Earlier this week, GOP gubernatorial candidate and Kentucky Senate President David Williams fired at Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear (D) for taking part in a ceremonial Hindu ground blessing — accusing Beshear of “idolatry” for attending the Hindu ceremony. On Wednesday, Williams clarified his remarks, but his clarification is even more offensive than his original statement. Although Williams says that it is everyone’s “right to be a Hindu person if they want to,” he hopes “their eyes are opened and they receive Jesus Christ as their personal savior.” He also accused Beshear of a long pattern of opposing “outward displays” of Christianity such as “Christmas trees, prayers before high school football games, and posting the Ten Commandments.”

Having spent a lot of years in Louisville, Kentucky, I grew to tolerate the quaint bigotry of that place. But this is ridiculous and I think illustrates how far out there the Republican party has become nationally.

The absurdity of William's statements aside, Republican craziness also drives people into the arms of shitty Democratic candidates like Beshear—a lose-lose proposition.
