Rep. Kremer Pushing Conservative Agenda in Legislature

It’s nice to see a local guy on the forefront of pushing conservatism in the legislature. It’s also nice to see him doing so with or without the leadership’s support.

Longtime lobbyist and Republican strategist Brandon Scholz, who works for The Capitol Group, said Kremer represents a state Legislature that is trending younger in recent years and leadership’s relatively new approach of allowing freshmen lawmakers a more prominent role.

“It is a much younger and less institutional Legislature than it has been,” said Scholz. “I also think it is reflective of an attitude — not held by everybody — but certainly held by some of those like Jesse Kremer, who don’t care if they buck the system and don’t care if they get re-elected because they are there on principle.”

Since taking office, Kremer has authored legislation that banned abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, would place gender restrictions on school bathrooms and locker rooms, allow concealed carry permit-holders to carry weapons on public school grounds and college campuses, put photo IDs on food stamp recipients’ debit cards and prohibit city officials from blocking police officers from asking people about their immigration status.

    He left out restricting minority voting and

    Kremer has tremendous respect for women.

    He does not want unchecked Middle East migrants sexually assaulting women, like in Germany, Finland, and Spain.

    Have liberals decided that the Middle East mindset toward women, as property, is an acceptable attitude to import now?

    I find that very interesting.

  3. Mark Maley

    That wild generalization is beneath you Kev

  4. Kevin Scheunemann


    Are you saying the concept of women, as property, is not a widely held part of Middle East culture?

  5. John Foust

    After Mark answers that, perhaps Kevin can expound on his knowledge of how the concept of “women as property” has existed in Western civilization and in the US in particular, followed by his explanation of why Christian culture did or didn’t come from the Middle East.

  6. Kevin Scheunemann


    Where does Christianity advocate women as property? Husbands are instructed in Christianity to love their wives “as Christ loved the church”. That is a pretty high standard in action, if a Christian is reflecting their relationship with Jesus.

    I can point to several areas of Islam that determine women as property in treatment.

  7. John Foust

    You’re not even trying, Kevin. The verse before, in Ephesians 5:24, tells women to submit to their husbands “in everything.”

    As the big orange harangue-utan might say, start with One Timothy 2:11-14, move on to Exodus 20 and 38, Leviticus 12, 15, 19, Numbers 1, 5, 31, Deuteronomy 21, 22, 24, 25, Judges 11, 19, 1 Corinthians 11… it goes on and on, and women were treated as inferiors in Western society until a number of improvements in the last century.

    1.) Old testament ceremonial law is replaced by Christ’s new testament covenant. So I’ll omit your Old testament reference since they no longer apply. If you understood (vs. purposely misunderstanding it) basic Christianity, you would know that.

    2.) The problem is John, by quoting 5:24, you fail to follow up with following 3 passages:

    ” 25 Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, 26 that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27 so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.”

    That is a pretty high standard for treatment of women! Not even the liberal religion holds women in such high reguard in terms of standards!

    There is also a stern warning for not loving your wife as Christ loved the church.

    If that is in practice, there is no higher treatment of women, in terms of standards, anywhere.

  9. Kevin Scheunemann

    …so you faild to come up with any passage that says women are “property” in Christianity.

  10. John Foust

    You’ve bailed on the Old Testament? Nothing you believe, nothing you ask of others comes from there? You can’t find anything in the Old Testament that treats women as something to be traded and controlled? You’re not even trying.

    Yes, I read the surrounding passages in Ephesians. I knew the source of your “Christ loved the church” quote. You’re the one who ignored the passage before, right?

    1 Timothy 2:11-14:

    11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.

    12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

    13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.

    14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

    All those verses about woman submitting to man – that’s the New Testament way of saying men and women are equals?

  11. Kevin Scheunemann


    Those passages indicate women should not have biblical authority over a man ( such as office of pastor). Paul was describing church authority.

    It does not indicate woman should be mistreated, or treated as property as you claimed the bible does.

    Would you like to come to a bible study on topic, so you can stop purposely misunderstanding the bible?

    ( I am not “bailing” on OT. I was indicating OT ceremonial traditions have been replaced by NT covenant. Another issue you are welcome to Bible Study on.)

    So when will you get to passages that you claim Christians teat women as property?

    All this dancing around your false biblical claim makes me lose interest.
