This past week, Rev. Welton Gaddy traveled to Des Moines, Iowa to keynote a forum on religious liberty. The impetus: Freedom2015, a far-far-religious-right event across town, hosted by a preacher who insists that LGBT Americans are due the death penalty. Loudly. Last weekend, he did it in the presence of 1600 cheering “Christians,” including three that are making a serious run for the White House! It’s likely Welton has some strong words for Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee and Bobby Jindal regarding the oath to uphold our secular Constitution that all three ostensibly aspire to – and what a betrayal of that oath it is to legitimize such a hatefest with their participation.
