  • Christian Pastor Says Gays 'Worthy Of Death' At Conference With 3 GOP Presidential Candidates

    Three presidential candidates delivered speeches to evangelical Christians today on the same stage where  a Christian pastor calls for gays to be executed.

    It's not like Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, and Ted Cruz were unaware that the man who created and is hosting Freedom 2015 has advocated for gay to be executed. Pastor Kevin Swanson has a startling history of making such statements. Even ABC News' Jake Tapper Thursday night in an interview cornered Cruz on Swanson's beliefs – Cruz wriggled out of answering the question.

    So today, Pastor Swanson took to the stage and told attendees once again that gays should be killed. Twice, according to Right Wing Watch.

    "There are instances in which both the Old and New Testament speak to the matter with unbelievable clarity," Swanson told his audience of evangelical Christians, as Joe.My.God. reports. "There's not to be any debate about it. You know what that sin is – it’s the sin of homosexuality."

    "In fact in Romans 1 Paul affirms that this particular sin is worthy of death," Swanson says. "The Old and New Testament, I believe both speak with authority and we outta receive it."

    To be clear, Huckabee, Jindal, and Cruz aren't responsible for Swanson's statements. But they are responsible for agreeing to attend and speaking at an event created and hosted by a man with a history of calling for gays to be put to death.

      Did something get by me here? This guy didn’t come out for killing gays in this clip. He just told his audience what different writers in the Bible said about homosexuality.

      Can somebody please put up the video where this scumbag calls for killing gays, right here, right now, instead of just reading the Bible on the subject? We know he’s itching to kill them so it should be easy to find the evidence. Just posting videos of the guy reading the Bible isn’t gonna cut it.

      Let’s see his “kill the homos” sermon. It must be a available somewhere. Put it up.

      Wow, just as God´s words are only the reason for the season and could be understood as individual wishes. God had seen it all in His Holiness and life on planet earth is focused to one conclusion only; Paradise on Earth. (Ezekiel 35:35-36) It is us the people who have postponed this Eden to be established. The word of God is eternal as written by the prophets,

      ”The Lord Almighty has sworn,
      “Surely, as I have planned, so it will be,
      and as I have purposed, so it will happen.”
      Isaiah 14:24.

      Religions have no authority to interpret the Bible and now, humanity must suffer the curse of God (Deuteronomy 11:26-28, 28:58-61) because these religious preachers and theologians added their own teachings in the scriptures (mostly Jesus and Mohammad, also Jewish scribes).
      God gave a warning:

      ”I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll.” Revelation 22:18

      Very clear and God promised to send us one man, who will clean up the now prevailing religious mess with his Bible-revelations from God Himself:

      “I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their fellow Israelites, and I will put my words in his mouth. He will tell them everything I command him. 19 I myself will call to account anyone who does not listen to my words that the prophet speaks in my name.”
      Deuteronomy 18:18-19 NIV

      And the last prophet like Moses of God, Maestro Evangelista emphasized that as based on what God Himself said in Isaiah 56 verses 4 to 8, it is not entirely true that our gay and lesbian friends has no place in the sight of our Lord God. They are special to Him that they are privileged to be granted by God a memorial or renown far greater than us ordinary men and women should they choose to LOVE HIS TRUE NAME and hold fast to His commandments.

      Be reminded; this is not promoting a new religion, only to inform you. It is up to he/she if listen to or not. This man is a foreigner as prophesied in 1 Kings 8:41-43 not a Jew. The man God promised to send is (late) Maestro Teacher Evangelista of www.thename.ph or www.thenameonline.info

      Leviticus 19:19 …Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material. I would bet you money Kevin Swanson is doing that and probably everyone in the audience…but that’s ok, because they like to pick and choose what’s a sin.

      Shouldn’t this legally classify this pastor’s church a hate group? A petition needs to be made.

      It’s time U.S. citizens band together and call for pulling the tax exempt status of this group, Franklin Graham and other groups who advocate violence and discrimination in the name of their religion. I see no difference between them and terrorists

      At what point does free speech end and a crime begin. This guy is advocating murder and THAT isn’t protected speech.
