background checking on a prospective employee, volunteer or professionally related friend is simply an ignorant fool. Maybe Klingenschmitt was hoping Dorty would introduce him to some of his little friends. You’d think that someone in Klingenschmitt’s position would be smarter than he is but. I guess the foolishness of his own words has proven that not to be the case.
@russellhm: and you were married and closeted too one would suspect since you referenced your wife not wanting to attend the dinner with your former scout master.
Gordon is probably a pedophile himself
Gordon Klingenschitt sounds like a homophobic to me, one who hates himself for being being attracted to men. Maybe he should try a sex change so he can pretend to be a she, change the name to Gordonia and that way she can date guys! :>)
What about heterosexuals molesting children. What is their punishment? Did he say? Moreover is his stance the Oxymoron?

Does anyone else see a big old FISTING BOTTOM?
So is Fuckenschmitt saying that if – let’s just say – he were gay, if he were left in the woods with all those boy scouts, that he might indulge in such sordid debauchery? Perhaps he’s just showing his own dirty laundry.
I guess it’s better to be friendly with a child molester than a gay person.
Birds of a feather!!!!
Queerty is nothing more than a stupid ass rag! Do you jerk off saying “Right Wing”? It’s in every fucking article. Why don’t you people get REAL JOBS!
@dwbyers1960: Are you stupid? Or just naive? The right wing are destroying this country and you cannot even see it. You are too blind as you have covered your own eyes with their shit. Why don’t you get a real job instead of commenting the same crap on every article?
You right wingers are demented and you are dangerous to EVERYONE in this country. You should never be in a position of power again. Last time you were we ended up in a deep recession and two badly managed wars (republicans created ISIL by promoting STUPID policies). Iraq was better off with Saddam.
@Giancarlo85: The only people destroying this country are people like you. Spreading AIDS…now you want to molest boys….in the Boy Scouts….etc…etc..etc…
Sex sex sex is all you fuckers think about!
@dwbyers1960: You’re a fucking demented imbecile. What are you doing on a gay website anyways? Most child abusers are heterosexual men. You really are a dumb fuck!
Is anyone surprised by this? Really. Anyone?
That is a Klingenschmitt that we can do without.
The Duggar father is good friends with two people who are child molesters or 8n jail for child pornograhy and this guy has a good friend who is a child molester.
Isn’t interesting just how many of these folks who are bigots and preach about attacking other groups, and attack gays, all seem to have shocking horrifying secrets or seem to be very close friends with child molesters?
@Cam: But they will tell you their friends found Jesus lol.
@Giancarlo85: Oh of course they will!
The thing is, anything you see on the news about Child molesters seems to indicate that they are involved in networks with other child molesters so they can share files and information.
So isn’t it interesting that the two people that the Duggar father took his son to when the son molested those girls are child molesters? The FIRST TWO people that the Duggar Dad thought would be good to go to are both child molesters.
What are the chances of that? Pretty good if the father is also one, and took him to other people in his “Network”. I’m thinking that Duggar family has far more skeletons in the closet than have already come out.
Indeed! Rather questionable. I find the Duggars perhaps the most dysfunctional and immoral family in America—mainly because they’re so happy to publicize their misbehaviors. Of course, I must always remember that god is on their side. How much worse can it get?
@Grant Mealey: I can’t say you’re a “bad gay.” But you’re obviously not doing your part or reading all of the memos from headqarters.
No one is going to convince me that Klinginschmidtt doesn’t know his way around a poopshute.
Or, if he’s ever frisked, that they won’t find a battery-operated, “pocket pal,” vibrating anus among his personal effects.
Gordon Klingstoshit has the characteristics suitable for a movie casting an evil, creepy pedophile.
@Giancarlo85: In response to rates of child molestation, I have seen research which shows that 24% of homosexual men have had sex with an underage person, while the rate for heterosexual men is 3%.
What about the children who are part of the LGBT community? Do they deserve to be hung around their necks and drowned in the depths of the sea? And do all children who are part of the LGBT community molest children?
