Call for violence: Angry pastor says public schools that teach about gender identity should be burned to the ground because they violate God’s law.
Pastor Kevin Swanson, a man with a reputation for promoting Christian hate against the LGBT community, is once again calling for violence, this time against public schools.
Right Wing Watch reports:
On his radio program today, extremist anti-LGBTQ pastor Kevin Swanson and his co-host Bill Jack declared that “sexualized public schools that violate God’s law with high levels of flagrancy” should be burned to the ground.
Swanson and his co-host are angry because the newly released Washington state health and physical education standards include such topics as HIV prevention, sexual orientation and gender identity.
While discussing the supposed horror of sex education that includes information about HIV prevention, sexual orientation and gender identity, Swanson went on an angry rant, at one point suggesting a moral equivalency between homosexuality and rape. Swanson said:
I’m going to suggest that there is a connection between sexualised schools, sexualised Governors and sexualised state agencies; sexualised public schools that violate God’s law with high levels of flagrancy, and Governors that violate God’s law with highest levels of flagrancy.
Today, entire states are defined by homosexuality, adultery, rape, and educating the kids in the sexual confusion of the day, as early as kindergarten.
The system is wrapped up in chaos, and it’s hardly worth talking about morals when the worst possible abominations are accepted in the state of Washington. It’s affecting public schools, and it’s time to get kids out of the public host.
We need to burn them down.
Swanson said he agreed, declaring:
Get the kids out of the whorehouses! You know, if you transported parents from the 1950s into 2017, they would want to burn these schools down.
Swanson is no stranger to controversy, or calls to violence. Last year the angry pastor called for the execution of Girl Scout leaders because they promote homosexuality.
And in 2015, at the “National Religious Liberties Conference,” an event attended by numerous 2016 GOP presidential hopefuls, the controversial pastor called for the execution of all gays and lesbians.
