This is the strange image over the doors of a nearby church. An angel preparing to beat the stuffing out of something or someone. There are consequences for actions.

This morning I saw that Hemant Mehta of the Patheos column The Friendly Atheist beat us all to the press by exposing that hate preacher Steven Anderson is now officially banned from the 34th country. It is New Zealand this time.  He’d been planning on visiting soon on one of his nag everyone into accepting his cult views trips he calls “Soul Winning” What is interesting to note about this is that it seems when Quiverfulls, like Zsuzsanna and Steven Anderson, the Duggars, the Rodrigueses, the  Wilsons, the Pearls and the others get enormous pushback they claim to be persecuted. Instead of what it really genuinely is, logical outcomes determined by their own bad behavior.

There are a pile of people on the Quiverfull radar right now all experiencing natural consequences to their words and actions. As well there should be. Actions/words have consequences, and should have consequences no matter who you are. You would not expect to kick the snot out of a fully loaded buzzing angry hornet’s nest without expecting to be stung, right? Then why do these folks all expect there to be zero consequences for their behavior? It isn’t even in the Bible they claim to follow.

Recently Steven’s wife, Zsuzsanna, post this hideous tidbit about what she thinks AIDS sufferers should undergo on her Facebook page.

You know who else tattooed people to identify them as different from everyone else. Adolph Hitler during World War II. He had all Jews, Gays, Gypsys, Mentally ill and others he considered unfit once they were in the concentration camps. Is that really something we want to emulate for any reason?

So between antics like this, and the many times Steven Anderson has called for the execution of Homosexuals it stands to reason that other nations would ban him.

Steven is literally reaping what he and Zsuzsanna have sown. Hey! That IS Biblical!

One of the other things I’ve seen this week is a pile of people on Reddit comparing the Jill and David Rodrigues children to the photos of the Turpin family children. In particularly the thinness of the children in comparison to the not so thinness of the parents.

Remember the Turpins? The California couple who was Quiverfull who kept trying to get a television show ala the Duggars, while starving their children, beating them, locking them up with chains, ignoring medical needs, educational needs and a host of other needs normal families provide for their children. Those people.

Why are strangers speculating on the possibility of children being underfed and neglected? Because the Rodrigues family, particularly family matriarch Jill Rodrigues has relentlessly promoted her family via social media and everywhere else. She’s also tried for years to get media interested in her family, and their own television show.

All this is starting to make me wonder if  a large part of the Quiverfull movement are prone to narcissistic behaviors. The relentless promotion of your family pitched to television and other media just strikes me as bizarre.

The reality, the consequences of promoting her children everywhere for Jill Rodrigues is that strangers are now picking apart the appearance of her kids and she is red hot mad about this, posting on Facebook referring to it:

Speculating over children isn’t something I approve of, but I get it. It happens because of the actions of the parents. The Rodrigueses are hardly alone in this. How many Duggar family friends now have television shows?

Add in various tantrums recently of Lori Alexander, Tim Bayly and Douglas Wilson and it’s pretty easy to see that this “Demonic persecution” they all claim is merely the natural consequence of their words and actions. If you are going to promote outre outlier theology you’re going to get some negative feedback.

May 16, 2019

Last week it was announced that head of the New IFB and pastor at Faithful Word Baptist Church Steven Anderson has been banned from Ireland. This is literally the first time anyone has been officially banned from the Emerald Isle. First person ever.  Driven out like Saint Patrick supposedly removed the snakes from Ireland.

But this is not Anderson’s first time being banned from a country. He’s been banned from entering South Africa, Great Britain, Scotland, Malawi, Canada, the Netherlands and Botswana.

Steven had a copy of the letter banning him from the Netherlands up at his website. The Netherlands banning is more crucial that his other bans because it blocks him from entering any other country that is part of the European Union. That’s a lot of countries he can no longer go on ‘soul winning’ missions in.

