‘Stone the apostates’: Pastor linked to Ted Cruz says pro-LGBTQ schools should be burned down

Published

on

On Friday, Christian extremist Pastor Kevin Swanson and his radio co-host called for schools that teach LGBTQ tolerance to be burned down and for the bricks left behind to be used to kill non-Christians.

According to Right Wing Watch, Swanson and co-host Bill Jack were fuming over the fact that public schools in Washington state are now including gender identity issues as part of their comprehensive sex education program for students.

Swanson compared the sex education changes to rape charges that were leveled against an employee of Washington’s Fish and Wildlife Services, saying that exposing children to sex education materials is a crime against God.

“Rape is also against God’s law and I guess it must be against state law; I’m not getting why, though,” Swanson — who in the past has called for the execution of LGBTQ people — said. “Why in the world is a sexual crime against the law in the state of Washington if the other forms of crimes are not against the law in the state of Washington? See, this is confusing to me.”

Swanson called the state’s public schools “whorehouses” and said, “the worst possible abominations are accepted in the state of Washington.”

“We need to burn ’em down,” said Jack.

Swanson said if parents from the 1950s could see what was being taught in schools, they would “want to burn them down.”

“They would burn them down,” Jack said in a musing that sounded like something from the ISIS playbook. “They would tear the bricks out of the walls, they would use the bricks to stone the apostates.”

In the past, Swanson has railed against topics ranging from Disney’s “Frozen” — which he said is “indoctrinating” young women into lesbianism — to the Harry Potter book and film franchise, which he called upon Americans to repent for a fictional character invented by a British novelist.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) crowed triumphantly that he’d secured Swanson’s endorsement as well as the endorsement of North Carolina Pastor Philip Benham, whose campaigns of harassment against federal judges, a transgender teen and other public figures have earned him brushes with the law.

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Monday evening again lashed out at The New York Times for reporting on his Russia policy.

"The story in The New York Times about the U.S. escalating attacks on Russia’s power grid is fake news, and the failing New York Times knows it," Trump argued in a tweet sent after 10 p.m.

"They should immediately release their sources which, if they exist at all, which I doubt, are phony," he continued.

"Times must be held fully accountable," he demanded.

Trouble appears to be brewing between President Donald Trump and the cable news station he loves: Fox News.

In a tweet Monday night, the president lashed out at the network over its polling and called it “fake news’ — an epithet he usually reserves for mainstream outlets:

Media Matters for America Senior Fellow Matthew Gertz, who has previously noted that Trump appears to record news segments and watch them a few hours later, suggested that the president appeared to be reacting to an earlier segment from Special Report with Bret Baier. The segment showed that, even according to Fox News’ polling, Trump trails every single leading candidate in the Democratic field in head-to-head matchups.

The letter, from Jeffrey A. Rosen, Attorney General William P. Barr’s new top deputy, indicated that he was monitoring where Mr. Manafort would be held in New York," the newspaper reported.
