In 2012, Texas Republican Larry Kilgore had his name legally changed to "SECEDE" and ran for governor on just that platform. He failed, predictably, but is back again for another run at the office. This time his message is one of 'biblical law'.
On Friday morning, he took to social media with this bit of holiday cheer:
“I’d gladly execute a convicted adulterer, sodomite or bestialiter. Biblical law is a blessin,” Kilgore wrote, alongside a link to a story about “bestiality brothels” in Germany.
Kilgore, who in the past has said he supports the death penalty for homosexuality, is currently refusing to cut his hair or trim his beard “until Texas has laws that can protect unborn children.”
“I tried to build a coalition of libertarians and Democrats for secession,” Kilgore told Fort Worth’s Star-Telegram in June, after announcing his 2018 gubernatorial bid. “Well, that failed miserably. So this time, I’m just sticking with my roots.”
