Donnie Swaggart proves that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. The son of infamous Christian hypocrite Jimmy Swaggard is at least as much of a ridiculous demagogue as his father, declaring on a TV show that gay people really want to behead Christians like ISIS does and are upset that they can’t get away with it.
“All of this is to shut the Bible up,” Swaggart declared. “They want the Bible gone. And I’m going to make a statement: These people that are trying to do this in Houston, the only difference between them and ISIS, those thugs in Iraq, is those here cannot chop our heads off. That’s the only difference. The heart is the same. The heart is the same. If they could silence us that way to intimidate others, that’s exactly what they would do.”
Right Wing Watch posted video of this on Youtube, but Swaggart immediately filed a copyright infringement complaint and it was removed, as they do automatically when such a complaint is filed. But it will be back, just like their videos of Gordon Klingenschmitt were restored. Apparently Swaggart is really, really concerned about being quoted directly saying really stupid things. It’s now been uploaded to another server:
Hey Donnie, would you like to compare the number of Christians who have committed violence against gay people to the number of gay people who have committed violence against Christians? It’s a pretty lopsided comparison.
