During his radio program, Kevin Swanson, a Christian pastor, talked about the Muppets and homosexuality.
He said that for awhile "the Christian perspective" brought the death penalty for homosexuality and so that "form of life" had been eliminated more or less until recently, which has seen a "massive increase in this kind of thing".
He then went onto say that the Muppet characters Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy deserve the same for dissociating themselves with Chick-Fil-A because of the company's anti-gay stance, that they are taking the "sodomy route", and probably support pedophilia advocacy groups too.
Speaking as a member of the LGBT community, I am greatly offended and saddened that an individual would compare being gay to pedophilia and would speak on it as if we all deserve the death penalty for being who we are. Please tell Kevin Swanson that this is offensive and that Kermit doesn't deserve death for supporting LGBT rights!
I am writing to you today because of comments you made concerning the Muppets and homosexuality.
You spoke on homosexuality as if the death penalty was warranted for it like it was "for awhile" from the "Christian perspective" and then said that the Muppet characters Kermit and Miss Piggy deserved the same for leaving Chick-Fil-A over its anti-gay stance. You also said that they probably support pedophilia advocacy groups too and are taking the "sodomy route".
As an LGBT individual, I am saddened and offended my your comments. We are just being who we are.
Thank you for your time.
