A Phoenix-area pastor has started to draw protesters to his congregation after he delivered a sermon titled, “Why I Hate Barack Obama,” and told his parishioners that he prays for President Obama’s death.
Pastor Steven Anderson stood by his sermon in an interview with MyFOXPhoenix, which reports that the pastor continues to encourage his parishioners to join him in praying for the president’s death.
“I hope that God strikes Barack Obama with brain cancer so he can die like Ted Kennedy and I hope it happens today,” he told MyFOXPhoenix on Sunday. He called his message “spiritual warfare” and said he does not condone killing.
He does not condone killing… unless God is doing it… at his behest. Dude, using religion and your sway over religious adherents to try to bring about someone else’s death is still “killing”. It would be delicious irony if you somehow managed that and ended up dying and showing up at the Pearly Gates. How bad would that suck for you when you heard “Yeah, about that whole ‘praying for someone else’s death’ thing? Yeah, we don’t like that so much around here. It’s kind of like metaphysical contract killing. Good effort, though.”
What a douchebag.
