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.
