  • Pastor Promises 'AIDS-Free World By Christmas' If We 'Execute The Homos Like God Recommends'

    A Christian pastor in Arizona told his congregation the cure for AIDS has always been in the bible. They laughed.

    Pastor Steven Anderson founded and runs the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona. He and his wife Zsuzsanna have seven children. The church website boasts that Pastor Anderson "holds no college degree but has well over 140 chapters of the Bible memorized word-for-word, including approximately half of the New Testament." It even has a section that promises it can "revolutionize the way you memorize the Bible," and anyone can commit the bible to memory in just five years.

    One book of the bible Pastor Anderson seems to have memorized extensively is Leviticus.

    On Sunday, as his congregation and many people across America were remembering a delightful Thanksgiving dinner and likely not looking forward to work the next day, Pastor Anderson offered them a Christmas miracle. 

    "I actually discovered the cure for AIDS," Anderson quipped, urging his congregation to open their bibles to Leviticus 20:13. There were some chuckles in the audience. "Everybody's talking about, 'Let's have an AIDS-free world by 2020.' Look, we can have an AIDS-free world by Christmas," he promised, to more laughter.

    Doubling Down: Pastor Who Calls For Murder Of All Gays To End AIDS Publishes Strong Response

    Some Religious Leaders Denounce Pastor Who Wants To Ends AIDS By Killing Gays

     

    “Here's what the bible says, Leviticus 20:13. 'If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman,'" Anderson read to his congregation, "it says, even both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them."

    “And that, my friend, is the cure for AIDS,” Anderson continued. “It was right there in the Bible all along — and they’re out spending billions of dollars in research and testing. It’s curable — right there. Because if you executed the homos like God recommends, you wouldn’t have all this AIDS running rampant.”

    His congregation wasn't shy about laughing.

    And no one seemed shy about equating HIV/AIDS with gay people, ignoring the fact that the virus, unlike the Pastor, doesn't discriminate.

    Pastor Anderson quoted statistics of how many people in America identify as gay, as if that would somehow protect his flock from contracting the virus. 

    How many religious leaders will admonish or denounce him?

      i want to share my experience of how i got cured from HIV. It may sound strange but it’s true! For the past 3years i have spent a lot of money in buying anti-retroviral medicines to strengthen my immune system and keep me healthy, until i read an article on the internet about an Africa Herbalist who uses herbs and roots to cure cancer and all kind of diseases. Though i never believed he can cure HIV, but i decided to give it a try because i was desperate. Then i sent a message to the herbalist on his email(dr5050spelltemple@gmail.com). He prepared herbal medications and send it to me through DHL COURIER SERVICE and i took it as instructed. 11days after he told me to go for a checkup,, i went to the hospital to do the checkup, the result came out and i tested HIV NEGATIVE. I’m sharing my testimony with you, because i know how horrible it feels to be hiv-positive. feel free to send a message to him on his email, and am sure he will be willing to help you and you will also have a testimony to share. if you have friends who are also suffering from this disease, please inform them about this.

      Oops! That should be “Virus” Sorry about that!

      The poor man doesn’t know much about the disease. The irus isn’t as evil & petty as he is …… it doesn’t discriminate. Heterosexuals spread HIV. In order to accomplish his goal, he’d have to kill everybody who has sex with anyone else who has had sex with anyone else. I doubt that anyone would ever let him get away with mass murder.

      Religion is designer product. People can choose from over 45,000 different denominations of Christianity, dozens of which actually perform same sex marriages.

      Leviticus is old testament. Christians are supposed to be about new testament.

      If Arizona passes a “Religious Freedom” law, he would be the first person I would refuse service to – for he offends my Christian principles and my Christian Religious faith.

      Your know they only quote from that section what they want to use as a weapon to hurt others that:
      1 don’t agree with them or their beliefs..
      2. they think are inferior to them or their beliefs
      3. 8 times out 10 the person doing this a closeted homosexual themselves and use this to berate others that are true to themselves and not hiding in the close.
      True everyone has their Own opinion, but this guy is spouting murderous intent on Women, Men, and Children that are either Gay, Lesbian, Bi-Sexual, and Transgender.
      Why does the leaders of the Church he runs pull him from the stage?
      Yes I am gay, I am a Minister, and no I do not spout hateful comments to the people I have in my Congregation.
      Not once did Jesus teach Hate, he Taught love and Understanding for your fellow man.
      God created us in His Image which means He made us the way He wanted us to be.
      Love does not discriminate on Sex, Age, or Physical Ability. – You Love who you Love.
      He talks about HIV and AIDS – First he needs to get all the facts and state those facts correctly, not pick and choose the ones he wants to use to make some point makes no sense.
      He needs to re-read the Ten Commandments.
      Okay I’m off my soap box now.

