A disgraced former Navy chaplain is calling on all photographers to print Bible scripture that says homosexuals are "worthy of death" on the back of photos taken at weddings of gay and lesbian couples.

On his Monday Pray in Jesus Name Internet show, Chaplain Gordon James “Chaps” Klingenschmitt expressed outrage that the New Mexico Supreme Court had unanimously ruled against a Christian photographer for discriminating against a same sex couple.

"Well, this is not the first place and it may not be, sadly, the last place that Christians are punished by law for exercising their religious conscience objections," he warned.

After taking a moment to "discern the spirits," Klingenschmitt pointed out that "we do see a demonic spirit of tyranny and persecution -- and anti-Chritistian persecution, which violates our ability to obey God."

But the former Navy chaplain said that he had come up with a solution: wedding photographers should print on their business cards a Bible verse from Romans 1:32, which he interpreted to mean that homosexuals were "worthy of death."

"Sure you can come, you can hire us, we'll do your wedding, but we're going to stamp on the back of every wedding photograph the scripture from Romans 1 that tells you that it's a sin," Klingenschmitt explained. "We're just exercising freedom of the press. Let's see if they can prosecute that."
