Freak of the Week

I'm thinking of starting a new segment here on ONAF, highlighting people who are so insane and delusional that they belong in a circus. I do that a lot already - might as well make it a recurring piece, right? So with apologies to the Marvelous 3, here's your first Freak of the Week nominee:

Come on down, Steven Anderson of the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, AZ:
Anderson began his rampage against gays by saying, “The biggest hypocrite in the world is the person who believes in the death penalty for murderers and not for homosexuals.”

“The same God who instituted the death penalty for murderers is the same god who instituted the death penalty for rapists and for homosexuals, sodomites and queers.”

Anderson then goes on to paint gays as child molesters, including Congressman Barney Frank.

“The sodomites are recruiters and you know who they are after? Your children. They are being recruited by the sodomites. They are being molested by the sodomites. They recruit through rape, they recruit through molestation, they recruit through violation.”

“Our country is run by faggots. You know who was the man who was the architect of the bailout? His name is Barney Frank, he is a pedophile…”

“That’s who just sold our country into fascism. That’s who just sold our corporations to the government. That’s who sold out our country, a faggot!”

Read the whole thing - it's pretty special. He advocates, among other things, eating avocadoes and nuts to aid with Bible memorization. With the amount of avocadoes I eat, I should have the entire Bible memorized, plus the Talmud.

Pam Spaulding - bless her - tracked down a video which she posted on Pandagon, in which she notes that the camera never pans over to his congregation. I think it's because there's a guy with a goofy nose juggling. Also a lion tamer. And maybe, like, two congregants. The real comedy starts at about 5:00. Somebody needs to put "Yakety Sax" in the background here - that's really all this video needs.

It's been awhile since I've seen the Jack Chick disciples roaming around and making news. Always makes for great comedy.

Yakety Sax. Nice.
