Anti-gay preacher barred from fundraising now wants death penalty for adultery

Published

on

When someone says that homosexuality is worthy of death according to the Bible, people inevitably will bring up other sins that were also punishable by death in the Old Testament. They think they are somehow catching us in hypocrisy, but the truth is, Bible believing Christians DO agree with those other Old Testament penalties as well.

So says the controversial Quiverfull pastor, Steven Anderson whose obnoxious, anti-LGBT sermons calling for the death penalty for gays have earned his church a well-deserved spot on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s list of hate groups.

Anderson, father of eight and leader of an Independent Fundamental Baptist church in Tempe, Arizona, received national attention recently when he celebrated the Orlando Massacre as “good news” because the victims were just “disgusting homosexuals at a gay bar.”

PayPal, Apple, and other businesses responded to Anderson’s hate-speech by attempting to prevent him from collecting donations via his YouTube account.

Others simply tried to reason with Steve by pointing out that the bible contains quite a list of “sins” other than homosexuality which were also punishable by death, including adultery.

In response, Anderson unapologetically says, Yes! Let’s kill adulterers too!

“Today, adultery is not punishable by law in the United States, but it should be.”

Of course there are rules, the King James-quoting pastor explains … adulterers must be tried and convicted before they’re put to death, and if America were to implement the Old Testament law, it wouldn’t be retroactive, so if you’ve already cheated, you’re safe so long as you don’t do it again.

Think about it, though. Do you really think as many people commit adultery in societies where it is punishable by death? Of course not … so you can relax about your Aunt Trudy who cheated on her husband thirty years ago. If Aunt Trudy had lived in a society that enforced the death penalty for adultery, chances are she would never have committed that sin in the first place.

See there? Steve can be reasonable. snark

Suzanne Titkemeyer, administrator of the spiritual abuse recovery blog, No Longer Quivering, monitors Pastor Anderson’s broadcasts and sermons regularly in order to feature his most cringe-worthy railings against homosexuals, feminists, abortion, birth control, Jews, Muslims, … pretty much everyone and everything that doesn’t line up with his literalist interpretation of scripture.

Concerning Anderson’s latest call for capital punishment for adulterers, Suzanne wrote, “If every cheating jerk in America got executed for infidelity then most of our politicians and pastors would be dead.”

Truthfully, with all the scandals in Quiverfull families coming to light in recent years … Josh Duggar, Bill Gothard, Doug Phillips … I have a hunch that one of these days Pastor Steve Anderson’s secret sins will be exposed too.

Vyckie Garrison was once a minor celebrity in the Quiverfull Movement, made famous by TV’s Duggar family. As a devout, Bible-believing Christian and the mother of seven homeschooled children, Garrison spent 16 years, with her husband, publishing a newspaper for families on a similar path. Today, via a website called No Longer Quivering, she publishes resources for women leaving the movement.

READ IT: More than 1,100 former US Department of Justice officials tell Bill Barr to resign now

Published

on

More than 1,100 former US Department of Justice officials called on Attorney General William P. Barr on Sunday to step down after he intervened last week to lower the Justice Department’s sentencing recommendation for President Trump’s longtime friend and political crony Roger J. Stone Jr.

“It is unheard of for the Department’s top leaders to overrule line prosecutors, who are following established policies, in order to give preferential treatment to a close associate of the President, as Attorney General Barr did in the Stone case,” wrote the former Justice Department attorneys in their Sunday letter. “It is even more outrageous for the Attorney General to intervene as he did here — after the President publicly condemned the sentencing recommendation that line prosecutors had already filed in court.”

Air Force One in flight.

Another oops moment happened for President Donald Trump's campaign manager stole George W. Bush's photo from the Daytona 500 in 2004.

Tweeting Sunday, Brad Parscale proclaimed, "[email protected] won the #Daytona500 before the race even started."

Except, it wasn't him. As many people pointed out, the image was from 16 years ago by photographer Jonathan Ferrey, CNN reported. Parscale was forced to delete it and tweet it out again with an underwhelming photo.

‘America — y’all gotta wake up’: MSNBC panel cracks up laughing at Trump bizarre claims about the border wall

Published

on

Last month, President Donald Trump's border wall collapsed due to weather problems. A new decision was made that in certain areas, Trump's wall must be a kind of "gate" that will remain open during months known for heavy flooding.

After weeks of ignoring the news, Trump finally found something to say about the catastrophe during a press conference where he rambled about different ways that people have tried to get drugs over the wall using a sling-shot.
