Arizona Pastor Uses Pulpit to Call Obama’s Mother a Whore

Arizona pastor Steven Anderson has a thing against women.

First of all he does not want women to use birth control because, according to him and his version of the Bible, “not only does birth control do damage to women, it hurts their body if they’re using the pills. And it also affects their character, causing them to be idle, tattle, gossip, turning aside after Satan.”

He also doesn’t want those womenfolk shouting ‘amen’ at him during his sermons.

“When I’m preaching and I say something that you agree with and that you believe in, and you say ‘amen,’ you’re saying ‘that’s true,’” he preached from the pulpit. “So here’s the thing, when I’m preaching, women should not express their opinion, even if it’s a positive opinion, even if she agrees with me.”

Most of all, he likes to call women who do not abide by his submissive rules – which including staying a home and raising kids – ‘whores.’

“Do not prostitute thy daughter to cause her to be a whore [by having access to birth control], lest the land fall to whoredom and the land become full of wickedness,” he told his flock. “And the United States today, fits that bill. If anybody has ever fit that bill, it’s the United States of America.”

Then last Sunday – just days before his congregation went to the polls – he spent a whole lot of time teaching his congregation that not only is Obama destroying America with universal preschool ‘brainwashing’ but that the President’s mother was one of those ‘whores’ he keeps warning his flock about all the time.

“Even according to the official version, little Barry boy is a bastard. Because he was conceived out of wedlock. His mother has an illegitimate marriage to a guy who’s already married to somebody else…and then he’s actually raised by a guy named Lolo Soetoro. That’s who is actually raising him, and then he’s going around as Barry Soetoro…” Anderson said, trying to pass off his political hatred for Jesus thoughts.

“Here’s the alternate version, which I actually believe to be reality” he then continued. “I do not believe that Barack Obama Sr. is probably even the real father. Because a lot of times, women will do this, wicked women will do this: where they would basically , you know, oh I’m pregnant, quick, marry somebody, OK, so basically, pass it off as, OK? Especially back in those days.”

It should be pointed out that using his pulpit in a political way just before election day could and should cost his church its tax-exempt status, although it probably won’t.

In the meantime, whether his sermon impacted the polls or not, Republicans won big in the area around Pastor Anderson’s Arizona church last Tuesday.

      AMEN! Or, sorry, I wasn’t supposed to give my opinion 🙂

  • liberalinlove

    Not sure what religion that’s about, but it isn’t Christianity.

  • lauralth

    Pretty much the reason I avoid churches today.

    • Debra Ranson

      I’m with you. People like this have totally turned me against religion. I believe in science, not a god….but this is what pushed me to start looking that way in the first place. If these people are christians…..heaven is no place I would want to be anyway.

      • lauralth

        Oh I haven’t given up on God….just bigoted Pharisees. Jesus called them out and warned us to beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing. I am not so unsure that the antichrist may come from the churches. From what I can see, all the ones who supposedly are Christian are all about hate and are nothing to what Jesus commanded us to do….care for the sick and the poor. I stay the course and worship him in the privacy of my home and try to stay true to his message of love and compassion.

        don’t worry-if he keeps that up, he will be hard pressed to make it. Keep believing-God is Love, not one of these characters!

  • Wendy Palm

    Pastor Anderson is a dangerous sick man….a psychopath.

    • guest

      Just like Bill Cosby…

  • Melody M. Tunnell

    Idiot

  • Jean Phillips-Beagle

    Pukes like him feel comfortable enough now to crawl out from the rocks they are under because of the Tea Party and ultraconservative Republicans always assaulting women and POTUS. Religions like his are full of hate and favor men. He says women should not talk to him during a sermon even if they agree with him. He is not a true Christian, but a sick, sick individual.

    • musikfanat22

      very sick…

    • Walter Goerlitz

      Yes, but even a broken clock is right twice a day, Obama mama was a wh*re.

  • Thom Lee

    Typical Christian! Especially fundamentalist. Control everything. Are always right. Keep women in their place and submissive. No different than Moslem sharia law. A fundamentalist is a fundamentalist!

      Satanism is a Jewish cult…

      • Thom Lee

        Don’t you know? Your religion is based on and comes from Judaism. Guess that makes you a Satanist! you sanctimonious jerk!

        • guest

          Satanismus ist eine jüdische Kult… Heil Hitler!

  • Robert Nemmer

    Shame on you! You creep! Your derogatory statements and beliefs about women are whacked out and false. I would be very careful making a statement about the Mother of the man who holds the highest office in this nation. That could be bad for your health. To equate any of this with God, goodness and Christianity is way whacked out! I would be very ashamed to be a member of your church. I wouldnt be saying Amen to anything. I would be throwing things at you, you fool You are a disrespect and disservice to God and this country. One of these days, the true Christians will unite and they will squash places like yours and Westboros.

  • mcorps

    Extremes begat extremes. Some of his facts seem ok. His conclusions are terrible.

    • qina

      Which of his facts seemed ok to you? Just curious.

  • Judy Aldrich

    You know I am starting to think when people like this so called pastor starts preaching how bad American is, they are the ones who are heading to destroy us. I believe they want us to start a war among ourself.

  • Mark McCullough

    Send that SICK creature back to the firey, sulfurous pits of brimstone next to his god, Satan. Today’s Christians
    do NOT follow Christ’s messages and teachings whatsoever. They place in their
    OWN interpretations and agendas. Consistently confusing, twisting, distorting,
    and altering Christ’s TRUE meanings to accommodate their own corrupt and abnormal
    ideals.

    • guest

      Satanism is a Jewish cult.

  • Isidis St Claire

    I wonder how many stupid, brain washed women belong to this sick jerk’s “church”?

  • Melinda Killie

    THIS man and ANY who heed and listen to THIS man are not Christian. I am not sure just WHAT they are, but they are NOT Christian.

  • Walter Goerlitz

    Well even a broken clock is right twice a day. Obama’s sperm receptacle loved being used and abused by black men. Wh*re seems to fit pretty well.