That’s a pretty radical step, the government of a country blacklisting him. What for, I hear you say, an entire laundry list of offenses. From the RationalWiki entry on Anderson with further explanations from NLQ:

  • Bullying people for the way they look, think, and act by making judgments about their sexuality.
  • Making false accusations about someone. He has done this many times with many different pastors. Remember his recent accusations against Adam Fannin, the guy he calls the Polka Dot Pastor and Jeff Durbin? These are only a few of the folks that Anderson has seemingly slandered or libeled in his quest to root out homosexuality and other sins.
  • Forcing a sexuality on someone for arbitrary reasons (calling someone a homosexual because they’re a celebrity, appeal to women and teen girls, or “look effeminate”). Steven loves to blame trendy styles, skinny jeans, polka dots, wearing shoes while running and all sorts of weird things as gay.
  • Praying for death onto others. Back during the Obama administration Anderson prayed and spoke about his believe that President Obama should die. He prays for the deaths of anyone of a different sexuality than his.
  • Using childish derogatory terms like “libtard”, “faggot”, “queer”, “sissy”, “retard” and “homo” to describe people, including other pastors and president Obama and claims it as “Biblical language”. If there is a demeaning name for a people group Anderson has shown himself not shy about using those names.
  • Generalizing people because of a minority. “All actors are sodomite faggots” and “People who don’t like me are homos”. This applies most strongly to anyone that does not live exactly like Anderson does.
  • Attacking other preachers because they don’t preach against homosexuality, abortion or other religions. He does not confine his attacks on pastors to mere preaching. Anderson also likes to speculate on the sexuality of other pastors based on the way they dress and other minor things.
  • Attacking other peoples’ religions. He is a Holocaust denier and has openly mocked Catholicism and many other mainstream religions from the pulpit. Most of which can be viewed on his YouTube channel.
  • Attacking other Christian fundamentalists (Ray Comfort, Jack Chick) for not believing exactly like he does. Anyone whose theology does  not line up 100% with his own is a target for his scorn.
  • Mocking people with disabilities such as autism and Down syndrome. He and his wife Zsuzsanna do not believe in vaccinations or most routine medical treatmeants, mocking “Big Pharma” or a government scheme to control people.
    • Or believing that those disabilities are just a pharmaceutical hoax and that they “just need more beatings”.
  • Mocking anyone that disagrees with or questions him. This includes violently threatening people and having them physically removed from his church for merely asking questions.
  • Mocking anyone he disagrees with. Again, he will invent things, or come up with a train of reasoning leaving those he dislikes into his demonizing them.
  • Circular reasoning He’s not educated or smart enough to actually be able to defend his positions beyond quoting the King James Bible and spewing insults.
  • Yelling at people to leave if they don’t agree with him or question him. See above.
  • Claiming that all actors that women “idolize” are “sodomite faggots” who “don’t even like women” such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Keanu Reeves (claims that he acted in “sodomite porn”, but of course has no proof of this), Justin Bieber (who is actually a singer, not an actor), Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp. He acts like a jealous 14 year old boy who is somehow threatened by popular celebrities.
  • Basically hates all celebrities and mocks any that die such as Prince and George Michael. Steven loves to use dead celebrities to make claims about them being in hell, or having been pedophiles.
  • Tricked Holocaust survivors into appearing in a self produced film denying that the Holocaust happened at all.
  • Churning out films based on simplistic and false conspiracy theories too crackpot even for Alex Jones.

Quite the list. How is it that he’s not been picked up on a psych hold for a few weeks with this list of dysfunction? There is a lot more that Anderson has done but this seems to be the apex of his evil.

Quiverfull: Inside the Christian Patriarchy Movement by Kathryn Joyce

I Fired God by Jocelyn Zichtermann

13:24 A Dark Thriller by M Dolon Hickmon

April 16, 2019

It’s Holy Week, Anderson needs to cool it with the barefoot running before he accidentally pierces his feet.

