Kevin Swanson: Criminalize homosexuality "for freedom"

See also

Like many religious authoritarians, Kevin Swanson still struggles with the sad truth that you don't need to be Christian and male to have any rights in America.

Swanson, who had previously come to this column's attention for claiming homosexuality destroys civilizations, was unsurprisingly mortified by a court ruling that a Colorado bakery had discriminated against a gay couple.

According to Swanson's sidekick, Dave Buehner, this could eventually lead to schools being "forced to hire Jerry Sandusky when he's on parole."

"What I think the homosexuals are doing is pressing into every nook and cranny of civil society," Swanson said, after which he urged fundamentalist Christians to "impose God's laws upon our systems, especially our political systems."

Swanson proceeded to call on Christians everywhere to advocate for the re-criminalization of homosexuality. . .

For freedom.

"God's laws require that we prosecute homosexuals who are caught in the act of homosexuality or the act of sodomy on the basis of two or three witnesses. If Christians would do that, if Christian pastors would do that then we would be able to hopefully press back the line upon those who are impressing their rights upon Christians who really need that religious freedom."

This is getting exceedingly tiresome, but it bares repeating no matter how many times religious authoritarian psychopaths like Kevin Swanson demand it: The freedoms of Christians are not being violated because non-Christians have freedoms too.
