Homosexuality is "Killing People 2 to 3 Times the Rate of Smoking" Says Missouri Republican


The following ad recently ran in The Daily American Republican of Poplar Bluff in support of the "Don't Say Gay" bill:

As the late Christopher Hitchens might say, "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence."

This ad is full of the former and bereft of the latter.

According to Fired Up! Missouri, the guy who ran it -- Hardy Billington -- is "a Baptist Deacon and state committeeman of the 25th Senatorial District as well as committeeman for the Butler County Republican Party."

During his recent run for Poplar Bluff's school board, Billington described himself as "Pro-life, Pro-family, and Pro-Second Ammendment." Interestingly, he did not say "anti-gay."

Didn't matter. He came in last.
