PHOENIX (AP) - An Arizona pastor has triggered protests after preaching a sermon last month titled "Why I Hate Barack Obama."
Dozens of demonstrators gathered Sunday outside Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe to protest the message preached by the Rev. Steven Anderson.

Anderson told his congregation that he doesn't advocate taking up arms, but he does pray that Obama will die for the good of the nation.
Protesters on Sunday told KNXV-TV that they believe Anderson is guilty of hate speech."
Okay...I'll acknowledge that we don't like him. But is it ever right to pray for his death?
There's a video of this guy that goes with the story. watch it and tell us what you think.
Does your Bible contain a book called "Psalms"?
Read some of David's prayers in there.
Only Rev. Wright can pray for the death of ‘whitey’, otherwise it’s racist!!!
When I saw this, my first thought was “Bob”.
Old freepers will know what I mean.
He missed the part about loving your enemies as well.
I continue to be jaw-dropping amazed at what people decide God wants or even that God at all hates. Nuts like this guy should only be allowed inside the doors of the church if he agrees to fall on his knees and beg forgiveness.
Maybe it would be best to pray for his conversion.
Isn’t this the jackass that gives the “pisseth against the wall” sermon? Great, Fred Phelps is getting old, and now we get a replacement.
I think the guy missed a lot.
This guy needs to SHUT UP!!!! This is hardly helpful...
You are turning a blind eye to the problem
The precedent is Napoleon. He came back and came back to cause trouble. If the French had had the good sense to execute him in the beginning, they would have saved thousands of lives.
He is an idiot.
We have popular vote in this nation to elect our leaders; no matter how repugnant they may be.
If he wants to start killing off non Bible believing politicians; the list would get very long.
And lead us not into Tempe...
I just check and yeah, that’s him. What a moron. He’s just a “King James Only” preacher with a storefront church, and no one but the media and the dupes who sit in his folding chairs pays any attention to him.
Psalm 109, in particular
6 Appoint an evil man to oppose him;
let an accuser stand at his right hand.
7 When he is tried, let him be found guilty,
and may his prayers condemn him.
8 May his days be few;
may another take his place of leadership.
9 May his children be fatherless
and his wife a widow.
10 May his children be wandering beggars;
may they be driven [d] from their ruined homes.
11 May a creditor seize all he has;
may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor.
12 May no one extend kindness to him
or take pity on his fatherless children.
13 May his descendants be cut off,
their names blotted out from the next generation.
It also says love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you.
The Pastor should be praying for Obama’s repentence, not for his death.
Heresies distress again...
This is not a good witness.
Sometimes it is interesting observing your first thought. Mine was “of course a messiah has to die”..............
