The Netherlands has banned Arizona Pastor Steven Anderson from entering the country as part of a speaking tour scheduled for later this month.

Newsweek reports:

The Netherlands has banned​ anti-Semitic and anti-LGBT preacher Steven Anderson from entering the country as part of a speaking tour this month.  

The founder of the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Arizona was due to appear in the Netherlands on May 23 as part of the European stint of a tour that also includes Ireland and Sweden, according to the organization.

The Netherlands Times reports:

American preacher Steven Anderson will not be allowed into the Netherlands and the rest of the Schengen area, State Secretary Mark Harbers of Justice and Security said on Wednesday in response to parliamentary questions.

According to Harbers, the government is “taking strong action against extremist speakers who, by spreading their beliefs, restrict the freedoms of others or even incite hatred or violence”…

The ban comes after an effort was made by LGBT activists and other reasonable people in the Netherlands rallied to inform citizens about the vile and ugly nature of Anderson’s conservative Christian rhetoric.

Commenting on the ban, parliamentarian Vera Bergkamp declared:

Today love has won over hatred

For those unfamiliar with Pastor Anderson, he is an obnoxious Christian extremist with a history of preaching a hateful and extreme Christian fundamentalism. Previously the Arizona pastor has called for the public execution of gays and lesbians, and prayed for the death of Caitlyn Jenner.

Anderson, the founder of Arizona’s Faithful Word Baptist Church, an “Independent Fundamental Baptist” church that uses only the King James version of the Bible, leads a conservative, virulently anti-gay congregation, and has previously called on the government to establish a Biblically mandated death penalty for LGBT people.

In the past the controversial pastor has used the Bible to explain why women should not have the right to vote, the right to work outside the home, or the right to seek a divorce.

In addition, Anderson has defended the institution of slavery “because the Bible’s always right.”

In short, Pastor Anderson is a dangerous Christian extremist who takes the Bible literally, even when doing so leads to morally reprehensible positions, such as defending the death penalty for gays.

Botswana arrested and deported Anderson in 2016 for hate speech, and last year Anderson was banned from Jamaica and was ejected from South Africa.

Bottom line: The Netherlands has banned Arizona Pastor Steven Anderson from entering the country as part of a  “soul-winning” speaking tour scheduled for later this month.

Botswana arrests and deports anti-gay U.S. Pastor who celebrated Orlando massacre.

Pastor Steven Anderson, a deplorable human being and promoter of Christian hate has been deported from Botswana after the country’s government declared him a prohibited immigrant. According to reports, the government of Botswana announced on Tuesday it had deported the anti-LGBT U.S. pastor from the country.

Botswana immigration officers detained Pastor Anderson following an interview with national radio station Gabz FM in the capital Gaborone. During the interview, Anderson stated that he thinks the government should be killing homosexuals and that people who commit adultery should be stoned to death.

After Anderson argued that homosexuals and adulterers should be “stoned to death” while appearing on the local radio station, Botswana President Ian Khama told the Reuters news agency that he had personally ordered his arrest, declaring:

We don’t want hate speech in this country. Let him do it in his own country.

Last week, South Africa barred Pastor Anderson from visiting because of his critical remarks about homosexuality.

In fact, Pastor Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church in Arizona has a long history of promoting bigotry and hatred in the name of his toxic brand of Christianity.

After the Orlando massacre last year Pastor Anderson criticized fellow Christians who showed sympathy for the victims of the tragedy, declaring:

We’re supposed to be sad because a bunch of perverts in a gay bar are killed?

In addition, the controversial pastor has defended slavery by claiming:

if the Bible condones slavery, then I condone slavery. Because the Bible’s always right about every subject…

Indeed, Pastor Anderson is an obnoxious Christian extremist with a history of preaching a hateful and extreme Christian fundamentalism. Previously the Arizona pastor called for the public execution of gays and lesbians, prayed for the death of Caitlyn Jenner, and used the Bible to explain why women should not have the right to vote, the right to work outside the home, or the right to seek a divorce.

Bottom line: Botswana made the right call – Pastor Anderson is a dangerous Christian extremist. The bad news – he’s coming back to the U.S.

