Oklahoma Tea Party Candidate Calls For Homosexuals To Be Stoned To Death! (Video)

In what may be a new low for either a current or aspiring politician, a candidate for Oklahoma House of Representatives made some rather disturbing revelations on Facebook and in an interview with the Moore, Oklahoma newspaper.

Meet Scott Esk, Tea Party candidate for Oklahoma State House District 91. Esk, on his political website, believes that our rights come from God, and not from government, and is a big proponent of state rights. And he offers the usual Tea Party Republican platform, being 100% pro-gun, pro-family, pro-life and desiring lower taxes.

Sounds fairly normal so far, right? Well, normal for Republicans these days.

Did we mention yet what his views are about homosexuals?

To say that his views about homosexuals are extreme doesn’t do it justice. This is barbaric, Third World stuff, folks. Brace yourselves…

It all started with a Facebook conversation Esk was involved in along with someone named Alan Bates, presumably a friend of Esk’s. Bates posted a link to an article about Pope Francis, headlined “Pope: Who am I to judge gay people?” This led to a discussion between Bates, Esk, and a few others, of which the screen shot is posted below:

Scott Esk Facebook 1

As you can see, Esk started throwing out Bible verses. The same ones that supposed Christians looking to justify their hatred for homosexuals always do. When Esk quoted Leviticus 20:13 from the Old Testament of the Bible, one can see where he might be headed…

Scott Esk Facebook 2

We’re sure you caught it, but Esk first claims that Leviticus 20:13 gives people the right to judge others, and goes on to claim that it is man’s role to put others to death for atrocities such as homosexuality. Then he goes on to claim that if we don’t start killing off homosexuals that God may send a series of “calamities” to nations who do not. So, in other words, every time there is a natural disaster, Esk has given himself the right to claim that it’s because we don’t follow an Old Testament Bible verse and stone gays and lesbians to death.

Jerry Falwell would be SO proud of this man.

And then it gets worse. Bates asks Esk if he indeed believes that homosexuals should be put to death, and he responds, “I think we would totally be in the right to do it.”

And there it is, folks. The hateful, bigoted, and barbaric belief system of a so-called Christian. A man who actually could win public office in the state of Oklahoma.

But, this is Facebook, right? Every day, people say stupid things on social media that they end up apologizing for, Surely, Esk doesn’t really mean it when he says that the entire LGBT community should be lined up and stoned to death by loving Christians so as to save our entire nation from God’s wrath. Right?

Well, apparently Esk meant every word of what he said, according to a video report from the Moore, Oklahoma newspaper, which you can listen to here.

When asked if he really believed that homosexuals should be stoned to death, Esk responded that because it was done in the Old Testament, and it “came from God,” it must be A-OK.

He also said that while he has no plans to introduce a law making it legal to stone homosexuals to death in Oklahoma (whew!), he has serious “moral misgivings” about that particular sin.

Wonder how he feels about people eating pork?

And when pressed further, Esk admitted that he would not have a problem with a law that would make it legal to stone homosexuals to death.

Shocking…

If the above revelations aren’t enough reason to despise Scott Esk, here’s another one… In a post on his Facebook page made on November 26th, 2013, Esk described the time he called 911 because he saw a large group of Hispanics gathered outside of a shopping mall. No crime was being committed, except that Esk merely believed that many of them were illegal aliens because, you know, they were Hispanic and all.

Thankfully, he was taken to the woodshed in the comments below his post, but this incident further solidified his credentials as a grade A douchebag.

    I just looked at his FB page, nothing about homosexuality on there, either the article is lying or he took it off.

    • Ross Archer

      He took it off.

    • Ross Archer

      Even far right whack-a-doodles recognize when everyone’s laughing at their asinine position. He figured it out (to his minor credit) and took it down.

    • uhhuhh

      So you think it is acceptable for conservative Christians to advocate killing gays? Yes or no?

