Arizona pastor encourages death penalty for homosexuals.

Steven Anderson, pastor of the fundamentalist Faithful Word Baptist Church  appeared on an Irish radio broadcast on July 2, 2013.  In addition to saying he is not, “an effeminate man who lets my wife boss me around,” he also suggested that the government should enforce his interpretations of Bible doctrine and use the death penalty on homosexuals.

At the 51-minute mark of the hour-long appearance, Pastor Anderson advocated death for gays and lesbians:

“Well, the Bible actually teaches that gays should be executed… now, I’m not saying that I would ever kill anyone, because I never would, but I believe that the government should use the death penalty on murderers, rapists, homosexuals, and… that’s what the Bible teaches very clearly.”
