Pastor Swanson’s cow dung threat over gay marriage
Pastor Kevin Swanson’s National Religious Liberties Conference, staged in Des Moines, Iowa, may now be over, but derisive laughter over some of the things the loon told delegates continues to to reverberate across America.
How can one not laugh when, for example, he tells how he’d react if one of his sons turned out gay, and invited him to his wedding?
There are families, we’re talking Christian families, pastors’ families, elders’ families from good, godly churches whose sons are rebelling, hanging out with homosexuals and getting married and the parents are invited.
What would you do if that was the case? Here is what I would do: sackcloth and ashes at the entrance to the church and I’d sit in cow manure and I’d spread it all over my body. That is what I would do and I’m not kidding, I’m not laughing.
In another rant, the Christian extremist said it would be better for parents to “hang a millstone” around their childrens’ necks and drown them “at the bottom of the sea” rather than let them read J K Rowling’s Harry Potter books.
The Colorado hate preacher then complained that coverage of his his anti-gay comments, including his recent remarks that AIDS is “God’s retribution” for homosexuality, is part of a larger attempt to “shut down Christian media”.
Christians, he warned, must:
Prepare to see our radio programs and our ministries, and our churches, our schools, completely wiped out by … the homosexual forces.
