Steven Anderson, self-titled Pope of the New Independent Fundamentalist Baptist Church and pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church is busy cementing his status as most hateful pastor in America. Steven and pals are gearing up for a conference this weekend. “Make America Straight Again” is what they are calling it.
I have other names for it. Unfortunately none of them are printable and I’m trying to make an effort not to spew dirty words. But it’s difficult when the subject is Anderson.
This is the anniversary week of the third anniversary of the tragic Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando. The same shooting that Anderson was positively gleeful over, saying that the death of LGBTQ people was to be celebrated. Later Steven tried to backtrack, claiming he does not want to kill LGBTQ people, he just wants the government to start doing it.
The last time Anderson was so openly hateful towards the gay community his family received death threats. His kids, his wife.
I hope that does not happen again. As much as Zsuzsanna Anderson might be not feeding her children, or be a very bad parent I would hope no one blames them for the ignorance pouring out of her husband’s mouth.
This particular go around it looks likely to happen again. The conference happens this weekend in Florida and one of the lead pastors has already been quoted as saying things that seem merely to be stated to inflame violence.
Here’s what NIFB pastor Tommy McMurtry has had said:
“Pray that if they do any protests that it gets violent … they have Stand Your Ground in Florida”
Pastor Tommy McMurtry
He continues to say that since they can fight back he wants people to become violent so that he can legally “protect” himself against people he perceives to be “an easy win.” The NIFB is known for brandishing weapons and stalking their critics.
Found this on a website that is tracking Steven Anderson and the churches which are now aligned as New Independent Fundamentalist Baptist. It is frightening to see how many churches are now part of Steven’s fiefdom of hate. This is not just a single small church listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, now it’s a movement.
This conference has the potential for extreme violence. We all know what a violent out of control gun nut many in the NIFB are, and it sounds like they’re looking forward to an armed situation so that they can kill others. Real Jesus-y of them, isn’t it?
I leave you with this, a short video by one of Steven Anderson’s follower pastors, explaining the difference between the genders in a rather crude, uneducated, and foolish way. He says if you ‘cain’t’ tell the difference then just truck on down to the Lowe’s and look at the plumbing supplies. This is the caliber of mind attending and leading this hateful conference. How did we get here so quickly?
I don’t think America has ever been all that ‘straight’ as Anderson claims. It was just well hidden. We should not go back to making a portion of our citizens hide their true natures just because a few homophobes are uncomfortable with the idea.
