Steven Anderson, Wacko Tempe Pastor, Now in Anti-Semitism Business

During an online chat, Pastor Anderson proudly describes how he got four rabbis to participate in his upcoming, anti-Semitic documentary

Remember Steven Anderson? You know, the lunatic pastor of Tempe's Faithful Word Baptist Church, infamous for praying for President Barack Obama's death, as well as for calling for the execution of all gays, and for getting Tasered at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint because he's an idiot?

Well, he's added a new outrage to his catalog of crazy: Anti-Semitism.

These days, Anderson is all about bashing the Jews on YouTube, where he posts hate-filled sermons with such snappy titles as "The Jews and Their Lies," "Jews Are Anti-Christs," "Christ-Rejecting Jews Are Children of the Devil," "The Jews Are Our Enemies," and the ever-popular, "The Jews Killed Jesus."