      disgusting. someone who is a leader among a group of people preaching something so hateful is just disgusting. he should not be allowed to be a teacher of any sorts as all he has is hate for another human being and i believe that if god is real he would teach acceptance not hate.
      this guy makes me sick.

    • commented 2015-03-19 19:16:49 -0400
      What a stupid ignorant human being! This makes me sick! How about Thou Shall Not Kill! If he has the bible memorized he should know that! He is the reason Christians get a bad name and people are leaving the church! I can’t even get on this soap box because I will be writing for days! Disgusting.

      Of course, Jesus always killed the sick, infirm, and deviants.

      When Sean Hannity challenged Muslim leaders to speak out against ISIS lest they be complicit, we rightfully called it an ignorant statement — people aren’t responsible for their most extreme faction. Steven Anderson is the neutered ISIS of American Christianity: he’s a clown who is only famous because of clickbait denunciations. He sways virtually no opinion, and the world owes him nothing.

      So to answer your final question (how many religious leaders will denounce him) I’m guessing the answer is “virtually zero: no one respects him enough to spoon feed him the publicity..” And I’m glad.

      Scott Lively will be tried for crimes against humanity. This piece of shit from Arizona should be next.

      This piece of excrement hates the most fundamental of American values – “We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal…” A good reason for his tax free status to be cancelled.

      He should, no, NEEDS to be charged with incitement to murder. Locked away as a madman, at least.
      Rare to find anyone this stupid, this ignorant, this moronic in our beautiful world, but here is a prize exhibit of what happens when the brain simply doesn’t engage.
      I don’t know whether to be outraged, flabbergasted or just disgusted by this pathetic excuse for a human being. All three it will have to be.

      I seriously hope this man’s name is on a hit list of harmful demagogues who die immediately when/if society collapses. If not so many more will die horrifically at their hands.

      Sorry to say. We won’t fix hate with hate. This is a sick man. Clearly and he is peddling some really scary hate speak that will appeal to only the most ignorant. Also, this is not Christianity. True Christianity is love of all. Not claiming to be a Christian either but he is not. What he is pedling is nothing more than man made hatred. Agree he is seriously a fightening person and I don’t Claim to know the cure for that type of thought but I do know it isn’t more hate.

      A majority of the most horrendous crimes against humanity have been committed in the name of Christianity. For example the Spanish Inquisition, KKK lynching, Salem which burning, etc. Why should this “pastor” be any different?

    • commented 2014-12-04 09:08:50 -0500
      RIch Pratt – The pastor gave himself a national platform by preaching to his congregation of enthusiastic haters then uploading his vitriol to YouTube. This gives us the platform and the opportunity to throw open the debate over religious animus against homosexuals with point by point rebuttals of the dogma they rely upon to persecute us. Failure on our part to respond to his invective connotes acceptance of its message.

    • commented 2014-12-04 08:14:26 -0500
      Why give this guy a national platform? Why spread his message beyond the few people who show up at his church on Sunday? There are always nut jobs screaming on the street corner, it does no good to give them the publicity they crave.

      This guy is a nut. Nowhere in the bible does it mention what to do with homosexuals. The word homosexual wasn’t even invented until the 1600’s. Not only that- the majority of the bible was written hundreds of years after the accounts of what it claims. The bible is NOT the WORD of God. God did not come down and write the bible. The bible is written by ordinary citizens with absolutely no power. God talks to no one. Anyone who claims God is talking to them is a nut.

      I agree with Derek Williams. I can also quote about 600 more sins in the bible that are specific to heterosexuals only. There are 667 sins in the bible. Look them up idiots.

      And if we want to execute anyone, let’s start with the pedophiles. 98% of Pedophiles are HETEROSEXUAL men. 78% are heterosexual MARRIED men. 72% of Pedophiles are Heterosexual Married Men who claim to be RELIGIOUS.
      So start looking at the men in your church…….Let’s execute them first…..
      Idiots.
