View Full Version : Baptist pastor prays for Obama to die like Kennedy

Arizona will NOT be outdone when it comes to crazies..."spiritual warfare" they call it.
Can you feel the love?
"I'm gonna pray that he dies and goes to hell when I go to bed tonight. That's what I'm gonna pray," he told his congregation.
---------------
Sunday at church, pastor Anderson told FOX 10, "I hope that God strikes Barack Obama with brain cancer so he can die like Ted Kennedy and I hope it happens today."

Anderson is continuing to encourage his parishioners to pray for the president's death, but says he doesn't condone killing.

"Who would Jesus strike down with brain cancer?"

Remember Machine Gun Chris, the guy with the assault rifle at the president's speech here in Phoenix? You guessed it, he totes his gun to his church too. As a contrast, we didn't take weapons into church even in Vietnam.

An equal opportunity hater, the pastor hates dubya too, though he hasn't put any Jesus curses on him yet (that we know of).

Pretty sure I don't follow you, Art. When Rev. Wright said "God damn America," he meant it in the same way that a white evangelical preacher in 1971 meant in an anti-war sermon,

"May God condemn America" or "God will judge and condemn America". Given what they were talkiing about, a perfectly normal remark for a protestant preacher speaking in the prophetic tradition.

Not even within lightyears of praying for someone's death.

Do the Baptists have any mechanism to defrock roque clergymen? Most other Christian denominations would have that man out of that church, out of the clergy and blacklisted in a heart beat. What does it say about any member of the congregation that goes back there this coming Sunday?

As I understand it, Baptist churches enjoy a far greater degree of autonomy than do other denominations, with a comparitively weak governing structure.

John of Phoenix

I don't know that there's a mechanism to frock them in the first place. Just grab a bible and start yellin'.

My folks took me to a Baptist church twice when I was about ten. I must have been pretty down after the second time because my dad asked me what was wrong and my dad wasn't much of a "how's your psyche" kind of guy. I told him it was kind of a downer being damned to hell at age 10 never having had a chance to do anything wrong yet.

What a jackass. If you don't like what an elected official is doing, do it the right way - get off your lazy butt, get a really better idea, get yourself or your chosen representative elected and try to make a difference. Praying for an evil outcome will only reflect badly on the petitioner.

I can see why the hardest-shelled Baptists would vote Republican, if this is true. If their Church of Choice doesn't have a lot of layers between the Almighty and the average Joe in the pew halfway down the nave, then why would Gubbimint need any more?

I'm going to say something here that's going to be easy to misinterpret, but I would like people to understand that it's not coming from a hateful place in my heart: I think that if you maybe don't have a lot of formal education, maybe don't read all that well, but you pack the children up every week and go to church without fail; work hard at your job and maybe don't get recognized for it because the manager's a DamnYankee* who doesn't know his ass from his elbow...

I can see why so many people in the Bible Belt put so much emphasis on what they get in church. If their pastor isn't preaching love-- if he hasn't actually bothered to READ that Book he keeps throwin' around-- it's not a long step from there to burning crosses.

For a certain sort of person, anyway.



*I'm picturing a recent college graduate from one of the Northern state colleges, first real job out of school, probably still using Clearasil, trying to tell some grizzled old boiler tank of a factory hand that how he's doing it is "wrong." That wouldn't go over well anywhere, but particularly not in a microculture where book-lernin' is frowned on as a tool of liars and thieves.

Since I don't believe there is anyone "out there" to pray to, I doubt that.

But it still matters what you pray for - where you focus your thoughts, where you exhort others to focus theirs. It isn't "God" who answers prayers - it's man.

But I'm sorry there is a whole lot of truth in that phrase Obama said. It struck home for many of us who voted for him and agree with it. Sorry if my liberal, no need for a gun, northern Ivy league elitist educated brie sipping ( exactly how does one sip brie ? ) doesn't jive with God fearin, firearm lovin, put all the uppity nigra's in their place, this country is goin ta hell in a hand basket of socialism, baptist preaching death, gun toting nutjob like the preacher in this thread.

