Tempe Pastor Who Thinks Government Should Put Homosexuals to Death Now Concerned About "Nazi" Border Patrol

It's been about a year and a half since Tempe pastor Steven Anderson told New Times he believed "the government should put [homosexuals] to death," but now he's got a new cause -- driving to Border Patrol checkpoints and letting the agents know they're pretty much Nazis.

Anderson, who leads the Faithful Word Baptist Church -- also known to the Southern Poverty Law Center has a hate group -- has a pretty lengthy history of antics that make the average person give a heavy sigh.

He's been unsuccessfully praying for the death of President Obama since 2009 -- in a special prayer he titled "Abort Obama."

Now he's getting the anti-government crowd riled up with the video above, as he drives around to Border Patrol checkpoints to be a total dick refuse their requests.

Anderson's done that before, a little more than three years ago, and ended up being on the receiving end of a Department of Public Safety officer's Taser blast because of it.

Aside from blasting the agents for having to stop at their "Nazi checkpoint," Anderson accomplished precisely nothing except earning the accolade of "patriot" from his fellow wing-nuts.

Whether it's intentional or not, Anderson's scenes are pretty similar to a scene from the show South Park, as he drops the "I thought this was America" line a few times.

Freedom, 'Merica, etc., etc.
