Pastor Steven Anderson, of the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona, slammed the concert-goers who went to see the Eagles of Death Metal at the Bataclan theater in Paris on Nov. 13, which was one of the targets of the terrorist attacks (video below).

According to the Friendly Atheist, Anderson didn't condone the attacks, but did preach on Nov. 15:

There is something about when you go to a concert of death metal, somebody might get killed! You know, you’re worshiping death, and then, all of a sudden, people start dying! "Oh, wait a minute, what's going on?"

Well, you love death so much, you bought the ticket, you love worshiping Satan! Well, let’s have some of Satan’s religion come in and shoot you! I mean, that’s what these people should think about before they go into such a wicked concert.

Later in his sermon, Anderson said: "Now, let me tell you about this sinful nation called France. Do you know that France is the only country in the world where more than 50 percent of the population thinks that adultery is fine? Did you know that?"

A 2013 Pew Research Center poll stated that 47 percent of French people believed that it was morally unacceptable for married people to cheat, but only 12 percent believed that having an affair is actually morally acceptable.
