A South Carolina lawmaker told an audience at a public hearing this week that Christians would “be surprised when (they) got to heaven” and were greeted by a homosexual – who would then turn them away.
Translation? St. Peter – the “rock” upon which Jesus Christ built his church – is gay.
The bizarre remarks were made by S.C. Rep. Gilda Cobb-Hunter (D-Orangeburg) in response to an effort by Upstate evangelical lawmaker Garry Smith – a Republican from Greenville, S.C. – to strip higher ed funding for pro-gay propaganda.
Gilda Cobb-Hunter has a history of making crazy statements.She is the closest thing South Carolina has to a Sheila Jackson-Lee or Alan Grayson. Luckily, the people of South Carolina aren’t dumb enough to elect her to any officer higher than the State House.
