That didn't take long did it? Exactly one day after the attacks at Bataclan during an Eagles of Death Metal concert, Christian pastor named Steven Anderson, leader of the Faithful Word Baptist Church, who has said many hateful things, decided to turn his attention to people who, in his opinion, needed a stern talking to… the victims of the attack that left over 100 people killed.
ThePRP reports that Anderson, who clearly has never heard as much as one note of Eagles of Death Metal music, not understanding the name is sarcastic, chastised the attendees of the show for essentially getting what they deserve for worshipping death metal. During his sermon, he had this to say:
“When you go to a concert of death metal, somebody might get killed! You know, you’re worshiping death! And then, all of a sudden, people start dying!… Well, you love death so much, you bought the ticket, you love worshiping Satan! Well, let’s have some of Satan’s religion come in and shoot you!
I mean, that’s what these people should think about before they go into such a wicked concert. And look I’m not condoning what these Islamic murderers did, they’re wicked, they’re murders.
But you know what, nobody should be at a concert worshiping Satan with this drug pushing hillbilly faggot. And that’s what he is. I mean all you have to do is just Google this band. Somebody told me, somebody emailed me and told me ‘just hit Google Images, Eagles Of Death Metal‘ and these guys are just total sodomite looking freaks. You know, but nobody thinks about that. It’s just ‘oh no, let’s stand with France.'”
He rants even more about the band's frontman Jesse Hughes and the whole video has a level of insanity that I did not forsee possible. Even worse, is as he goes on this rant, you can clearly hear the audience agreeing with him.
The level of facepalm here is incredibly off the charts. Besides his lack of research on what the band actually sounds like, to have a rant like this exactly one day after this horrific attacks is not just tasteless, it is incredibly heartless and embarrassing.
Steven Anderson, you are a complete and utter piece of shit. In fact, you are an embarrassment to pieces of shit everywhere.
