Cruz, Huckabee and Jindal Will Join Pastor Who Wants to Execute Gays

Bad craziness
Far right pastor Kevin Swanson

Lovely. Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee and Bobby Jindal have all confirmed they’ll be speaking at the “National Religious Liberties Conference” next month, organized by a crazed extremist pastor who advocates executing gay people. Ben Carson may also be there, although he’s not listed in the group’s press release.

The organizer of the “National Religious Liberties Conference” in Des Moines, Iowa, announced today that Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee and Bobby Jindal have committed to speaking at the summit, which will take place next month. One speaker at the conference, Iowa radio host Steve Deace, has said that Ben Carson has also RSVP’d for the event, although Carson’s name was not included in today’s press release.

Kevin Swanson, the conference’s chief organizer, is a far-right pastor and host of the “Generations Radio” program, on which he has frequently claimed that the government should put gay people to death, warned that the Girl Scouts and the movie “Frozen” turn girls into lesbians and blamed natural disasters on gay people and women who wear pants. (Update: Swanson is not the only activist speaking at the conference who backs the death penalty for homosexuality).

We have documented Swanson’s radical record in great detail, including his tirades against William Shakespeare, Mark Twain, Abraham Lincoln, Desmond Tutu and Taylor Swift.
