"God's laws require that we prosecute homosexuals who are caught in the act of homosexuality or the act of sodomy on the basis of two or three witnesses. See, if Christians would do that -- if Christian pastors would do that -- then we would be able to hopefully press back the line upon those who are impressing their rights upon Christians who really need that religious freedom."

-- Colorado pastor Kevin Swanson, calling for India-style recriminalization of homosexuality for the sake of preserving the "religious freedom" of anti-LGBT Christians. Audio of his comments is available here via Right Wing Watch.
