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.”

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. I am a lesbian as well. I live in the Bible Belt. However when I run into people like this so called preacher, I remind myself that God knows what is in my heart. He knows I love the Liors with my whole heart and soul. I am lucky enough to be part of a church family that is open to everyone. I am one of the original people that started this church. I look at people like this preacher with pity. God taught us to love each other as ourselves. He preaches vicious lies that can only hurt people. He is not a man of God. He is the voice of satan.

  2. This is one reason that many people are choosing kinder – non judgemental religions like Hinduism and Buddhism ! Spiritual teachers should have to go to college and be trained in science and psychology as well as religion for 20 years before they are lecturing to the public community !!! Being gay is a genetic anomalie that is determined before birth and isn’t a choice ! It is like red hair – blackskin – blue eyes – six toes *** etc !!! A choice is being celibate or sexually active !? Only a gay person knows they are born gay and how it feels to be gay ! False prophets and uneducated warmongers are a dime a dozen !

  3. Have you ever noticed how ALL people who claim they are Christian pick on the LGBT community and ignore the many scriptures in the Bible where it says that heterosexuals who have sex before marriage (fornication) and cheat on their marriage mates (adultery) “will not inherit the Kingdom of God?” The heterosexuals are thrown into the same category of sin as homosexuals and murderers and thieves. Nowhere in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 does it say to stone them to death. If clergy would bring up the FACT that heterosexuals are in the same boat, they would lose most of their tax free income so clergy is not going to bite the hand that feeds them and rebuke all the heterosexuals. This is what I call FALSE RELIGION.

  4. Have you ever wondered what the statistics are to how many children in churches are product of incest and rape? Obviously his church and others like his are not a safe place to bring women and children.

  5. Anyone who can be this hateful is not a man of God. Also, he needs to read all of Leviticus. Based on that book, everyone is daubed to hell. What a pompous twit!

  6. Christmas already pass and nothing happens. I’m gay I’m still here. You are full of it… I beleieve That’s your brainwashed talking. Boy, You need some HELP fella your crazy….

  7. Religion is all man made. Reject it and you are free from all this hateful speech. You can’t fix the Bible, it is full of hate and judgement. Set yourself free of religion and live a life filled with love and compassion.

  8. This is the social equivalent of screaming “fire” in a crowded theater. This so-called pastor, a social parasite, should be arrested for espousing terrorism and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
