Death To Gays Pastor: “Sexualized” Schools That Teach About LGBT Issues Should Be Burned To The Ground

Kyle Mantyla reports at Right Wing Watch:

On his radio program today, extremist anti-LGBTQ pastor Kevin Swanson and his co-host Bill Jack declared that “sexualized public schools that violate God’s law with high levels of flagrancy” should be burned to the ground.

Swanson and Jack were outraged by the fact that Washington state public schools teach students about gender identity issues, with Swanson at one point connecting this issue to a rape allegation against an employee at the state’s Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Swanson earned national headlines in 2015 by 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 massacre victims got what they deserved because “God gives up on sinners.” In May, Swanson warned that the goal of public schools is to turn children into “transgender communists.”

    • Gregory B

      Kevin is a closet case and hates himself and his sexuality.
      Don’t be like Kevin.

  • Octoberfurst

    So Swanson rhetorically asks why rape is illegal in Washington because if homosexuality isn’t wrong then any “sexual deviance” should be ok. I don’t even know where to begin with this type of stupidity. Apparently Swanson doesn’t understand the difference between two consenting adults having sex and rape.

    • Annerdr

      You start with this:

      It’s a good comparison of Christian sexual ethics v. secular sexual ethics by Libby Anne.

    • Goodboy

      Since were talking stupid I mean applying the same rules why can’t we kill non believers, adulterers, unruly kids, etc. It’s right there in the bible. Oh that’s right. It’s a genecidal book of fairy tales that should never be taken seriously.

      • Octoberfurst

        Don’t give him any ideas.

    • RoFaWh

      He understands that difference perfectly well, but it puts more money in his secret overseas bank accounts than other flavors of rhetoric.

  • TampaZeke

    This bitter, fear-filled faggot is so tiresome!

    • vorpal 😼

      He’s one of the perfect people to point to when one of the NALT Christians decides to peep up once or twice per year.

    • Goodboy

      I just don’t understand how this pond scum has an audience. It’s not just that you’re just full of hate but you really have to be 100% cuckoo.

    • RoFaWh

      The intensity of his hatred for gays (etc) is really a measure of how deeply he is in the closet and how badly he wishes he could find the escape hatch (but without anyone knowing).

      OTOH, he may just be another dirt common grifter who has found that such rhetoric is particularly lucrative and doesn’t give a damn about gays (etc) when it really comes down to it.

  • Lumpy Gaga

    [Bannable] him. Just [bannable] him. One [bannable] and it’s done. Then we’ll go have brunch.

  • Tawreos

    For followers of a “loving god” they sure do love to incite violence against those they dislike.

  • vorpal 😼

    Swanson, if you’re tired of gay people and never want to meet or hear from us ever again, only one person needs to die for that reality to be achieved.

    • (((GC)))

      Actually, zero people. Swanson is free to move to an uninhabited island someplace. Or just stay home and never turn on the TV or use the internet. Either way, the rest of humanity wins.

      • RoFaWh

        How about one of those sand bars China has recently claimed in the South China Sea?

      • vorpal 😼

        While you’re right, I still kinda like my solution a little better ;-).

        • David Walker

  • Nic Peterson

    Better proof of the fact that god was created in mans image you will not find. Cruel god, cruel man.

  • Tomcat

    Outright calling for HATE crimes to be committed. Didn’t this use to be a crime in itself?

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      I guess his threat isn’t specific enough for him to be arrested.

      Stochastic terrorism:
      the use of media such as television “to incite random actors to carry out violent or terrorist acts that are statistically predictable but individually unpredictable”.

  • The_Wretched

    Swanson is a threat to himself or others. Absent the christian words and phrases he uses, he’s a dangerous person who should be evaluated and treated appropriately.

  • bkmn

    End the blanket tax exemption for religions and he would be gone tomorrow.

  • shellback

    Would you also like to see all the churches harboring sexual predators and pedophiles burned to the ground as well? I suspect you’d see a lot more churches in flames than schools.

    Yeah, how does it feel to have lost the culture war and now be second-string news to world events that are, frankly, a lot more important than what’s dribbling out of your pie hole.

    • Jonathan Smith

  • Christopher
  • MarkBuster

    If you or I advocated burning schools down, what do you think would happen? I think there would be a swat team at my house, and my job would end.

    • ChrisInKansas

      Why DOES this closet case get away with shit like that?

