Pastor Steven Anderson is punished by PayPal and other businesses after praising the Orlando massacre.
An angry Pastor Anderson went on a blistering rant recently after PayPal, Apple, and other businesses began to shut down his business accounts and derailing his attempts at fundraising.
In a hate filled sermon Pastor Anderson complained that LGBT people and their allies were trying to shut him and pastors like him down, ranting:
It’s war! You know what the filthy sodomites have done toward our church and us, and our friends and our fellow pastors that actually have the guts to say what needs to be said? Here’s what they’ve done in the last few weeks. They got our PayPal account shut down so that we can’t take anymore online donations. We set up with another company, GivLet, they got that shut down. Qgiv, they got that shut down. BitPay, they got that shut down. They shut down our iTunes podcast. They shut down Brother Jimenez’s PayPal account. They shut down Brother Romero’s PayPal account… The landlord of Pastor Jimenez is saying, ‘hey we’re not going to renew your lease.’
Pastor Anderson was referencing Pastor Roger Jimenez, a California pastor who made headlines and earned widespread condemnation when he cheered the actions of the Orlando shooter for attacking LGBT people.
Pastor Jimenez sparked an outcry after delivering a passionate sermon celebrating the brutal massacre at a gay nightclub in Florida earlier this month. Standing in his pulpit the pastor told his congregation that Christians “shouldn’t be mourning the death of 50 sodomites.”
At the time a passionate Pastor Jimenez declared:
The tragedy is that more of them didn’t die. The tragedy is — I’m kind of upset that he didn’t finish the job!
Pastor Anderson was also defending Texas Pastor Donnie Romero, who recently prayed for God to “finish the job” and kill the survivors of the Orlando massacre.Pastor Anderson continued:
I mean these people are dedicated. These people are researching, they’re finding out where we bank, they’re finding out who we do business with. They’re trying to get us shut down on all fronts, and you know what, let me tell you something, I’m sick of it.
In his hate filled sermon, Pastor Anderson attacked LGBT people and their allies, declaring:
I don’t want to hang around with a bunch of fag hags, and a bunch of queer-bates, and a bunch of effeminates. GET OUT!
Look: No one, in a million years, would have thought, when I was a child, that our country would ever accept this stuff amongst Christians. You are insane. You think I’m preaching too hard? You. Have. Lost. Your. Mind.
And if you ever say the word “LGBT community” to me, you might as well just walk up to me and just say, ‘You know what? I’m a brainwashed idiot. I don’t read the Bible. I don’t love God. I’m just a brainwashed fool that has my mind filled with TV, Hollywood, and can’t think for myself.’
LGBT. They’re sodomites. They’re dogs. That’s what the Bible calls them: Dogs. DOGS!
Pastor Anderson, Pastor Jimenez, and Pastor Romero all lead “Independent Fundamental Baptist” churches that use only the King James version of the Bible. They all lead virulently anti-gay congregations, and often call on the government to establish a Biblically mandated death penalty for LGBT people.
