Pastor Steven Anderson, who made headlines yesterday after calling for the murder of all gays to end AIDS by Christmas, is doubling down and has posted another strong statement to Facebook.
Many people were shocked upon learning that an Arizona pastor this Sunday â€“Â just days after Thanksgiving â€“Â actually called for the murder of all gay people so that “we can have an AIDS-free world by Christmas.”Â
Pastor Steven Anderson shortly after Raw Story broke the news on Wednesday zipped up his personal Facebook page, making almost all of it private. But he doubled down on his church’s Facebook page, posting a video from 2013 titled, “The Truth about the Sodomites.” In his Facebook posting, he wrote, “The truth is hate to those who hate the truth!,” as if he were taunting his critics.
The hour-long video from last year, which can be viewed in whole below, is exceptionally hate-filled and attacks gay people (whom he says he refuses to call “gay.”) He tells his congregation he calls gay people “sodomites,” and says the bible uses that word 54 times.Â
Reading from the bible, he calls gay people’s love “vile,” “uncleanness,” and “against nature.” And he mocks gay people, asking his parishioners if the bible says gay people are “normal” or “born that way.”
“For those of you who are more of a scientific persuasion,” Pastor Anderson said, “I’ve got all the facts here.”Â
Among the “facts” Anderson laid out, his claim that “every single homo in the bible went both ways,” and gay people “are worthy of death.”
“Now the homo says, ‘god made me this way.’ And I have to say, he is partially correct. But he wasn’t born that way, he became that way,” Anderson claimed, adding, “if you’re a normal man, you find it disgusting to be intimate with another man.”
Throughout the sermon, Anderson, often reading from his bible, refers to gay people as “disgusting,” “vile,” “reprobate,” “haters of the lord,” “filled with murder,” and “basically rapists.” He also compares same-sex sex to an animal eating its own vomit, bestiality, and a human committing suicide.
Anderson further dehumanized gay people by stating that god gave them “a heart similar to a heart of a beast,” and said that like dogs, “sodomites” will “hump just about anything.”

Top US Counter Intelligence Official Formally Announces Russia Is Working to Help Trump Win Re-Election – Will He Act?
The top counterintelligence official in the United States government has just released an official statement saying the Intelligence Community is actively working to help President Donald Trump get re-elected.
“We assess that Russia is using a range of measures to primarily denigrate former Vice President Biden and what it sees as an anti-Russia ‘establishment.’ This is consistent with Moscow’s public criticism of him when he was Vice President for his role in the Obama Administration’s policies on Ukraine and its support for the anti-Putin opposition inside Russia,” states National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) Director William Evanina.
“For example, pro-Russia Ukrainian parliamentarian Andriy Derkach is spreading claims about corruption – including through publicizing leaked phone calls – to undermine former Vice President Biden’s candidacy and the Democratic Party. Some Kremlin-linked actors are also seeking to boost President Trump’s candidacy on social media and Russian television.”
Evanina does not limit his assessment to Russia. China and Iran, he says, prefer Biden to win the election – which would account for Trump’s recent attacks on both countries, while refusing to challenge or confront Russian President Vladimir Putin on any issue.
“We assess that China prefers that President Trump – whom Beijing sees as unpredictable – does not win reelection. China has been expanding its influence efforts ahead of November 2020 to shape the policy environment in the United States, pressure political figures it views as opposed to China’s interests, and deflect and counter criticism of China.”
“We assess that Iran seeks to undermine U.S. democratic institutions, President Trump, and to divide the country in advance of the 2020 elections.”
U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) says Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, and other top Democrats, have been urging Evanina to release this information to the public.
But he warns that Presidewnt Donald Trump is unlikely to act on it.
Huge news from ODNI – not the least because Giuliani has worked to amplify Derkach's criticisms of Biden; the IC now says those criticisms are part of a Russian effort to damage Biden's candidacy pic.twitter.com/N16eq9EQQl

‘Robbing Us Blind!’: Photo of Trump Exiting Air Force One Leads to Angry Allegations Against His ‘Decadent Lifestyle’
President Donald Trump is taking a few days off to focus on what seems to have become his full time job: getting re-elected. Trump jetted to Ohio on Thursday, held a campaign-style event at a Whirlpool factory, paid for by the U.S. taxpayers, then headed off to a fundraiser where he raked in $5 million. Trump will headline two $250,000 per person Hamptons and New Jersey fundraisers this weekend, and at least one other where the price of entry will cost up to $50,000.
Meanwhile, a photo taken by CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller has many spitting mad.
“Pres Trump steps off Air Force One in Morristown NJ to transfer to Marine One for the short flight to his golf club in Bedminster,” Knoller tweeted Thursday night.
It clearly hit a nerve, and the responses show it.
I don’t think most Americans have any clue how much this man costs us with his decadent lifestyle. That’s by design. https://t.co/my4FN7URth

Instead of stepping off, to Bedminister, he needs to step up and do his damn job. How many damned days off to golf does he need? 2,000 Americans died today and NJ was just slammed by a hurricane, hundreds of thousands of people without power there. Really?

Trump wants to accept the Republican nomination on the White House lawn to save money. I’ll give you a moment to let that sink in. 😐 https://t.co/1uXyIye3tU

We live in the flight path and hear Pres. Creep flying over our house each time he visits. You can actually feel the moral and ethical and civility indicators in our state decline when he’s here. You hear his plane & immediately want to engage in unethical conduct.

1. Donald’s holding the hand rails again.
2. New Jersey has a 14 day quarantine rule for anyone arriving who’s been in Ohio. Why is Trump allowed out of his room at his golf club? https://t.co/MYIpgiCmbo

These are now 3 day weekend visits to his private club for leisure time and grifting.

Millions in stupid expenses. People can’t even afford buses and he’s robbing the coffers blind.

Georgia School Backs Down on Suspending Hero Student Who Exposed Crowded Hallways During Pandemic
A Georgia teen had her school suspension lifted for posting photos of crowded hallways after returning to classes during the coronavirus pandemic.
Hannah Watters shared photos from inside North Paulding High School showing students crowded together, with few wearing face coverings, and school officials relented on punishing her after the image and the girl’s suspension went viral, reported the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
“I spoke to the principal a short time ago and he has rescinded the suspension and she will have no discipline on her record,” said her mother Lynne Watters.
The 15-year-old said the school notified her that she’d violated school policies against using her phone during instruction time and being active on social media during school hours, but she claimed the posting was made after hours — and insisted she had no regrets.
“I’d like to say this is some good and necessary trouble,” Watters said. “My biggest concern is not only about me being safe, it’s about everyone being safe because behind every teacher, student and staff member there is a family, there are friends, and I would just want to keep everyone safe.”
The school backed down on the suspension after nationwide outcry over the disciplinary action.
