Gay-bashing, anti-Semitic U.S. pastor dupes rabbis into appearing in film

Steven Anderson working on film titled ‘Marching to Zion’ that aims to prove Jews are no longer God’s chosen people.

A controversial American pastor duped four rabbis, including one who is a Holocaust survivor, into appearing in a film that aims to prove “Jews are no longer God’s chosen people.”

Arizona-based news outlets report that Steven Anderson, who heads the Faith Temple Baptist Church in Tempe, is working on a film titled “Marching to Zion.”

The promotional video for the film says its goal is “to prove that the Jews are no longer God’s chosen people in the New Testament but that we as believers, we as Christians, are God’s chosen people [and] that the modern-day nation of Israel over in the Middle East is a complete fraud.”

Anderson’s church is among the “most hardcore anti-LGBT hate groups,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which says the pastor recently said the U.S. could have an AIDS-free Christmas if all gays are killed, as the Bible demands. He has also previously prayed for President Barack Obama’s death.

Now Anderson has turned his attention to the Jews, according to a blog post on the Phoenix New Times.

“These days, Anderson is all about bashing the Jews on YouTube where he posts hate-filled sermons with such snappy titles as ‘The Jews and Their Lies,’ ‘Jews Are Anti-Christs,’ ‘Christ-Rejecting Jews Are Children of the Devil,’ ‘The Jews Are Our Enemies,’ and the ever-popular, ‘The Jews Killed Jesus,'” writes Stephen Lemons of the New Times.

Anderson has outraged the Jewish community and the Anti-Defamation League with his recent antics – especially tricking four local rabbis into appearing in his film, which has been deemed anti-Semitic.

Anderson allegedly described himself as “an interested layperson” making a documentary about the Jewish faith, Arizona’s Jewish News reported.

“The subterfuge that he used to get these interviews from us is beyond belief,” Rabbi Irwin Wiener told the Jewish News.

Anderson reportedly told the rabbis he was making the documentary for the Public Broadcasting System. “When he used the words PBS to me, it sounded legitimate and I didn’t pursue it any further,” Wiener said.

In a press release on Anderson’s film, the ADL said it was “deeply troubled by the upcoming release of a new ‘documentary’ geared toward Christian audiences that purportedly will focus on ‘the history of the Jews,’ but in fact will likely serve as a tool for denigrating Jews and Judaism.”

“Pastor Steve Anderson’s warped views of Jews and Judaism are a perversion of our faith and people,” said Rabbi David Sandmel, ADL director of Interfaith Affairs. “It is deeply troubling when a pastor uses his pulpit to misinform fellow Christians about the nature of Judaism and to promote hateful anti-Semitic myths.”

Pastor Anderson Hates on the Jews

from Voice Media Group

Wacko Tempe preacher Steven Anderson is now in the anti-Semitism business, and has been posting sermons to YouTube with such snappy titles as “The Jews and Their Lies,” “Jews Are Antichrists,” and “Christ-Rejecting Jews Are the Children of the Devil.”

That would be bad enough, but Anderson also recently convinced four local rabbis to participate in his upcoming DVD Marching to Zion, which promises to address the same sick themes. The rabbis, one of whom is a Holocaust survivor, say Anderson was not upfront about his intentions. In this segment from one of Anderson’s live YouTube shows, Anderson admits as much when New Times reporter Stephen Lemons calls in.

Baptist preacher prays for suicide of gay Christian author


This 2008 video from the USA is called Michael Moore vs Westboro Baptist Church.

From Christian Today:

New Zealand pastor prayed for suicide of gay Christian author

Published 08 December 2014

A Baptist pastor says he stands by his email to a gay Christian author who he referred to as a “filthy child molesting fag”.

“I pray that you will commit suicide,” Pastor Logan Robertson of the Westcity Bible Baptist Church wrote in a response to an email from Jim Marjoram, who was promoting his book detailing his struggles as a gay Christian.

“We’re not interested in your filthy lifestyle or book.” Robertson said in an email now posted online.

“Romans 1 clearly says God has rejected homos and they are worthy of death. You cannot be saved…The bible says you are vile, strange (queer), reprobate, filth, sodmote [sic], natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed (2 Peter 2:12).”

Robertson then refused to speak to ONE news reporter, Matt McClean, who is gay, about the incident.

He allegedly told McClean that he would not give an interview to a “filthy faggot”.

In a separate interview, however, he stood by his earlier claims. “I think every single one of them [gay people] should be put to death,” Robertson said.

“Christians shouldn’t be doing it. I’m not going to do it, it’s the Government’s job to be doing it.”

His words have been condemned by the National Leader of Baptist Churches of New Zealand, Rev Craig Vernall.

Vernall confirmed that Westcity Bible Baptist Church is not a member of the union, and said he was “appalled” by Robertson’s comments.

“It’s unfathomable to be that any Christian would pray for someone to commit suicide,” Vernall told GayNZ.com.

“We cannot and never would endorse his comments.”

Robertson is described as having a “love for the lost” on his church’s website, but Marjoram has said: “what you’re preaching isn’t love”.

“And if you call yourself a Christian…Jesus wouldn’t go anywhere near that,” he added.

