People With Bible-Verse Posters Welcome at Heathen Solstice Party

Generations Radio host Kevin Swanson, whose right-wing show originates in Colorado's Elbert County, is praising Elbert County Clerk Dallas Schroeder for hanging a poster in his government office with a quote from the Bible, "Each man should have his own wife and each woman should have her own husband."

Schroeder has apparently removed the poster from his office, after local residents complained.

"If you come anywhere close to a heathen sacrifice, a heathen temple, or a heathen ceremony, much of which is represented by the modern pagan state,  and that is homosexual weddings, you ought to at least make it clear that you are not implicitly or explicitly approving of the idolatrous practice," Swanson told his listeners during a podcasted show Thursday (at about 15 minutes). "And using a Bible verse would be a good way to do that."

With his poster, Schroeder apparently wanted to wipe his conscience clean of any responsibility for the same same-sex marriage license issued by his office, according to a report by KMGH-TV in Denver, Denver's ABC affiliate.

"My thought process is that they have to see the poster," writes Schroeder in the email obtained by the TV station.  "And if they choose to violate God's written Word, then that is on their head."

That's in line with the beliefs of radio host Swanson, who I've called a shock pastor in the past, due to his string of extreme statements, based on his take on the scripture.

"This guy is kind of following through on the principle that I have brought out a number of times on this radio broadcast concerning the question, 'Should a Christian attend a homosexual wedding?'" Swanson said on air last week. "And I have said 'yes' as long as you hold up a Bible verse [opposing same-sex marriage]."

I won't be holding up a Bible quote at the heathen solstice party I'm attending tonight, fyi. But if Swanson comes, and he wants to peacefully carry around a quotation on a poster or something, that's fine with me. In fact, he'd fit right in, because people bring strange things to the party. But, please, keep such signs out our government buildings.