      • Jasper Taylor

        I think it is such a great idea — it’s like Sharia law but without the fussiness of the koran. And stoning seems so exciting for Americans, so barbarics, but like, in a cool new way. We could charge tickets for the stonings and use the money from that to buy guns to equip our pre-teen children in case their school gets shot up. In short, I’m so hopeful that the Republicans gain more power so we can al experience this bright new future of theocratic excellence!

        • Sage

          Well then let be be the first to say, should one gay person be stoned to death in this country, then it would be my pleasure to hunt you down and gut you like the pig you are.

      The story is in The Miami Herald on 12/2/2010 about ibises birds turning gay when exposed to mercury.

    Some nobody from nowhere. But you won’t say anything about muslims. You know, the ones who actually DO put gays to death.

    • uhhuhh

      So you think it is acceptable for conservative Christians to advocate killing gays? Yes or no?

      • Ferdinand Marcos 2.0

        Oh yes of course. they should all be summarily rounded up and executed for their debauchery. Dummy.

            There is no debating with you people, that’s the problem. You all wear blinders. God forbid a person have a different opinion without having to post links to the whole internet and Library of Congress to verify everything they say.

    • mamajane

      First, this article is about an American Christian, and we’re discussing his use of the Christian Bible to justify his own abhorrent views. Were this an article about a Muslim candidate using the Koran to justify similarly abhorrent views, rest assured we’d be speaking out against that too. I just love it when the Christian trolls roll in to cry Christian persecution by us heartless, godless liberals. We’re in America, where it is still illegal to murder someone for being gay, no matter the religious “justification”. Anyone who murders another human, be they Christian, Muslim, Atheist, Pastafarian, etc., is subject to the same laws. Despite popular rwnj fantasy, sharia law is not the law of the land here.

      • Ferdinand Marcos 2.0

        It’s about someone who refers to themselves as a Christian. Of course you know the majority of Christians also share this view.

        • Fox

          I do not believe that anywhere close to a majority of Christians share this view, but cognitive dissonance is another thing entirely…

          • Ferdinand Marcos 2.0

            Are you a Christian Fox?

        • 4boysmom

          I consider myself to be a Christian and my views are not even close to this! This guy like a majority of these tea baggers are disgusting vile human beings hiding behind religion. They make me sick! If anyone is going to hell it will be them not someone who happens to fall in love with see omeone of the same gender.

          • Ferdinand Marcos 2.0

            turn off MSNBC and Comedy Central.

        • MilitantRubberDucky

          It’s about someone running as a U.S. Congressman spouting these views. It’s about someone who would hold an active role in creating the laws of this country, who would lobby on behalf of members of their district, who would entertain lobbyists. This is dangerous hate speak and should not be tolerated. Show me the Muslim political candidate with these public views, and I will do my best to ensure they too don’t get a position of political power.

          • Ferdinand Marcos 2.0

            You’re an imbecile.

            Oh your homer simpson.
            I thought I recognized your general ignorance and lack of common knowledge. But to answer your question, Muslims or islam is the not predominant power in this country, or like gay people they would put you to death as well.

          • Ferdinand Marcos 2.0

            *you’re.

          • Karma_Hitman

            I see your Icon is a self portrait.
            How long have you molested your pets Ferdinand?

          • Ferdinand Marcos 2.0

            I do not find myself sexually aroused by animals. Nor have I ever engaged in an act of bestiality. Perhaps you are projecting?

          • Sage

            The closest I have come to doing an animal was your sister.
            You dad traded her to me for two goats, like the bible says

          • Ferdinand Marcos 2.0

            That is very obscene. Not surprising that it came from a sick mind such as yours apparently.

          • Karma_Hitman

            oh so it is your pets molesting you, my bad.

          • Ferdinand Marcos 2.0

            Earth to Karma_Sh*tman : Not everyone’s mind is consumed with acts of deviant sex. That may be difficult for you to accept I know.

          • Karma_Hitman

            Says the guy, with an Icon of a man costumed like a panda,
            Yea right. You are the kinda guy that make the sheep nervous.

          • Ferdinand Marcos 2.0

            I stand for human rights, the panda avatar is appropriate. Your avatar is the type I would expect from a juvenile mentality. Given the tone of your comments, I suspect I’m not far off. Grow up son, and get that chip off your shoulder.

