Remember untethered-from-reality Pastor Leroy Swailes, who “testified” before the DCBoard of Elections and Ethics regarding the District’s law that recognizes out of state marriages? Swailes ranted for several minutes, uttering inane homobigotry such as “A beast has four legs and one gender. If you put two men together, you have four legs and two penises…that’s one gender — that’s a form of bestiality.”
Well Mike Signorile couldn’t resist and invited Pastor Swailes on his show yesterday. As you might imagine, the conversation was, well. interesting. Even more amusing was that Swailes’ coworkers were amused by the fact the pastor was going on “abomination radio.”
I forgot to add that after the interview a co-worker of Rev. Swailes called the show, a woman who works with him at his day job I guess. Amber said that he told her about the upcoming interview, in the parking lot, after he saw a Sirius radio antenna on her car. He said, I’m going on “abomination radio,” and she said, “OutQ? I listen to that all the time.” She is pro-gay and obviously doesn’t agree with Swailes’ views, like most people at work. After he told her what time he was going on, she said, “OMG, you are going on the Michelangelo Signorile Show! I can’t wait for that.” She said he took off from work just to stay home and do the interview, and she said that everyone at work was listening to the interview (half have XM, half have Sirius) in the parking lot! Hilarious.
Head over to Mike’s pad to listen. For a flashback, watch the video again. It’s below the fold.
