Yeah, remember Obama’s preacher that the rightwing went wacky over?

When they’ve “evolved” and crazy preachers are now “filled with the spirit of religious freedom.”

Rev. Kevin Swanson, who is white, says that gays should be rounded up and executed, women who wear pants cause natural disasters, and that the movie “Frozen” turns girls into lesbians. Now I’m not saying that this guy has an s-e-x problem, but … oh hell, of course he has a s-e-x problem. An enormous one. Colossal. Huuuuge.

He doesn’t seem to mind stealing stuff, or killing people, but damn, you people need to stop thinking about sexy things or we’re all going to hell.

So, those fire and brimstone presidential candidates Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee and Bobby Jindal all march into Rev Swanson’s church and cuddle up to him.

When Ted Cruz asked about associating with this guy, he had a ready answer.

“Listen I don’t know what this gentleman has said and what he hasn’t said. I know that when it comes to religious liberty, this is a passion of mine that has been a passion of mine for decades. And that I have been fighting for religious liberty for everyone…for Christians, for Jews, for Muslims, for every one of us to practice our faith…”

First off, he’s not a gentleman, he’s a jerk. Second off, telling your congregation that certain groups of people should be killed is not any form of religious messaging. Third off, Cruz has not fought for decades or we would have a record of him defending Barack Obama’s religious liberty.

Lying must be okay, too. Just don’t make the unpardonable sin of buying Girl Scout cookies.
