Pastor who supports death penalty for gays says America must repent for Dumbledore’s sexuality

By Shaun Kitchener

At the National Religious Liberties Conference in Iowa, fun-time organiser Pastor Kevin Swanson warned via the medium of shouting that America will pay for Dumbledore – a fictional wizard in a British set of kids’ books – being gay.

He also fired warning shots over the animated movies How To Train Your Dragon and Disney’s Frozen, both of which are apparently turning young girls gay.


He yelled: “America, repent of your rebellion against God! America, repent of stumbling the little ones! America, repent of Harry Potter! America, repent of How to Train Your Dragon!”

This is becoming quite the extensive list of things to repent for.

He went on: “America, repent that Dumbledore emerged as a homosexual mentor for Harry Potter, that Hiccup’s mentor in How to Train Your Dragon emerged as a homosexual himself in order that history might repeat itself one more time, in order that little six- and seven- and eight-year-olds might stumble, in order that tens of millions of parents, it would be better for them that a millstone be hanged around their neck and they be drowned at the bottom of the sea than that there would be so many people stumbling so many children in public schools, in movie theaters, in homes in which children are raised to be stumbled by the Dumbledores and by the mentors of Hiccup in How to Train Your Dragon!”

Seems legit.

“Friends, if God won’t judge this nation, he’ll need to apologise to Sodom and Gomorrah,” he concluded.

This is the same guy who had earlier said that he wants gays to have the chance to repent before being put to death. Very generous.

TL;DR: Repent.
