Pro-Trump pastor Kevin Swanson blamed California’s wildfires on the state’s LGBTQ rights.
Swanson, a pastor at Colorado’s Reformation Church and the host of the “Generations With Kevin Swanson” radio show, blamed the fires that have already killed nine people on California for “legitimizing the sin of homosexuality.”
“The first gay pride march occurred in San Francisco in 1970, and then San Francisco legitimized homosexuality in 1972,” Swanson said. “In 2005, California state legislators became the first in the nation to pass a same-sex marriage law … In 2008, the California Supreme Court then struck down Prop 22 in regard to marriage cases, and Prop 8 also was struck down later on that year, I believe.”
“So God is burning down California in 2017 and 2018 after about 25 years of leading the pack to legitimize the sin of homosexuality in that state,” he said.
Swanson, a staunch Trump supporter, argued during that 2016 campaign that Hillary Clinton would turn children gay if she won.
