God's wrath

Kevin Swanson, a.k.a. the ‘Poop Pastor,’ says God sent Hurricane Harvey to punish queers

Ugh. Kevin Swanson, the “Christian” pastor who once said he’d rather smear cow manure all over his body rather than attend a gay wedding, claims Hurricane Harvey was a message from God sent to cities across the land that have embraced “sexual perversion.”

Speaking on his crappy online radio show Generations this week, Swanson said:

Jesus sends the message home, unless Americans repent, unless Houston repents, unless New Orleans repents, they will all likewise perish! That is the message that the Lord Jesus Christ is sending home right now to America!

He continued by saying that anyone who doesn’t believe a major weather event is the work of a wrathful higher power is clearly not paying attention. Houston, Swasnon said, was targeted by God for “persecuting pastors and churches.”  Additionally, he warned, the city recently had “a very, very aggressively pro-homosexual mayor.”

I think that the entire state of Texas and the entire United States of America needs to take note of this and realize that there is a God in heaven. He brings His judgments and He calls nations to repentance, as He is doing right now!

Oh, but it doesn’t stop there.

Swanson went on to say that it’s no coincidence the remnants of Hurricane Harvey are headed toward New Orleans just as the city prepares for its annual Southern Decadence festival. This, Swanson claims, is God’s way of giving the city a “head’s up” before it hosts “the largest sexual perversion event in the country.”

“Is anybody paying attention in New Orleans?” he asked. “Unless you repent, you will likewise perish! And repairing your houses in Houston after a hurricane is useless if you’re just going to go to hell!”

Oh no! Not hell!

    Why do these nuts even get their words reported? They are no different than the crazy homeless people screaming at themselves while pushing their shopping cart down the street. No reporters are following them around and printing their insane tirades.

    If their insanity must be shared and reported, at least link it to why there should be better access to mental health services for people like them.

      Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, and Bobby Jindal of the REPUBLICAN party endorsed Swanson’s message and shared a stage with this monster. Never forget this.

    This man believes in mythology, not science. Clearly, he doesn’t understand climate change…

  • Luna1979

    Anybody who follows this nutbucket is incapable of logic. If Harvey was punishment for being gay, then how did churches get flooded? What sin did children and livestock commit? That someone could believe this guy without some kind of logic kicking in within 3 seconds is horrifying.

      These kinds of fundamentalists know the media pretty well. He knows that whatever he says will be published all over. It a ‘free’ way to connect with his followers, and maybe pick up some new ones. They undoubtedly enjoy his rants. An attention getter and grandstander.

      Fundamentalists often quote 2 Chron 7:14…….Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their ‘wicked ways’, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.

      What kind of ‘wicked ways’ that ‘my people’ commit should they turn away from? Namely —
      They should ‘turn from their wicked ways’ of loveless attitudes and comments about the LGBT community.
      If you love those who love you, what reward will you get?…………Matthew 5:46

      You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how will it be made salty again? It is good for nothing anymore, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men………..Matthew 5:13
      Hateful, mean-spirited and scornful public rhetoric by some angry, immature, conservative, fundamentalist Christians is constantly being rejected or ‘thrown out’ and ‘trampled on’ by all sorts of mature minded folks who simply know better.

      Good advice to them —
      Do not be quick with your mouth, do not be hasty in your heart to utter anything before God. God is in heaven and you are on earth, so let your words be few………Ecclesiates 5:2

      Billysees, thanks for this.

    Another NUT trying to use religion to further an agenda that has little to with God.

  • dommyluc

    You see, this is what happens when str8 guys can’t get a decent blowjob from their girlfriends, wives, or mistresses.

  • dommyluc

    I’ll say one thing: God has one wicked sense of humor, considering he sends a hurricane to deep red Texas instead of to the gay fleshpots of NYC or San Francisco. Maybe he’s like most guys and has no sense of direction and refuses to ask for a map.
    I wonder what Swanson will say if Tropical Storm Irma develops into a major hurricane and destroys the pleasure dome of Donald Trump in Florida, Mar-A-Lago?

  • skipvanpelt

    Perhaps, instead of God’s wrath against gays, this storm was meant to punish these right wing nutjobs for being such racist, homophobic assholes. Maybe their hateful attitude to those less unfortunate is what brought on natural disaster. It’s probably much more likely than Swanson’s ignorant bleatings.

    • 1EqualityUSA

      or it could be weather.

  • charlietex

    Well if he was really thinking about it he probably stop to consider why Montrose, the gay district of Houston, was completely spared while miles and miles of suburban conservatives were worst hit

    • 1EqualityUSA

      Charliwtx, Thanks for this!

    • Kangol

      Thanks for that fact, which should be shared widely.

  • Juanjo

    Given that hurricanes have been separating more red necks form their doublewides than divorce for many decades, this preacher has a credibility issue. Now if a volcano erupted in the midst of Houston or a massive earthquake took the city out, not to mention dickwad prophesied it just before it happened, he might be a bit more believable.

  • Kangol

    Wow, a white evangelical Christian nutcase spouting homophobic crap, who’d have ever thought it possible? /snark/

  • jheryn

    As a believer in God I am pretty sure he doesn’t send weather to punish areas of the world as a “message” to other areas of the world.

    Further, I don’t believe God “talks” to this wackjob. How does he think God has given him this “message”. Did a 3×5 card drop from the sky and land on this dude’s lap with the information that he sent it as a punishment?

    I believe God made the world and lets the world do it’s own thing. He let’s us do our own thing as well. We do enough stupid things to ourselves. God doesn’t need to add to our self-inflicted stupidity.
