-My letter in protest-
You, sir, are unquestionably a man of god. Yes. Little "g". You are not a man of God or any other proper name for some supreme being in the sky; you are your own arrogant god; the god of self.
You emit depraved hatred as if you were a perpetual volcano pitching down lava. You use the “good” book, the bible, to thrust a malevolent ember into the heart of anyone and anything that you consider unworthy of your kingdom. It is not the kingdom of God; it is your own fiefdom, your very own Eden, your own private, rather lonely, and most depraved paradise.
According to your logic, I feel that it is in your best interest that I urge you to cease your small-minded parade. The same God who instituted all of those arcane and, in my opinion, despicable laws you spoke of, had something to say about judging others and greed. He also said that we should stone children who are stubborn, put to death everyone who curses his father or his mother, cut both off from their own people any man who lies with a woman during her period, forgo cutting the hair at the sides of our head or clipping the edges of our beards, cancel every seven years anyone's debt, if a man has a stubborn and rebellious son he should be stoned to death, we are not to plant our fields with two kinds of seed, we are to kill anyone who works on a Sunday, and wearing polyester is a sin, as well as eating shellfish, we should support slavery, women are not to be teachers, we shall not touch the skin of a pig, and there’s also something in the good book about taking His name in vain, which, by the way, seems to be your specialty.
Yes. Your specialty is taking the Lord's name in vain. It’s not about uttering the word “Goddamn”, in any of its forms, it's about using His name as a mockery, as a means to a selfish end. Using it, not as, perhaps, a graceful instrument to teach, but as an instrument of terror. That’s right. You, Pastor Steve, terrorize people when you choose to bend, for your own individual ideal, the good book that your flock live and breathe.
You go on in your ranting sermon to defame Barney Frank as if he were not one of your own kind. As if he were not a human being. You denigrate all homosexuals, but you slander so much more than the few labels you viciously spout in your unhealthy repertoire; you slander humanity, religious or otherwise, with your insufferable delusions and unsophisticated spirit.
You recruit and rape via the word of God. You recruit through the molestation of your flock's holy book. You recruit through violation of God’s word. You infect all of society by spreading your disease. No. It’s not a physical disease, although it makes me physically ill to think of it, it is, ironically enough, your “sinning”, your depraved indifference that transfers this horrible infection. It is your wicked, filthy indifference to humanity that is spreading this sickness like a wildfire during a summer drought. Can’t you see that you’re spreading gloom through the children’s spirits? I mean, can you not see that? Can you not see that it’s just exploding in growth? Why? Because each self-infected preacher recruits far more than one disciple for Christ, because his whole life is about recruiting disciples for Christ, his whole life is about violating and hurting people and molesting children’s spirits for Christ's sake!
I’m here to tell you my truth, not to preach the bible or any other predetermined doctrine. I’m sick to death of soul sucking leeches! Let me tell you something else; our country is infested with self serving men and women of a little "g" god. You know who spouted hatred regarding a fellow human being? You know who was the architect of such a foul sermon? His name is Steve Anderson; he is a molester of children's spirits and he should be arrested for defamation and ruination of the human soul! Thrown in jail for interacting with the people’s precious minds with the goal of turning their God into a monster! You should be arrested for being an innocent spirit pedophile, a molester of the scriptures and rapist of the soul!
Surely you know the term, jihad... If by chance you don’t, you certainly should. You are calling for one against those that do not see life, or God, the way you do. You obviously want to wage a jihad, but I need to inform you that you should be careful what you wish for; you may not like or even recognize what you get.
One last observation, Steve, if I may... If, and I do mean if, if God does indeed look down upon us from heaven, if he indeed devises plans for those deemed “unworthy” of his grace, if he truly is the all vengeful and the all wrathful and the all forgiving and the all powerful and the all loving deity that you claim he is, I’m reasonably confident that you, dear Steve, have caught his eye.
