Conservative Christian Pastor Calls for Executing All Gay People by Christmas Day

This post by Stephen D. Foster Jr. originally appeared at Addicting Info.

Pastor Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church in Arizona.

It sounds like a sermon that would be delivered in Uganda, but it’s actually from the mouth of an American pastor in Arizona.

Conservative Christian Pastor Steven Anderson openly called for executing every gay person in America during a Sunday sermon at his church in Tempe, Arizona. He claimed from the pulpit that gays need to be put to death in the name of God by Christmas Day in an effort to wipe out AIDS, even though AIDS is not a virus exclusive to the LGBT community. Anderson opined:

Turn to Leviticus 20:13, because I actually discovered the cure for AIDS. If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, 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. 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.

In addition, Anderson went on a hateful tirade about how gay people will never be allowed to step foot inside his church.

“No homos will ever be allowed in this church as long as I am pastor here,” Anderson declared. “Never! Say ‘You’re crazy.’ No, you’re crazy if you think that there’s something wrong with my ‘no homo’ policy.”

Here’s the video via YouTube.

Slowly but surely, conservatives are becoming more extreme in their anti-gay views. So much so, that some are now willing to endorse genocide in the name of God in a desperate bid to force their agenda of hate upon the nation. Despite the fact that the Constitution is the law of the land, conservative Christians like Anderson want to replace that document with the Bible.

The mass extermination of an entire group people is something the Nazis would be applauding. According to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, conservatives are acting just like the Nazis did in Germany, from claims that homosexuality is a sign of the decay of the nation, to claiming that it’s a disease that can be “cured,” to calling for killing gay people.

Many in Germany regarded the Weimar Republic’s toleration of homosexuals as a sign of Germany’s decadence. The Nazis posed as moral crusaders who wanted to stamp out the “vice” of homosexuality from Germany…

Because some Nazis believed homosexuality was a sickness that could be cured, they designed policies to “cure” homosexuals of their “disease” through humiliation and hard work.

Thousands of gay people died in concentration camps under Nazi rule.

It sounds like Anderson is one of those who are posing as a “moral crusader” to push their hateful anti-gay agenda. And yet, conservatives have the nerve to compare liberals to the Nazis. If we continue to stand by and allow conservatives to take power in the United States, we may discover to our horror that similar Nazi anti-gay policies have been established under the cloak of religion.

  1. Where? Leviticus 20:13. The reference was right there in the article. Anderson is an appalling arsehole but you can’t claim that the Bible doesn’t say what it clearly says. You also can’t play the ‘judge not’ card: this is not Anderson judging. According to the Bible, this is Jehovah’s judgement and instruction on sentencing. ‘Judge not’ therefore does not apply.

  2. Maybe he should go back and read the
    10 COMMANDMENTS..FIRST SET OF RULES!
    killing is a sin, pure and simple, the bible never anywhere says, but the EXCEPTION is!!

  3. Just because someone says they are a Christian doesn’t make it true. A Christian is someone who follows the teachings of Christ and he would NEVER approve of the killing of ANYONE gay or otherwise. This guy is no Christian

  4. This supposed Pastor is off his rocker. Christians are to love everyone. This Pastor needs to be booted from the church, he is obviously not promoting Christian love at all.

  5. Jesus never said anything against homosexuality, and it definitely existed at the time. So it’s always puzzled me how “Christians” can be so hateful towards us while claiming to try to be “Christlike”, especially when he risked his own life to save an adulteress, a sin mentioned many more times than homosexuality, even by Christ himself, from an angry mob intent on stoning her to death. If you were truly trying to be Christlike you’d STFU regarding the subject.

    But then I’ve never understood how a supposedly “all-loving God” can condemn someone to eternal torment for ANY sin. That’s the antithesis of all-loving, it’s petty and vengeful, and in my view, downright evil. In fact, that was the view of the Gnostic Christians, that the demiurge, or creator, YHWH, was evil, or at least fallen, because he created matter, or the material world, which is evil, since it is antithetical to spirit.

    • You are so right. Jesus didn't. It wasn't until after his death his followers threw in a bunch of stuff that I question. Of course if you question that, most churches want to label you "apostate" for having critical thinking skills and heaven forbid having any questions that delve deeper into things.

  6. Typical Christian… cherry picking the Bible to support their favorite form of discrimination and hatred.

    Why just homosexuals… the imaginary deity in the Bible wants Christians to kill so many more people:

    Kill People Who Don’t Listen to Priests… (Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT)

    Kill Witches… Exodus 22:17 NAB)

    Kill Fortunetellers… (Leviticus 20:27 NAB)

    Death for Hitting Dad… (Exodus 21:15 NAB)

    Death for Cursing Parents…Proverbs 20:20 NAB, Leviticus 20:9 NLT)

    Death for Adultery… (Leviticus 20:10 NLT)

    Death for Fornication. (Leviticus 21:9 NAB)

    Death to Followers of Other Religions…(Exodus 22:19 NAB)

    Kill Nonbelievers… (2 Chronicles 15:12-13 NAB)

    Kill False Prophets.. (Zechariah 13:3 NAB)

    Kill the Entire Town if One Person Worships Another God….” (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT)

    Kill Women Who Are Not Virgins On Their Wedding Night… (Deuteronomy 22:20-21 NAB)

    Kill Followers of Other Religions…. Deuteronomy 13:7-12 NAB), (Deuteronomy 17:2-5 NLT)

    Kill People for Working on the Sabbath….’ (Exodus 31:12-15 NLT)

  7. The Old Testament was written to keep,what we call now a days DNA,to keep the Jewish community “pure” having no outside influence especially to the house if David so Jesus Christ,S predicted,was born to Jewish parents. The old testament has NOTHING TO DO WITH CHRISTIANITY( thus it’s meaning of Christ). Plus why would the Father send his “son” if all was to stay the same. It wasn’t supposed to that’s why Christian’s ( meaning followers of Christ) worship Christ and His words not the Father because of change the Father wanted. Leave it to we men to screw up God’s perfection by starting another stupid man made versison calked religion and ultimately destroying God’s word instead of sticking to Christs words of peace,love,and care for ALL OUT BROTHERS AND SISTERS.

  8. What I find so amusing is that the bible he quotes from, was commissioned by King James, who had loads of male lovers……..

  9. The Problem with this Preacher is that he is Preaching Old Testament Law and is dismissing the fact that now we live in the age of grace.
    (2 Peter 3:9) – The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
    (Romans 6:14) – For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
    (Revelations 3:19) – As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

    (Matthew 22:36-39) Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38.This is the first and great commandment. 39. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

  10. Mr. Foster, I'm a Lesbian. If you want to try and kill me then bring it on buddy. I learned a long time ago about bigoted haters like you and I DO KNOW HOW TO DEFEND MYSELF VERY WELL. A cop threw me down a flight of stairs once because he hated "queers". He served 10 years in prison. So if you want me killed "put up or STFU". You WILL answer to our Lord God one day. The God I know is an "All Loving God". I will pray for you.

  11. The Sh*T Like That , Is Why The U.S. Needs To Start TAXING – ALL THE CHURCHES , Just Like They Do With CONCERT’s , The Charge To Listen To The CRAP !!! … Church In Public School’s , Mighty Sad When The Churches Budget , Is More Than The School Budget …

  12. The death of Jesus freed all of us from the condemnation of the law. He has no business preaching death and condemnation which is contrary to what Jesus preached which was love and life.
