Creep of the Week: Kevin Swanson

You guys. I have good news. Kevin Swanson doesn’t want to murder all of us in the name of Jesus. And by us, I mean anyone who is LGBT or LGBT-adjacent (i.e. you have a friend, relative or someone else in your life who is LGBT and you’re cool with that). He says the whole thing where he said that LGBT people should be killed was just a big misunderstanding. You see, he was just talking about what it says in the Bible, not about how he wants to spend his free time.
“On the one hand, I have reiterated God’s moral injunctions concerning homosexuality contained in the Christian Bible,” he said in a Nov. 25 statement. “But when confronted with the question, ‘Shall we exhort our civil magistrate to implement the death penalty as mentioned in Romans 1 and Leviticus 20?’ … The answer is ‘No.'”
And then he says he totally wants civil servants to obey Christ but, “I have made the point very strongly that politics and government won’t save this nation.”
Duh, Christ will! Swanson isn’t saying that he wants the government to kill gays. He just wants God to.
So I think we all owe Swanson a big fat gay apology. After all, according to some sources (i.e. Kevin Swanson himself), 2015 was THE YEAR for Christian persecution in America “and this may yield more suffering for Christians in 2016.”
Why can’t the Christians get a break in this country? I mean, Jesus Christ! It’s 2016! You’d think Christians would finally be able to freely exercise their religion instead of having to hide in shame, praying only in airport restrooms and seedy bars. The children of Christians shouldn’t have to pretend they have godless parents lest they be tormented in school. Christian teens shouldn’t be told that “it’s just a phase” or get thrown out of their homes when they come out as believers in Christ.
I mean, it’s not like the majority of Americans identify as Christian — oh, except they do. Which makes this whole “persecution” thing kind of difficult to swallow. But, you know, secular forces at work and all.
“As we continue to face the devastating effects of the sexual revolution (including sins such as adultery, homosexuality and illegitimate divorce), America is risking God’s judgment,” Swanson’s statement continued. “Individual Americans have a more serious problem to confront than retribution from civil government, and that is the eternal judgment of God.”
And let me tell you, God is hangry and is going to show us who is boss. How? By letting Hillary Clinton get elected. Because if she’s our next president, it won’t be a reflection of the will of the people, but rather a brutal way for God to say, “I am disappoint.”
“Why wouldn’t Hillary Clinton get full rein upon this nation to continue the destructive pattern, destroy the social fabric of the nation — the family, of course,” Swanson railed on the Dec. 28 episode of his “Generations Radio” show.
Yes, why wouldn’t she? Clinton’s campaign stump speech, “I will destroy all of the families in the U.S.,” polls very favorably with voters seeing as most Americans are heathens who only love butt sex and abortion.
Swanson predicts that after Clinton becomes Queen, “Tremendous majorities of American kids (will be) taken down the track towards homosexuality.”
It’s a curious claim because, first, how did he find this out? It’s one of Clinton’s most closely guarded campaign secrets. And also, what constitutes “tremendous majorities”? It sounds so big, and yet means so little. Like so much of what Swanson says.
