Pastor Condemns Preacher Who Doesn't Support Death Penalty For Gays (Video)

| by Michael Allen

Pastor David Berzins recently slammed a fellow pastor for not supporting Pastor Steven Anderson’s call for homosexuals to be put to death per the Bible.

Pastor Anderson said in December 2014 that the "cure" for AIDS was for homosexuals to be put to death, per Leviticus 20:13 in the Bible.

Pastor Anderson also said gay people were to be put to death in 2009, per the Bible, because they recruit via rape and molestation, noted RightWingWatch.org.

Pastor Berzins, of the Word of Truth Baptist Church in Prescott, Arizona, was furious that an unidentified preacher asked to have his church removed from Pastor Anderson’s Faithful Word Baptist Church directory web site, noted RawStory.com (video below).

Pastor Berzins called the offending pastor and (pastors like him) "limp-wristed," reports the Daily Kos, for not standing "against the homosexual agenda."

Pastor Berzins said that he liked the offending pastor, but added, "Look, God came up with the laws of the Old Testament. They’re breathed by the Lord. And if you think that you know better on how to run a country than God has ordained, you think that your laws are better!"

Pastor Berzins also complained about Christians who lamented that the Old Testament law (Ten Commandments) was being removed from public, but don't support the judgment against "sodomites" in the same Old Testament law.
