It's most likely the only place left in your city to find employment, so pardon me if the whole "Diversity" bullshit doesn't bring a tear to my eye. [Wonkette]

Televangelist breached guidelines: ruling
Jimmy Swaggart gets spanked, then tickled, then spanked again:
"I'm going to be blunt and plain: If one ever looks at me like that, I'm going to kill him and tell God he died," Swaggart said.

Swaggart also said that politicians who are undecided on the issue of same-sex marriage "all oughta have to marry a pig and live with him forever."

I don't know about you, but when I read those comments, I'm certain God smiled down on that man and then puked, and then told Satan to make room for one more.
The panel said the debate over same-sex marriage is "more than legitimate" and "democratically essential" but said Swaggart's "negativity" was "visceral."

"The problem of Swaggart's language is, in a sense, exacerbated by the fact that he, as a religious figure, can be presumed to set an example for his community. It would, therefore, be easy for someone to infer that this might be the proper way for a Christian of this sect (or possibly of any sect) to respond to homosexuality," the ruling added.

In related news, Jimmy shot fire from his ass three days straight after making the evil comments, amen.
