It’s as false of a tabloid headline as you can get……
I’m losing respect for the supposed alternative media in their mad dash to ram their heads up Trump’s fat rear end. This headline is pure bullcrap, and the blog that wrote it, as well as Matt Drudge himself who promoted it, need to apologize to the pastor that they’re smearing. It’s all done with political motives to tar and feather Ted Cruz. The pseudo-conservatives are in full blather mode to hype Trump at all costs.
Context: Romans 1:18-32 describes the sins of mankind, and how they’ve fallen short of the glory of God, yes, and it includes homosexuality. That unless they repent, they will face God’s judgement (in the afterlife, not here on earth).
24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips,30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
In November Senator Ted Cruz appeared at the National Religious Liberties Conference in Iowa, where he courted the support of the conference’s organizer, Colorado-based pastor and radio host Kevin Swanson.
Cruz was introduced on the stage by Pastor Kevin Swanson – after he called for the execution of gays at the conference.
