Arizona pastor publicly condemns fellow preacher for not endorsing death sentence for gays

An Arizona pastor is going on the charm offensive this week, angrily condemning a fellow pastor for not endorsing the traditional Christian values of stoning gays to death.

The unnamed dissenting pastor requested that his congregation’s listing be removed from Steven Anderson’s church directory, a request which Pastor David Berzins of Word of Truth Baptist Church called an act of treason to his faith.

“I like the guy,” Berzins said. “He’s a Christian, he’s saved, he does soul-winning, he believes in the King James Bible, it’s a Baptist church — Independent Fundamental Baptist church.”

Even though the pastor in question believes that “homosexuality is a wickedness and preaches against it,” his faith is suspect because he won’t endorse putting gays to death, according to Berzin.

“But just because they don’t believe that [gays] should be stoned,” he said, that calls the pastor’s teachings into question.

Berzins insisted, that it’s “clear” people with same-sex attractions should be stoned to death.