Missed this one until this morning. Apparently Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church has hit something of a major bump in the road. Yesterday he discovered that Bank of America had frozen his bank accounts. They closed Steven’s accounts for the church, and have told him that they’ll send him a cashier’s check for the balances in about two weeks.

He is losing it over the fact that this occurred during the Superbowl of Christianity – Holy Week. Plot of the devil!

Oh of course Anderson has taken to YouTube to beat on his chest and call Bank of America sodomite lovers and reprobates as well as tell Bank of America to go to hell.

Everyone’s favorite conspiracy theory lunatic Alex Jones even did a segment about it on Info Wars. Apparently it is not unheard of with these major banks. If you happen to be a controversial figure fronting an organization that may have questionable activities that violates the constitution you stand the possibility of losing your bank account.

What he does not do is explain what they told him is the reason they shut is accounts. Let’s look at the possible reasons a bank might shut your account with zero notice.

I’m not a banker, I’ve never worked in a bank and have only the slightest idea of what that entails.I have close friends and relatives who have worked at a bank for some years, but that does not make me an expert. So I had to call around and talk to several people at my own bank for the reasons why an account is closed or seized against the will of the account holder. This is not an exhaustive list. Plus anyone can read through the information on accounts at Bank of America.

  • Minimum balance – Some banks have requirements on their accounts that they must maintain a certain balance level to keep that account.
  • Suspected illegal activity – This one can vary from state to state as to the culpability of the bank if they suspect their account holder is engaged in bad acts. Most banks chose to err on the side of caution due to the stringent rules they must comply with and close suspected accounts, freezing the funds for so many days before release.
  • Owing a debt to the bank – If you have money in a bank and own that same bank money on a debt, a house loan, or a car loan, some states allow seizure of the account to pay the debt.
  • Owing the IRS – A bit different than owing the bank but it can freeze your account legally until the debt is settled. Simply changing banks will not work. The IRS will merely get another order to seize that account.
  • Identity theft – If there is activity in the account that indicates that someone else has hacked into the account and is masquerading as the account holder.
  • Inactivity – This one takes a very long time but it does happen. If an account has no deposits or withdrawals over a long period of time the bank may close the account.
  • Unverifiable information – Perhaps you are using an address that someone else who has committed bank fraud also uses. Or you have set up the account going to a fictitious address. Due to federal banking regulations the banks are rather strict that you must have clear information connected to the account.
  • Hassle – When the account becomes too much of a problem, too many people are servicing the account and the focus of customer service is constantly dealing with an enormous problem. It could be multiple bouncing checks, even if they are covered quickly, or someone that comes in continually and hassles the workers. Banks are in the business of making money, but if the cost of making that money becomes too high they will ax the account. This last one is unofficial, but it does happen.

There are others but these seem to be the biggest reasons. Whatever the reasons the bank usually reaches out multiple times to the account holder before taking any action. Unless it’s something that can tarnish the bank’s reputation, then the account is mercilessly closed without notice.

“The damage to the bank in terms of negative word-of-mouth publicity isn’t something they want.”

This is what I think might be happening here. Bank of America does not want to be associated with a known member of a group listed as an official hate group. The Proud Boys and others identified as hate groups, or white supremacy groups have also lost their banking privileges.

Of course all the recent allegations of financial chicanery going on at other branches of the New Independent Fundamentalist Baptist church group that Anderson leads could also be a problem. Banks have no tolerance for being involved in possible illegal schemes or thievery. Former Stedfast Baptist leader Adam Fannin seemed pretty convincing in his words that money was being taken.

Steven is claiming this is good old Christian persecution at the hands of Satan,but it’s more likely he’s suspected of illegal activity or just being a problem. Imagine that, Anderson as a problem customer.

Banks do not close accounts for no reason. Likely Steven Anderson has done something to bring this down upon his own head. This is not even the first time Anderson has had issues with banking and currency. He’s been tossed off Bitcoin and had several PayPal accounts closed for his hateful views.

I didn’t reach out to Bank of America because banks are understandably closed mouthed about their customers. More as this develops.

