Colorado State Sen. Scott Renfroe:
Gays Are Like Murderers

The asshats are coming out of the woodwork every day lately. During the Colorado state senate debate on extending health benefits to the same-sex partners of state employees, Sen. Scott Renfroe (R) compared gays to murderers and quoted Bible verses calling for homosexuals to be put to death. Via ProgressNow Colorado:
On the floor of the State Senate, right-wing Senator Scott Renfroe (R-Greeley) actually referred to gay and lesbian people as an "abomination" and an "offense to God.” It gets worse. Renfroe equated gay and lesbian people with murderers and quoted the Book of Leviticus suggesting that gay people should be put to death. He also said that women were created to be "helpers" for men, quoting the Book of Genesis. Renfroe was referring to Senate Bill 88, a bill that would extend healthcare coverage to the same-sex partners of state employees. SB 88 is about healthcare. It’s about gaining some measure of equality for gay and lesbian state employees. And regardless of how people like James Dobson and Scott Renfroe feel about gay people, their shameless hate-mongering has no place in public debate and we should reject them completely.
Audio of Renfroe's speech is below. Am I hearing something "funny" about his voice?