Blame God For The Fires: Arizona Pastor Steven Anderson claims the catastrophic wildfires in Australia are being caused by God because Australia has been “banning and deporting preachers of the Gospel.”

Pastor Anderson, the founder of the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Arizona, gave God all the credit for the devastating fires destroying Australia earlier this week via Facebook. 

On his church’s Facebook page Anderson declares:

Maybe if Australia weren’t banning and deporting preachers of the Gospel, they wouldn’t be under the judgment of God 

Australia officially banned Pastor Anderson from entering the country last July, and for good reason. The man is a deplorable human being and a promoter of Christian hate. Known as the “death to gays” pastor, Anderson frequently calls for the execution of LGBT people.

For those unfamiliar with Pastor Anderson, he is an obnoxious Christian extremist with a history of preaching a hateful and extreme Christian fundamentalism. Previously the Arizona pastor has called for the public execution of gays and lesbians, and prayed for the death of Caitlyn Jenner.

Anderson, the founder of Arizona’s Faithful Word Baptist Church, an “Independent Fundamental Baptist” church that uses only the King James version of the Bible, leads a hyper-conservative, virulently anti-gay congregation, and has previously called on the government to establish a Biblically mandated death penalty for LGBT people.

In the past the controversial pastor has used the Bible to explain why women should not have the right to vote, the right to work outside the home, or the right to seek a divorce.

In addition, Anderson has defended the institution of slavery “because the Bible’s always right.”

In short, Pastor Anderson is a dangerous Christian extremist who takes the Bible literally, even when doing so leads to morally reprehensible positions, such as defending the death penalty for gays.

In addition to being banned by Australia last July, Botswana arrested and deported Anderson in 2016 for hate speech; in 2018 Anderson was banned from Jamaica and was ejected from South Africa, and last year the “good Christian man” was banned from the Netherlands.

Bottom line: Arizona Pastor Steven Anderson claims the catastrophic wildfires in Australia are being caused by God because Australia has been “banning and deporting preachers of the Gospel.”

More of that Christian love: This weekend ultra-conservative Baptists will be hosting a “Make America Straight Again” conference calling for the public execution of LGBT people.

The conference is being held to coincide with the anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting that left dozens dead and many more injured.

New NIFB Cult reports:

Several congregations from the New Independent Fundementalist Baptist Church (the NIFB) will host their “Make America Straight Again” conference at the location and on the anniversary of the PULSE Nightclub shooting.

Out reports:

A group of far-right conservative pastors from churches around Central Florida are organizing a conference they’re calling Make America Straight Again, coinciding both with LGBTQ+ Pride month, as well as the same week as the three-year anniversary of the brutal mass shooting at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando.

The Advocate reports:

Ministers who cheer the execution of gays will rally in a community where LGBTQ people were massacred three years ago.

Pastor Patrick Boyle of Revival Baptist Church, one of the churches hosting the “Make America Straight Again” conference in Central Florida this weekend, explained that the conference will feature ministers who have already been known to “make a vocal stance against sodomites and their filth that they have been spreading to the homes and families across the world and the United States of America.”

Noting that the conference is timed to Gay Pride Week in Orlando, Pastor Boyle declared:

They will be out and proud of who they are and daring someone to say something, and we’re going to go ahead and take them up on it. This conference is going to be explaining our view, or rather God’s view, on it.

Condemning gays as sodomites, Pastor Boyle declared:

They are beyond reach, the Sodomites. We are not trying to reach them. We are trying to warn society that if we embrace that, you are going to lose your children … The schools are telling them it’s an alternative lifestyle choice.

In yet another video promoting the “Make America Straight Again” conference Pastor Boyle makes clear his theological position concerning gays, declaring:

The Bible says they (gay people) are worthy of death.

The conference speakers include well known Christian-hate monger Pastor Steven Anderson, who celebrated the Orlando nightclub shooting by calling it “good news” and claiming that “homosexuals are a bunch of disgusting perverts.”

Previously the Arizona pastor has called for the public execution of gays and lesbians, and prayed for the death of Caitlyn Jenner.

