South Carolina Congressional Candidate Calls Gay People “Gremlins” Out To “Destroy Lives”

Culler and his wife, Renee.

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:

What a charming family man.

    I just can’t get past the comparison of Gay society to gremlins. It’s very difficult to take this politician seriously.

  • AtticusBennett

    check out his Facebook page.

    yet another closeted homosexual who thinks if he whips up enough hatred toward us his fellow bigoted friends and family won’t notice that he’s TOOOOTALLLYYY GAYYYYYYY

    he’s also doing the classic Right Wing trick – say hateful and bigoted things about a certain group, then call the group intolerant for responding to your hatred.

    the man just ruined his daughter’s lives – likely permanently. they will now have to live down, FOREVER, their hateful crazy dad being immortalized on the internet as a bigoted idiotic embarrassment.

  • Kangol

    He radiates GAY FACE, so it’s pretty clear he’s a self-loathing, closeted gay man. So many out there, and they pack the ranks of the GOP.

    Yep… SC is full of closet cases. I was raised in SC (since escaped) and it’s very common. The funny thing is that SC has its own DADT policy with respect to gay Republicans. They just don’t care unless you try to come out. Most of my relatives still live in SC and just about all of them believe Lindsey Graham to be gay, but since he denies it, and the SC press doesn’t push it, they gladly vote for him over and over and over again. They ALL know.
    In SC it’s better to be a closeted homo (with a FB on your staff to keep you satisfied) than it is to be a straight Democrat. They’ll vote for the closeted Republican every time.

    @AtticusBennett: The really sad thing about all this is that we have more to fear from our own very conflicted closeted brothers then from anyone else. Some become Ex Gays while others think hating gay men solves their inner demons. It’s all the same. Male sexuality can be so fucked up.

  • AtticusBennett

    @Stache99: there will always be the weak gay men who hurt the rest of us because they’re (to use their own language…) Not Man Enough to stand up to the straight bigots in their own lives.

    the ex-gays. the gay republicans who waste their days complaining about “liberals” (which is like Anne Frank complaining about attics….). the “i’m masc, i can’t stand femmes” cowards (again – almost exclusively via anonymous internet comments) and the the closeted homos who adopt an I Hate Gays! Persona as their de facto disguise.

    kind of a cute lesbian

    I thought christians weren’t supposed to believe in gremlins

  • jeffsmith60

    I’m glad other people noticed this, too. This guy has knob gobbler written all over him. He just looks like he would be quite a happy bottom.

  • Saint Law

    The Queerty moderetard just slapped me down for pointing out what a big mouth he has! In some corners that would be considered a good thing – a big mouth.

    You can fit a lot in a big mouth.

  • woodin

    another twit using god to hate…..

  • Gothrykke

    That wasn’t god, queen, that was just Lady Gaga in Troll Drag.

  • IvanPH

    If ‘god’ is really on his side then he should ask ‘god’ to make him win in a heavy democratic district.


  • jlfbman

    Almost hilarious when you think about that great institution…….MARRIAGE BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN…. Such a glorious institution…..from where ALL LGBT PEOPLE COME FROM……God does have a sense of humour!!!

  • Tommy

    Why are they always targeting us?

    • jlfbman

      Because they are scared, God fearing, ego driven little boys pandering to the masses to gain their confidence, get elected and enjoy a well paid political career. LGBT people are targets because we are free to be ourselves, free of all the religious, pious, sanctimonious bullshit that has brainwashed human beings for many, many centuries.

  • Bauhaus

    Is it me, or does this clown bear a striking resemblance to Liberace?

    A little fur, a candelabra, and voila.
