On yesterday’s episode of his “Generations” radio program, radical anti-LGBTQ pastor Kevin Swanson said that the children’s magazine Highlights is no better than ISIS because the magazine has announced that it will begin to feature same-sex parents in future editions.
Swanson said that while ISIS is releasing videos showing young children killing prisoners, Highlights is just as evil because it will “encourage the support for the sin of homosexuality among kids.”
“So now, here’s Highlights magazine, an American kids’ magazine promoting homosexuality amongst kids,” Swanson fumed, “and now ISIS is teaching kids how to kill people. Now, I got to thinking: Which sin is worse? Homosexuality or murder? Which is worse? Are we really that much better than ISIS?”
Swanson earned national headlines in 2015 for calling for the execution of homosexuals shortly before introducing Ted Cruz to speak. A Cruz spokesman later expressed regret for the appearance, but only after weeks of furor from the media. More recently, Swanson declared that the Pulse victims got what they deserved because “God gives up on sinners.”
