“Anti-LGBT pastors warned that God would seek vengeance in their first sermons after a U.S. Supreme Court ruling effectively legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states. Pastor Steven Anderson, of Faithful Word Baptist Church, called for stoning to death ministers who performed same-sex marriage ceremonies and repeated his call for the execution of all LGBT people.
““I hate them with a perfect hatred,” Anderson shouted. “I count them my enemies.” Anderson said the Bible consistently called Christians to “have the guts to stand up to our culture that now accepts homos.” “Where’s the call to repentance?” he said. “Where’s the hope, where’s the love and the grace? It isn’t there.”
When asked who was to blame for the historic Supreme Court ruling, Anderson opined: “The President. Christians. All of us. Including Greece.” Asked to elaborate on why he included Greece as a culprit, Anderson commented: “Because we wouldn’t be in this position if it hadn’t been for Greeks and their damn island.”
The pastor referred to the “Greek island of Lesbos, where both the term “lesbian” and the sexual identification are believed to have originated. The word “lesbian” is derived from the name of the island, where in the 6th-century BCE a female poet by the name of Sappho was left with a group of young women, and later proclaimed her love for girls.
“God will have his vengeance upon the Greeks. He’s already started to punish them, just look at the latest developments in their economy. They are going through a financial disaster and that’s God’s punishment for their wicked ways. And guess what? America is next. It’s true – they were one of the most advanced civilizations of the ancient world, but there are two sides to everything. Theirs was just to deviant to survive, and as you can see – the Lord isn’t shy of repeating himself,” Anderson said.
He added: “Greece is the cradle of today’s Western civilization. And that’s never been more obvious than right now – we are following in their footsteps. The American society is a clone of Ancient Greece and this latest Supreme Court ruling is the final nail in the coffin. I’m afraid it’s going to be all downhill from now on.”
