A Christian pastor recently recalled a time when “a Christian perspective ultimately brought the death penalty upon homosexuality” and suggested that Muppet characters Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy deserved the same for breaking with Chick-fil-A over the company’s opposition to LGBT rights.
During his Friday radio broadcast, Kevin Swanson said he wanted to see “Miss Piggy on a bun” because The Muppets had dumped Chick-fil-A after restaurant founder Dan Cathy insisted the company was “guilty as charged” of funding anti-LGBT organizations.
“A Christian perspective ultimately brought the death penalty upon homosexuality between roughly 350 AD and roughly 1850 or so, for about 1,500 years that form of life had pretty much been eliminated except here and there, it was in the closet, but it was almost unheard of for over 1,000 years, until recently,” Swanson explained. “Of course, now you have a massive, massive increase in this kind of thing.”
“It’s pretty obvious to anyone who’s on looking that tolerance only runs one direction, you only can tolerate gays, you can’t tolerate those who don’t support gays,” co-host Dave Buehner observed.
“And Kermit the Frog is not eating Chick-fil-A either,” Swanson continued. “Maybe Dan Cathy should consider doing a frog filet for one of the sandwiches.”
“Dave, you know that Sesame Street and the Muppets are going to take the sodomy route,” he said, adding that the puppets may also support the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA), a pedophilia advocacy group.
“I don’t think the frog filet will sell, just a little marketing advice, I think Miss Piggy on a bun, that’s a better bet, the winner,” Buehner suggested.
“Miss Piggy on a bun, that sounds good, a fried pig on a bun,” Swanson agreed.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez chokes up responding to Trump: ‘Time to move on from his conception of America’
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Monday fired back at President Donald Trump after he told her to "go back" to her country of origin -- even though she was born in the U.S.
"It's unfortunate that he feels the way he feels about people of color," Ocasio-Cortez explained to NBC News. "It's unfortunate the way he feels about immigrants, naturalized citizens or not."
"What I would tell him is that it's time to move on from him," she continued as she seemed to choke up. "And it's time to move on from his conception of an America that we tried to move past for a long time."
Schumer: If Trump can’t handle a little criticism from Fox News then ‘he doesn’t deserve to be president’
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Tuesday suggested that Donald Trump "doesn't deserve to be president" if he can't handle criticism from Fox News.
In a speech on the Senate floor, Schumer noted that Trump recently lashed out at Fox News soon after the conservative network aired World Cup viewers chanting "f*ck Trump."
"I just felt it was important to point President Trump amazingly attacked Fox News in the last few days in a series of Tweets for coverage he viewed as unfavorable to his administration," Schumer said. "This is Fox News, a news outlet that frankly is 90% or more on the president’s side. Their most popular shows seem to just be cheerleaders for President Trump."
Marine Corps band forced to perform in pouring rain before sparse crowd prior to Trump’s July 4th party
In a video posted to Twitter several hours before Donald Trump is scheduled to launch his "Salute to America" Fourth of July party, the Marine Corps band was compelled to perform in the pouring rain before a sparse crowd of early attendees and media awaiting the main event.
According to Jim Spellman of CTGN, the sky opened with a deluge of rain that had people running for cover -- only for the military musicians to be paraded out for either a rehearsal or a time-consuming filler until the big show begins.
Earlier in the day, the National Park Service warned that the event could be rained out, with thundershowers moving swiftly into the area.