Reporting on the conference, New NIFB Cult notes:

The NIFB (New Independent Fundementalist Baptist Church) are vocal proponents for not only bigotry against and marginalization of the LGBTQ+ community, but also for government-enacted capital punishment of its members.

For this reason they have chosen to hold their conference in Orlando during Pride month on the Anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub shooting to not only publicly celebrate the anniversary of the tragic deaths of the 49 people who lost their lives that weekend, but to advocate for more. (The NIFB’s own promotional video for this conference can be found here.)

This specific religious sect are vocal regarding their ownership of weapons and ammunition, as well as their proficiency in their usage. They also reference their familiarity with both conceal-and-carry and stand-your-ground legislation in the state of Florida, raising serious concerns that there may be violent escalations during their planned public activities surrounding the PULSE anniversary.

Bottom line: This weekend ultra-conservative Baptists will celebrate the Pulse nightclub shooting at the ‘Make America Straight Again’ conference while calling for the public execution of LGBT people.

Prominent Baptist Pastor Keith Gomez argues slavery was a good thing because it helped Africans escape Africa and come to America.

Pastor Keith Gomez, who leads the Northwest Bible Baptist Church in Elgin, Illinois, wants everyone to know that slavery was not really a bad thing, and that it actually helped African Americans escape Africa.

In a recent sermon Gomez argued slavery was a good thing, because: “If it wasn’t for slavery, those folks would still be in Africa with a bone in their nose…”

The following is an excerpt from Pastor Gomez’s racist remarks on slavery:

… we’re talking about 13 books in the Bible, Romans through Philemon. You ought to write that down. I could really shake you up now, but I don’t know if I oughta wake you up that bad… when you get in the Pauline — are y’all listening to me? — when you get into the Pauline epistles, you’re getting in the doctrine. So why would you get in Philemon when he’s trying to teach you how to treat your slave?… If they should be slaves.

[Makes a fake snoring sound] So you wanna go to sleep?

See, what you wanna do is turn in to TBN [Trinity Broadcasting Network] and listen to them odd birds who don’t know doctrine whatsoever. And then you hate slavery because we were taught to hate that. Because we’re so nasty.

And some of you little whities can’t get it either. If it wasn’t for slavery, those folks would still be in Africa with a bone in their nose fighting lions, and if you don’t like that, you can lump it any way you want. That ain’t a prejudice. That is factual and historical.

Pastor Gomez is wrong on too many levels too count. The overt and unapologetic racism is only the start of this sorry man’s ethical and metaphysical confusion.

The phrase “some of you little whities can’t get it either” is simply beautiful in its profound absurdity.

In fact, the whole rant is a malicious and dangerous slander that is popular with many fundamentalist Baptists. For example, Pastor Steven Anderson gave a similar sermon last year in which he defended slavery “because the Bible’s always right.”

In a twisted sermon uploaded to YouTube, Pastor Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church defended the institution of slavery as presented in the Bible “because the Bible’s always right about every subject.”

At the time, the passionate Baptist pastor explained to his gullible congregation why his Christian faith demands that he accept the righteousness of slavery as presented in the Bible:

People will try to come at us — usually atheists or people like that — they’ll come at us and say, “Well, the Bible is wrong because the Bible condones slavery.” We’ve all heard that before, right?

But here’s the thing about that, is that if the Bible condones slavery, then I condone slavery. Because the Bible’s always right about every subject…

Both Pastor Anderson and Pastor Gomez illustrate an insoluble moral dilemma when it comes to Christianity. The Bible, both Old Testament and New Testament, operate under the faulty moral assumption that slavery is OK. Thus, when you accept the Bible as the Word of God, you are stuck defending slavery.

Many moderate Christians are dishonest, and simply ignore or reinterpret the explicit, pro-slavery messages central to Christianity. Others, like Gomez and Anderson, are at least honest in recognizing that slavery is Biblical, and thus approved by God.

However, by defending slavery, fundamentalists reveal that both they and their God are unethical, moral monsters. Meanwhile, the cowardly moderates quietly look the other way and ignore the Bible, while claiming that the fundamentalists aren’t “true Christians.”

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.

Pastor prays for God to “finish the job” and kill the survivors of the Orlando massacre.