Funny how you use the Obma quote they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion" in a thread about a bitter religious pastor who brings Guns to church and advocates praying for the Presidents death as a way to explain their frustrations.

Further, those groups that such statements are aimed at are often the victims of prejudice themselves for many generations. . .

Dude when does the fringe become the reality ?

We got gun nuts buying more ammo than they know what to do with it.

We got nuts bringing AR-15 with signs to protest the president.

We got Sarah Palin and her drones preaching God fearing stupidity and millions lapping it up.

Daily I'm still confronted by blatantly racist people who amaze me with there God fearing, Obama hating ignorance. Combined with the incessant talk radio vitriol give a huge populace across this country. I'm sorry Paul I honestly think there is WAY more broad swath of contempt across entire cultural, geographic, or socieconomic groups of Americans who are Religious / Gun Nuts than you know. These days I'm seeing a HUGE new group of Americans. The ignorant, Revenge Republicans, who's only agenda is to be angry and organize against any Obama policies.

Scary times - I see it more and more - I miss sensible conservatives like William F Buckly who emphasizing moderation in the political balancing of interests towards the goals of social harmony and common good. Men like Edmund Burk his classical conservative position insisted that conservatism has no ideology, in the sense of a utopian program, with some form of master plan.

Now we have Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and and all the other nuts as the voice of the Revenge Conservatives. And trust me they have a HUGE audience lapping it up

The difference here is I believe most people are good and only want to do the right thing while you try to label and box them up to suit your agendas. The majority today is independent, You need to look up the meaning of that word.
The majority are conservative whether identified right or left.

Painting with a broad brush to suit your agenda can and is backfiring.

Wouldn't call it eager. If Paul revere was considered eager then maybe. Big misconception is I post to bring others over to my side which I do not. I post for those who know it in their hearts but don't get to see the other information. Most who read my stuff don't ever reply as they have seen what price to be had for agreeing or defending me. Only a few exceptions get a pass.
Many do not have the time or experience to dig so I do it and put up links. Just like car buffs, airplane guys and such do.
Thing is no one has to click it and look. One has the choice not to.

Dear Nanoose; you have quite misunderstood the Right-Wing point of view!

They don't want the 46 million Americans with no health insurance cover to get covered, not because they are cruel, but because they so value the chance to acquire virtue by doing small acts of charity towards them. You see, they are really very kind, unlike we Liberals, who just want to fix them up on a Gummint Scheme, which deprives all those kind Christian souls of an opportunity to practise charity.

John of Phoenix

Milo, here's your answer about ordaining Baptist pastors. This is Anderson's bio from his web site.

Pastor Steven Anderson started Faithful Word Baptist Church on December 25, 2005.

Pastor Anderson has been married since August of 2000 to Zsuzsanna Anderson. Their children are Solomon (7), Isaac (5), John (3), Miriam (1), and Rebecca.

Pastor Anderson holds no college degree but has well over 100 chapters of the Bible committed to memory, including almost half of the New Testament.

Originally from Sacramento, CA, Brother Anderson was a member of Regency Baptist Church. On November 12, 2005, Brother Anderson sought counsel from his pastor, Stephen Nichols, about starting a church in Phoenix, AZ. They discussed and prayed about it and decided that Brother Anderson would move to Phoenix immediately to start the church. The next day, on November 13, 2005, Pastor Nichols called him up on the platform of Regency Baptist Church in the Sunday morning service and had the church pray for Brother Anderson as he would be going out to start this new church. Faithful Word Baptist Church began 6 weeks later as an independent, autonomous Baptist church.

Since that time God has blessed Faithful Word Baptist Church tremendously. Hundreds have been saved, many have been baptized, and many more have learned to win souls both door-to-door and in their day-to-day lives.

Ian McColgin

Baptist, various congregational (UCC etc) and many evangelical and pentacostal churches are of "radical Protestant" polity where the congregation ordains the minister.

