Mississippi GOP State Rep Andy GibsonIn response to President Barack Obama‘s announcement that he supports marriage equality for the LGBT community, Mississippi state Rep. Andy Gipson (R) said that the “only opinion that matters is God’s.” He then invokes the Christian biblical passage, Leviticus 20:13, which states that gay men should be “put to death.”

Leviticus 20:13: “If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.”

Huffington Post reports Gipson’s Facebook conversation below:

Then, veering even further away from politics and delving deeper into Old Testament religious doctrine — which also states that the earth is flat, snakes can talk, whores should be stoned to death and you should kill your neighbor for working on a Sabbath, Gibson had this to say:

Mississippi constituents at UnityMS flagged the post, reminding Gibson just who employs him:

Mr. Gipson needs to realize he represents all of his constituents. He should not cherry-pick which constituents he wants to work for. He should also realize his positions are neither popular nor Republican. LGBT individuals, couples, and families help pay Gipson’s salary. It’s important that he remember that.

According to the Post, “a November 2011 survey found that only 13 percent of Mississippi voters support marriage equality for the LGBT community, while 78 percent said it should remain illegal. Even among Democrats, only 19 percent expressed support.”

Is anyone surprised?
