Pastor Kevin Swanson: Homosexuality ‘destroys civilizations,’ must be punished

BRIAN TASHMAN | Right Wing Watch
Thursday, April 25, 2013

Pastors Kevin Swanson and Dave Buehner have long warned that homosexuality is responsible for natural disasters and that the US government should follow Uganda and “remove the abomination from the land” before it destroys people and society itself.

Kevin Swanson

So we were not surprised when they kicked off Generations Radio this week by condemning pastor Rob Bell and the government of New Zealand for endorsing marriage equality.

In fact, Swanson said that people should scratch New Zealand off their lists of places to turn to in case America falls apart since by legalizing same-sex marriage they will now face divine wrath.

As it turns out what works for Rob Bell is also what destroys civilizations and brings God’s judgment down upon civilizations.

I know it’s really hard for some people to understand but if he did it in the Old Testament he is going to do it in the New Testament as well friends because God is the same God of judgment, the same God that holds nations to accountability and of course calls them to repentance as well and he holds them to tighter accounts on that repentance, according to the Apostle Paul on Mars Hill.

By the way, New Zealand also has just legalized same-sex marriage so this thing is spreading all around the world today. There will be some nations better than others and New Zealand will not be one of them, friends. I’ve heard people talk about how wonderful New Zealand is and maybe we should all move to New Zealand, I’m sorry, New Zealand has also legalized same-sex marriage and has gone the way of America effectively.

The pair agreed that homosexuality at the very least should be criminalized and maybe even made into a capital crime since the Old Testament “says that homosexuals should be put to death.”

Buehner criticized Bell along with Tim Keller, who said that while he opposes gay marriage he does not consider it a sin to support its legalization, telling them that “not only is homosexuality a sin but it’s a crime” and Christians cannot “in any way cooperate with the committing of a crime against the law of God.”

Swanson: I would say the general equity of a law in the Old Testament that says that homosexuals should be put to death would be to frown on homosexuality.

Buehner: To frown?

Swanson: At least, at least to frown.

Buehner: Before you throw the stone?

Swanson: At the very, very, very least you would hope that somebody would get some kind of a moral directory, a trajectory towards a negative approach to handling homosexuality on the part of the civil magistrate. I hope that somebody would get that out of some of these Old Testament laws.

Buehner: So to Mr. Keller and to Mr. Bell and to many others who are saying these sorts of things, I would say not only is homosexuality a sin but it’s a crime. The general equity requires that it still be a crime; the moral law requires that it still be listed as a crime ergo Christians should in no way give any kind of endorsement, support candidates who give endorsement or in any way cooperate with the committing of a crime against the law of God. God’s law is law, God has the authority, he gives his authority to civil magistrates to execute his law; this is outside, against and opposed to God’s law.

Swanson: If there will be Christianity extant in the year 2060 friends somebody is going to have to be rooted and grounded to the rock solid foundations of God’s laws, otherwise they’re going to be blown about with every political position that comes around that is out to destroy our civilizations as we know it.

    If anything, gay people make civilization more livable.

  44. Maybe if this clown spent more time getting to know the gay community instead of locking himself in a room humping his bible, he’d actually realize how stupid he really sounds. It’s creeps like him that bring on the hate agenda. Religion never made any sense to me. It just divides us all.

  47. I agree.

    Religion gives people so many excuses to treat other people poorly.

    When everything is “God’s will” or “God’s plan for us” then no one has to be civil or do anything to solve problems.

    All the manner of evils such as poverty, homophobia, abuse, sexism, classism, racism, and countless others are OK because those people who suffer at the hands of their fellow man are “sinners” and unworthy of God’s love.

  58. Homosexuality has been recorded throughout history. Pre-Christian era even noted that homosexuality was almost considered normal in some regards among several cultures and many of these cultures remain standing to this very day. The only thing that changed over history was that a mainstream religious group made claims about the life styles of others that were not necessarily true.

  64. C’mon guys…he’s probably Southern Baptist based, and they DO NOT KNOW HOW TO READ THE ENTIRE BIBLE! They were only taught a few passages, and then their ignorance grew. SBC thinks that they can all SIT IN JUDGEMENT of the rest of the world. No one has told them that they are NOT our moral compasses. It’s best if we just pat this guy on his fuzzy little head and send him into the back woods of Arkansas and let him do a little rafting (does Deliverance sound familiar?) and perhaps some boys will think he has a “purty little mouth” and they will teach him to “squeal like a pig.” OINK OINK

  76. I agree as well. People take religion to a unhealthy level and because of that, they start to attack others who don’t live or act like they do. We are all God’s children and he loves us all no matter what others say about it.

