Pastor Steven L. Anderson recently ranted at Faithful Word Baptist Church in Temple, AZ that God "instituted the death penalty for rapists and for homosexuals" and that they "recruit through rape."
You can hear the entire rant here, and excerpts are below:
Our country is run by faggots. You know who was the man who was the architect of the bailout? His name is Barney Frank, he is a pedophile...
The biggest hypocrite in the world is the person who believes in the death penalty for murderers and not for homosexuals. Hypocrite. The same God who instituted the death penalty for murderers is the same God who instituted the death penalty for rapists and for homosexuals - sodomites, queers! ... I can tell you so many stories about people that I know being molested and recruited by the sodomites.
They recruit through rape. They recruit through molestation. They recruit through violation. They are infecting our society. They are spreading their disease. It's not a physical disease, it's a sin disease , it's a wicked, filthy sin disease and it's spreading on a rampage. ... You want to know why sodomites are recruiting? Because they have no natural predators.
May God help preachers in this generation to make the Bible their authority, not tradition, and call this ungodly practice what it really is – sin. Any doctor that looks upon and touches a woman's private parts in his office "hath committed adultery with her already in his heart." Sir, if you let your wife go to a male gynecologist, you need to get right with God.
Who will Anderson attack next? Brassiere salesmen at Macy's? Male Kindergarten teachers? Lord help us when he discovers that there is such a thing as a ballerino. I'm pretty sure Jesus wouldn't approve of the vile bigotry coming from his mouth.
