Pastor Kevin Swanson of Generations with Vision Ministry claimed last week that homosexuality “destroys nations.”

Swanson lamented the election of Jackie Biskupski, Salt Lake City's first openly gay mayor.

Biskupski will lead the city which the Mormon Church calls home.

Swanson denounced Mormonism as a “sham religion” and said that Biskupski's election shows that homosexuality is just “the tip of the iceberg” while other sins such as child molestation and porn addiction “hide under the water.”

“It's also interesting that the current mayor of Salt Lake City, Ralph Becker, is also pro-homosexual,” Swanson said. “And he's attending The Economist magazine's Pride and Prejudice conference in March of next year.”

“Sure enough, the bastion of conservativism is ultimately the place at which the future of this nation is being eroded in the most fundamental sense.”

“[The Economist] wants to be that edgy, progressive organization that promotes the homosexuality in the business world and the very thing that will destroy nations,” he continued. “People don’t believe that homosexuality will be the catalyst by which nations are destroyed, because they don’t believe that God exists and they don’t believe God is judge and they don’t believe that God has the right to determine right and wrong, good and evil as he does in the word of God.”