If you are an Anderson supporter coming in to call me a hating hater who hates please read this first.

Today’s post started at 6 am this morn. I added to it all day long as I kept checking back on the rolling cluster you know what going on in Steven Anderson’s ‘New’ IFB. Someone called him the Pope of the New IFB, he seems more than the Enforcer from here.

It seems that there is a great deal of infighting right now in Donnie Romero’s church spin off, Stedfast Church in Jacksonville, Florida. Steven Anderson, head of their hate-cult ‘The New IFB”, is fighting with Adam Fannin, the pastor of Stedfast Baptist of Jacksonville.

Romero was the head pastor of the church, and that of Stedfast in Texas. There’s a ‘Pastor Shelley’ involved in the mess. It smells like a nasty church split from here. Turns out that Pastor Shelley is anti-vaxxer and anti-medicine and will be taking over Stedfast Baptist in Fort Worth very shortly.

Fannin is claiming that there is a great deal about Romero that has not be exposed. Would not be surprised at all. Fannin is claiming that the decisions being made by Anderson that are ‘creating jerks in the movement.’ In other words they are starting to fight over who exactly is in charge. Plus there are all sorts of accusations over money. Fannin is saying that Steven Anderson has his hands in the church cookie jar, has been taking and using their money for God himself only knows what. That’s all I know.

Here are their competing videos complaining about each other.

First Anderson:

…and now Adam Fannin. Somehow he seems like a more reasonable and less bizarre option than Anderson, but that would not take much:

I don’t know much about these guys disagreement. I do know that Anderson is over the top sick. But here’s another detail I am hearing about the situation. Lesley Romero is being blamed and accused over her husband’s sins, yes, a woman is being blamed yet again for what her husband does. Typical. We knew this would happen because it always does sadly enough.

Not sure it’s a church if the church name is a misspelled word.

In the confusion over who is and isn’t a pastor involving Anderson he has been preaching at Stedfast Baptist in Fort Worth. On what subject? Making fun of pastor Jeff Durbin visiting Ireland and the Guinness brewery. Classic make fun of people he thinks might be gay. Most childish pastor of all time.

Hmm, interesting. Here was are at 11 am on a Sunday at Mountain Time and someone else is in Anderson’s pulpit back in Faithful Word Baptist Church in Arizona. Why is that? Is there going to be more machinations at Fort Worth?

Turns out Steven Anderson is still in Fort Worth, Texas abusing folks and singing some awful old hymns. If your stomach is strong enough  here’s his service today:

ETA: If you have come here to defend Steven Anderson and pals please read our comment policy first before posting. I have no trouble banning and blocking those of you that violate it on purpose.

Screen cap of Steven Anderson demonstrating his ultra macho running style by being barefoot in the desert. Nothing to prove there, not his sexuality, no siree bob!

Yesterday someone sent me this clip of pastor Steven Anderson’s most unhinged rants. It’s a mish-mash of flaming homophobia in which Anderson demonstrates God-approved hetero sex with with, are you ready for it, a bolt and nut.

That is pretty crazy, but it does not even begin to hold the crazy candle to the rantings of Anderson against a pastor by the name of Jeff Durbin. Now, I don’t know all the details why Anderson is so obsessed with Durbin’s possible sexuality, but when you read through Anderson’s own transcript of the text conversation  two things leap out.

  1. Anderson could not possibly be any more scary, delusional and not rational with his questions.
  2. Durbin was remarkably polite, restrained and lucid when confronted by this madness.

Take a look for yourself of this short section:

I am amazed and impressed that the other pastor managed to be so restrained in the face of this none of his business probing by Anderson. Following this piece is an ‘analysis’ of the text conversation by Anderson’s wife Zsuzsanna that is nearly as weird as the conversation.

The guy that sent me this clip has a theory about Steven Anderson that just might be right. He thinks that Anderson is the natural result of the many years of the Independent Fundamentalist Baptist Church becoming more toxic and insular as time has passed. He is the distillation of their worst impulses.

