Far-right pastor Kevin Swanson said on his radio program today that Hurricane Harvey is God’s judgment on Houston and other cities that refuse to repent for their embrace of “sexual perversion.”

“Jesus sends the message home, unless Americans repent, unless Houston repents, unless New Orleans repents, they will all likewise perish. That is the message that the Lord Jesus Christ is sending home right now to America.”

Kevin Swanson claims that it is no coincidence that Houston was hit by this storm because “it was persecuting pastors and churches” and recently had “a very, very aggressively pro-homosexual mayor.” On top of that, he said, the Texas legislature recently failed to pass a bill “that would have prevented cross-dressing men from using the women’s restrooms” because “they wanted to encourage the abomination of men attempting to dress like women and women attempting to dress like men.”

Anti-LGBTQ pastor Kevin Swanson is known by calling for the execution of gay people shortly before introducing Ted Cruz to speak back in 2015. In May warned that the goal of public schools is to turn children into “transgender communists.”

Swanson goes to claim that Harvey is now on its way to destroy New Orleans because Southern Decadence starts tomorrow.
