Pastor Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church in Arizona, infamous for his virulently anti-gay preaching and open calls for gays to be put to death, seems to have found at least one acolyte eager to help him spread his message.
In August, Anderson ordained Pastor Donnie Romero, who then established Stedfast Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas, where he preached the message last Sunday that all gays should "be put to death."
Romero says that if he ever goes "soft on sin," he hopes that his children will call him out and tell him to "get up there and rip on these queers because it's only getting worse and worse."
"I'm not going to let any of these dirty faggots inside my church," Romero said. "They are all pedophiles ... They're always trying to rape and hurt other people. They're relentless. They are relentless. They are predators and given an opportunity to snatch one of your children, they would do it in a heartbeat":
