Kevin Swanson kicked off his “National Religious Liberties Conference” in Iowa today — which is to feature GOP presidential candidates Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz and Bobby Jindal — with an hour long rant that was every bit as unhinged as one would expect from a radical right-wing preacher who advocates putting gays to death and who thinks that Disney movies are turning young girls into lesbians.
At one point, Swanson fumed about new Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s support for marijuana legalization, declaring that it is all a plot to increase the size of the government.
“This is what liberals do best,” Swanson bellowed. “This is their agenda. They are, by definition, tyrants!”
Later in his sermon, Swanson fumed over the existence of LGBT groups in public schools while waving his Bible over his head and declaring that “I’ve got the authority to bind by the tyrants.”
“Governments achieve power and then they corrupt it,” he stated. “They centralize control and then they turn it towards depravity and perversions … That’s what the liberals do! They centralize the power of the Babel state and they’ve done it again and again and again for 100 years. But why? Why do they do it? They centralize in order to pervert it. They centralize education and before long they’re kicking God out in the 1960s and bringing the [Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network] clubs in … selling the gay and lesbian to as many six- and seven-year-olds as possible.”
