When asked why he was running for the U.S. Congress in South Carolina’s 6th district, Republican candidate Anthony Culler replied: “God has asked me to run.”
Evidently, the married father of four, who claims to be a huge fan of Appalachian Mountain music, has God on speed dial and the two have late night gab fests all the time.
“When elected,” Culler wrote on Facebook last week, “I will consult the Constitution and God on every bill. Then I will cast my vote. I will strive to be a Godly servant to the people I represent.”
Last week, Culler wrote a hyperbolic diatribe calling same-sex couples “gremlins,” and “a pestilence that has descended on our society.”
“Do not buy the ‘cuteness’ and ‘What will it hurt?’ arguments whispered in your ears and marketed to our children,” he scribed. “Same-sex couples that seek to destroy our way of life and the institution of marriage are NOT cute and cuddly but rather (for those of you that are old enough to remember the movie), Gremlins that will only destroy our way of life.”
He continued by accusing supporters of marriage equaling for seeking “to destroy the traditional family and the values we cherish.”
Values that apparently include watching horror movies from the ’80s while texting with God.
Culler also called gay people “bullies,” “self-destructive,” and a “scourge on society” with “a strong tendency for substance abuse.”
He followed up last week’s Gremlin statement with this eloquent tweet this morning:
To the voters of SC-6 Vote Anthony Culler if you’re Pro-Traditional Marriage – one man and one woman. Vote @Clyburn if you’re for samesex.
