— Steven Anderson, Pastor at Arizona’s Faithful Word Baptist Church, in a sermon titled “AIDS: The Judgement of God,” posted to YouTube on Monday. Anderson told his congregation if they wanted an “AIDS-free world by Christmas,” they should “turn to Leviticus 20:13.” That particular verse is a favorite of anti-gay religious people, stating, “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.” According to Anderson, “[that] is the Cure for AIDS…. Because if you executed the homos like God recommends, you wouldn’t have all this AIDS running rampant.”
The full sermon is below.
