What’s Wrong With America: Too Many Men Pee While Sitting Down

So says Pastor Steven Anderson:

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.

Wow… that’s kinda awful.

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:

August 30th, 2009 | LINK

“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?

August 31st, 2009 | LINK

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.

August 31st, 2009 | LINK

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.

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.

August 31st, 2009 | LINK

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!