What is terrifying about all of this is that Anderson does have supporters, not just his tiny echo chamber of a church Faithful Word Baptist Church. He is global, with thousands of misguided supporters who flock to his hate speech like bees to poisoned honey.

Edited to add this new video someone just sent me:

December 29, 2018

First up for the Steven Anderson family I just have to share this screen cap from his wife, Zsuzsanna Anderson. It’s of a homeschooling worksheet by daughter Miriam.

Miriam is now 11 years old according to Zsuzsanna’s blog. I know that Zsuzsanna is homeschooling those children. I know that with the large number of children she has it has to be hard to stay on top of everyone’s unique educational needs. I know that the issues with having to abandon her home for other places for months on end just to get mold remediation has to be very hard. But… but I am just going to say it. An 11 year old that thinks ‘Banned’ is spelled ‘Band’ has been seriously failed along the way by whatever educational method is going on there.

We’re not even going to go into the sick ideas that make bragging that her father cannot go to certain countries in the world a thing. Those poor kids.

On the other Anderson front Zsu has also announced that 17 year old son Solomon is getting married next year.

Congrats. I guess.

Why am I bringing up all of these things? Because the Anderson’s recent posts, on both social media and on their blogs are illustrative of the big failures of Quiverfull, the realities that are glossed over, undereducated children, undereducated children getting married young without the skill set it takes to have a successful life.

I don’t know if you’ve followed the drama at Zsuzsanna’s blog about the mold situation in their home, but this is another common principle I’ve seen over the years in too many homes in this sub culture, ignore a problem with the home until it becomes an obvious crisis, which ends up creating major chaos, costs much more money and upends everyone’s lives. Don’t do maintenance, don’t look for the source of a leak until it turns the entire ceiling black, making the home uninhabitable.

Most of these things boil down to a lack of money in the household mixed with a strange ignorance that is cultivated in the more fundamentalist religions. So unnecessary, it sets up children for failure and more of the same chaos in the lives of the parents. Sad.

Quiverfull: Inside the Christian Patriarchy Movement by Kathryn Joyce

13:24 A Dark Thriller by M Dolon Hickmon

 

September 5, 2018

Screencap from the Faithful Word Baptist Church video of Steven Anderson dressed as a mock Catholic bishop about to use a toilet brush to sprinkle his followers with holy water to keep them safe from vampires and zombies.

Shared this a few days ago on Facebook but my blood is still boiling. Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist did something beyond what polite society demands yet again. I know, not surprising considering Anderson has called for the wholesale execution of LGBT people, praised the Pulse nightclub shooter, denigrated a fellow pastor for loving skinny jeans and polka dots, and loves to out other pastors for things they did as teens. This time Anderson didn’t just bash another Christian faith, he mocked it in one of the most disgraceful displays seen in ages.

It’s on a Facebook video that I cannot imbed here, but you can reach it via this link. Take a look and tell me what you think.

Here’s the entire sermon with Steven telling a number of lies, including that the Catholic Church invented the words ‘Hocus Pocus’ It’s not clear that this is the origin, at least not as clear as Steven seems to think it is. Likely it is a jugglar’s bastardization of Latin, not something the priests came up with.

Is this even remotely right to deliberately mock other Quiverfull religions from the pulpit or is this another example of Anderson’s hate speech? The video popped up on a Facebook page named “The Blood of the Patriots” that primarily features Anderson’s screeds he calls sermons. His wife Zsuzsanna loaded the videos into the page so it’s likely this is another page created by the Andersons to dissiminate their hate speech using the Bible as justification.

After spending some time this summer in the company of nuns and Catholics helping with the Nicaraguan crisis I can say that while I’m not in love with Catholism one thing that the church does do well is help the suffering. Does Anderson’s church do anything to eliminate poverty, help the poor, help those fleeing a repressive regime, or anything practical that helps others? No, they just go out ‘soul-winning’ – haranging strangers on their own front steps to come to Hate Speech Jesus.

