Quote of the Day II: Sexist Preacher Edition

"It is wrong for a wife to refuse sex to her husband."

Steven Anderson, pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona

Anderson also wants the death penalty for homosexuals. What a nice guy.

Anderson said these bizarre things on Irish program.

17:50: Anderson talks about the social order in his household.

39:05: Someone asks what the pastor would do if he came home, wanted sex, and his wife said no.

51:00: The host asks Anderson what he thinks about homosexuality.

1:04:16: After the host blasts Anderson for taking the Bible too literally.

Anderson needs to actually read the Bible. The Bible has no mention of dinosaurs. If humans actually existed the same time humans wouldn't be around for very wrong. Apparently, Anderson watched too many episodes of Land of the Lost when he was a kid.

Anderson recites the Creationists talking point that carbon dating isn't real science because it is done with a geiger counter. Actually, a geiger counter is used to detecting radiation. A Accelerator mass spectrometry is used for carbon dating C-14 radioactive decay in carbon samples. Carbon dating isn't the same as using a geiger counter to look for jewelry on the beach.

Update: During the interview, Anderson tells a caller that her daughter is dressing like a whore because she is wearing a miniskirt. Did guy is extremely sexist.

Update: Ron Ferry posted this comment on Sulia about Pastor Steven Anderson.

Roy Ferry: Since I live near Tempe where this cretin has his church, I'm familiar with him. Among other things, he believes that women should not vote, that married women should not work outside the home, that women should be totally subservient to their husbands, that all contraceptives should be banned and that there is no such thing as mental illness. By the way, his "church" is located within a somewhat run down strip mall; and he works installing fire alarms to support his wife and seven children. Apparently, his ministry, or whatever you want to call it, isn't racking in the money and that's a good thing.

It is amazing that Christian leaders that preach intoleratnce, such as Tampa's Terry Kemple and David Caton, and the Westboro Baptist Church, have virtually no following. Yet these xenophobic fundamentalists get so much publicity. The media has failed badly in covering religion in America.
