Incitement to violence: Florida Pastor Adam Fannin calls on God to kill comedian Sarah Silverman because she is “a witch,” and “a Jezebel.”
Law and Crime reports:
Sarah Silverman on Thursday Tweeted a video clip of a Florida pastor delivering a vitriolic diatribe against the comedian to his congregation. In it, the pastor says he prays for her “untimely death” and adds that Silverman’s premature death would be the work of God. Silverman included a caption with the clip which read, “If I get murdered, start here,” and later wrote that the pastor “is going to get [her] killed.”
Silverman tweeted the following:
This is Adam Fannin of the Stedfast Baptist Church in Florida and he is going to get me killed.

Silverman should be alarmed. Fannin delivered a wildly anti-Semitic sermon in which he raged against the comedian for something she said in her comedy special “Jesus is Magic.”
In his sermon the raging baptist pastor declared:
These Jewish, false profits, anti-Christian, anti-God… They’re willing to put Jesus to death again! Have you heard of this comedian Sarah Silverman? You guys know what I’m talking about? She brags about it! ‘I’d do it again!’ Listen, she is a witch, she is a jezebel, she is a God-hating whore of Zionism. I hope that God breaks her teeth out and she dies. She is a wicked person and she is, like, the perfect representation of religious Judaism.
I pray that God would give her an untimely death, and it would be evident that it’s at the hand of God. It would be obvious that God would judge her. I pray for the day.

Concerning Pastor Fannin, Newsweek reports:
Adam Fannin, formerly of the literalist Stedfast Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida, is the preacher in the disturbing video.
He is now part of the Law of Liberty Baptist Church, also in Jacksonville, following a recent scandal involving Stedfast that saw its leader admit to using sex workers.
Bottom line: Florida Pastor Adam Fannin calls on God to kill comedian Sarah Silverman because she is “a witch,” and “a Jezebel.”
