Last night, Alan Colmes interviewed Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church who has recently achieved fame for his sermons preaching that gays are out to rape children in order to recruit them and declaring that the only way to stop them is to kill them.
Anderson did not back down:
Colmes: Everybody who is gay is a predator?
Anderson: Well, if you disagree with that, that’s fine. But every gay person in the Bible was a predator, from Genesis to Revelation.
Colmes: Well, I don’t know about the Bible, but do you believe that every gay person in the world is a predator?
Anderson: That’s what I believe, yes. And every gay person that I’ve ever known personally has been a predator …
Colmes: Define “predator.” What do you mean by “predator”?
Anderson: A predator as in someone who tries to molest other people, to force people into things that they don’t want to do …
Colmes: So, let me get this straight, every homosexual in the world forces other people to do be gay?
Anderson: I believe that every homosexual in the world is a deviant, is evil, and is a predator that is out to recruit others through molestation, through rape. It’s in the news.
After some discussion whether someone like Rep. Barney Frank was a “predator” and “molester” the conversation turned toward Anderson insistence that every gay person he has ever known has been a predator and molester and that being gay is a choice they have made. When Colmes asked Anderson when he chose to be straight, Anderson replied that nobody chooses to be straight because everyone is “born normal” and that it is “only people who go against nature and become more and more sick” and get into “weird, sick, deviant things” like homosexuality or bestiality which, in Anderson’s views, are all the same thing.
Oh, and he also believes that those who commit adultery should be stoned to death.
In the second segment, Anderson defends his prayers for the death of President Barack Obama while repeatedly insisting that he would be in no way responsible if one of his followers went out and tried to kill him:
