Cruz Spoke at Christian Conference Where Pastor Who Called for Gays to Be EXECUTED Introduced Him

When you’re running for political office, it’s important to be careful who you associate with. A pastor who advocates for the executions of gays and lesbians is a pretty good example of someone you shouldn’t be spending time with.

Ted Cruz spoke at a Christian conference in November where a pastor advocated forcefully for the executive of gays and lesbians – and then cheerfully introduced the Texas senator.

The National Religious Liberties Conference in Iowa is the brainchild of Kevin Swanson, a Colorado pastor and radio host.

‘Yes, Leviticus 20:13 calls for the death penalty for homosexuals,’ Swanson boomed onstage at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines.

‘Yes, Romans chapter 1, verse 32 – the Apostle Paul does say that homosexuals are worthy of death. His words not mine!’

‘And I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!’ Swanson continued, more and more feverish. ‘And I am not ashamed of the truth of the word of God. And I am willing to go to jail!’

Swanson allowed that the time for mass-slayings of gay men and women had ‘not yet’ arrived, but his meaning was grasped by a cheering throng.

It’s important to note that while Ted Cruz spoke at the conference, he did not say that he agreed with or condoned Swanson’s remarks. He also wasn’t the only Republican presidential hopeful there, so to single him out isn’t really a fair reporting on the situation.