Pastor Donnie Romero of Stedfast Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas, says he is happy about the mass shooting earlier this month that left 49 dead and scores more wounded at a gay nightclub in Florida.

Pastor Romero told his flock he agrees “100 percent” with Baptist Pastor Roger Jimenez, who made news with his sermon advocating that the government should use a firing squad to “blow their brains out.”

Previously Pastor Jimenez said:

You know the tragedy is that more of them didn’t die. I mean the tragedy is — I’m kind of upset he didn’t finish the job.

Agreeing with Pastor Jimenez, Pastor Romero said:

I agree 100% with Pastor Roger Jimenez. These 50 sodomites are all perverts and pedophiles, and they are the scum of the earth, and the earth is a little bit better place now.

And I’ll take it a step further, because I heard on the news today, that there are still several dozen of these queers in ICU and intensive care. And I will pray to God like I did this morning, and I will do it tonight, I’ll pray that God will finish the job that that man started, and he will end their life, and by tomorrow morning they will all be burning in hell, just like the rest of them, so that they don’t get any more opportunity to go out and hurt little children.

In his sermon, Pastor Romero went on to criticize Christian mega-churches, claiming they are unwilling to preach anti-gay messages, while referencing Sodom and Gomorrah, which he called the first ever “queer mass murder.”

Perhaps not so surprising, Pastor Romero was ordained by Pastor Steven Anderson, who also celebrated the Orlando massacre.

In a twisted sermon captured on video, Pastor Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church said that the mass shooting at the gay nightclub in Florida was “good news” because “homosexuals are a bunch of disgusting perverts.”

“We’re supposed to be sad because a bunch of perverts in a gay bar are killed?” – Pastor Steven Anderson.

Pastor Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church releases a new video criticizing fellow Christians who show sympathy for the victims of the Orlando massacre.  

In his vile video message Pastor Anderson tells his followers that Christians should not feel or show sympathy for the gay victims of the Orlando massacre. Instead, he encourages his fellow Christians to keep “a biblical view of the sodomites”:

… it seems that so many Christians today are sympathizing with the sodomites who were destroyed in this nightclub shooting, in this terror attack. Why would we sympathize with, or feel bad for, or “oh, I feel so sad for the victims and their families”?…

Let’s not leave our heart in San Francisco. Let’s make sure that, you know, we have a biblical view of the sodomites, and a biblical view of the world that we live in, and not to just get brainwashed by the media where they tell us how to feel and they tell us how to think, and that we’re supposed to be sad because a bunch of perverts in a gay bar are killed.

… we’re supposed to sympathize with that. Well, frankly, I’m not sad about it at all. I don’t condone violence, I never have… but I’m not gonna sit here and cry about it and say it’s a tragedy, because it’s not…

In an earlier video Pastor Anderson argued that the mass shooting that left at least 50 dead and scores more wounded at a gay nightclub in Florida was “good news” because “homosexuals are a bunch of disgusting perverts.”

For those unfamiliar with Pastor Anderson, he is an obnoxious Christian extremist with a history of preaching a hateful and extreme Christian fundamentalism. Previously the Arizona pastor has called for the public execution of gays and lesbians, and more recently prayed for the death of Caitlyn Jenner.

In short, Pastor Anderson is a dangerous Christian extremist who takes the Bible literally, even when doing so leads to morally reprehensible positions, such as defending the death penalty for gays.

Many moderate Christians may object to Pastor Anderson’s vile rhetoric, yet Pastor Anderson does maintain “a biblical view of the sodomites,” and many conservative Christians share his view, even if they are unwilling to share that view in a public forum.

While some progressive Christians may try to sanitize the Bible, the fact remains that the “Good Book” is really not so good at all.

And it should come as a surprise to no one that Christian fundamentalists and GOP politicians use Bible based religious superstitions to create a climate of bigotry and hatred that continues to threaten and harass the LGBT community.

Claiming “homosexuals are a bunch of disgusting perverts,” Pastor Steven Anderson celebrates the Orlando nightclub shooting.

In a twisted video recently uploaded to YouTube, Pastor Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church argues that the mass shooting that left at least 50 dead and scores more wounded at a gay nightclub in Florida is “good news” because “homosexuals are a bunch of disgusting perverts.”

