Okay, we know this guy is, among a number of things, a fruitcake and possibly a deeply closeted fruit who is obsessed with what it means to be a man.

But I want to know more about his congregation. Is the size closer to six or sixty? Would some of them agree to be interviewed? Why, given all the churches available, do they attend this one? Is it possible that there are no real members, and that some people attend a few times just to hear this lunatic for themselves?

Actually, I think there are a whole lot of people who would agree with this guy, but would not admit it publicly.

He can just pisseth off, as far as I’m concerned … :-)

This seems to be exploding on to every blog. The interesting thing about all six of the passages referred to, is that God will DESTROY “him that pisseth against the wall”. On the surface, this is just a colorful old English way of referring to the male of the species. However, according to one commentator, it is a word for word translation of the Hebrew with the contemptuous implication that those who will be destroyed are nothing more than mongrel male dogs that lift their leg to piss against the walls.

Again, Anderson gives us ample proof of the extent of his ‘education’.

Also, and somewhat off topic, one comment says that urologists now have concluded that the sitting position is conducive to prostate health. Now you’ve got to choose between ‘being a man’ and developing a virulent cancer.

Well by my urination habits I guess I’m a “real man” in this nutjob’s eyes, but alas this makes me worthy of destruction in God’s. *sigh*…

This guy must have a maid clean his toilet! or a wimpy wife! He probably doesn’t even lift the seat!
What an A-hole …

BTW, god did not write anything in the bible. The words in the bible were words of men.

No man in Germany pees standing up?

Not from what I’ve seen, and my husband is German. Maybe, from what he’s saying, he’s never seen a man peeing standing up. Is that because neither glory holes nor peep holes are rarely at eye level? Inquiring minds want to know.

By the way, here is Mark Twain on that very subject: http://books.google.com/books?id=RHoQ1hPuUt4C&pg=PA51&lpg=PA51&dq=%22mark+twain%22+%22pisseth%22&source=bl&ots=BFx8aB7t7H&sig=hOuNQLczF5PmZ2DneUkb-duMKFA&hl=en&ei=rxCbSqjGCYXasQPKkICTDg&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=4#v=onepage&q=&f=false

“They had a sign that prohibited a man from peeing standing up […] I thought it was a joke.”

No, it’s not a joke. The joke is standing behind the podium.

Someone please tell him that smoking crack is highly addictive. Hopefully, there are local rehab clinics in Arizona.

i don’t only think that this man is a closeted gay but I also think that he has a golden shower fetish.

*sigh* I’m getting old, I sit down….. so sue me….

Richard W. Fitch said: “…according to one commentator, it is a word for word translation of the Hebrew with the contemptuous implication that those who will be destroyed are nothing more than mongrel male dogs that lift their leg to piss against the walls.”

It might be well worth remembering that in the middle east among speakers of Arabic to call a person a ‘dog’ is to label them a sodomite/homosexual.

This idiot has misunderstood the signs in the public loos in Germany. I don’t know why, because I’ve never found them difficult to understand. They don’t apply to the urinals, where everyone is welcome to urinate standing up – indeed no other position is possible at the urinals. They apply to the cubicles, and the reason is obvious: that they’re fed up to the back teeth with men weeing on the toilet seats and on the floor, and who can blame them?

This guy is a frothing nutjob. I find it nothing less than incredible that anyone turns up to listen to his deranged “preaching”! Just goes to show just how credulous people can be, and the scariest thing is that these people are permitted to vote and breed!

Well, even a broken clock is right twice a day. Many children boys who turn out to be transgender only pee sitting down.

These kinds of Anderson-people like to use salty language in their piety and look for reasons to vent using “god’s word” as an excuse. He’s claiming all German men aren’t men because of a public-health sign that helps keep public places cleaner? He can’t understand this. Public highways reststops in the USA are more manly by Anderson’s standards; they’re filthy just like his mind.

“Gays-are-worse-than-terrorists” Sally Kern’s husband in his church preaching at Olivet Baptist in Oklahoma City also likes to use a bible passage that he claims is translated to mean that temple prostitutes fornicate like dogs.
He really milks that for all it’s worth.

Empty head with big mouth preaching to an empty musical organ showroom. This guy is a friggin’ idiot and if there was a god, I’m sure it would be embarrassed by this idiot speaking on it’s behalf.

Wow, How uneducated can he be. He really should not speak about things he is uneducated about. This guy is just spreading hate and when Jesus looks at him he will say Who are you?. I really believe he is getting off on telling men how to be men. He is in the closet. Self -hating closeted homosexual.

Priya Lynn

According to the biblical passage he quoted and his interpretation of it God’s going to kill those men who pee standing up. Peeing standing up’s a bad thing.

Alex

What’s even more disturbing about this is that Anderson and his wife are raising five young children. Imagine what kind of psychological abuse goes on during potty-training, particularly toward the boys.

Ya means in Germany they let ya pee in them fancy wall-fountains? Buncha deviates. They must all be sodomites.

Wasn’t this video doing the rounds about a year ago?

Pastor Anderson has been mentioned a few times recently on Pharyngula. Some of his relatives are almost worse. (I forget whether that’s his wife or his sister-in-law.)

What about all the guys who can’t pee standing up, like those in wheelchairs are they relegated to the class of non standing pee er’s such as women?? Or do they have divine dispensation…funny the bible doesn’t seem to mention anything about it.

I think he has mistaken the pulpit lectern for a urinal!

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.

Testing The Premise: Are Gays A Threat To Our Children?

Anti-gay activists often charge that gay men and women pose a threat to children. In this report, we explore the supposed connection between homosexuality and child sexual abuse, the conclusions reached by the most knowledgeable professionals in the field, and how anti-gay activists continue to ignore their findings. This has tremendous consequences, not just for gay men and women, but more importantly for the safety of all our children.

Straight From The Source: What the “Dutch Study” Really Says About Gay Couples

Anti-gay activists often cite the “Dutch Study” to claim that gay unions last only about 1½ years and that the these men have an average of eight additional partners per year outside of their steady relationship. In this report, we will take you step by step into the study to see whether the claims are true.
