Kevin Swanson Blames Larry Nassar Sexual Assault Scandal On The Fact That Gymnastics ‘Involves A Fair Amount Of Immodesty’.
But Christians don’t blame the victims and Pastors don’t lie. So Swanson isn’t a Christian or a Pastor.
On his radio program today, extremist anti-LGBTQ pastor Kevin Swanson attributed USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar’s sexual abuse of more than 150 women and girls he treated, in part, to the fact that gymnastics encourages “a fair amount of immodesty.”
Citing a variety of supposed dangers, such as the use of open showers, Swanson warned Christian parents against allowing their children to participate in sports because “sports tend to focus on the body.”
“There is an infatuation with the body,” he said, “and, of course, the sexual aspects of the body as well. Some sports encourage immodesty, revealing large portions of the body and this happens in some sports. These are the risky sports. Here they are, what are the risky sports? Gymnastics. Gymnastics and swimming. These are the sports in which there is an added risk.”
“Why are all of the gymnasts [at] more of a risk than other sports?” Swanson asked. “Do you really want your daughters involved in a sport that involves a fair amount of immodesty in which red-blooded American male coaches are interacting with these girls? Or, worse yet, where the infatuation of the body eventually effects the lesbian coaches?”
Swanson credited the “providence of God” for bringing to light the revelations about Nassar because “God is not going to put up with 20 years of this.”
The real mystery is why God allows these people to preach.
