Gordon Klingenschmitt, an ex-Navy Protestant chaplain dishonorably discharged and court-martialed in 2006 has remade himself as a leading voice in the anti-gay movement.

He’s said things like “homosexual sin will always be a stench in the nostrils of Almighty God, an abomination which God condemns and shall punish with everlasting destruction.”

But at least he’s being creative about it: In a new offer to his followers, Klingenschmitt will charge the bargain basement price of just $159 to fax every federal lawmaker a petition opposing the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.

If you’re on a budget, you can, for $18, fax just Republican Senators, but that means your message is probably falling on already sympathetic ears. In an effort to deliver some competition to this space,

Queerty has just announced it will email exactly one person, Gordon Klingenschmitt, a single-line message: “Find a new hobby.” It will cost you nothing. And nor should his faxes, because for a guy who claims “125,000 patriot pastors” have his back in blocking the repeal of DADT, he sure seems bad at his job.

UPDATE: While Although the Chaplain was court-martialed in 2006 for disobeying orders, his discharge from the Navy was categorized as honorable.
