Huckabee, Jindal, Cruz teaming up with 'gays should be thankful for AIDS' pastor

Kevin Swanson
It's not just that rabid anti-lgbt pastor Kevin Swanson made this vile statement above about how gays should be thankful that God punished our community with AIDS. And it's not just that he has made other incredibly vicious comments (catalogued here) about lgbts.

The giant problem is even after all of this is known, Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, and Bobby Jindal will be joining him in a "religious freedom summit" while either the mainstream press won't bat an eye:

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). 

 Or if questioned about it, those three bozos will instantly whine about how they are being "persecuted" because of their Christian faith.

Either conclusion serves to make me nauseous and die a little inside
