A US preacher has called for LGBT-inclusive schools to be burned to the ground.

The claim comes from pastor Kevin Swanson.

He was ranting about the new health and physical education standards for schools in Washington state, which suggests pupils should learn about HIV prevention, sexual orientation and gender identity as part of sex education lessons.

US preacher calls for LGBT-friendly schools to be ‘burned to the ground’

Speaking on his radio show, Swanson equated homosexuality to rape, before agreeing with a suggestion that the school should be burnt down.

He said: “I’m going to suggest that there is a connection between sexualised schools, sexualised Governors and sexualised state agencies.

“Sexualised public schools that violate God’s law with high levels of flagrancy, and Governors that violate God’s law with highest levels of flagrancy.

“Today, entire states are defined by homosexuality, adultery, rape, and educating the kids in the sexual confusion of the day, as early as kindergarten.

“The system is wrapped up in chaos, and it’s hardly worth talking about morals when the worst possible abominations are accepted in the state of Washington. It’s affecting public schools, and it’s time to get kids out of the public host.”

His co-host Bill Jack said: “We need to burn them down.”

Swanson agreed: “Get the kids out of the whorehouses! You know, if you transported parents from the 1950s into 2017, they would want to burn these schools down.

Jack added: “They would burn them down. They would tear the bricks out of the walls, the would use the bricks to stone the apostates.”

Swanson also questioned why rape is a crime if homosexuality is not.

He said: “Rape is also against God’s law and I guess it must be against the law… I’m not getting why, though.

“Why in the world is a sexual crime against the law in the state of Washington if the other forms of crimes are not against the law in the state of Washington? See, this is confusing to me.”

Swanson previously claimed public schools will turn kids into “transgender communists”.

The pastor urged people to home-school their kids or send them to evangelical religious schools, because government-run schools will make them “transgender communists”.

He said: “The state has an agenda with your children… I think if you begin to see the trajectory of where things have gone and you just draw it out for the next five, six, eight years, you’re going to find this is the agenda.

“The goals of the educational program for your kids in the public schools… the goals of the world for your children is that your kids be transgendered and communist by 20 years of age.”

Swanson recently claimed that people who have sex with animals are going to team up with homosexuals to take over the world after the release of live-action Disney film Beauty and the Beast.
