Nebraska right-wing pastor Hank Kunneman delivered a bizarre and vicious sermon this past Sunday attacking the Democratic party, claiming the left is boiling children to be eaten.

This type of sick vitriol is creating an America where radicalized Christians are told to hate and despise anyone that believes differently than they do. Worse yet, it's a blatant and absurd lie told by a person who claims to be filled with the "spirit of God."

Right Wing Watch caught this charlatan for us to see.

“The donkey party of the non-religious affiliation, the anti-Christian movement, the anti-true God movement,” he continued. “Now they’ve gone after the children, and you can have some dude dressed up in a wig and call themselves a woman and read to your children. Hell no! Not in my school and not to my kid. I don’t want no pervert, and I don’t want no pedophile in my school, reading to my kids, and I don’t want their curriculum.”

Homophobic pastors and Fox News hosts are focusing their ire on the LGBTQAI+ community since Republican began their assault in the summer of 2021. Republicans have focused on claiming school teachers are pedophiles forcing your children to change genders.

There is nothing lower than that.

“How many more kids are going to have to be boiled, eaten, because you won’t do anything, pastor, you won’t do anything, Christian, because you don’t want to get involved in politics?” he asked. “So, you think the perverts are going to reform America?"

Children have become their new front of attack and they are as shameless as they are malevolent.

I've been writing about the extreme religious right's attempts to turn this country into a theocracy for almost two decades. Since Trump took office in 2016, evangelical attacks against Democrats and anyone in sync with them has magnified tenfold, becoming darker and meaner, meant to stir violence against others.

These types of horrific rants are delivered throughout the country from pulpits like Kunneman's to podcasts like Stew Peters led by hate-filled Christian nationalists, who view their attacks as a way to gain power and money.