          • Sage

            1. My words only have the power you give them, so you can only blame your self, if they have bothered you in any manner whatsoever.

            2. You say you stand for human rights, that is not a bad thing in its self, however the panda thing “stands for human rights” well you lost me there, not your fault, it is mine. but that is beside the point.

            3. My icon was created to cause as much visual disruption to any christian (or variations of) I come across as possible, and I assure you it does. I am their natural enemy because I think for my self. I have others for the other religions.
            All the good and bad that I do, is my own creation not some mental defect that causes one to believe in a god or a devil. Religions are soaked in the blood of their victims.

            4. You act the victim, you always will be, unless you decide other wise. The human race is doomed on this planet, it has damaged it, beyond it’s ability to repair the damage it has done. You say you stand for human rights.
            I find that odd that humans have done very little right and are in fact killing their mother.

            5. I test people to see how elastic and agile their minds are, then I cultivate the one who pass. Sorry to say you are not one, you allowed the conversation to guide you instead of guiding the conversation, so this will be the last of the conversation I have with you, on my part, you may reply however, whatever, you say will fall on blind eyes.

            Maybe one day thou will mature, but I fear it will be to late.

            Have a good day.

          • Jody Bennett

            Intolerant? Yes, I am intolerant of the view that stoning gay people to death is a good idea, and that this following of the scripture would in fact lessen God’s wrath upon us.

            You called someone “stupid” on this thread because you disagreed with their comment. Is this an example of your tolerance?

            I have to admit that calling you an ass falls into the same category. And for that I do apologize.

            I just felt that your comments were rather flippant and that you were just trying to “poke the bear”, as it were, rather than attempting to engage in an intelligent dialogue. I’m sure we are all guilty of this at times.

          • Ferdinand Marcos 2.0

            I would say the same thing, but I’m no progressive. When you identify with an ideology you wear it’s badge. Good and bad. That’s why I’m a fascist. (sarcasm)

    It amazes me that Christians always seem to remember that one part of Leviticus, bit ignore Leviticus 20:10. Which says

    If a man commits adultery
    with another man’s wife, that is, with the wife of a fellow countryman,
    both the adulterer and the adulteress must be put to death

    That would certainly cut down the voters

    • Bob_Barnes

        Joe,

        I’ve imitated Jesus son of Joseph since I was a child and was taught to do so in Sunday school. Therefore, I AM a liberal Democrat believing in a balanced-budget accomplished by taxing the rich more.

        You’ve misinterpreted the “separation of church and state”. On July 3, 1776, George III was king of the British colonies in America and head of the churches here, especially the Church of England. After the Declaration was signed the next day (only by John Hancock and attested by Charles Thomson), the ‘Episcopal Church’ in Philadelphia conducted the mass for the first time without mentioning the British king.

        In the US, the different houses-of-worship are governed by themselves without any state involvement. Atheists have tried to promote their religious beliefs by aggressively trying to extract any mention of GOD by government officials. This is NOT an example of separation of church and state, nor is the 5%+ atheist population an example of majority rule.

        Atheist Darwinian evolution is incorrect, yet its proponents are aggressive fundamentalists who are unwilling to even hear any conflicting scientific data. What hypocrites! GOD-guided evolution including reincarnation, intelligent design, sudden catastrophes, ‘appearance of random mutations’, panspermia and extraterrestrial intervention.

    • StevesWeb

      Much to your point I have made a series of websites to remind Christians that God Hates lots of things. One might google God Hates along with one of the following words or phrases; barbers, brats, crustaceans, mixed fibers, pork, vaginas.

          Of course God would have to exist before She could hate anything, so, yeah, you’re right. The non-existence of God pretty much assures us that She does not hate anything.

      It doesn’t amaze me. It makes perfect sense. They’re hypocrites.

            In so much as you’re capable, emulate Christ’s actions toward people as depicted in the 4 gospels and you will do just fine. This is where “Christians” fall flat on their faces. They choose to revert back to the “Old ways”. Christ was all about love and kindness. If all “Christians” focused all their Bible reading attention to those 4 documents there would be a lot less issues coming from those professing to be “Christians”!

