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

Published

on

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.

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?

AOC Slams McCarthy and His GOP ‘Ku Klux Klan Caucus’ for Allowing ‘Violent Targeting’ of Women of Color in Congress

Published

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is criticizing House Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy for refusing to deal with the members of his “Ku Klux Klan” caucus who are ignoring and allowing the “violent targeting” of women of color members of Congress.

The Democratic Congresswoman from New York, herself the frequent target of violent threats, pointed to this video of U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar playing a death threat received after she was targeted by GOP Congresswoman Lauren Boebert:

“People truly don’t understand the scale, intensity, & volume of threats targeting” Congresswoman Omar, Ocasio-Cortez says.

“Kevin McCarthy is so desperate to be speaker that he is working with his Ku Klux Klan caucus to look aside & allow violent targeting of woc members of Congress. This cannot be ignored,” she warns.

Congresswoman Boebert over the past week was exposed – on video – suggesting Rep. Omar is a terrorist three times, including in one video she herself posted to social media.

McCarthy has refused to take any action against Boebert.

'BLAZING POSITIVE'

‘Massive, Dangerous, Likely Intentional’: Immunologist Blasts Trump for Ignoring Positive COVID Test Before Biden Debate

Published

on

A Harvard epidemiologist, immunologist and physician is blasting Donald Trump‘s decision to continue his activities as normal in September 2020, not go public with the results of his positive COVID test result, and continue business as usual – including participating in a debate against Joe Biden – revelations made in a new book by Trump’s White House chief of staff Mark Meadows on Wednesday.

Dr. Michael Mina says if Trump had been given a rapid COVID test the day of the first presidential debate against Joe Biden, President Trump “would have been blazing positive,” and calls the decision to not test “massive, dangerous and likely intentional.”

“The decision to continue to not test on [the] day of the Rose Garden superspreader event and on [the] day of the debate with now @POTUS Biden was a massive, dangerous and likely intentional decision,” says Michael Mina, an Assistant Professor of Epidemiology and Immunology and Infectious Diseases at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and an Assistant Professor of Pathology at Harvard Medical School’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

“Was Trump the superspreader? For a year, I’ve suggested Trump was the likely superspreader at White House Rose Garden on 9/28/20,” Mina posits. “All were supposedly tested, so how would a superspreader enter? Now we know Trump tested COVID positive 2 days earlier.”

Citing Meadows’ new book, The Guardian reported Wednesday morning that Trump tested positive on Sept. 26, and shortly thereafter, before the Sept. 29 presidential debate, tested negative – but three days after the debate, on Oct. 2, again tested positive, and was rushed to Walter Reed hospital hours later.

Because Trump “was testing so frequently, he was [likely] detected using a molecular test at the earliest time, before becoming infectious,” says Mina.

“So when he immediately tested again with a rapid Ag test, it did not yet register positive because he was not YET infectious,” Mina explains. “Had he used a rapid test later that day or next day though, once he was becoming slightly infectious, he almost certainly would have been positive.”
