Quote# 105191

In an interview with Phoenix TV station KPNX anchor Mark Curtis, Anderson acknowledged that he hates gay people and would reject his child if he or she turned out to be gay.

“You hate gay people …,” Curtis started.

“Yes,” Anderson replied.

“... I'm Jewish. How do you feel about Jews?”

“Oh, I don't hate Jews. I mean, that's just a straw man to try to compare me to [Adolf] Hitler. I don't hate Jews whatsoever.”

Anderson made a second reference to Hitler when asked how he would feel if his son or daughter turned out to be gay.

“Well, that's just a fallacy that it just turns out that certain people are gay. That's just a lie, because it's not random. It's not something that's just gonna accidentally happen to one of my children,” Anderson said, explaining that people become gay when they reject God.

“It's not going to happen,” he insisted. “If it did, I'd have nothing to do with them. That's like saying, what if your daughter, you know, grew up to be an ax murderer? What if your son grew up to be like Adolf Hitler? I mean, it's just a silly question.”

When Curtis noted the comparisons between Anderson and Hitler, the pastor rejected the suggestion.

“Absolutely not. I'm preaching the Bible, something Adolf Hitler rejected,” he said.

Meanwhile, a crowdfunding campaign to send Anderson lumps of coal on Christmas Eve has nearly doubled its initial $10,000 goal.

He's a little weak in history, but a credit to his religion nonetheless.

Eh, too easy.

This is the one who thinks people with AIDS should be executed. This man has 8 children, all home-schooled by his wife, who also treats their illnesses with "essential oils." Unless the illness is AIDS, I guess, in which case the child will be treated with thrown stones.

I recommend sending him dogshit instead of coal. It's better for the environment and sends a clearer message.

Adolf Hitler never rejected the bible. Nor preaching it.

He used the bible as a reference tool.

Until it does. I think Mr. Anderson would be very surprised.

people become gay when they reject God.

Interesting that I became an atheist about 14 years ago, but I'm still as into women now as I was when I was a horny Catholic teenager.

Poor Christians. That guy really hurt your image, didn't he? I mean to this day you pretend to the very end that he wasn't one of you in spite of his own words on the matter and the wealth of Christian imagery and ceremony plastered all over the Nazi party.

You are more like Hitler than you think in the way you view homosexuals and think you are doing god's work. Gott mitt uns amirite?

No; environment helps. And having you as a father sounds like quite a fertile environment.

So, you're selective in your hatred. How nice.

Steven Anderson is deeper in the closet than Aunt Martha's wedding dress.

My faith in mankind is restored. Thanks guys, you are awesome.

The Crimson Ghost

The notion that people turn gay when rejecting gawd is one of the funniest things I've ever heard. I've been a nonbeliever for my entire life, & I still have a voracious appetite for the male of the species, whether it's just admiring all those beautiful men I see on my screen or Mr. Crimson Ghost.

I wonder if Mr. Anderson here is running for the title of "The Stupidest Man on Earth".

Well, that's just a fallacy that it just turns out that certain people are gay.

We found the brain structures years ago. It's random and set in the womb.

Absolutely not. I'm preaching the Bible, something Adolf Hitler rejected

That's a fundie myth and completely untrue. Hitler referred to the Bible and used it to justify his actions numerous times.

Hitler murdered thousands of gays. He might not have killed them at his own hands, but he did all the same.

@Bay of Fundie

He may or may not be in the closet; the "armored closet" gay is a stereotype. Now, if he was arguing that legalized gay marriage would create a mass exodus of men leaving their wives for other men, that would be different. But he's not arguing that.

Why not? It is a fair comparison




“Absolutely not. I'm preaching the Bible, something Adolf Hitler rejected,” he said.

Anderson said, explaining that people become gay when they reject God.

I've been rejecting "God" for 65 years and I'm not gay yet.
Not that I'm looking forward to it, just sayin'.
