This Arizona Pastor Wants To Cure AIDS By Exterminating All The ‘Homos’ (VIDEO)

Pastor Stephen J. Anderson is an equal opportunity hate-monger. This head honcho of Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona has led an interesting career. In 2009, Anderson received a visit from the Secret Service after he uploaded a video in which he prayed for President Obama’s death. He repeated this sentiment in 2014 during a long screed against the President, in which he set out to prove, armed with his trusty bible and “birther” conspiracy theories, that President Obama is a “bastard” by every definition of the word.

Pastor Anderson also hates women  — that is to say, he feels they have no purpose outside of the kitchen and bedroom. In March, Anderson used that Bible of his to show his congregation that not only should women abstain from speaking in church, they should not so much as say “amen” because it would mean their opinion is worth something. And if that woman is on birth control? Well, she’s a vile, green-blooded (yes, green-blooded), lazy, gossipy wh*re.

If that isn’t bad enough, Anderson is a teensy bit anti-Semitic as well. By “teensy,” we mean he has uploaded to his YouTube account a two-parter called “The Jews and Their Lies,” as well as a 55-part series called “Israel moments” in which he, in a good, “Christian” way, spends a considerable portion of his life explaining how horrible Jewish people are.

Anderson’s latest “facepalm moment” is contained in his newest hour-long, hate-filled spewfest: “AIDS: The Judgment of God.” In this despicable diatribe that can be loosely called a “sermon,” Anderson explains to us that AIDS and other STDs are God’s punishment for homosexuality and sexual immorality.

During his rant, the good pastor explains that he has found a FINAL SOLUTION to AIDS in the Bible: the mass execution of “homos.”

“Turn to Leviticus 20:13,” he told the congregation, “because I actually discovered the cure for AIDS.” Anderson explained that “everybody’s talking about” having an AIDS-free world by 2020. He explained that “we can have an AIDS-free world by Christmas” if we would follow what it says in Leviticus.

“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them,” he quoted from Leviticus before telling his followers:

And that, my friend, is the cure for AIDS. It was right there in the Bible all along — and they’re out spending billions of dollars in research and testing. It’s curable — right there. Because if you executed the homos like God recommends, you wouldn’t have all this AIDS running rampant.


Later in his sermon, Pastor Anderson condemned churches that accept LGBT individuals before firmly laying out his church’s policy: “No queers allowed in this church –and all God’s people said” [“Amen” from the congregation] “Amen.”

He said some may question the legality of his “no homos” policy, but “against such there is no law.” He continued, stamping his feet like a five-year-old throwing a tantrum:

No homos will ever be allowed in this church as long as I am pastor here. NEVER! Say ‘You’re crazy.’ No, You’re crazy if you think that there’s something wrong with my “no homo” policy.

Why is his “no queer” rule so important? Because all gay people are pedophiles, and there are plenty of children in attendance during any given week being spoon-fed Anderson’s lies and hate, of course! He explained:

You think we need some pedophile running around here? Now, let me just say right now — and you can go ahead and just put this in your pipe and smoke it — all homos are pedophiles. There, I said it. They’re all pedophiles.

Anderson explained that “we would have a better attitude toward homos” if “we just realized that they’re pedophiles.”

Because just think — what would be your attitude toward pedophiles? That should be your attitude toward homos. Would you have pedophiles over for a family gathering? Would you invite pedophiles into the church? No — that’s what they are.

“Just no homos allowed,” he said.

Terms of Service


  • Kingminnie says:

    This must be his audition for Fred Phelp’s replacement. Isn’t it odd, how these horrible people that call themselves “christian” always go to Leviticus for their backup? Only the passages they want, though.

  • James Burns says:

    that bible verse meant fornication period.

  • Patricia Garvin Fox says:

    Welcome to the equally vile successor to Fred Phelps. He’s obviously as ignorant as he is bigoted. He clearly doesn’t understand that 90% of HIV cases worldwide are in heterosexuals. I guess executing them would be a small price to pay for cleansing the world of “homos.”

    I’d cheerfully bet he is guilty of one of the other Levitical “sins” as he demands the death penalty for others. Did he have bacon for breakfast? Is any of his clothing made from (gasp!) two or more fibers? And precisely what did he think Jesus meant when he commanded that we live one another and judge not lest we be judged?

    It’s World AIDS day as I write this. I’m reminded of what it was like in the early days of the pandemic at which time I worked in a cancer hospital that treated AIDS/ARC patients because we were experienced in the care of the immunocompromised . It was also because bigotry like this turned many of those patients away elsewhere. It was a time when mention of HIV on a death certificate often meant that grieving families would face beng turned away fro funeral home after funeral home.

