Quote# 81027

Steven Anderson, formerly affiliated with Sacramento, Calif.-based Regency Baptist Church, started Faithful Word Baptist Church in Arizona on Christmas Day 2005 as a “totally independent” organization. With “well over a hundred chapters of the Bible memorized word-for-word,” Anderson quickly led his congregation into a series of extremely radical stands.

Much of his venom was aimed at homosexuals, who he suggests should be killed (“The biggest hypocrite in the world is the person who believes in the death penalty for murderers but not for homosexuals”). In an August 2009 sermon, he attacked the United Methodist Church, saying “10% of their preachers are queers” and adding, “they got a dyke and a faggot behind the pulpit.” He has described gays as “sodomites” who “recruit through rape” and “recruit through molestation.”

Anderson is also a virulent government hater. As operator of the True Sons of Liberty website, the pastor calls for abolishing the IRS, the Federal Reserve, Social Security and Child Protective Services state agencies. In April 2009, he refused to get out of his car or answer questions from Border Patrol agents at the California-Arizona border. Agents broke his window and tased him as a result.

Anderson brought his church national notoriety in August 2009, when a member of his congregation, Christopher Broughton, went to an Obama appearance in Phoenix legally carrying an assault rifle and a pistol. It turned out that Jones had preached a day earlier to Broughton and others that he “hates Obama” and would “pray that he dies and goes to hell.” Two weeks later, he told openly gay columnist Michelangelo Signorile that he “would not judge or condemn” anyone who killed the president. Then, for good measure, he told Signorile at the end of the interview, “If you’re a homosexual, I hope you get brain cancer and die like Ted Kennedy.”

Well at least he's not hiding his hate behind 'protecting marriage' and 'upholding traditional family values'. Feel that Christian love!

Ah, Steven, you are the variety of anal retentive fundies I have come to love.. to make fun of.

" Agents broke his window and tased him as a result."

Let's do more of this.

...calls for abolishing the IRS,

Not disagreeing here but a flat-tax system would slay this monster much easier.

the Federal Reserve,

I'm definitely not against this one. The "Federal" Reserve is as federal as Federal Express. (To use Dennis Kucinich's old joke.) This is nothing more than private bankers masquerading as a quasi-governmental agency. Scary thing is the Federal Reserve Chairman is given powers that no private individual could ever hope to have.

Social Security

I never could understand why my grandfather lambasted FDR so bad for the New Deal that ushered in Social Security (among other social programs). Now, as a tax payer whose teat is getting squeezed harder and harder every year, I understand completely.

and Child Protective Services

I don't have kids but can believe some of the Nazi-like behavior coming out of CPS. "Guilty until proven innocent" is definitely the mantra and motivation for these people.

Stevie is still bat-schite crazy. Wonder how that tasing felt. Bet it tickled!

According to your Bible god put Obama in office, you fucknugget. Which means that killing him is going against god's wishes. Also, he was elected fair and square and won in a landslide. I accepted Bush as my president and never once said he should be killed despite the fact that he was a royal fuckup. You lost, now just get over it you fucking psychopath.

This is going to end with someone in a strait-jacket or a black bag. Let's hope it's the former.

What is it with right-wing wackos named Steven Anderson? There was a Steven Anderson who was a member of a militia group and ran a clandestine/pirate radio station from his home in Kentucky until he went on the run after shooting up a police car.

Hey, they missed the part where he defines masculinity by the desire to piss against a wall!

And they will know we're Christians by our love.

“The biggest hypocrite in the world is the person who believes in the death penalty for murderers but not for homosexuals”

And also hypocrites are those who don't believe in the death penalty for adulterers, thieves, rapists, women who were raped but didn't yell out, people of other religions, people working on Sunday, and kids who were disrespectful to their parents. You've got some major soul-searching to do, true believers!

While I'm *SO* glad this fuckwit is out of my city, I apologize to the entirety of the state of Arizona on behalf of my own beloved Sacramento area and would like it known that he does not in any form, nature, or spirit, hold views even remotely similar to the populace of the greater Sactown area.

Deal with him using extreme prejudice, Arizona.

@JohnTheAtheist

I got $100 that says that Steve-O has sucked a dick.

That's a sucker bet (no pun intended; well, OK, maybe a little bit). I'd add $50 to the pot that it happened in a public restroom somewhere. I bet that's why Stevie is so pissed off at gays, because they get to live out in the open with their sexuality while he has to surreptitiously meet other men in public restrooms & other places for a clandestine tryst.

I think it's abundantly clear that the more hostile to homosexuality a right-winger is, the higher the chances of them getting caught up in a gay sex scandal. I'll call it "Haggard's Law of Probability."

"Two weeks later, he told openly gay columnist Michelangelo Signorile that he “would not judge or condemn” anyone who killed the president."

And there, right there, Stevie-weevie reveals himself to be what Hitchens calls a Solipsist and I call a megalomaniac. Who judges?
