Televangelist breached guidelines: ruling

When televangelist Jimmy Swaggart said he would kill a homosexual who looked at him romantically, he violated the Canadian Association of Broadcasters’ ethics code, an industry panel has ruled.
Swaggart made the remarks during a discussion of same-sex marriage on a Sept. 12 broadcast that was carried by the Toronto station Omni 1.
“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.”
The comments prompted a complaint that was filed with the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council, the arm of the CAB that deals with viewer feedback.
