From Fox News:

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.

Even though he says he doesn’t condone killing, listen to excerpts from his actual sermon here: Rick Sanchez Report-CNN

  1. As a Christian, I am so embarassed that people will mistakenly think that this man is one as well! How much harm has been done in the name of God; and God is not about death and killing and hating. He’s all about life and love and acceptance.

    I’ll be praying for this guy!

  2. I just had to add a comment on this one. I live in Phoenix and when I heard this report I was so upset! It is isolated (thankfully) incidents like this that give Christians a bad name.

    I’m not familiar with his church but he certainly isn’t following the teachings of the Bible. Of course, we can disagree but the world needs to see something different in us as we have the Holy Spirit within us. They should see the love of Jesus.

    I think of how kind Jesus was to the Samaritan woman at the well. He didn’t get in her face and tell her how horrible she was. He already knew and He loved her.

    May they know us by our love and not by hatred.