      • Jamie_Johnson

        Because if we arrested, prosecuted and convicted all the loonies that make threats against our public institutions, our prisons would be full of white xtians.

    • Tomcat

      Actually the FBI should be knocking down his door right about NOW.
      That is if they did their job of stopping hate crimes.

      • Chucktech

        The FBI knows this guy is just another christian loon running his mouth for jesus.

        • RoFaWh

          The issue, however, isn’t what Swanson himself might do but what his insane ravings might inspire another crazy to do.

      • The_Wretched

        Trump had closed the office that investigated in US christian terrorism.

    • Pat Padrnos

      I am so grateful for the awareness so many people have of the questions youngsters may have about their sexuality.
      I am the mom of a lesbian – she is now 55 – in a good relationship and co-parenting 3 adopted youngsters.
      All of us have our own story and mine is not so unusual – but we must all keep an open mind.
      I am caring for three grandchildren due to the death of their mother in an auto accident. All of them are in counseling. One area of the counseling component that I was surprised at was questions about their sexuality. This is certainly not morbid curiosity – but an effort to offer particular counseling to them.
      They have no qualms about sharing their feelings – obviously brought up in a home where one of their favorite aunts is lesbian and me flying a pride flag on my front porch has something to do with it.
      They have a real problem with people trashing gays – even though rather surprisingly they are somewhat conservative politically. They follow the news online and are much more conservative than I am – and we clash about certain things.
      OK. I have belabored this – just reacting to this outright fool who is ranting about burning schools.

      • David Walker

        You have most certainly NOT belabored this and I thank you so much for sharing this part of your life with us. I hope your grandkids’ therapy helps them cope. You are one strong person; your daughter is very lucky to have you as her mom. Thanks again.

      • RoFaWh

      It would be labeled as fake news and staged by the dead children.

    Well, I think anyone who teaches kids that the Bible trumps science, should be taken out and shot. Actually, you don’t have to take them anywhere.

  • Ninja0980

    Shouldn’t he be arrested for inciting violence?

    • Bluto

      That’s not violence, it’s christian love.

      • Yes, it’s always love when they dish it out. Strange how that same love suddenly transforms into persecution when they’re on the receiving end.

  • Did you not take biology in high school, fool? Schools have been “sexualized” with straight “issues” since schools existed. Simple and narrow mindset that really wants to rule the earth.

  • boatboy_srq

    If Kim and Lord Dampnut go much further with their nuclear d!ck-measuring contest, this won’t be all that big an issue. Finding a school still standing to burn for its unGodly indoctrination, though, will be a good deal more problematic.

    United States to be placed in a polygamous marriage
    with [Warren Jeffs,] the prophet of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

    Blackmore’s estranged wife, Emily Ruth Gail Blackmore, 60, was given a sentence of seven months in prison and 18 months probation.

    One fine Sunday in March El Squeeze and I went to a fair in el Matadero, the meat packing district of BsAs. In the middle of a crowded intersection there was an evangelical street preacher railing, screaming and decrying about the evils of homosexuals. The Feria Matadero attracts lots of retired seniors who show up to dance in the streets and show off their home crafts. At one point someone threw a brick at the preacher. Soon rocks, bottles, trash and what have you came at the preacher from all directions. There were a few parents with young children present. They were throwing stuff, too. Soon a couple of police showed up and took the preacher away. You have the right to free speech in Argentina. You don’t have the right to slander and publicly spread hate in the streets.

    • Tor

      He might like cock. However, I, as a gay man, refuse to call shit like this “gay.” Gay people are self-accepting and at peace with their sexuality.

      • David Raymore

        One cannot say all gay men are self-accepting and at peace with their sexuality. There are some people are very afraid if their secret every comes out. I think that some of these anti-gay bigots are just unhappy and angry that they cannot be out as everyone else is. This pastor is obviously mentally ill and takes the Bible too literally.

        Being gay in some cultures is still very taboo, and if you were raised in a household like that then you are most likely are going to suppress it. It’s going to take several millennia before being gay is going to be accepted by the population at large. Once the older generations die away, then being gay may be at last free to be whoever they want to be.

        • Tor

          I agree with what you say. I just want to keep the word “gay” away from
          the destructive people. I want to reserve the name “gay” to those of us who are self-accepting, or would be if the culture allowed. I hold the honorific away from the folks that speak actively against us.
