A pastor in Arizona has reportedly preached that ridding the world of all gay people would cure AIDS.
Pastor Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church cited Leviticus 20:13 reading, “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.”
Anderson then continued, "It was right there in the Bible all along ... It's curable right there... if you executed the homos like God recommends, you wouldn't have all this AIDS running rampant."
The church’s website says that Faithful Word is an independent Baptist church and Anderson “holds no college degree but has well over 140 chapters of the Bible memorized word-for-word.”