It seems that Westcity Bible Baptist Church in New Zealand is rather like Westboro Baptist Church in the USA.

Kill all gays, ‘reverend’ United States preacher preaches

Baptist Pastor Prays For President Obama To Die & Go To Hell! “Our Country Is Ran By Faggots

27 August 2009

“Pastor Steve Anderson from the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Arizona wants Barack Obama dead—-reveals it during several sermons. Says that he is “Only preaching the Bible.” I don’t know what bible he is reading, but the bible I read never said that God wants homosexuals dead.

From daily The Independent in Britain:

US pastor Steven Anderson says gay people should be executed for an ‘Aids free Christmas’

The Arizona pastor said the ‘cure’ for Aids was contained in Leviticus

Antonia Molloy

Thursday 04 December 2014

A US Christian pastor has claimed that the world could be “Aids free by Christmas” if all gay people were executed.

In a sermon titled “Aids: The Judgement of God”, Steven Anderson told the congregation of the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona, that the Bible advocates genocide of LGBT people.

“Anybody who’s a homo or bi – it’s all the same category – sodomite is what the Bible would call them,” he said.

Speaking ahead of World Aids Day, which took place on 1 December, Anderson said the world had been “brainwashed” about the disease, which he claimed was in fact “the judgement of God”.

In a sermon during which he ranted and stomped his feet, he said he had discovered the “cure” for Aids in the book of Leviticus.

He said: “We can have an Aids free world by Christmas. Okay, it wouldn’t be totally Aids free, but we’d be like 90-some per cent Aids free by Christmas if we follow this.”

Telling his audience to turn to Leviticus 20:13, Anderson read aloud: “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, even both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.”

He then said: “And that, my friend, is the cure for Aids. It was right there in the Bible all along – and they’re out spending billions of dollars in research and testing. It’s curable – right there. Because if you executed the homos like God recommends, you wouldn’t have all this AIDS running rampant.”

As the audience laughed, Anderson went on to quote “statistics” that he claimed proved that contracting HIV was directly related to being “homo”.

In the sermon he also stated that “no queers [are] allowed in this church” and boasted that there was no law against his rule. Anderson claimed that all gay people are paedophiles who would pose a threat to children in the congregation.

And he also suggested that openly condemning homosexuality was part of loving God and practising the Christian faith.

Anderson has gained a reputation as a fundamentalist and hate-preacher. He caused particular controversy in 2009 when he professed his hate for US President Barack Obama and prayed for him to die and go to hell.

He has also claimed that women who take the contraceptive pill are “whores” whose blood has turned green.

For someone who claims to know the Bible inside out, Anderson obviously didn’t read the part about loving one another…

United States homophobe Scott Lively attacks lesbian Christian musician


This video from Britain is called Vicky Beeching – first TV interview about coming out as gay. August 14th 2014. Channel 4 News.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Anti-gay pastor slammed for berating Vicky Beeching

Saturday 16th August 2014

CAMPAIGNERS slammed a homophobic US pastor who took to TV studios to berate musician Vicky Beeching after she came out as gay.

Church minister and Christian rock star Ms Beeching received widespread support after she disclosed her lesbianism in a newspaper interview. She said she had vowed to come out after suffering an auto-immune disease from the stress of keeping her sexuality a secret.

But on Channel 4 News on Thursday night, she was paired with anti-gay pastor Scott Lively, who told her she had “given in to a lie.”

Stonewall spokesman Richard Lane said: “Scott Lively is a clear demonstration of the huge amount of work left to do to eradicate discrimination against lesbian, gay and bisexual people.

“Lively has proudly boasted about his work to introduce draconian anti-gay Bills in Uganda and Russia. Thankfully, with role models like Vicky Beeching, young people will know that you can be gay and practise your faith. That’s a truly inspirational message.”

A homosexual French Muslim imam is spreading a message of religion and tolerance in Europe. In addition to opening a gay-friendly mosque in Paris, he also recently married a lesbian couple in Sweden: here.

Christian fundamentalists ban women from seeing football World Cup


Dutch, Brazilian female football fans, ANP photo

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:

Women not welcome at Spain vs. The Netherlands football match

That is the first match of the Dutch national team at the World Cup tournament in Brazil; on 13 June.

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

As a woman, you would like to watch with your husband the first match of the Dutch team [in Brazil]? That will not work in Veenendaal. At least, not if you were planning to see it in the big sports hall, local broadcasters RTV Utrecht report.

The organization of the event, the Christian ManUnited, has deliberately chosen to exclude women. ManUnited is exclusively for men. The organization was looking for an event where many men can get together. The World Cup matches are such a perfect opportunity.

A total of 1500 men can watch the game against Spain in the sports hall, on the big screen. The organization hopes that especially fathers with sons will attend the event.

I hope that many fathers and sons, along with women, will speak out against this sexism against mothers and daughters.

Besides these sexist religious fundamentalists, there are also ultra-fundamentalists, who say that watching TV is satanic. And ultra-fundamentalists, who say that football is satanic. Sarcastically, one might say that these ultra-fundamentalists, though sexist in many other ways, at least don’t discriminate against women in this; as they want to ban both men and women from seeing the football World Cup.
