Scott Esk, a Republican Tea Party candidate in Oklahoma, got into a debate on Facebook last summer in which he advocated killing homosexuals.
I think we would be totally in the right to do it,” Esk wrote in comments uncovered by Oklahoma journalist Rob Morris. “That goes against some parts of libertarianism, I realize, and I’m largely libertarian, but ignoring as a nation things that are worthy of death is very remiss.”
When pressed, Esk added: "I never said I would author legislation to put homosexuals to death, but I didn’t have a problem with it."

Sometimes my state gets in the news for good things. Some very RARE times. We have a lot of astronauts, I'm proud to note, or at least parts that get made for astronautical needs. So... there's that.

Then... the things we export though... not so positive and forward-thinking. I am officially requesting to be adopted by any more blue-leaning state. I'd like to take the role of a cat, if you want to get one but don't want to mess with a litterbox. I am housebroken, though I do shed.

This is why people think America is becoming a third world country. I do not hate Americans, but I can't stand muricans. Seattle,Portland,San fran/Bay area and NY are awesome. But the rest, count me out.

Duly noted. I will gladly count you out. Good riddance.

Don't let the vocal few let you judge the folks in the rest of the country.  These idiots saying these things are outliers and not a true representation of normal folks.

There was someone else from Oklahoma who advocated legalising cannabis based on biblical principles as well recently, wasn't there, which just proves how you really can use it to justifya nything. I think I know which one I'd support.

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

"if you don't support killing gays based on what it says in the Old Testament, you can just get the goshdarned hell out and move to some liberal commie country???" So now one has to support this to be a patriotic American??

You know I actually do care about Americans, no sarcasm intended. Between the rampant homophobia of red states and the constant shootings which dominate it makes the country look awful. Anyone with half a brain knows not all of your are like this, but there is something fundamentally wrong with a place when a 6 year old dies in cold blood and the nra is trying to garner publicity off of it.

Where are you from where you don't have people that say stupid things?  I'm a Seattle native but believe me when I tell you there are people from all over the country (and world) living here including people from OK, and I know from personal experience that there are plenty of good respectful easy going people in OK, such as the man that posted this story probably. List where you're from in your profile if you're not ashamed of being from there.

Is this a true story?  If so, I am deeply troubled and appalled by it.

People do say stupid things everywhere but certain places are more homophobic than others. And for your information I am originally from Montreal, currently living in Calgary.
