Steven L. Anderson, pastor at Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona, on Sunday told his congregation that AIDS was God's judgment on gays.

In a sermon uploaded to YouTube and titled AIDS: The Judgement [sic] of God, Anderson states that he's discovered “the cure for AIDS.”

“You know, everybody's talking about let's have an AIDS-free world by 2020 … look we can have an AIDS-free world by Christmas.”

“Turn to Leviticus 20:13,” he said. “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.”

“And that, my friend, is the cure for AIDS. It was right there in the Bible all along. And they're out spending billions of dollars in research and testing. It's curable – right there. Because if you execute the homos like God recommends, you wouldn't have all this AIDS running rampant.”

In 2009 and again this year, Anderson openly prayed for the death of President Barack Obama, according to

On it's website, Faithful Word describes itself as an “old-fashioned, independent, fundamental, King James Bible only, soul-winning Baptist church.”
