'Kill All Gays' Pastor Steven Anderson Compares Gay People To Ax Murderers, Hitler - VIDEO

Anderson2

An Arizona news anchor has challenged nasty anti-gay preacher Steve Anderson on his recent call for the stoning to death of all gay people, reports the Advocate.

Anderson, who has in the past wished for death by brain cancer for President Obama, gay people, and Michelangelo Signorile, told his followers in a World AIDS Day sermon that the best cure for HIV/AIDS is to kill all gay people. Anderson also told his congregation that “all homosexuals are pedophiles.”

In an interview with Phoenix TV station KPNX anchor Mark Curtis, Anderson refreshingly doesn’t claim to not hate gay people and refers to himself as a “religious zealot.”

Anderson, pastor of the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, claims that “according to the Bible, homosexuality is a capital crime."

He masterfully avoids Curtis’s question as to whether he would want one of his own children to die if they were gay, arguing that homosexuality is a “fallacy” because people only become gay when the reject god. He admits that if he did have a gay child he would reject them.

Anderson bizarrely compares gay people to Adolf Hitler and murderers:

“That’s like saying, what if your daughter, you know, grew up to be an ax murderer?” he says. “What if your son grew up to be like Adolf Hitler?”

Pastor Jim Garlow Wants Gay Marriage Supporters to 'Live In Houses With Improper Plumbing' - AUDIO

Screen Shot 2014-12-06 at 4.02.41 PMPastor Jim Garlow made rather laughable comments about gay marriage when he called in to the "Point of View," radio program saying its supporters should live in homes that plumbers and electricians built without understanding the male and female end of piping, plumbing and electrical reports Right Wing WatchGarlow, pastor of the evangelical Christian Skyline Church located in La Mesa, Calif., somehow believes this example is representative of heterosexual couplings and that male and female "parts," are needed to have a fully functioning house, whereas a house without both "doesn't work."

Garlow's comments come after the Vatican's recent summit on marriage. This week also saw other religious leaders and supporters issue nonsensical comments about gay marriage in response to the summit.

Callers Threaten To Behead Kansas Pastor For Performing Same-Sex Marriages: VIDEO

Carter

The pastor of the Metropolitan Community Church in Wichita, Kansas, says she's been receiving about one threatening phone call a day since same-sex marriage became legal there last month. 

The Rev. Jackie Carter says the calls have ranged from heavy breathing to someone threatening to cut off her head off and carry it through the town square on a stick. 

This past Monday, someone called the church, rang the doorbell and threw rocks at the windows all at the same time, The Wichita Eagle reports: 

“Honestly, I’m beginning to get more scared every day that this goes on,” she said. “I’ve kind of talked myself into trying to be more calm about it and realizing that there are more people out there that are supporting us than threatening harm to us.”

She said the church has instructed people to leave the building in pairs, especially at night, for safety. Carter said that she has reported some of the threats to the Wichita Police Department, but that the department’s ability to investigate is limited because the callers have been anonymous and no number shows up on the church’s caller ID.

Even a leading opponent of same-sex marriage, conservative Wichita pastor Terry Fox, is condemning the threats: 

“Anybody who does something like that, there’s nothing Christian about threatening someone bodily damage or something like that. In fact it’s about as unchristian as anything can be,” Fox said. “And it helps no one’s cause. If anything, it hurts that cause. It breaks my heart to hear that anyone would have to endure those kinds of threats from the right or anywhere else.”

Last month, Carter performed a group wedding ceremony for 15 same-sex couples on the steps of the county courthouse. The ceremony was interrupted by a protester chanting "God says no," but the wedding party drowned him out with chants of "God says yes" as he was led away. 

"I'm not going to change my message of inclusion, I'm not going to change my message of love, and I'm not going to stop marrying people. I'm going to keep it up," Carter told KSN.com.

Ben Carson: Gay Rights Activists Inspire Hatred, Are 'Enemies Of America' - VIDEO

6a00d8341c730253ef01a73d8b51c3970d-800wi

Anti-gay activist Dr. Ben Carson, who has compared gays to pedophiles and people who have sex with animals, thinks that supporters of gay rights are using “hate speech” to split the U.S. apart, reports Right Wing Watch

6a00d8341c730253ef01a3fd2eb406970b-800wiIn an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network last Tuesday, Carson - who thinks that being bisexual means you have to have sex with men and women at the same time - also implied that god has suggested he should consider running for president.

He added that gay rights activists are “hateful people” and “the enemies” of America because they “try to divide everybody up” and “incite people to anger and to hatred.”

“A good example would be somebody who is pro-life, the inciters would come along and say, ‘you’re anti-women, you hate women’ and they try to get women to hate you, when in fact you love women, you just happen also to love life and love babies. But that’s how they try to create the divisions.

“Somebody who is pro-traditional-family, they’ll come up and say, ‘he’s a homophobe, they hate gay people, they’re nasty’ and they just try to incite all this stuff really to further their own agendas.”

Carson failed to make clear how his incitement to hatred against gay people fits into the scheme.

Fast becoming a familiar theme among anti-gay wingnuts, earlier this week Scott Lively said that the continued acceptance of gay rights is leading to the destruction of the United States.  It has since been announced that Lively will stand trial for crimes against humanity because of his mission to instigate anti-gay laws in countries including Uganda and Russia.

Catholic League's Bill Donohue: Anti-Gay Christians Are Kinda-Sorta Being Persecuted Like ISIS Victims - VIDEO

Billboard2

Possibly sensing they are a dying breed gasping their last breath of hate, anti-gay religious right wingnuts are increasingly comparing their embattled selves to victims of ISIS.

Latest to the game is Bill Donohue of the Catholic League who earlier this week unveiled a Christmas billboard in Los Angeles that draws a comparison between the experiences of American “Christians” - the ones who spend their lives spreading anti-Christian messages - and Christians facing persecution in ISIS-controlled territories.

Full of Christmas spirit, Donohue also makes it clear that gay people who refuse to take abuse from the religious right in silence are in fact the intolerant ones.

According to Right Wing Watch, in a statement, Donohue said that the billboard is aimed at Hollywood:

“No, the Hollywood moguls who disrespect Christians are not the same as radical Muslims who behead us, but both are full of hate. Moreover, both need to be challenged. Christians are fed up with the barbarians abroad and the bigots at home. It’s time all these bullies learned to practice the virtue of tolerance and the meaning of diversity.”

Happy Christmas to you too, Bill.

Donahue has also excused himself from next year's New York St. Patrick's Day Parade following the decision to allow one corporate LGBT group to participate.
