Citizens Group In Arizona Forms to Stop Hateful Preaching By Man Who Wished for Pres. Obama's Death!
Breaking News. A Phoenix based group: Citizens Against Hate preaching Clergy
http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/group.php?gid=138682... has sent out press releases that it has formed in order to show the world that clergy who use religion to preach hate wil no longer be welcomed by the silence of a civilized citizenry in Arizona or in the rest of the nation. They are deeply concerned by the recent public blogging of Mr. Arthur Frommer that the rest of the world views their beloved state as nothing but one of right wing, racist extremist who control their legislature and that let people carry guns into bars.

Here is an excerpt from their web site: It has been in the news here in Arizona that a preacher named Steven Anderson in Tempe, Arizona preached in a sermon before the president arrived in Phoenix that he allegedly hoped that Obama would die like a snail and that he hated Obama. In attendance was a man that carried an assault rifle several days later at the event at which Obama was to speak.

Pastor Steven Anderson also allegedly preached that he thought all homosexuals should be shot.

This is the type of disgusting behavior which has destroyed and is continuing to destroy not only the democratic civilization of Arizona but of the United States of America as well. We ask that you please join us in publicly standing non-violently against these hate-mongering clergy who are liable to be the cause of the next act of American terrorism by the hateful brain washed people they are provoking to violence against our loved ones and our family. If we do not stand against these hate mongering clergy now, then we are inviting them to spread like a cancer not only throughout Arizona but throughout the United States as well. This is noble non-violent act of resistance against those who are out to destroy the unity of our country and our American civilization.
Thank you,

This group: Citizens Against Hate Preaching Clergy have also decided hold a "love rally" in front of the preacher, Mr. Anderson's church whom they believe is allegedly preaching hate by wishing for the death of president Obama (his sermon last week) and for believing that all homosexuals should be shot (also in past sermon). This reporter can only hope that their "love rally" works in driving out the religious hate against people of color and other groups that is now festering and growing more dangerous in the state of Arizona. Please, stay tuned for more updates on this situation and please check out another blog that details the activities of this preacher Anderson and the man who carried an assault rifle to president Barack Obama's speech because that man who goes by the name of Chris belongs to this alleged hate preacher Anderson's church :

2. Good for them
If he said that about homosexuals, he should be ridden on a rail out of the church and be considered a pariah in society.

6. Thank goodness somebody is standing up and speaking out
against this nut. Or those nuts, as there seem to be a lot of them. I have to say that I'm not at all anxious to visit Arizona anytime soon. But maybe the good folks there can make a difference.

If that's not reason enough to shut this piece of shit down, I don't know what is.
