More about MD Marriage Alliance's 'worthy of death' preacher; January sermon links gays to bestiality

by Jeremy Hooper

By now you've surely seen Pastor Robert Anderson, the minister who said gays and supporters are "worthy of death" and on "the wrong side of eternity," much to the casual approval and expressed delight of Maryland Marriage Alliance head Derek McCoy. If not, here it is again:

Never gets old. Or less chilling.

But now I've found a few more things worth mentioning. First, something that strengthens the connection between the campaign and Anderson. Turns out that Anderson hosted a campaign event in his church earlier this month, at which Maryland Marriage Alliance provided representation:

So it's clear that the campaign has been aware of how he engages for some time. But is what we saw on that panel an anomaly or is it par for Anderson's typical course? Consider the following.

On the front page of the Colonial Baptist website, the church encourages readers to look at what is labeled "A Christian Response to Same-sex Marriage":

So what's at that link? It's an outline for a sermon that Anderson delivered earlier this year—a sermon where words like "detestable" and "dogs" are front and center, where "change" is encouraged, and where beastiality (sic) is said to be a logical extension of civil marriage equality law. Check it out:

Really? This is the "Christian response" to equal marriage rights? This is what the campaign supports? This is the kind of teaching that the state of Maryland could theoretically accept as basis for taking away the marriage law?

It should be noted that Anderson is publicly sticking with his "worthy of death" comments. Fair enough, pastor. In fact, why stop there? How about convincing your obviously good pals at the Maryland Marriage Alliance to turn those comments and this sermon into a campaign ad. Let's put it all out there!
