Fundamentalist preacher Jimmy Swaggert issues death threats and compares homosexual marriage to marrying a pig before his congregation and a national TV audience earlier this week.



By Michael Castellano

BATON ROUGE, LA
With a snearing chuckle followed by a display of contempuous anger, fundamentalist preacher Jimmy Swaggert promised to kill any gay man who looked at him the wrong way and then lie about it to god.


"If one of them ever looks at me like that I'll kill him and tell god he died."

Strutting around the blood-red carpeted stage like a peacock and breathing heavily, sixty-nine year-old Swaggert's exact words were: "I've never seen a man in my life that I wanted to marry . . . . I'm going to be blunt . . . If one of them ever looks at me like that I'll kill him and tell god he died."

Swaggert went on to further ridicule homosexuals, leading an enthusiastic crowd of adoring worshippers in a chant of "It's an abomination . . . it's an abomination . . . it's an abomination . . ." Less than a minute later, he praised President Bush for supporting the Family Marriage Amendment, a Republican backed federal constitutional amendment which if passed would upsurp states rights over marriage contracts, and prohibit both same sex marriages and civil unions in all 50 states regardless of existing state laws. Said Swaggert, "I thank god that President Bush has stated we need a Constitutional Amendment that states that marriage is between a man and a woman."

"They Ought to Marry a Pig"
Predicably, after threatening to kill homosexuals an unconvincing Swaggert told the crowd, "I'm not knocking the poor homosexuals. I'm not. They need salvation like anybody else." But less we all think that Jimmy had gone soft on homosexuals, he hastened to play the beastiality card by adding that, "They ought to have to marry a pig and live with him forever."


"Swaggert asked me 'if she'd ever let anyone screw my daughter when she was that young.'"

Swaggert's anti-homosexual tirades were followed by a tirade against judges and courts who have ruled in favor of gay rights and gay marriage and choruses of "praise Jesus." Other than his constant panting and heavy breathing, perhaps the most peculiar thing observed in watching Swaggert's 56 minute performance was his compulsive habit of wiping his nose with a handkerchief. Such behavior is often seen in cocaine addicts suffering from badly irritated or damaged nasal membranes from snorting the substance.

"She's Only Nine Years Old"
Swaggert, a cousin of the famous singer Jerry Lee Lewis, is perhaps best remembered for his arrest with a prostitute in 1991, and for the Penthouse expose in 1988 in which a woman he was alleged to have had an extramarital affair with claimed that Swaggert asked her "if she'd ever let anyone screw my daughter when she was that young, and she said, 'No, She's only nine years old.'"


"Armageddon is coming. My Lord! I am happy... I donít care who it bothers. I donít care who it troubles. It thrills my soul."

Swaggert is also remembered for a sermon in delivered in which he predicted, "I believe Armageddon is coming, Armageddon is coming. It is going to be fought in the valley of Megiddo. It is coming. They can sign all the peace treaties they want. They wonít do any good... It is going to get worse... My Lord! I am happy... I donít care who it bothers. I donít care who it troubles. It thrills my soul."