  80. But the reality of it, is America is falling very far away from the church. We are not telling our kids how to think, we are giving them the fundamentals to think for themselves. As for this man, he is spreading hate, and bigotry. What makes it worse is when they’re given media attention it sends them on a high. If we all ignored them. They would have no power over anyone but themselves.

  83. hhmmmm well considering churches are cults and most people are homophobic the only one that judge us for our sins is jesus cause the way i see i you either pray and love jesus or you pray and love satan nobody cant judge us or other countries because of someones spiritual beliefs and opinions these people should really read the revelations of the kjv bible cause their bible is false like jehovah witnesses their really isnt aright religion except to believe and pry to jesus go jesus go :)

  110. It has come to my attention that some people in this world will find reason to blame everything on one particular people. In essence, because it makes their point easier to convey. Let me make a reference; Hitler. What did he do? He rallied the Germans together in a time of great weakness by pinpointing certain individuals. If we allow people to continue on this path of disreputable destruction towards humans, then what do we have to say for ourselves? That we are just as foolish as the Germans who blindly followed Hitler? You can never pinpoint where the error comes from because there is never merely one person to blame for catastrophic events. It’s profiling, and just so you know, it illegal.

  130. A Born-Again Christian’s Take On Sodom and Gomorrah and How it is (mis) Used

    I read the Bible on a daily basis and have done so for a little more than 40 years. Naturally, I have come across the story of Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19:1 – 29) a number of times. After some careful consideration, I have come to the conclusion that this story is rife with misinterpretation. Here is my own view: Sodom and Gomorrah were pagan cities whose inhabitants worshipped particularly evil idols. God was angry enough with them for that, but the last straw for Him was when the entire male population of those cities gathered at Lot’s home with idea of raping the two male strangers he had taken in. This violated two Middle Eastern traditions: (1) the people of Sodom and Gomorrah failed to show hospitality to strangers (which Lot had observed when he insisted they not spend the night in the street) and (2) protecting houseguests from harm, even at the risk of their own lives (this was considered such a sacred duty that Lot was obliged by tradition to offer his daughters to the mob rather than allow them to harm his guests. Yes, by rights he should have offered himself, but Lot was an exceedingly fearful man; even when he was finally made to understand that the strangers were actually angels sent by God to destroy the two cities, he was too afraid to heed their instructions to flee to the mountains, begging instead to be allowed to go to a small city nearby). This would tell me that God gets a lot angrier about rape than he does about gay people; after all, the Bible says “God is angry with the wicked every day,” not “God is angry with the gay every day.” Next, the fact that the Bible tells us how ALL the males of Sodom and Gommorrah had gathered at Lot’s place to rape his guests does NOT mean that every male in those two cities was gay. There had to be women in that society; there have to be women in EVERY society, or there would be no men (who’s going to give birth, in other words), and there had to be heterosexual men there as well (otherwise…well, you know). Now, we know that rape is an act of violence and control, not an act of sex; therefore, the intent was to use the violence of rape to show the angels – and Lot – that they, not God, were in charge. This is something that never works out well for anyone who challenges the supreme authority of God. Nor was this a sexually promiscuous society since, if it had been, the entire population of the two cities, male and female, would have come out to “know” Lot’s guests. No, this was a brutal society where the men were in charge and where rape was commonly used as a form of control. So, essentially, God destroyed two cities not because they were gay enclaves, but because they were places where rape was used as a regular form of intimidation. Now, if today’s self-styled “men of God” really want to follow His example, they should be advocating the denial of basic civil liberties like marriage to rapists, not gay people. And, P.S., just in case you were wondering about the rape part, statistics supplied by that ultra-leftist organization known as the FBI state that homosexual rape is extremely rare outside of prison.

  136. Atheism is not new: the ancient Greeks knew it well, and in the 1600s Bacon said “a little philosophy inclineth a man’s mind to atheism, But depth in philosophy bringeth men’s mind about to religion.” What is new about atheism’s current incarnation is its increasing virulence and disrespect for other ways of thinking. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/rory-fitzgerald/richard-dawkins-should-be_b_541387.html