In his hateful rant Pastor Anderson says he is “not sad,” and says he is “not gonna cry” about the horrific massacre, because the victims were just “disgusting homosexuals at a gay bar.”

The following is an excerpt from his hateful rant:

The good news is that there’s 50 less pedophiles in this world, because, you know, these homosexuals are a bunch of disgusting perverts and pedophiles. That’s who was a victim here, are a bunch of, just, disgusting homosexuals at a gay bar, okay?

But the bad news is that this is now gonna be used, I’m sure, to push for gun control, where, you know, law-abiding normal Americans are not gonna be allowed to have guns for self-defense. And then I’m sure it’s also gonna be used to push an agenda against so-called “hate speech.” So Bible-believing Christian preachers who preach what the Bible actually says about homosexuality — that it’s vile, that it’s disgusting, that they’re reprobates — you know, we’re gonna be blamed.Like, “It’s all extremism! It’s not just the Muslims, it’s the Christians!” I’m sure that that’s coming. I’m sure that people are gonna start attacking, you know, Bible-believing Christians now, because of what this guy did.

Now let me just be real clear: I’ve never advocated for violence. I don’t believe in, you know, taking the law into our own hands. I would never go in and shoot up a gay bar — so-called. I don’t believe it’s right for us to just be a vigilante… But I will say this: The Bible says that homosexuals should be put to death, in Leviticus 20:13. Obviously, it’s not right for somebody to just, you know, shoot up the place, because that’s not going through the proper channels. But these people all should have been killed, anyway, but they should have been killed through the proper channels, as in they should have been executed by a righteous government that would have tried them, convicted them, and saw them executed. Because, in Leviticus 20:13, God’s perfect law, he put the death penalty on murder, and he also put the death penalty on homosexuality. That’s what the Bible says, plain and simple.

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…

For those unfamiliar with Pastor Anderson, he is an obnoxious Christian extremist with a history of preaching a hateful and extreme Christian fundamentalism. Previously the Arizona pastor has called for the public execution of gays and lesbians, and more recently prayed for the death of Caitlyn Jenner.

In addition, the controversial pastor has used the Bible to explain why women should not have the right to vote, the right to work outside the home, or the right to seek a divorce.

Bottom line: Pastor Anderson is a dangerous Christian extremist who takes the Bible literally, even when doing so leads to morally reprehensible positions, such as defending slavery, or defending the death penalty for gays.

Pastor Steven Anderson explains why the “effeminate” and “sissy” Prince is now in Hell.

In a twisted sermon recently uploaded to YouTube, Pastor Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church explained to his flock that while Prince is being punished for being  “a fornicator” and “for being a cross-dresser and a weirdo and wicked…” the real reason the musical genius is in Hell is because he was a Jehovah’s Witness.

In his hate-filled sermon Pastor Anderson declared:

Prince was indoctrinated into the cult known as Jehovah’s Witnesses. The Watchtower cult. And that is why Prince is in Hell today.

Prince is not in Hell today because he was effeminate, a sissy. He’s not in Hell today just because he’s a fornicator. The real reason he ended up in Hell is because he never put his faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, and now he is being punished for being a fornicator. He is being punished for being a cross-dresser and a weirdo and wicked…

… You have to be delusional to be a Jehovah’s Witness. It’s really a ridiculous religion…

“It’s really a ridiculous religion,” says the man advocating for a ridiculous religion.

Pastor Anderson is a controversial figure known for representing the most extreme and obnoxious viewpoints of contemporary conservative Christians.  

Previously Pastor Anderson defended the institution of slavery as presented in the Bible “because the Bible’s always right about every subject;” and used the Bible to explain why women should not have the right to vote, the right to work outside the home, or the right to seek a divorce.

In addition, the Arizona pastor has called for the public execution of gays and lesbians, and more recently prayed for the death of Caitlyn Jenner.

Bottom line: Pastor Anderson is an obnoxious Christian extremist with a history of preaching a hateful and extreme Christian fundamentalism, his claim that Prince is in Hell is just another expression of that Christian hate.
