A controversial Tempe pastor who admits he prays for the President's death got into a heated exchange with a reporter for the Phoenix New Times newspaper Sunday.
Pastor Steven Anderson and Reporter Stephen Lemons got into the argument following Sunday night services outside Anderson's Faithful Word Baptist Church near 48th Street and Southern.
Lemons and Anderson argued after the New Times' reporter began questioning the pastor about his other job, installing commercial fire alarms.
"Are you running a church and business at the same place," asked Lemons.
"I'm not running a church and business at the same place," responded Anderson. "You are trying to make up a story. You're a liar."
"I don't operate a business here," continued Anderson. "I store equipment here." See RAW VIDEO of the argument

Stephen Lemons declares in the comment section that he will come on the Declare Your Independence with Ernest Hancock show after I tore into him.
Source: Phoenix New Times Colmes had Anderson on his radio show Tuesday, specifically to discuss the Bible thumper's "Why I Hate Barack Obama" sermon, wherein he called for the death of our Chief Executive, primarily because Obama supports abortion rights. Colmes has some of this show up on his blog. Anderson has it all up on his YouTube site in four sections, which should tell you how desperate Anderson is for attention, because Colmes makes Anderson sound like an even bigger zealoty-crackpot than he's already proven himself to be on his own time.
In part one, Colmes delves into Anderson's views on homosexuals and homosexuality, and Anderson has to admit that he screwed up in one of his sermons on Massachusetts Representative Barney Frank, whom he called a "faggot," and a "pedophile" who'd been arrested. While Frank is openly gay, he is not a pedophile, nor has he ever been arrested. Anderson said he had Frank co

"I'm crying out for mercy, they are torturing me with tasers again and again," says Pastor Steven Anderson.
This was a graphic description on YouTube.
Pastor Steven Anderson claims he was tortured during a common border patrol stop in Arizona.
Anderson grew up in Sacramento and was active at the Regency Baptist Church. His father who lives in Roseville is outraged over his son's treatment.
"I was appalled they could do that in the U.S.; beat and torture somebody who didn't resist, but just wouldn't let them search his car," says Anderson.
Anderson, who heads a church in Phoenix, was stopped at a boarder patrol check point 75 miles east of Yuma.
Border patrol says a K-9 alerted agents to the car.
Pastor Anderson wrote this poem this morning on a long airplane flight.

The April 14th 2009 Border Patrol and Arizona police beating of a Baptist Minister named Steven Anderson at a border checkpoint, may stand out as one of the most disgraceful recent examples of police brutality and official breech of authority. The supposedly trustworthy state and federal agents appear to have made a game out of how badly they could beat and physically damage and humiliate a person, and while the man's cameras remain confiscated, it was recorded on tape. There are those stories that sometimes are just so grating, so wrong, that they are like an abomination. As stories of torture at the hands of Americans grab the headlines, we are reminded that abuse of power is the ultimate betrayal of a person's character, and it defines the conduct of an agency. The frenzy to increase border scrutiny near Mexico seems to have tensions unusually high, and perhaps that factors in as one of the reasons this man of God was so completely and ruthlessly beaten and degraded
A Baptist minister from the Phoenix, Arizona area, received numerous injuries from police during a dramatic incident April 14th that stemmed from his refusal to submit to what he considered to be, a search of his private property, and a violation of the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. It wouldn't be a stretch to say that Steven Anderson is an American Civil Rights crusader. But in the eyes of some who commented on our earlier story, presumably from the law enforcement community, Civil Rights crusader equates to something short of dirty rotten thug. (Preacher Says he Was Beaten and Tortured by Arizona DPS & Border Patrol Agents - Social Perspective by Tim King Salem-News.com) The Border Patrol agents who initially stopped Anderson's car at the checkpoint in April, reportedly used a drug dog to get a "hit" on his car, which they said warranted his pulling into the secondary inspection area. The Civil Rights minded minister didn't get that far th
