Pastor On Orlando Massacre: ‘These People All Should Have Been Killed

13 June 2016

Pastor Steven Anderson, whose hate knows no bounds, celebrated the deaths of 50 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando in a 4-minute mini-sermon that cited the Bible as justification for why they needed to die.

Better known United States fundamentalist preacher Pat Robertson also claimed the victims of the Orlando mass murder ‘deserved it’.

And these two preachers are not the only ones.

Anti-Gay Pastor Found Guilty Of Child Molestation

The jury needed only two hours to find him guilty on all eight counts.

Last June, Georgia pastor Kenneth Adkins made headlines when he tweeted that gay people who died in the Orlando, Florida, nightclub shooting got what they deserved.

He made headlines of a different sort on Monday when he was found guilty of sexually molesting a teenage girl and boy.

The ‘Reverend‘ Kenneth Adkins is not the only homophobic ‘Reverend’ in a sexual abuse scandal. So is, eg, Scottish Roman Catholic Cardinal Keith O’Brien. As a cardinal, not just ‘Reverend’, but ‘Most Eminent’.

And there was Dutch Roman Catholic homophobic child abusing Bishop Gijsen. Being a bishop, also not just ‘Reverend’, but ‘Most Reverend’ and ‘Excellency’.

Like the Roman Catholic Archbishop of St. Paul and Minneapolis in the USA, John C. Nienstedt. The Most Reverend John C. Nienstedt claimed that equal marriage for gay people was the work of Satan; but had to resign in a child abuse scandal.

A jury of three men and nine women deliberated for about two hours before finding the 57-year-old pastor guilty of three charges of child molestation, three charges of aggravated child molestation, and two charges of enticing a child for indecent purposes, according to FirstCoastNews.com.

Adkins did not react as the verdict was being read aloud in the Glynn County courtroom. He did not testify on his own behalf during the trial, according to ActionNewsJax.com.

Before the clergyman turned himself in last August, he had led congregations in Atlanta and Brunswick, Georgia, as well as in Jacksonville, Florida.

He was originally booked on one charge of child molestation and one charge of aggravated child molestation. At the time of his arrest, Adkins’ lawyer Kenneth Gough told WJCT that those incidents dated back to 2010.

“Warrants say that these events took place in 2010 and that’s a long time,” Gough said. “We don’t know why they’re coming up now.”

Additional charges were filed after the initial arrest, and Adkins has been held without bail since then.

Adkins is scheduled for sentencing on April 25, according to News4Jax. He faces up to life in prison.

“I know he was back there praying,” Gough told the station. “We were disappointed with the verdict, but we respect it. It’s part of our jury system, but we will be filing a notice of appeal, obviously.”

Adkins garnered attention two days after the Orlando shooting when he sent a tweet that read, “Been through so much with these Jacksonville homosexuals that I don’t see none of them as victims. I see them as getting what they deserve!!”

He told The Florida Times-Union that the tweet had nothing to do with the 49 people just massacred in Orlando and was solely a reference to the debate over expanding Jacksonville’s anti-discrimination protections to LGBTQ people. (He opposed that, too). But the tweet, which has since been made private, followed a string of other tweets about the shooting.
