During a recent broadcast of his “Generations Radio” program, anti-gay activist Kevin Swanson suggested that God created HIV/AIDS to punish gay people. And, he says, that’s a good thing.
Discussing a World magazine story that addressed the treatment of people with HIV/AIDS, Swanson claimed that gay people receive far too much aid from the government, and that they’re “especially favored by the government and given a fair amount of support for their homosexual activity and the disease that seems to accommodate their activity.”
He then said that HIV/AIDS is ““God’s retribution to their sexual habit,” and that the disease is a sign of “God’s kindness,” since it gives gays time to meditate on past indiscretions, renounce homosexuality, and be spared burning in hell for all eternity.
