Genesis 19 shows that the angels knew homosexuality (at least as it was flagrantly flaunted in Sodom) was worthy of death,” Kayser wrote in an article called “Is the Death Penalty Just?” He later claimed implementing such laws would dissuade other gay people from coming out of the closet and perverting society: “Only those who were prosecuted by citizens could be punished, and the punishment could take a number of forms, including death. This would have a tendency of driving homosexuals back into their closets.Kayser recently endorsed Ron Paul, whose campaign called him "an eminent pastor" — and then quickly scrubbed his endorsement from Paul’s website. Below, MSNBC's Ed Schultz chronicles the sorry episode and calls Philip Kayser's homophobic theology "jaw dropping."
Warren Throckmorton says Kayser appears to be a Christian reconstructionist (see this post about their views) who believes that the penalties associated with Mosaic law should be implemented today.
Kayser's ongoing Sunday proselytizing at his UNO alumni center venue has been the target of repeated demonstrations organized by Progressive Oasis blogger Ken Riter, as seen below.
