This is the nineteenth installment in The Sounds of Fundamentalism series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section.  Let’s have some fun!

Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a clip from a sermon preached by Independent Fundamentalist Baptist Steven Anderson, pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona.

    You know, I have sometimes wondered if the Bible doesn’t have some built-in mechanism, some vroom-vroom that actually shreds the brains of people who spend too much time reading it. While it surely serves as aviation fuel in some damaged fliers, Pastor Anderson is truly one addled space cadet. He actually sounds and reminds me of this other fellow:

      Yeah, this nutter is in a special class. Anderson has no theological training, a fact he is quite proud of. Literalism + Fundamentalism + ignorance = Steven Anderson.

    OMG…the incredible combination of ignorance, arrogance, and self-righteousness. It’s enough to make me want to start peeing sitting down. In fact, I think I need to start doing that. A lot of the time I really am pissing against the wall – as well as the floor, the toilet brush, the plunger, the dog, and anything else handy. The commode is a goal, a target maybe, but nothing more and I’ve never gotten any prizes for hitting it. I think it was comedienne Rita Rutner who said when men pee they are happy when they hit anything. I actually am pretty happy with my urination life, but I may need to start taking mercy on my wife, who somehow seems to care about such things. So much for being a real man. One more thing, out the fuckin’ window…(hey, maybe that’s an idea!)

    Astonishing. This idiot should be grateful he lives in a moderately free country, where he is permitted to preach this nonsense.

    The true irony is that he’s no doubt an out and out far right winger in a political sense, and in that area would stand and argue in favour of small government, one that doesn’t interfere with individual freedoms (as he sees them). Then he shows his true colours with this sort of silliness; he’s already said what how he believes todgers should be controlled when used as sexual appendages, and now he wants to control their other use.

    I’m almost tempted to sit down in future purely in protest.

    Preacher Anderson has a bee in his bonnet concerning homosexuals. He hates them with the love-rage of God’s Word and wants them to be executed. But I have one concern about his hatred. I have this nagging feeling that Anderson just needs a good hairdo to make him feel better. Look at him in this do for his very first sermon…. Wow! That young fellow actually has style! If his ministry had been at the hair-dresser instead of the pulpit, the world would be an easier place to look at! What do you think? I wonder if his early exposure to fundamentalism warped him off his natural path…. If you listen to the boy’s first sermon, it is evident that he is floundering and needs the excuse of the Bible to believe. He keeps dragging his audience through scriptures to show how the Bible is the Authority and not him…. Isn’t it odd that he has to piss standing up for Jesus and yet allows women to attend his church with no headgear? Jus’ askin’, Steve… no offense and I really really liked your hair when you were seventeen. Now, I am afraid you are wasting your talents with the army cut! Let go a little, Steve…. get out the peroxide! I think Jesus would have dyed his hair, don’t you?

      Oh man, that coif and those frosted tips make it even further obvious how deep in the closet this guy is.

      I remember reading a 2011 article where Anderson attacked Justin Bieber, calling him a “queer little sissy” and he still mentions Justin to this day (now, I don’t know why he is so obsessed with a young boy like JB, but his obsession sure is creepy), it’s really ironic, because Justin had that exact same haircut for a short while last year.

    Not just Anderson, but most if not all the other NIFB preachers seem to share his opinion on gays in that they believe gays and lesbians cannot become Christians.