There are a number of Baptist and Congregational associations that provide for training and support of ministers, help congregations find well trained and responsible ministers, etc. but even then it's a cooperative matter and the congregation is the final authority.

This also makes it perfectly natural for energetic preachers, whether trained or self-taught or untaught, to establish their own ministry and attract followers. And then identify themselves as whatever.

Those who oppose infant baptism are the Baptists.

And how! The website is fascinating, as is Mrs. Anderson's blog. No shortage of hatred there. Her husband tangled with some cop, so she's hoping he'll be killed in a traffic accident...... Bible colleges are comprehensively excoriated, as are pretty much every other denomination, sect or church that calls itself "Christian" (including most other Baptists) as well as all the usual suspects (abortionists, gays, liberals, working women, male obs/gyn doctors, people who watch TV, people who listen to secular music.....)

If these are the folk I would meet in heaven if I were to be saved, then I really do think hell will be preferable - and the website leaves me in no doubt about what that will be like!

Sadly, you are correct. It seems in the world of Mr. and Mrs. Anderson, almost everything is evil and hateful, except the love of money. Forget those pesky camels and needles and so forth.....

Its a wonder if anyone here believes any of the card carrying libs have one ounce of caring or compassion for their fellow man?

In time ones true motivations are revealed.I do. I spend 4 hours a day, 5 days a week volunteering at a local homeless shelter. I see everyday what the end result of our policies toward the poor can end up delivering.


*edit* Paul, I'm just holding up a shoe. You're the one whining about how well it fits.

Funny, I saw the same good preacher in this video last week. Seems like he got his skull thumped by the police a few weeks ago.

Misery loves company and he comes here to convince us we are as miserable as he is. He gets his ass kicked around and cries like a little child, throws rocks and stalks off occasionally. Then returns for more with the same old useless ammo. That in itself is daft.

Perhaps if wasn't so immediately agressive and quick to dole out the insults, he'd come off as less of a wanker and conspiracy nut. I don't think Mr. Revere was galloping through the streets announcing "Alright you idiot sheeple, you corporatist puppets, the British are coming, but you're too complacent to even realize it, you comfortable fools. And if you don't agree with me in every detail, you can go to hell. You might be asleep to the tyranny, but my eyes are wide open! Here, help yourselves to some of my informative pamphlets. What? You don't don't want my pamphlets???!!!"

FWIW
The noodnik who wore his pistol to the town hall meeting in New Hampshire is a former member of "Pastor" Anderson's congregation.

You know, Jesus never went after the Romans at all. Where does this kind of political aggressiveness come from in the U.S.? I just don't get it.

From the Republican Party. They let the rabble in and the rabble took over.

Dear Nanoose; you have quite misunderstood the Right-Wing point of view!

They don't want the 46 million Americans with no health insurance cover to get covered, not because they are cruel, but because they so value the chance to acquire virtue by doing small acts of charity towards them. You see, they are really very kind, unlike we Liberals, who just want to fix them up on a Gummint Scheme, which deprives all those kind Christian souls of an opportunity to practise charity.

You're starting to sound like a local. Careful.

I am pretty sure that the Almighty can be at least as selectively deaf as the average middle middle aged male.

Naw, man, they call Him out when it's time for Him to get to work.

Mr. Miller, shaking, stood his ground. He said he was furious that the senator’s staff [Arlen Specter, R-Pennsylvania] had limited the questioning. “One day,” he said to loud applause, “God is going to stand before you, and he’s going to judge you!”

He got some press here too. We have Border Patrol inspection stations on the Interstates and one of the dogs alerted to his car. The Border Patrol guy tells him to pull over for an inspection and he starts in about the 4th amendment and refuses to move his car. At all. He's blocking traffic and won't budge.

The BP agent calls over the station's State Trooper and things escalate. The trooper breaks the guys car window, zaps him with a taser, hauls him out of the car and off to the clink. In the process, he got his head cut on the broken window. Turns out SCOTUS decided these searches are legal back before this guy was born. Live and learn, Parson.
