Christian fascist Kevin Swanson, who thinks gay people should be murdered in the name of God, should probably just stop going to the movies. Every movie, it seems, is the end of civilization and the reason God is going to destroy the entire world. This time it’s The Shape of Water.
“The Academy Award ceremonies this week provided the best film and best director Oscar to a violation of the worst possible sexual sin mentioned in Leviticus chapter 18,” Swanson said on his radio program today. “Maybe I’ll just leave it there, I don’t want to defile the ears of my listeners. But this was another milestone in the moral degradation of Hollywood and the nation itself. What it did was it presented the ultimate sexual depravity—and, again, I don’t want anyone thinking what this is—but the ultimate sexual depravity as presented in Leviticus 18 is presented in this movie as a tender and romantic and a beautiful thing. Even saying that is just disgusting.”
Swanson proceeded to read a passage from Leviticus 18 in which God warned the Israelites that they would be destroyed if they dared to engage in such depravity.
“God says, ‘Be careful, I might just bring this to you if you violate my law to the level of egregiousness contained in the moral commands in Leviticus 18,’” Swanson declared. “It’s these abominable practices that are being committed in this nation today and glorified at the highest echelons of the nation.”
We’ll just add this to the long list of movies he has claimed would bring down God’s wrath upon us, including Frozen and The Last Jedi. One has to wonder why we’re still alive after multiple versions of Beauty and the Beast.
