Wow, I thought televanglists were fucked up, but damn....


Evangelist Jimmy Swaggart apologizes after remark about 'killing' gay men
Gay bashing Christians- LINK
Canadian Press
September 23, 2004


BATON ROUGE, La. (CP) - Evangelist Jimmy Swaggart apologized Wednesday for saying in a televised worship service that he would kill any gay man who looked at him romantically.

A complaint was filed with the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council after the show aired on a Toronto station, and Swaggart said his Baton Rouge-based Jimmy Swaggart Ministries has received complaints from gay groups over the remarks made on the Sept. 12 telecast.

In the broadcast, Swaggart was discussing his opposition to gay marriage when he said "I've never seen a man in my life I wanted to marry."

"And I'm going to be blunt and plain: If one ever looks at me like that, I'm going to kill him and tell God he died," Swaggart said to laughter and applause from the congregation.

On Wednesday, Swaggart said he has jokingly used the expression "killing someone and telling God he died" thousands of times, about all sorts of people. He said the expression is figurative and not meant to harm.

"It's a humorous statement that doesn't mean anything. You can't lie to God - it's ridiculous," Swaggart told The Associated Press. "If it's an insult, I certainly didn't think it was, but if they are offended, then I certainly offer an apology."

Audio recordings of the Sept. 12 statements have circulated on gay-themed websites.

In Ottawa, Ron Cohen, national chair of the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council, confirmed that the complaint was received by the self-regulating industry group after the show was broadcast by OMNI 1 in Toronto.

"We have at least a six-to eight-week period before there's a determination of whether we would go forward because the broadcaster has three weeks to respond to the complaint," he said.

The complainant will then have three weeks to indicate whether he or she is satisfied by the broadcaster's explanation, Cohen explained.

"And then, we determine after that whether it's a matter which would be sent to our adjudication process if the complainant isn't happy."

Cheryl Jacques, head of the Washington, D.C.-based Human Rights Campaign, which represents homosexuals, bisexuals and transgendered people, said Swaggart should preach equality for all Americans.

"Apologies don't discourage violence - action does. We hope that he takes action," Jacques said. "His language only encourages an environment where hate crimes occur."

Swaggart was a popular television evangelist during the 1980s until a 1987 sex scandal involving a prostitute that he met in a seedy New Orleans motel. Swaggart never confessed to anything more than an unspecified sin. A few years later, he was stopped by police while driving in California with a suspected prostitute in his car.

Please don't judge Christians by televangilists. They do not represent Christianity.

I am a Christian and I agree that it is sad. IMO (I don't want to debate this) homosexuality is a sin, but it is only as sin just like the hundreds I commit every day. That is how almost every Christian I know views it so please don't listen to these idiots.

Sounded like a joke to me. A poor one in bad taste but a joke nonetheless.

Can I judge them on GWB then? Thou shalt not kill is pretty big with you guys isnt it? And as far as I can remember the bible doesnt offer any qualifiers like except if they are muslims or anything like that does it?
