A pastor is worried that people who have sex with animals are going to team up with homosexuals to take over the world.

Pastor Kevin Swanson made the surreal claim on his radio show, following the release of Disney film Beauty and the Beast.

The film came under fire from evangelicals for featuring a minor gay character, but Swanson is also worried about the teenage girl falling in love with a buffalo.

The Colorado pastor raised concerns on Generations Radio, as noted by Right Wing Watch.

He claimed: “This is Disney’s first attempt to bring an explicit homosexual scene into a movie designed for kids.

“The key thing is it was rated PG, here is what makes this so insidious… families walked in to this movie to ensure the entire family was indoctrinated into the homosexual lifestyle at the same time.

“This is how revolutions take place. You are in the middle of a cultural revolution in the United States of America. No, this is not the cultural revolution that Mao Tse-tung brought to China; this is a different kind of cultural revolution, but I’m going to say it’s just about as dangerous… though a bit more insidious.”

Mao was responsible for the deaths of an estimated 45 million people.

Raising the film’s main love story, Swanson continued: “Liberals appear to be okay with inter-species breeding.

“This is not a new thing… apparently these guys are A-OK with it. The evolutionary world view cannot argue against beastiality. It simply cannot take an ethical position against it.

He continued: “Christians, I don’t believe, can allow for this. Humans are made in the image of God. Humans are assigned a spouse which happens to be a member of the opposite sex.

“Friends, God’s law forbids it … Christians should not allow for this, man. We cannot allow for humans to interbreed with other species. It’s just wrong, wrong, wrong. It’s confusion, it’s unnatural.

“We are in some of the most radical, most anti-biblical, the most immoral, the most unethical, the most wicked sexual environment that the world has ever known, right now.”

The Colorado pastor is known for his extreme comments, and Republican Senator Ted Cruz was forced to disavow any links to him last year after attending a rally at which Swanson called for gay people to be put to death.

Cruz had attended the National Religious Liberties Conference, which was organised by Swanson.

At the event, Swanson shouted: “Yes, Leviticus calls for the death penalty for homosexuals! Yes, the Apostle Paul does say that homosexuals are worthy of death! His words, not mine, and [screaming] I AM NOT ASHAMED! I am not ashamed of the truth of the word of God!”

For months Cruz ignored calls to apologise for appearing alongside Swanson – who also claims that parents should drown children who want to read Harry Potter.

However, a Cruz spokesperson did eventually say in a statement: “Senator Cruz is passionate about religious liberties.

“Many respected organizations were sponsoring [the conference], but, given these offensive comments, it was a mistake for Senator Cruz to appear at the event.”
