A Colorado preacher, known for his controversial opinions, ramped up his anti-gay rhetoric this past week, predicting that same-sex marriage will lead to homeschooled children being sent to live with pedophiles, and implying that members of the gay community will "burn Christians at the stake." During a Jan. 28 segment of his radio program, "Generations With Vision," Kevin Swanson tackled the issue of Colorado's same-sex civil unions bill. The conservative Swanson, who is -- perhaps unsurprisingly -- against same-sex unions, made a number of unconventional claims while he was on the topic. Swanson said he believes America will be a very, very different place in fewer than 10 years. He then outlined a bizarre scenario, in which home-schooled children would be "swooped away" by social services and given to homosexual homes, where he said children might be abused.
