Kevin Swanson is a pastor, home school advocate and radio host known for his vitriol against Gays and everything else the Christian Right demonizes. His broadcast, Generations with Vision is said to have an audience of a hundred thousand listeners.
I know the people at kos have heard it all but the following two quotes from Swanson are as blatant as one could get in calling for all out genocide against the LGBT community.
I'm hard pressed to find anything in the Right Wing blogosphere that's as bad as this.
A Christian perspective ultimately brought the death penalty upon homosexuality between roughly 350 AD and roughly 1850 or so, for about 1,500 years that form of life had pretty much been eliminated except here and there, it was in the closet, but it was almost unheard of for over 1,000 years, until, until recently. Of course, now you have a massive, massive increase in this kind of thing.And this:

...the prosecution of homosexuality, as a general crime, began in the 200s, in the Christian era, when male prostitution was banned by Phillip the Arab. So there was the first, very, very first, Christian law that came into play about 200 years after Christ. So finally start to get some Christian law in place that reigned in this horrible, egregious activity....And what was that "reasonably decent Christian society" during the time period he stated? It was known as the Dark and Middle Ages.
By the end of the 4th century, that is about the 380s, passive homosexuality under the Christian empire was punishable by burning and death by sword was the punishment for a man coupling like a woman under the Theodosian code.
Under Justinian all same sex acts passive or active no matter who the partners were declared contrary to nature and punishable by death. Homosexual behavior was pointed to as causes for God’s wrath following a series of disasters around 542 and 559.
Well that was the end of it for about a thousand years or 1200 years. So we had about 1200 year break where societies were enabled to build up and that’s how you get a reasonably decent Christian society...
