For the benefit of those of you visiting here, I have chosen the MSNBC analysis of Pastor Steven Anderson's scary and totally whacked out rantings based on the Psalms... which led to his repeated shouts of "I hate Barack Obama!" and praying to God to "break his teeth and melt him like a slug." Be thankful that the TV people decided to be responsible in choosing what they aired from this nutcase.
Alone, one could possibly write this man off as a whack job. However, the day after he delivered this hour+ sermon, one of his congregation from Faithful Word Baptist Church showed up at a town hall meeting in Tempe where the President was speaking...and the man was armed with a fully-loaded automatic rifle! His shouts of "I hate Barack Obama!" were met with "Amen!" from those in attendance, so while there's no official link.... I think it doesn't take a social science degree to figure this one out!
Pastor Anderson not only hates Obama; he hates the gay community. Really, really hates us. In one sermon, he kept screaming about the "faggots" and the "dykes" in the pulpits of such mainline denominations as the United Methodist Church. He said LGBT people deserve the death penalty, and noted that the reason we exist in the world is because we have no natural predator. Gee, what do you think a mentally-unstable person with an AR-15 would do with that?!
I hope the FBI, CIA, Homeland Security and local police keep a very close watch on this guy. He already has had a run in with border patrol in Arizona when he refused to answer questions. The cops tased him. Perhaps the officer with the taser was a "faggot".
Since Pastor Anderson believes the only bible one should read is the King James Version (because King James wasn't gay, right?), I thought I'd pull this passage:
"Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's
clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall
know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns,
or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth
good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A
good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a
corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that
bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into
the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them."
Matthew 7:15-20, KJV
