Olympians reveal their tattoos
Sporting the colors of the country they represent is gratifying enough for most Olympic athletes. For others, an ink gun provides the opportunity to express themselves in a more permanent way. -- By Armando Botello II, Yahoo! Sports

Pastor: Kermit deserves ‘death penalty’ for taking ‘sodomy route’

During his Friday radio broadcast, Kevin Swanson said he wanted to see “Miss Piggy on a bun” because The Muppets had dumped Chick-fil-A after restaurant founder Dan Cathy insisted the company was “guilty as charged” of funding anti-LGBT organizations. 

Um, you know she's a fictional character, right? But if you really want a foam-rubber sandwich that badly, don't let me stop you.

“A Christian perspective ultimately brought the death penalty upon homosexuality between roughly 350 AD and roughly 1850 or so, for about 1,500 years that form of life had pretty much been eliminated except here and there, it was in the closet, but it was almost unheard of for over 1,000 years, until recently,” Swanson explained. 

A Christian perspective? Which Christian perspective would that be? Would that be the "love your neighbor as yourself" perspective? Or the "judge not, lest ye be judged" perspective? Or maybe the "let he who is without sin cast the first stone" perspective? Or maybe you're talking about the perspective based on what Jesus so famously said about the gay people, and I quote: "_________."
What aspect of Christianity do you feel would lead to the practice of murdering people because of whom they find attractive? I think what you go there is an Old Testament perspective, or maybe a Medieval fundamentalist Muslim perpective.

“And Kermit the Frog is not eating Chick-fil-A either,” Swanson continued. “Maybe Dan Cathy should consider doing a frog filet for one of the sandwiches.”

Ooh, yeah! That would show 'em! Take that, ghost of Jim Henson!

“Dave, you know that Sesame Street and the Muppets are going to take the sodomy route,” 


“Dave, you know that Sesame Street and the Muppets are going to take the sodomy route,” he said, adding that the puppets may also support the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA), a pedophilia advocacy group.

Ah, there's the Dickbag Express, right on schedule. Because you can't hate on the gays without accusing them of pedophilia. Nor, apparently, can you hate on anyone who is gay-friendly without accusing them of being pro-pedophilia. Because how else would we know what a colossal  asshole you are?

That big, huh?