          • Skyhollower

            What do you call people, who believe in and apparently follow old testament teachings and not new testament?

          • SmarterThanGlennBeck

            Not Christians. If a person does not follow the teachings of Christ (which are only found in the New Testament) they can not be a CHRISTian. They are followers of the old jewish traditions and laws.

          • http://7seals.yuku.com/ Brad Watson

            Correct. The term ‘Christian’ originated by those who saw the Messianic-Jews and Gentiles imitating the ‘Christos’. The concept of one being a ‘Christian’ just because they believe in Jesus the Christ, yet they can sin as much as they want and still go to heaven when they die has now been trumped by the Christ returning and “Everyone is judged according(74) to their actions” – Rev 20:12-13.

          • SmarterThanGlennBeck

            The bottom line is, once accepting Christ it also follows that one would want to be Christ like, emulating him to the best of your ability. I don’t think the intention was ever that a person would accept Christ and continue to do bad deeds. Christ’s main message was one of love not hate or degradation. People claiming to be Christians but do not actually follow his example are liars. You can not accept Christ without accepting his message and his ways.

            I totally understand as it often baffles me. I vacillate as to whether or not I claim the name but I keep coming back because I know that Christ has been hijacked by politics of fear and loathing. I know a history of Christianity that has stood firmly on the side of the marginalized and I know a thriving community of Christians who are the graceful and faithful counterparts to the hateful, manipulative “Christians” that dominate the landscape and media. I invite you to check out my blog where I thrash around trying to figure out all this – sometime with grace and sometimes with rage.

            Wrong. There’s no contradiction in a gay man or woman being a Christian; none whatsoever. I don’t know where you live, but here in S. FL, you would see many homosexuals being open in numerous Christian congregaytions.

      • Ed Kania

        This shows that the bible is full of inconsistencies and should be disregarded as the writers couldn’t even agree on their moral code thousands of years ago.

        I suppose some moderate christians just can’t let go of what they grew up with or what is culturally familiar.

        • MissArtyNutMeg

          Well, it is and it isn’t. Leviticus was written way before Christ, and details Mosaic Laws. Christians are supposed to believe that Mosaic Laws were fulfilled and replaced when Christ came. In other words, you’re supposed to know the Old Testament basically as background, but the Christian rules are in the New Testament. Anything Jesus said is supposed to trump anything in the Old Testament. They conveniently pick out the verses they want to beat people over the head with, knowing that most people won’t know the context of them, or likely not knowing or understanding it themselves.

          What I love is when so-called Christians claim they follow all the rules in the Bible. But as you said, it isn’t possible. If they were educated on their own professed faith, they’d know they don’t have to obey every verse.

          • http://7seals.yuku.com/ Brad Watson

            MissArtyNutMeg,

            Well put. Don’t forget that Jesus son of Joseph wrote none of the Bible. His 2nd Coming is now shedding light on many questions. Google: “7 Seals” revealed as ‘beyond Einstein theories’.

          Inconsistencies was partly why I became atheist. Of course it was also because religion has been the cause of every major civil rights issue in the world. Queers, women, Slavery, the Crusades, etc.

            Stephen,

            Of course, religion has NOT been the cause of every major civil rights issue in the world. That was a ridiculous statement you made. “Money is the root of all evils.” Slaves were not brought to the New World with any religious explanation, it was strictly a financial reasoning.

            Atheism is a lie that’s mostly promoted by those who see themselves as god. Science has proven GOD in many different ways, i.e. GOD=7_4 algorithm.

    Leviticus 20:9-10 states that mouthy children and adulterers should be killed as well. Does Mr. Esk support those passages as well, or just the ones that allegedly condemn gay people?

    Leviticus 20:9-10 “For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; his blood shall be upon him.
    And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.”

    • Skyhollower

      Well Esk is sort of a mouthy child…so be it.

