Montana State Senator Amanda Curtis (D-76 Dist.) is running for U.S. Senate and will no doubt be trying to run away from her past statements mocking guns, Christianity, the Bible, and the family.
She just stepped into the race in place of John Walsh, the Democrat candidate who had to step down amid a plagiarism scandal.
On August 22 the Tea Party Express posted a compilation of Curtis’s statements that include laughing at gun owners who stress the importance of having a gun for self defense. She does this by telling stories about walking home “in the dark, through parking lots and everything,” without a gun. She looks into the camera, feigning surprise, and says, “I’m glad I made it.”
She then references someone who brought up “the God almighty, and natural law, and the Bible, and biblical this and biblical that, and Christianity and fundamental Christianity.” After saying these things she looks into the camera and grimaces, like the mention of these things caused her pain.
She then makes fun of a fellow legislator who said “the most basic form of government in Montana is the family.” She grimaced again and said, “Really?”
Of course, her mockery of the family is also another mockery of Christianity, which puts forth the family as the first authority children learn to obey.