Can’t you just feel the love of Christ oozing off Anderson *insert eyeroll here* This is not how mature people handle disagreements over theology.

13:24 A Dark Thriller by M Dolon Hickmon

January 6, 2018

jackasses

This is a cobbling together of three recent posts from Faithful Word Baptist Church’s pastor Steven Anderson. He’s been on a roll lately, posting a couple of times a week for the last month or so after months of silence. Sometimes Steven’s posting on his blog reminds one of a bipolar, nothing for a very long time, sheer silence and then a month or two of manic rambling. One has to wonder what happens during those periods of silence.

Looking at Anderson because I felt like we needed a break from the constant stay home and use your uterus as a flesh cannon to out populate brown people drum beat that most of the female cultural enforcers keep repeating.

Recently Steven said if your church is not going out soul-winning, or as I like to call it ‘door to door pestering’ many times per week then your church is not Christian, it’s just a social club. Apparently he is now in some feud with another Baptist church over communion and proselytizing.

Steven4

Why is there this tendency to quibble with other churches over small stuff, like how you handle communion? It seems that the more cult-like a church is then the most exclusionary they become, saying that everyone else is much less righteous than they are. These pastoral peeing contests aren’t going to make anyone want to go to your church, driving away those on the fence about faith and showing members just how spiritually abusive and unsafe your church is.

This next one makes me laugh. Anderson says that the entire home church movement is a big no-no, even though home church is exactly how Faithful Word Baptist Church started.  He admits it, but still insists it’s a sin.

Steven5

So his dislike of home churches boils down to there’s not one controlling cult leader like himself?

The only experiences with home churches I’ve had were mostly positive, and the members.  seemed to fit mostly in two groups in my observation. The first kind were all people who’d been spiritually abused in traditional churches who wanted a safer environment to practice their faith. The second type had quarreled with a pastor or a religion and thought that they could do it better. Some home churches are safer than organized religion, unfortunately it is sometimes harder to sort the toxic from the harmless at first glance.

The last bit just make me laugh out loud the first time I read it because it’s Anderson expounding on what cults he thinks Mormonism and Jehovah’s Witnesses are. He does not seem to realize that many of the markers of a cult he’s using also apply to his own church Faithful Word Baptist Church.

Steven6

Steven7

Gee, I wonder if Anderson explains his views on gays and the other more disgusting theology he holds immediately to the newcomers? How is he any different than a cult leader?

He’s included Fraternities on that list. Fraternities are a lot of different things, sometimes very bad, but clearly not a cult religion. Sounds like Steven might have been reading this book – Confessions of an Ivy League Frat Boy: A Memoir

13:24 – A Story of Faith and Obsession by M Dolon Hickmon

December 20, 2017

jackassesOver the last month many other online sites, blogs and media sites have drug up Faithful Word Baptist Church Pastor Steven Anderson’s words from three years ago and have tried to mislead folks into thinking this is a new thing. Trust me, it is not. We covered that kill the gays sermon here when he said it. It is here, here, here, and here.

He’s not said much new about killing the gay community beyond his capering and joy over the Pulse Nightclub shooting. In fact, he’s denying he called for the deaths of the gay community, because, get this, he thinks the federal government should be the one executing those that do not conform to his strict ideas about gender norms. Watching him complain is almost comical. I’m reminded of some of the Charlottesville tiki torch bearers who were outed on social media and fired from their jobs because of their hateful views. Racists love to hate but hate it when they are found out.

Anderson is claiming his stance on the death of the gay community is based on Biblical standards and he’s just calling on the United States government to commit to Biblical standards. Using that same lame excuse he has also said in the past that all adulterers should be put to death as well. What must it be like living in that tiny little closet railing against a society that is not governed by a book from the Bronze age?

Government, churches, individuals doing the executions is one hateful thought or demand. I wonder what Jesus would think of calling for the deaths of others? Steven is still stuck in the Old Testament it looks like.
