“Pastor” Kevin Swanson is no stranger to craziness – not long ago he predicted that if Colorado allowed gays to marry, it would lead to children being ripped from the arms of loving Christian parents because they had chosen to home school them, and being placed with NAMBLA pedophiles to be fostered. The next step, he claimed, would be gays rounding up Christians and burning them at the stake.
Now he has found an equally abhorrent evil in ENDA, saying that it will lead to child abuse and “sodomite schools.”
On Monday Swanson and his radio co-host Dave Buehner discussed the terrible implications of the law, which protects the rights LGBT people not to be fired from their jobs simply because of sexual orientation. Swanson and Buehner see all sorts of evil intent in the bill, though.
Swanson falsely suggests that the law sets quotas requiring that all employers hire a certain number of gays and lesbians, which of course it does not — to the contrary, it expressly forbids quotas. It also does not require any employer to hire anyone, gay or not.
He outrageously claims, “Friends, we’re getting to the point here where it may be a few family businesses and home schools that would be able to keep homosexuals and homosexual indoctrination away from their children.” He goes on to say that, ” It may become extremely difficult to get your children out of sodomite schools or the Greek form of education, where you know what happens in homosexual indoctrination.”
According to him, the bill will, if it becomes law, set up what he calls “homosexual forms of laboratories” in both public and private schools for the purpose of “homosexual indoctrination.”
Buehner was not about to get left out of the crazy talk and posited his own insane theory, saying, “What’s shocking about this is this is just one small step away from, it’s a giant step towards and one small step towards putting the convicted pedophiles in charge of the daycare, that’s where we’re at.”
Of course, that overlooks the fact that the vast majority of pedophiles are heterosexual and not gay, either convicted or unconvicted. But this sort of TEAvangelical crazy never lets little things like facts get in their way.
Swanson agreed, saying, “That’s the goal. That’s the goal.”
These men aren’t wrapped too tightly – it was only a month ago that Swanson called on his followers to abstain from buying Girl Scout cookies (or to at least blacken out the Girl Scout logo with a magic marker if they simply had to have a box of Thin Mints) because the Girl Scouts support lesbianism, feminism, abortion, and communism.
