UPDATE: Don't Vote for Ira Knight

You know, if Ira Knight had just kept his mouth shut, mumbled something about not liking the Nuclear Free Ordinance and didn't say anything about not liking gay people, he might have won. But, he goes and shoots himself in the foot.

Its one thing for the local Christian Coalition to put out a "pastors pick" (pdf file) for the entire county, but they also put out this gem (pdf file), pointing out the differences between Ira and Jeff Kingsbury.

Here's a list of the differences:
  • Ira supports "Voluntary display of the Ten Commandments on public property."
  • Ira opposes "Benefits for same-sex partners of city employees"
  • Ira opposes "Protected minority status for homosexuals, bisexuals, transsexuals, transgender, etc."
  • Ira supports"Funding for faith-based charitable organizations"
  • Ira supports "Diversified energy sources including nuclear power"
Not that any of these issues actually came up in the election, because Ira Knight never brought anything up. Big old thanks to the Christian Coalition for pointing all of this out!