    I remember a sweet 14 year old virgin told to stay away from the parish where her family had worshiped for decades because she had AIDS from a blood transfusion. Of course, the osteosarcoma that had cost her a leg also made the church uncomfortable even before a life saving transfusion turned into a death sentence. I remember falling to my knees when hers was the first panel I saw on a visit of the AIDS Quilt here. It was covered with pictures of a vibrant family before creeps Iike guy turned them into pariahs.

    I remember a young gay man, barely out of his teens, weeping not from the IV I’d started in his fragile veins but because looking at my gloved hands and head to toe isolation gear that he would die without ever touching another human being.

    I will never understand someone who claims to follow Jesus who looks at another human being searching for some difference to make them worthy of hate or even execution instead of seeing a child of the same father as themself.

    • Roger Bettelyoun says:

      From one of the millions of ‘diseased homos’ out there, I say THANK YOU for such a brilliant and touching post. I wish there were MORE people just like you!!

      • GetHubNub says:

        He’s one of yours, he’s obviously gay too putting on some show to try and damage Christianity. He’s a fraud, fake and you just want to play into the lie.

        • Guest says:

          This type of response is par for the course from Christians that think they and their religion are better than everyone else and their beliefs, the facts, and just anything that rubs them the wrong way, really. We’ll be glad to have him as one of ours over here on the side of logic and compassion. The only fraud and fake here is you, parading around every Sunday acting like you’re a wonderful soul, then coming to the internet to be your true volatile self. You think supporting genocide will get you into some kind of heaven? Good luck with that.

        • Lateralus says:

          He’s obviously “one of yours?” This type of response is par for the course from Christians that think
          they and their religion are better than everyone else and their beliefs,
          the facts, and just anything that rubs them the wrong way, really. Then inevitably when the crazies like this one come out suddenly they’re not responsible at all for this fanaticism. GET REAL. He’s one of yours, gay or not. The only people responsible for warping him to this degree, filled with hatred, anger and lack of love for his fellow human beings are his Christian brothers and sisters in his family and church.

        • Swami22 says:

          Says another fraud of god…

        • Tim Arvizu says:

          100% of all damage done to Christianity comes from within. Look not outside for your enemies for they dwell there with you and call you brother or sister. Faith cannot be destroyed except from the corruption that is allowed to breed within.

    • Sorry the Bible is just so much bullshit. Some of it may be true, but if you take the Bible seriously how can you tell what is right from wrong.
      It is much easier to realize it is a book for ancient times and in no way applicable to today’s world. If you have a brain, and i realize many Christians do not, you do not need it to know what is right and wrong.

      • Peter Newman says:

        The bible is a collection of nonsensical misogynistic and patriarchal myths based on previous pagan beliefs with a helping of monotheistic Zoroastrian legends written by itinerant sheepherders for the express purpose of maintaining their primitive tribal society and thus rationalizing the slaughter of all those outside of their belief system.

  • tblackmon says:

    willfully ignorant, vile, sociopaths have always been with us, the sad fact is that there are people who listen to this mental miscreant and they are allowed to vote, drive cars, and breed.

  • Kim Serrahn says:

    I can’t believe that people actually sit and listen to the tripe that is coming out of his mouth. When’s God’s lighting bolt when you need it. And doesn’t he know that Most pedophiles are straight guys.

  • Sandra Schomberg says:

    this “being” does not deserve to be called a preacher. he is vile and evil, spreading nothing but ignorance and hate. why would anyone sit and listen to this? life has to be painful to carry so much hate.

  • Terri Hemker says:

    If there are women in his church I’m assuming that they were either abused by their fathers or their husbands….

  • Satan says:

    Me thinks he doth protest too much about the Gays… Pastor Stephen J. Anderson in 5, 4, 3, 2 and… you just know it, right?

    • Veronica_Anne says:

      Wish that I could give a boatload of votes up to your comment. (Shakespeare was right).

      How many countless studies have proven a link between homophobia and homosexuality?

      This one from NIH.Gov:


      The authors investigated the role of homosexual arousal in exclusively heterosexual men who admitted negative affect toward homosexual individuals. Participants consisted of a group of homophobic men (n = 35) and a group of nonhomophobic men (n = 29); they were assigned to groups on the basis of their scores on the Index of Homophobia (W. W. Hudson & W. A. Ricketts, 1980). The men were exposed to sexually explicit erotic stimuli consisting of heterosexual, male homosexual, and lesbian videotapes, and changes in penile circumference were monitored. They also completed an Aggression Questionnaire (A. H. Buss & M. Perry, 1992). Both groups exhibited increases in penile circumference to the heterosexual and female homosexual videos. Only the homophobic men showed an increase in penile erection to male homosexual stimuli. The groups did not differ in aggression. Homophobia is apparently associated with homosexual arousal that the homophobic individual is either unaware of or denies.

