Asked America to “repent that Dumbledore emerged as a homosexual mentor for Harry Potter.” In the same speech, Swanson said that although the biblical punishment for homosexuality is death, he’d rather Americans have time to repent before such a sentence is delivered to gay people.

Endorsed the death penalty for gay people.

Believes God sent a hurricane to Houston, TX, in order to punish the city for “sexual perversion.”

—Said people should attend gay weddings and tell the participants they are marked for death: “Attend the wedding and hold up the sign Leviticus 20:13 word for word: ‘If a man sleeps with a man as he sleeps with a woman the two of them have committed an abomination and they shall both be put to death.’ You could attend a wedding and hold up that sign.” 

—Suggested country artist Kacey Musgraves would’ve been killed in the past for singing a pro-gay song and lamented the change: “If she had sang [sic] that thing in a country bar in the 1920s or 1880s in Denver, Colorado, somebody would’ve called for a rope.... She would not have made it out of town. In the 1880s, 1920s, 1940s or the 1960s. But things have changed my friends.”

—Claimed homosexuality is “dry rot” that always destroys civilizations.

—Claimed the Disney movie Frozen is indoctrinating kids into both homosexuality and bestiality.

—Equated pro-gay law with child sex abuse (“Jerry Sandusky would appreciate this law”); in same segment, went on to equate homosexuality with cannibalism and ax murder.

—Again equates same-sex love with cannibalism: “See the problem with this ‘love’ thing is you can define it anyway you want. Homosexuals love their friends and cannibals love their victims, they taste good. 

—Went after singer Carrie Underwood for supporting equality, calling her support “disgusting.”
