Sad About Marriage, Not About Murder

Jim Burroway

June 3rd, 2011

Jeff Kropf, the Oregon state director of the conservative Americans for Prosperity, was sad when he learned about the shooting death of Debbie Lee Higbee Benton, 54, of Gladsone County Oregon. But it wasn’t the murder that made him sad:

You see, it was their marriage makes him sad. But now that their marriage was ended with a bullet, maybe Knopf can cheer up now.

Jeez, and he thinks he’s pro-life? My God, a human being dies and he’s happy? Those people frighten me..

Once you are born, you are on your own, baby.

Grotesque and infuriating.

I think we need to remember our place. According to Jeff Kropf’s Facebook page, he self-identifies as a “Non Denominational Charismatic Evangelical Christian.” And that means he knows much more about morality than we do. So let’s just listen and learn.

What the hell? He’s put out thinking her marriage was illegal and shouldn’t have occurred?!

Murdering a person is HELLA illegal! A WORSE thing to do to someone, than marrying someone of the same sex.
Apparently to this guy, a ban on murder doesn’t have nearly the same principle behind it.

Really, this guy is such an asshole!

A lot of people like to hate on Mother Teresa. The quote “Too many words, just let them see what we do” is applicable here.

What do you think the bible means by “You shall know them by their fruits”?

Go baby go.

The comments on the post are even more disgusting.

You got anything better to add?

What’s wrong isn’t the comments on this post but that respect for life is in such short supply…most of all from the supposedly “pro-life” people.

People like Mr. Knopf there are what’s destroying Christianity, not any outside force.

Mr. Kropf* excuse me.

Name correction aside, he’s still a self righteous ass.

@BlackDog: I was referring to the comments on the *Facebook* post. Not this blog posting. I guess I should have been more clear.

I didn’t read the comments, or the facebook post.

Ignorant comments by right wing morons tend to piss me off.

Sad story about Gladstone hairdresser murdered in her salon. Sad because she illegally married a woman police sgt who falsified the marriage application claiming to be a man and judge illegally married them, violating OR’s Constitution ban on gay marriage. Will anyone be held accountable? Judge or Sgt? Will it endanger her court testimony and overturn cases?

(You could learn from Pam’s House Blend and Slap Upside the Head. Both those websites are very accessible. Good As You is terrible.)
