If you thought the Tweet by Dan Patrick was bad, the video by Christian Pastor Steven Anderson is many magnitudes worse. In a recent video, Anderson says that he is glad the Orlando massacre happened because there are now less gay people in the world. Here is some text from the video:

So, you know, the good news is that at least 50 of these pedophiles are not gonna be harming children anymore. The bad news is that a lot of the homos in the bar are still alive, so they’re gonna continue to molest children and recruit people into their filthy homosexual lifestyle…

… I’m not sad about it, I’m not gonna cry about it. Because these… 50 people in a gay bar that got shot up, they were gonna die of AIDS, and syphilis, and whatever else. They were all gonna die early, anyway, because homosexuals have a 20-year shorter life-span than normal people, anyway…

Wow. Absolutely atrocious. This is what LGBTQ people are saying when religion perpetuates toxic ideas about homosexuality. This kind of language only exacerbates the difficulties the LGBTQ community has to deal with. Pastor Anderson should be ashamed of himself and I hope other Christians continue to condemn him.

UPDATE: Youtube has deleted Anderson’s video because it violated it’s policy on hate speech. I included another video that saved his original video.
