Gay Father Appears To Have 'Lust' For Baby In Photograph, Gordon Klingenschmitt Claims

A former Navy chaplain who's made headlines in recent months for a series of bizarre anti-gay declarations is at it again.

As Right Wing Watch reported, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt displayed what appeared to be a stock photo of two gay men and a baby on an installment of his "Pray In Jesus Name" program.

Klingenschmitt notes that one of the two men "almost has his tongue hanging out, like he's licking his chops, like, 'This baby is ours now.' And that's fine, you may call that love, but it looks to me a little bit like lust."

Klingenschmitt went on to call gay adoption a "recruiting" or "child abuse" tool, claiming that same-sex couples "crave to bring the children of heterosexual couples through adoption into their home" in order to "recruit" them into the homosexual lifestyle.

Of course, anyone familiar with Klingenschmitt's recent history won't be too surprised by the claim. In August, he argued in favor of discrimination against members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

"If your heart is full of corruption or sin or immorality -- in this case, homosexuality -- then you should be discriminated against," Klingenschmitt said, as also originally reported by Right Wing Watch.

He also slammed the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on California's Prop 8, saying, "Lust is not love, and whatever they're doing behind closed doors is not love in the homosexual community. It is lawlessness."
