An Apology from Jimmy

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2004 | Gay Stuff

So now it looks like our pal Jimmy has decided to apologize:

(09-22) 12:45 PDT BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) —

Evangelist Jimmy Swaggart apologized Wednesday for saying in a televised worship service that he would kill any gay man who looked at him romantically.

I think my favorite part is this though:

On Wednesday, Swaggart said he has jokingly used the expression “killing someone and telling God he died” thousands of times, about all sorts of people. He said the expression is figurative and not meant to harm.

“It’s a humorous statement that doesn’t mean anything. You can’t lie to God — it’s ridiculous,” Swaggart told The Associated Press. “If it’s an insult, I certainly didn’t think it was, but if they are offended, then I certainly offer an apology.”

Somehow thats supposed to make it better. And this from a supposed ‘Man of God’… Hmmm… You decide.

Perhaps he thinks gays are stupid enough to think it is a genuine apology but expects his followers to know the difference. If so, I think he has the groups confused.

I’m trying to imagine any circumstance when that statement would be “humorous” in relation to anybody – and, nope, I can’t. I think the main thing we’re seeing here is how stupid HE is…

Ok, I just want to know one thing… should a gay man kill any female who looks at him romantically? HA! Or maybe a lesbian should kill that man of g-d. None the less… who is this infamous “they” he refers to? Humans are human.
