Quoting Quiverfull: Stone The Gays?

Quoting Quiverfull: Stone The Gays? January 6, 2014

by Kevin Swanson from his Generations Radio show as posted at Right Wing Watch

Swanson: They’ll also witness a controversial same-sex wedding, courtesy of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation. According to the Pasadena Star News, a pair of homosexual hairstylists will ‘marry’ along the parade route while riding a wedding cake-shaped float sponsored by the AIDS group.

Buehner: This is an AIDS group? This is a group that’s against AIDS? They’re not trying to spread AIDS right? I mean, if you are trying to spread AIDS you would have pro-homosexual propaganda but if you’re trying to stop it….

Swanson: They may be serving lemonade too as part of the event, I hope not but maybe.

Buehner: I wonder what the Rose Bowl parade would do if we had the stoning of a homosexual along the parade just as an expression of free speech and all that.

Swanson: I think that would be rejected by the Rose Bowl parade committee.

Buehner: Well what if the stones were just made like of flowers and flower pedals?

Swanson: I don’t know if they’d allow that or not. Anyway ladies and gentlemen, this is another instance in which the degradation of our society is going mainstream.

Swanson:They are coming after Christians and if there is 45% of Christians in America or 45% of Americans who disagree with homosexuality or homosexual marriage, they will lose their jobs. That’s the goal, to make sure they lose their jobs, to make sure that they are persecuted, to make sure that they may even be burned at the stake. I don’t know what the whole agenda is but it seems to me that this may be a battle between good and evil and evil will not tolerate good. Good may tolerate evil to some extent but I think also we have to draw lines ourselves and encourage the civil magistrate to prosecute homosexuality, especially public acts of homosexuality. When Christians are a little wimpy addressing the issue of homosexuality, get ready friends, Christians will be destroyed by the other side.

    I think that Kevin Swanson is a whiney, insecure little fart. Anytime this big baby doesn’t get his way, people don’t believe like he does or they don’t stone homosexuals like he wants them to, he throws this big hissy fit about Christians being persecuted. I’m so sick of this claim that Christians are being persecuted because this country isn’t the theocracy that they want it to be. That’s bullshit. It is true that Christians and people who practice other religions are being persecuted for their beliefs in other places in the world, (and by that I mean imprisoned, tortured, or killed) but that isn’t happening to the insufferable little twit that is Kevin Swanson.

    I wonder what the Rose Bowl parade would do if we had the beheading of a christian along the parade just as an expression of free speech and all
    that.

    No disrespect intended to Christians who aren’t trying to force their way of life on everyone else, just wonder what Kevin Swanson would think.

  • KarenH

    Swanson would have a massive public orgasm right there, because finally he’d get exactly what he wanted–any evidence at all that Christianity is under persecution.

  • Trollface McGee

    The way they just casually talk about killing a person is sick. Just casually, semi-jokingly talking about a person being stoned to death, and they don’t have any self-awareness to realise how disgusting that is.
    I get worried when I read stuff like this. Legally, it’s less and less possible to discriminate against LGBT people and while there’s always been violence from the anti-gay community, they now have this pathetic persecuted powerless complex.

  • texcee

    Somebody get a shovel. The bullsh*t is getting deep in here.

  • His story talks of stoning, followed by “if we are wimpy, they will destroy us.”

    Some people – and that is not a Jesus-like attitude at all – think of everything in terms of power: Either we destroy them, or they destroy us. Either we are the boot, stomping on faces, or we are the face, stomped on by boots. Either they stone gays, or the gays will destroy them.

    I think it is called projection: Perhaps he ascribe the motives of his own heart to “the gays.”

    (Note: It is not me who call gays one group named “the gays”, it is how I think Swanson possibly thinks.)

  • Catherine

    Because no LGBTQ person was ever persecuted in this country…oh wait.

  • aim2misbehave

    Half of me wants to make a point-by-point takedown of this, but the lazy half of me is just gonna say that if he hasn’t seen any gay people getting stoned with plants at the Rose Parade, he’s just not looking hard enough 😉

  • gimpi1

    If you can’t stone people you disapprove of, you’re being “persecuted.” And if you’re being “persecuted” in this way, it’s just one small step to you being burned at the stake. Oh and by the way, the AIDS Healthcare foundation will be handing out tainted lemonade, to spread AIDS. Wow, these fellows take paranoid to a whole new level.

    I also note the snippy “hairdresser” comment. Way to push the silly stereotyping.

    They managed to get persecution-complex, excluded-middle logic-errors, stereotypical thinking, paranoia and martyrdom-complex all in a few short paragraphs. For near-total crazy, I have to give this 8+ out of a possible 10.

  • texcee

    LOL!

  • Nightshade

    Martyrbating…the perfect word/sniglet!

    Every time I see a photo of Kevin “Womb Tomb” Swanson, I have the same reaction: This guy looks like a high school dork from Central Casting!

    As a former high school dork myself, I keep wondering if we’re seeing a former rejected dorky kid who found himself a position of Power by Divine Right and is throwing his weight around against the Big Bad World that was so mean to him. “I’LL SHOW YOU! NOW I HOLD THE WHIP! IT’S YOUR TURN TO CRAWL!”

  • Headless Unicorn Guy

    Not a person, Trollface.
    An IT.
    Vermin.
    And you know what to do with Vermin.

    When you define something — anything — in terms of Power Struggle, you invoke the Zero Sum Game, where the only way to get more for me is to take it away from you. Because in Power Struggle, there are only two possible end states: My boot stamping on your face or your boot stamping on mine. And the only way to prevent the second is to make sure of the first. Hold the Whip or Feel the Whip, nothing in-between, nothing else.

    Somebody on the Web snarked that “PERSECUTION(TM) means I don’t get to persecute everyone else.” I think that’s the dynamic in play.
