The ultimate in fringe candidates for 2006
Ohio Senate candidate: death penalty for homosexuals
“In my observation and others, the judges have been moving the country toward increasing ungodliness, and I don’t like this.”
— Merrill Keiser, on his desire to return government to its strict religious roots
“If you teach kids that they’re here by accident rather than purposely by somebody putting them here, their self-worth won’t be more than any other animal.”
— Keiser, on evolution
“I don’t claim to know what I’m doing. I’m just doing it and learning as I go.”
— Keiser, on running for the U.S. Senate
Gee, what a sunny, subtle stumping campaign this will be in the Buckeye State! Self-described “Biblicist” Merrill Keiser, Jr. of Fremont, Ohio, will be running the Democratic primary against Sherrod Brown. (WTOL):
Merrill Keiser, Jr., is a trucker by trade, and he’s hoping his next journey takes him all the way to Washington. His goal is a seat in the US Senate, but first he has to make it through the primary that will determine which Ohio Democrat will be the November ballot.
The Fremont man is causing some controversy with one of his beliefs. He tells News 11 homosexuality should be a felony, punishable by death. “Just like we have laws against murder, we have laws against stealing, we have laws against taking drugs — we should have laws against immoral conduct,” Keiser says.
Keiser says he is in the mold of former Georgia Sen. Zell[fire] Miller, if that gives you a clue. We learn more about this breathtaking candidate’s positions on centralohio.com.

Larry Kilgore: A few bibles short of a stack
Blender Val passed this freakshow on — Larry Kilgore, a real nutcase who is running for Governor of Texas. He is hoping to unseat Rick “Blow Dry” Perry. His mission?
My first priority as governor will be to submit to Biblical law given to us by the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ. My job, according to 1st Peter 2:14, will be to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right.
You can see Larry’s nice chart on “The Issues” here, comparing his views on all sorts of matters to those of “Blow Dry” Perry. Take a look what Kilgore outlines as firm contrasts to the sitting Governor:
* 1-40 lashes for crime of maliciousness, like graffiti, porn, strip clubs.
* Execution for crime of murder including abortion. (Exodus 21:12, 21:22-23)
* Execution for crime of adultery. (Leviticus 20:10)
* Execution for crime of homosexual acts. (Leviticus 20:13)
* Execution for crime of deadly negligence, like a DWI fatality. (Exodus 21:29)
* Texans should become independent then stop paying US taxes. $123B
* Texas should secede because the US has sealed its doom.
* Illegal immigrants should receive a minimum punishment of five lashes, $3,000 fine & deportation.
In Larry’s FAQ section, he gives us a peek into how he would govern — and whether he has anything to hide as a candidate…
The US Supreme court has ruled that Texas cannot prosecute adulterers, sexual perverts and murderers of preborn babies. How do you plan to prosecute the perpetrators?
Option #1) The US has a system of checks and balances. If the supreme court makes a ruling contrary to God’s law, then the president can choose not to enforce that ruling. I will ask the president not to send in troops when Texas prosecutes these criminals.
Option #2) I will uphold the current Constitution and sovereignty of the Republic of Texas and propose withdrawal from the corporation titled “The United States of America.”

From age 16 to 24 I dated and did not treat these ladies with respect. Physically I was virgin when I married at age 25, but I did not guard my heart. Dating is not wise!
I have watched pornography on the TV and computer. I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes. Ps101:3
