Swanson: Beware the Demonic ‘Homosexual Borg’

Deranged bigot Kevin Swanson gave his usual inane take on LGBT equality, railing about how the “demonic world” has created a “homosexual borg” that is making good Christian folk cower in fear rather than standing up for their right to oppress other people in the name of God.

“We’re paralyzed by fear,” he remarked. “We’re incapable of moving ahead because of what we fear. Now as you’ve said before, what you fear is what you worship, and it’s probable that Americans worship the state, they worship their money, they worship sexuality, they worship materialism, they worship all these things and they don’t worship the true and living God.” Because Americans don’t fear God, he said, they are “afraid of lawsuits, or they’re afraid of being arrested, or they’re afraid of saying things that might get them arrested, and that’s why they’re not going to fear God and take a stand against the powers of evil.”

This led Swanson to compare the fight against LGBT rights (or “the homosexual borg”) to David and Goliath. “There’s no question that Goliath of Gath, the homosexual borg, is the power in the principality of the demonic world itself. There’s no question in my mind whatsoever.” He warned that “the demonic world had some influences upon the minds of one hundred million people in America.”

Yeah, if there’s one thing we don’t have nearly enough of in this country, it’s Christians speaking out against The Gay. I mean, unless you count all the politicians and preachers and talk radio hosts and their millions of followers and listeners. It might be kind of nice to live in a world where Christians are afraid to speak out against homosexuality, but we sure as hell don’t live in that world.

And he has it exactly backwards. We aren’t “incapable of moving forward,” we are moving forward, toward a more fair and just country. And there isn’t a damn thing you can do to stop it, Mr. Swanson. Keep those bigot tears flowing, though. They’re delicious.

    By Swanson’s “reasoning”, I worship bees. But I worship wasps more.

    Oh, when these fucking Xtians steal references from my beloved Star Trek, then they have Pissed. Anna. Off.

    Stoopid Xtian Dude, let me break in down for you: the Borg are a collective entity, formerly intelligent, thinking people are forced into an organization where one prime personality does all the thinking, all the enjoying, all the gaining.

    Now, does that description *really* fit LGBTQA+ people? I rather say that we and our allies are the Starfleet, resisting your evil, while of course the braindead, evil, unfeeling, uncaring Borg represents all those “Good” “Church-growing, Gawd-fearing” Xtians.

    Hey. I’m a chick that escaped the evil to forge a new life. I’m Sexy Seven of Nine, muthafucks! XD

    Resistance is futile.

    Translation: “I’m going to keep believing I’m in the silent majority, despite all evidence to the contrary.”

    Resistance is futile. You will be ass-stimulated.

    they’re afraid of saying things that might get them arrested

    For the umpteenth time, you can’t be arrested here in the US for saying something against LBGT people anymore than you can be arrested for saying something against black people.

    Now as you’ve said before, what you fear is what you worship

    Well, ain’t that just a sick mindset.

  • Synfandel

    Abby, thank for a good belly laugh.

  • Synfandel

    …what you fear is what you worship…

    I don’t worship poverty.

    I don’t worship gun violence.

    I don’t worship cancer.

    I don’t worship tight, confined spaces.

    We must have a transcription error here: Goliath came from Gath, the homosexual burg, where the Pride Parades were so fabulous everybody called it Gayth.

  • hunter

    “Now as you’ve said before, what you fear is what you worship. . . .”

    And there, in a nutshell, is the whole basis of “Christian” morality.

    “what you fear is what you worship”

    So Swanson worships the devil?

  • http://motherwell.livejournal.com/ Raging Bee

    No, because he doesn’t really fear the Devil — he knows the Devil is made-up bullshit.

    @15 and The Gay!?

    I’m not too thrilled with being forced into buttsex but at least my wardrobe will improve.

    @ composer99 – Thanx, kindly. XD

    @ busterggi – Straight guys can enjoy anal too. :)

    Sounds like resistance might be FUN.

    @15 and The Gay!?

    Actually, in all seriousness, those wingnuts just might fear and worship The Gay. I’m starting to detect a note of awe and fervent reverence in their terrified rhetoric about “the Power of the Gay.” Like they’re terrified of gayness and hate it with every fibre of their being, but at the same time, they’re secretly awestruck by it and want to feel compelled to kneel before its awesome power.

  • eric

    Funny, you’d think that if they were going to pick a Star Trek antagonist to claim represented gayness, they might pick the guy who wore the funny clothes (often changing between scenes) and identified himself with just the capital letter Q. What’s that stand for, hmmmm?

  • http://motherwell.livejournal.com/ Raging Bee

    Are you kidding?! They all want to BE Q — infinite power and no responsibility.

    The Borg can’t be gay … with that ugly ship of theirs and the absolutely colorless and even gruesome outfits.

    Goliath of Gath, the homosexual borg

    The Dead Sea Scrolls say Goliath was four cubits and a span tall (6’6″) but centuries later the Masoretic Text says he was six cubits and a span (9’6″). You can see the legend growing as the years go by. (1 Samuel 17:4)

    Dammit Ed, you need to get out of the ad ghetto. First time I tried to view this my browser (chrome on android) was hijacked with bogus pop up dialogs for scams. Had to kill it and come back.

    All the ads on your site are scams. It’s sad.