      I have never seen it, but has anyone come across a Psychologist’s analysis of Leviticus? I just see him as a lonely person sitting in a darkened room, drooling slightly as he carefully writes down, what I think we today would call a manifesto, by the light of a single candle. Is there that much of a difference between what Leviticus states and what some of these current mass shooters are writing about or making videos about? Is Leviticus just writing about what he wants to do or feels should be done to the people that bullied him, or rejected him? I have always found Leviticus to be a very weird, out of place part of the Bible.

      Take Leviticus, rewrite in modern language and send it to the police. I can guarantee you will have loud knocks on your door and be visiting the insides of a white room, in a white jacket with your arms crossed in the front, connected by straps across your lower back.

    I may be stating the obvious, but Esk wasn’t going out on a limb with his interpretation of Leviticus. I’m not saying I support it, I’m saying the opposite. This is why religion is dumb. These morals are from the bronze age. I think the fundamentalists are just the people who haven’t moved past society. If you want to devote your life to a set of morals and you’re a well adjusted member of society, don’t use the bible. Don’t be a christian. This is the logical conclusion of living your life by those morals.

    Also, I love how christians quote leviticus as if it’s essential to their doctrine but when they claim Islam is a violent religion and you point out the similarities they’re quick to distance themselves from the old testament.

    • Larry Berry

      What I always get a kick out of, is whenever someone quotes that Leviticus line to denounce homosexuals, I will post a ton of other quotes from the bible that point out you should also stone to death women who are not virgins on their wedding days and anyone who works on the sabbath. Their response? “That’s from the old testament and doesn’t apply anymore”…. I haven’t determined yet if they actually don’t realize that the Leviticus line they quoted was also from the old testament or just choose to ignore that fact so they can pick and choose. My theory is that they actually haven’t read the bibles and instead only know about passages that support what they want to believe.

    I had no idea that we as a society follow the (no longer applicable) passages from Leviticus. Oh, right. We don’t. Which makes Scott Esk even stupider than he seems to be. Is he even aware that there are a slew of “abominations” in Leviticus that require the death penalty? Why isn’t he promoting the stoning of children that backtalk their parents? I hope he doesn’t shave off that totally-not-gay goatee. Otherwise, he’ll be in violation of Lev. 19:27. He better not have a tattoo, either. God doesn’t seem to approve of such body desecration: Lev. 19:28.

    I don’t recall of there is a biblical passage regarding mothers that happen to drop there sons on their heads 15 times. But Scott might want to look into it.

    Just as scary, the authors scoffing at the idea that our rights come from “God” instead of being granted by the government. Actually, the idea that we are all “created”equal and the government protects the rights we automatically have just for being born is one of THE principles our freedoms are founded on. Go with the idea that our freedoms are granted by whatever politician or organization is in power and you get douchebags like Esk writing away the lives of anyone they don’t like.

    Good grief. Even the (Conservative and Orthodox) Jews who think Leviticus is binding don’t believe in stoning people anymore. Many Conservative shul welcome gay and lesbian couples, bless their relationship and ordain them as rabbis but ask that gay men don’t commit anal sex which is ALL those verses prohibit. Kissing, cuddling, oral sex and everything else is on the table.

    How is this guy Tea Party? Nothing on his site about Tea Party. Nothing in FB discussion about Tea Party. You guys took it at face value and didn’t ask the obvious. I asked Salon several times. No answer. I asked the Steve Esk thread on Twitter. Nothing, if I’m wrong, fine. This guy isn’t Tea Party as far as I can tell.

    Leviticus 19:16
    “‘Do not go about spreading slander among your people. “‘Do not do anything that endangers your neighbor’s life. I am the Lord.” I think Esk forgot to read this one

    That last guy said it all, but in the wrong way. it should of been directed to the Bible as a whole and not the individual topic of death penalties for homosexuals. Either God is wrong about His morals or you have better morals than God does. It’s that simple.

    Esk seems to be a confused man who professes faith in God but apparently didn’t get the memo that since the death, resurrection and ascension of Christ love (not stoning people to death) is the fulfillment of the law. Sad… Thanks, Mr. Esk, for making it that much harder for every sane Christian!

