Barely 24 hours after the massacre of LGBT people in Orlando, Florida, a Christian pastor in the US posted a video celebrating the attacks.
Pastor Steven L Anderson, from a Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona, published a ‘response’ to the Orlando killings last night that was full of hate-speech.
The good news is that there’s 50 less pedophiles in this world, because, you know, these homosexuals are a bunch of disgusting perverts and pedophiles. That’s who was a victim here, are a bunch of, just, disgusting homosexuals at a gay bar, okay?
But the bad news is that this is now gonna be used, I’m sure, to push for gun control, where, you know, law-abiding normal Americans are not gonna be allowed to have guns for self-defense.
And it gets worse from there…
UPDATE: The original video was deleted by YouTube for “hatespeech”, but here is a copy:
This is how his Church describes itself
We are a local New Testament church reaching the Phoenix area with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Don’t expect anything contemporary or liberal. We are an old-fashioned, independent, fundamental, King James Bible only, soul-winning Baptist church.
There are vigils organised across the UK (London, Leeds, Glasgow, Manchester, Brighton, Coventry, Edinburgh and Nottingham) in solidarity with the Orlando victims this week.
A sad reminder that homophobia is still prevalent everywhere…
