by Jack Ryan

In 1988, Swaggart was implicated in a sex scandal (VIDEO) involving a prostitute that resulted initially in his suspension and ultimately Swaggart was defrocked and removed from the ministry by the Assemblies of God.

Without giving any details regarding his transgressions, Swaggart gave his now infamous "I Have Sinned" speech (VIDEO HERE) as he tearfully spoke to his family, congregation and TV audience, saying, "I have sinned against You, my Lord, and I would ask that Your precious blood would wash and cleanse every stain until it is in the seas of God's forgiveness.

In 1991 the television evangelist faced with accusations that he picked up a California prostitute for sex, stepped down from his worldwide ministry.

Rosemary Garcia, a 31-year-old prostitute in Indio, Calif., said she was with Mr. Swaggart on a Friday in 1991 when he was stopped by a police officer and cited for traffic violations.

In a rambling sermon by Swaggart in 2004, the televangelist turned to the subject of gay marriage.

According to a transcript of his program, Swaggart said: "I'm trying to find the correct name for it ... this utter absolute, asinine, idiotic stupidity of men marrying men. ... I've never seen a man in my life I wanted to marry. And I'm gonna be blunt and plain; if one ever looks at me like that, I'm gonna kill him and tell God he died."
