Aaron Jackson's charity Planting Peace has launched a crowdfunding campaign to send lumps of coal on Christmas Eve to “naughty pastor” who called for the execution of gays.

Steven L. Anderson, pastor at Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona, made headlines last week when he told his congregation that an AIDS-free world is possible by Christmas. “[I]f you execute the homos like God recommends, you wouldn't have all this AIDS running rampant,” he said.

He backed up his claims in a follow up interview, saying that the Bible commands the government to execute gays.

“Well, it's not my job or the job of Christians to kill homosexuals,” Anderson said in Spanish. “But according to the Bible it is the job of the government to execute criminals and according to the Bible they are criminals. And it's the job of the government to execute killers, murderers and also homosexuals, according to the Bible.”

Planting Peace, which has previously targeted the anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church, responded with a crowdfunding campaign on Crowdrise.com.

“In response to his ridiculous and unbelievably offensive statement, Planting Peace invites you to make a donation that will go toward helping people with HIV/AIDS,” the group says in its pitch. “It's clear to us that Pastor Anderson falls on the 'naughty list' this year, so in addition, for ever donation we receive Planting Peace will send a lump of coal to Pastor Anderson in a festive package tied with a bow that will be delivered on Christmas Eve.”

As of Sunday, Planting Peace's campaign had surpassed its initial goal of $10,000 and was close to doubling it.
