Colorado becoming "the worst possible hellhole on Planet Earth," radio preachers say

Not long ago, we shared the fifty latest reasons why Colorado is the best state in the country.

Of course, even some people who live here disagree -- but few disagree as vehemently as Generations Radio cohorts Kevin Swanson and Dave Buehner. On a recent program, they said the state is well on its way to becoming "the worst possible hellhole on Planet Earth" due to a "drugged-out, marijuana'd-out, homosexual culture where children are abused as much as possible." Why? We'll let them explain.

The Generations Radio website's "About" page notes that the program was launched in October 2003 on KZNT, an AM radio station in -- you guessed it -- Colorado Springs. From there, it added outlets such as KLT in Denver and Iowa's Faith and Freedom Network based. But in 2010, the show stopped buying time on terrestrial radio stations in order to concentrate on webcasting -- and according to the site, total downloads broke the 1,000,000 mark in June 2011, with listeners claimed in "over 100 countries."

Among those who tuned recently are the folks at Right Wing Watch, affiliated with the left-leaning organization People for the American Way. Generations Radio has been on the RWW radar since at least June, with a previous post from a few weeks back noting that host Swanson and producer Buehner had suggested that wildfires in the state were divine retribution for the state's new civil unions law.

The pair were particular incensed by a photo on the cover of the Denver Post featuring Representative Mark Ferrandino kissing his significant other. RWW's transcript of Swanson's remarks reads in part, "When you have a state where the House leadership is performing a homosexual act on the front page of the Denver Post two months ago? Does God read the Denver Post? Do you think He picks up a copy of the Denver Post? He gets it. God gets the Denver Post."

Given how newspapers are struggling to retain subscribers, knowing that Jehovah is a faithful reader must be reassuring for the folks at the Post. Maybe they should make it the centerpiece of a new advertising campaign: "God reads the Denver Post? Why don't you?"

More recently, Swanson and Buehner expanded on these themes in some memorable rants about what they described as the Democratic agenda in Colorado.

Here's an excerpt from an RWW salvo from this past month:

If it was evil, they loved it; if it was against God's laws, they said go for it. Our legislature in Colorado stuck a finger in God's eye every opportunity that they had in this last legislative season, it was amazing, they obliterated family freedoms at every step, they trashed gun rights, they embraced every moral abomination they could find, they undermined liberty at every single point.
Tough stuff -- but the dynamic duo were only getting started.

The extreme Christian Right is now so evil that this doesn't surprise me. Colorado is too non-judgemental for the new Christian White Right Elite. They could never be so forgiving and accepting, which is hypocritical, to say the least. Oh well, I just tell them I'll see them all in hell. (And, of course, this completely confuses them)

People need to check what is going on. Surely if they believe in God, they would not be so blatant about some of the things that are going on. Is sny of this true or would you know, defenders, "If it was evil, they loved it; if it was against God's laws, they said go for it. Our legislature in Colorado stuck a finger in God's eye every opportunity that they had in this last legislative season, it was amazing, they obliterated family freedoms at every step, they trashed gun rights, they embraced every moral abomination they could find, they undermined liberty at every single point."

Well, I've been to Denver many times and I've never seen people in togas or sporting these hairstyles. People from Denver would be drinking a Corona, not wine! Draw your own conclusion.

Really. I invite them to leave and don't let the door hit them on the ass. Good riddance.

It's still a true western state. You do your own thing in your own time here. The state is still true to its roots in mining (including oil and gas), ranching/livestock, farming, rail transport, and mountaineering/outdoors. Some folks move in setting out to create their own shamanistic unicorn ranches, preaching against some of those roots, but most Coloradans calmly tune them out.

Crazy judgmental statement by a man trying only to get ratings. Colorado has amazing people and the most diverse unique learning programs, as well as Coloradans have huge hearts and care for others! That's how I see it.

I WILL NOT "LIKE" THIS. If Colorado is a "hell hole," then is Colorado Springs, the state's biggest "bastion of bigotry," not a part of it? Go to a pure state and spew your quasi-religious venom, please.

Excuse me?? I don't know quite what to say, where to begin. But I agree with Dennis Scalf, it's kind of funny. And way to pick and choose from the Bible. They must have missed the parts about loving others and not judging.

Maybe if these guys prayed hard enough they could pray the gay out of all the homosexual's in Colorado, then they wouldn't have to move to Texas or Wyoming. It worked for Michelle bachman's husband.....nOT.

The preacher in the picture looks like his name should be Chester. Maybe him and Haggard can get some meth induced ass sex going, maybe even get some male hookers. I hope and wish that anyone who actually thinks this guy is right would please move to Wyoming. Does anyone know why such a beautiful city like Colorado Springs is over run with whacked out Christian weirdo's? I heard it is the Christian cult capital of the US.
