In case you haven’t heard, the financial markets have been a little shaky in recent weeks. And right-wing pastor Kevin Swanson knows why: Gay people. Specifically, a bisexual economist from Britain who’s been dead for 70 years.
John Maynard Keynes was a highly regarded British financial expert who helped shape modern economics as we know them today. He was also bisexual, which Swanson, who once threatened to smear poop all over himself if his son ever married a man, considers to be the same thing as gay. And because of this, the pastor feels Keynes’ ideas should not be taken seriously, lest they result in the world ending.
While speaking on his “Generations Radio” program this week, Swanson predicted that people will look back on America generations from now and realize that the country was completely destroyed by Keynes, who died in 1946, and the ideas thought up in his gay brain.
“It will be interesting to know that a homosexual ruined the world,” Swanson said. “Somebody will indeed write the story about this in the year 2060 or 2070, no doubt. This will be the great exposé of how the world economies came down all because of a homosexual who was promiscuous.”
But not just promiscuous, Swanson added, Keynes was “perhaps one of the most wicked, flagrantly licentious men who has lived in the modern world.”
“It makes a lot of sense,” Swanson babbled on. “Sexual nihilism, of course, will produce sexual burnout, and that must be tied to economic burnout and epistemological burnout as well when societies lose the will to live!”
Yes, you read that correctly, folks. Entire civilizations will essentially kill themselves because of one man who happened to have sex with another man sometime during the first half of the 20th century.
The obvious follow-up question to Swanson’s argument, of course, is: How will people even be able look back in the year 2060 or 2070 if humanity has been obliterated?