    And people who work on Saturday. We’d totally be in the right to stone them to death, too.

  • Karivian

    He’s as much Tea Party as Westboro are Baptists. He also claims to be largely libertarian. You cannot be largely libertarian.
    If you do not abide by the core tenet of what it means to be libertarian, then you are
    not. No one has the right to initiate force/violence against another
    person. That is it. Putting someone to death for making choices in
    their personal life that do not initiate force or violence upon another
    person or their property is in fact an initiation of force.

    If
    you choose to violate this principle, you put your life in the hands of
    your victim whether you believe as a libertarian does or not.

  • SmarterThanGlennBeck

    I’m officially calling for TEA party candidates to be stoned to death for violating the the commandments of Jesus Christ; “Do to others as you would have them do to you” – Luke 6:31 and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” – Mark 12:31

    He also seems to misunderstand the section of Romans he is reading which points out god made those people homosexual as a punishment. So he is saying we should punish people for things his god made them do.

  • chillinout.

    We should be putting people like Esk to death

    • Carmelita Spats

      No. That would be violent. I say Esk be given a Biblical marriage to an overstuffed Southern Baptist church lady in desperate need of a tolerable haircut from a recent decade.

    In my bible, Nutcases 2:31 Those named Scott Esk who throw bible versus around willy nilly, should be forced to watch gay sex until the the evil of hatred is squeezed out of their soul. Now should I have the right to do that? Uh, why not?

    If religion were true it would not have been forced on Africans or Indians. Pedophilia[gay] is a brain disorder caused by mercury exposure says U of Florida so cure it to protect children from abuse as I blame the governments for allowing polution to continue!!!

    Will he be arrested for making DEATH THREATS?

    Of course not, politicians are above the law!

    If I made a death threat to him guess where I would be living tonight.

    If we are going to do this lets not go half way. Stoning is also required for,

    For touching Mount Sinai, Exodus19:13
    For taking “accursed things”, Joshua 7:1-26
    For cursing or blaspheming, Leviticus 24:16
    For adultery (including rape victims who fail to scream loud enough), Deuteronomy 22:23-24
    For animals (that kill a human), Exodus 21:28
    For a woman who is not a virgin on her wedding night, Deuteronomy 22:13-21
    For worshipping other gods, Deuteronomy 13:5-10
    For disobeying parents Deuteronomy, 21:18-21
    For witches and wizards Leviticus 20:27
    For giving your children to Molech, Leviticus 20:2
    For breaking the Sabbath Numbers, 15:32-56
    For cursing the king, 1 Kings 21:10
    So either “really” get behind your magic book or stop all of this nonsense.

    “Thou shall not kill.” – Commandment of GOD

    Jesus son of Joseph said nothing about homosexuality. He did say, “Love another” and “Treat your neighbor as you would want them to treat you.”

    I AM reminded of the bumper sticker, “The Christian Right is neither.”

    The Christ has returned and produced the “book/scroll…sealed with 7 seals”/’beyond Einstein theories’ (google that).

    Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. Screw Leviticus and Romans, if your are a Christian, you should be following what Christ said FIRST and FOREMOST. And if Mr. Esk says he is not a sinner, then he is sinning by lying.

  • Matt Markonis

    Mr Esk should be barred from public office for life for advocating homicide against U.S. persons, indicted for hate speech, and investigated for criminal incitement. The limits on free speech can and should apply not only equally, but more stringently to politicians and their vicious, hysterical constituencies!

    I’m a conservative and I think that the Pope is correct.

    It is clear that large parts of the Bible are allegorical. furthermore, the Bible contradicts itself in multiple places. Also, it has been translated multiple times and literal translations often change meaning. Therefore, any fundamentalist who claims to have the one true understanding of the Bible because they take the “literal word of God” is deluding himself.

    As other posters have pointed out, the Bible also calls for death for adulterers. No one takes that literally anymore.

    IMO, many of the prohibitions in the Bible were health related, from a time when people did not understand the germ theory of disease but saw certain acts and foods were associated with certain types of diseases.
