Here's a new twist on the "I have gay friends" excuse/justification/steamingshitpile tossed out by homophobic hack politicians from Sarah Palin to Richard Sanders:

A Republican Party official on Tuesday criticized anti-gay comments made by a Republican who is running for the Iowa House. Candidate Jeremy Walters of Des Moines wrote on his Facebook page that the Bible says gays should be killed, and that he believes AIDS was designed by God to kill them.

Walters wrote: "The Holy Bible say if your 'GAY' homosexual they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. This tells me alot so should we kill them NO. They Need to ask God to forgive them of their sins and mean it turn away from it. They also need to know that when it says that their blood shall be upon them that tells me it is AIDS. Thats how I feel."


Walters at first told the Register that he had no plans to remove the posts. But he said Tuesday night that after talking to Republican officials, he took the messages down. "I'm sorry, that's how I felt because I had friends that passed away of having AIDS," said Walters, a stay-at-home dad who works part time cleaning cars.

But remember: your only going to be put to death if your 'GAY' homosexual, not if your just regular ol' homosexual. Be homosexual, just don't be all 'GAY' about it.
