American Taliban Watch: Pastor Steven Anderson

The "Christian" right strikes again.

On August 16, Anderson delivered a sermon titled "Why I Hate Barack Obama."

In it, Anderson admitted he prays for the president's death.

It is a position he reiterated Sunday.

"If you want to know how I'd like to see Obama die, I'd like him to die of natural causes," said Anderson. "I don't want him to be a martyr, we don't need another holiday. I'd like to see him die, like Ted Kennedy, of brain cancer."

The sermon so incensed Bill Demski he traveled from his home in Glendale to picket Anderson's 10:30 a.m. Sunday morning service in Tempe.

"A man of the cloth wants to kill the president, how sick can you get," asked Demski.
