GAYS are pedophiles who should be exterminated for an AIDS-free Christmas, an anti-Semitic, Obama-hating pastor told followers on World AIDS Day.
Steven Anderson, the foot-stomping, bible-thumping pastor of Arizona’s small Faithful Word Baptist Church, says the bible states that LGBT people deserve to die for “committing an abomination.”
“Turn to Leviticus 20:13 because I actually discovered the cure for AIDS,” the married father-of-eight said in a December 1 YouTube video called ‘AIDS: the Judgement of God’.
“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them. And that, my friend, is the cure for AIDS.
“It was right there in the Bible all along — and they’re out spending billions of dollars in research and testing. It’s curable — right there. Because if you executed the homos like God recommends, you wouldn’t have all this AIDS running rampant.”
The fundamentalist also reminded parishioners during his troubling Sunday sermon that gays are banned from his church. About 50 people turned out to hear his rant.
Anderson has caused controversy in the past for sermons demonising Jewish people and women’s involvement in church services, and calling for “socialist devil” President Barack Obama’s death.
His wife, stay-at-home mum Zsuzsanna Anderson, writes a blog about being involved in “the greatest church in the world”.