      PMID: 8772014 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE]

      • Tim Arvizu says:

        When homosexuals express themselves through homophobic conduct, it is a result of their self-loathing and overwhelming need to live up to prevailing heterosexual norms. Through out time, our society has put great pressure on young men to conduct themselves in what society deems acceptable behavior. Most of the men shown in the above photos are those of the so-called conservative mind set, which, to the most part, resulted in a collapse of their lively hoods when exposed for who they really were. Too bad they chose the religious and political direction they took which resulted in their perceived need to live a lie. I have known liberal and, a couple, rightwing politicians who faired much better by being honest from the outset. Maybe, in the future, the need to be someone other than who we are will become just another misfortunate part of our past. It is sad that so many who have so much to give present day society, through honesty, have to expend so much precious energy living a lie.

    • Lateralus says:

      This level of hatred brought to you by the inability to reconcile sexual orientation with deep-rooted religious values. These two major parts of personal identity clash in really horrific ways and really warp a person- it must be some kind of torture to be at constant odds with yourself. Pressure from the family and church… and It’s only a matter of time before all that pressure and self-loathing gets channeled into what? Extreme anti-gay activism, maybe? Proposing genocide of gay people? Or just leaving the church?
      You can’t pray the gay away.

  • Dartsblaster2011 says:

    IF there were any justice from below OR on high or anywhere else, that evil piece of garbage would find himself the sperm donor of a couple of gay kids, preferably two of each gender,

  • pixeloid says:

    He’s making terroristic threats and inciting violence. He should be treated like every other terrorist.

  • Christine says:

    People throw around the phrase “he’s a Nazi” all too easily, but in this case, I think it is justifiable. Keeping people like this out of power is vital because it CAN happen here if we let it.
    What a vile man.

  • Ben Andrews says:

    He must be arrested for promoting murder. If some one acts upon his advice he should be convicted of aiding and abetting. His crazy cure for aids would be the same as killing heterosexual lovers to cure syphilis. He is insane! Lock him up!

  • truth says:

    where there is ignorance, there is hate, and misunderstanding, where you also find bafoons like this. Pedophiles dont discriminate the gender, there are pedophile males who molest little girls too. I championed his crusade against illegal immigration checks and over zealous police with control issues, i dug the way he beat them in court, and that justice prevailed over corrupt government officials, but just to demonstrate the nuance of life, this guy just turned out to be an ignorant simple minded fool, go figure

  • rogerrramjet says:

    This asshole has obviously been off his meds for quite sometime. Says something that his congregation attends this vile venom laden “church”.

  • Veronica_Anne says:

  • Queenotfu says:

    The fact that people will go to see someone spew hatred in a church is just so vile. I’m pretty sure that if there IS a heaven and hell; he has a very special place reserved all ready with his name on it.

  • Bill Steffenhagen says:

    Yes, I, too, think he doth protest too much, lending weight to the idea that he is a terribly conflicted gay man. Add to that his stereotypically gay-man’s-dream physical appearance (totally masculine and remarkably handsome) which he can’t help but be aware of and I, at least, feel quite comfortable with the suspicion that he’s a very frantic closet case; which makes him a ticking time bomb. What a waste!!

  • LM says:

    I am not agreeing with this pastor’s hateful ranting in the least. But to address your misleading statement, “He clearly doesn’t understand that 90% of HIV cases worldwide are in heterosexuals.” Since when would that be? Before the 1980s, when this devastating illness contracted and spread by gay men was diagnosed as HIV-AIDS and found prevalent in men who had sex with men? The disease spread to heterosexuals when they had sexual relationships with homosexual men who didn’t know, or either hid, their illness from future sexual partners. The blood supply became contaminated also, before stringent testing was put into place to determine the safety of blood donations, as transfusion patients , like the 14 year-old virgin you mentioned, had been becoming tragically infected by HIV.

  • A P Montague says:

    I think he needs to go back and read that bible that he loves so much again since he seems to have conveniently overlooked some fairly important parts of it: 1) Exodus 20:13 “Thou shalt not kill”, 2) Matthew 1:1-3 Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 3)Matthew 7:12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets., 4) Mark 12:31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” Having been raised in a household where both grandparents were ordained Pentecostal ministers, I DO understand the principles here. I was even taught how to read from the bible. Although I no longer practice the faith, I will freely admit that there are some very good rules on how to lead a good life held within this work…too bad they are caught up together in all of the rape, incest, slavery, chauvanism, bigotry, idolotry, adultery, and on and on.

    This TEAHADIST should be arrested for inciting great bodily harm and promoting killing gays. Why did he stop with them? Is he so blinded by his bigotry and hatred he has no idea about many AIDS patients being heterosexual? Just wanting people to kill people makes him a Godlees being.
