Pastor Stephen Anderson of the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona, is once again talking about the "Sodomite" American culture with some of the most inflammatory rhetoric that I've heard in quite some time.
The Inquisitr previously brought you the story of Anderson's shocking suggestion for an "AIDS cure" -- long story short, he advised killing all homosexuals -- and now he has set his sights on Caitlyn Jenner, or as he refers to him in the sermon you're about to hear, "This Bruce freak!"
The sermon dealt with the topic of praying for your enemies, and according to Anderson, that isn't always something you're obligated to do as a Christian.
It didn't take long for him to land on the Caitlyn Jenner story. Here are some of the more stunning things that he had to say.
"This filthy Sodomite picture is everywhere, and people are showing this transvestite or transgender or whatever this guy is, you know what I'm talking about? This, this athlete or whoever he is, I don't know who he is, I'd never even heard of him before this week. Bruce Jenner has basically mutilated his body and he's being praised by our President. Our President Obama is praising him, or praising her, for we don't know what it is!"Stephen Anderson then called Jenner a "filthy pervert" and expressed disgust at him being "on all these magazine covers and just everywhere being crammed down our throat."
"Literally like hundreds of millions of people — literally hundreds of millions of people are being subjected to looking at this. A transfreak. This person is just the evangelist of sodomy and filth to the world. And then people are like, 'Oh we need to pray for him that he finds Jesus.' I'm gonna pray that he dies and goes to Hell. Are you serious? I have nothing but hate — when I see a man dressed up as a woman, who has mutilated his body to become a woman and saying, 'Hey look at me everybody, look at me kids!' Kids in America today — five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10 years old — are seeing this freak and having their minds perverted and ruined permanently. I hate him with a perfect hatred! I have no love — no love! — for this Bruce freak!"After this rant, Stephen Anderson used Psalm 69 to justify his "perfect hatred" (verses 22 through 28 in particular).
"22 May the table set before them become a snare;may it become retribution and[b] a trap.23 May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see,and their backs be bent forever.24 Pour out your wrath on them;let your fierce anger overtake them.25 May their place be deserted;let there be no one to dwell in their tents.26 For they persecute those you woundand talk about the pain of those you hurt.27 Charge them with crime upon crime;do not let them share in your salvation.28 May they be blotted out of the book of lifeand not be listed with the righteous."I haven't even begun to share what the pastor says about Caitlyn Jenner and President Obama.
