Radio Host Pastor Kevin Swanson: Which Is Worse: ISIS or "Highlights" Magazine for Picture of Gay Family?

Hopefully you remember this image from the February 2017 issue of "Highlights" that features a family with two gay dads in it. The image was accompanied by the following text: "Your Favorite Family Trip. Has your family ever taken a memorable trip? Tell us where you went and what you liked about it. Include a drawing, if you wish."

Apparently, that image is no better than ISIS, according to Pastor Kevin Swanson of the "Generations" radio program. Here is an excerpt:
Swanson said that while ISIS is releasing videos showing young children killing prisoners, Highlights is just as evil because it will “encourage the support for the sin of homosexuality among kids.”
“So now, here’s Highlights magazine, an American kids’ magazine promoting homosexuality amongst kids,” Swanson fumed, “and now ISIS is teaching kids how to kill people. Now, I got to thinking: Which sin is worse? Homosexuality or murder? Which is worse? Are we really that much better than ISIS?”
You can hear at clip at this website.

Maybe, I just too nerdy and na├»ve enough to “bite into” the delicious discussion of “ranking” sins (even though Jesus specifically tells us not to go around “judging” someone else supposed sin without first handling our own sin….

Be that as it may – if our sole “sins” to choose upon are
1) Murder (or taking a life)
2) Homosexuality (which has never been classified a “sin” within the Bible)

I would say the choice is rather clear
Murder (which makes it into the Big Ten Commandments) is a Big No-No
Homosexuality (which is simply desires or attractions for the same sex) – and these are never ever condemned within the Bible – and Same Sex sexual contact (which fall under actions) and there are some scriptures that can be used to state the behavior (ie the sexual contact) is sinful. (Not that everyone would even agree then)…

Heck, even “divorce” as SIN – ranks higher than the same sex contact ….

BUT again this is simply “Shock Radio” where the most outrageous statement gets the news……
