Anti-LGBTQ+ Preachers Warn Beer Is Bad Because It Makes Men 'More Feminine' In Unhinged VideosHate
Two anti-LGBTQ+ preachers are warning their male followers drinking beer is bad because it makes men "more feminine."
In entirely separate sermons, founder of the New Independent Fundamentalist Baptist movement Steven Anderson—who is pastor at the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona—and Jonathan Shelley of the Stedfast Baptist Church in Watauga, Texas, alleged in videos posted to Twitter that men risk feminization if they drink beer.
The two men appeared to draw from online misinformation claiming hoppier beers cause sexual problems in men and disrupt their hormones even though the amount of phytoestrogen—a plant chemical that imitates actual estrogen—in them is negligible.
You can hear what Anderson said in the video below, shared by Hemant Mehta on Twitter:
“People who drink a lot of alcohol, they end up getting a beer belly. But not only do they get a beer belly, they get the man-boobs."
“And I’ll tell you why they get that, not only just because of getting overweight, but also because of the fact that beer has in it hops and there are phytoestrogen mimickers in beer that actually hormonally can, you know, make you more feminine as a man."
"So, the reverse of being so manly because you drink so much alcohol, in fact drinking beer specifically can actually give you more feminine features to your body and cause you to, you know, yeah, like I said.”
You can hear what Shelley said in the video below.
“I hate alcohol. It causes so much adultery and infidelity. It causes abuse."
"It makes men just become stupid losers and effeminate. Hey, let me tell you something: Beer makes you effeminate. The hops in it will feminize you."
Footage of the two sermons went viral, exposing the men to heavy mockery online.
Anderson previously made headlines for advocating for the death penalty for homosexuals, a statement documented by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)—a legal advocacy organization known for its legal cases against white supremacist groups, for its classification of hate groups and other extremist organizations and for promoting tolerance education programs.
Anderson—a known antisemite who argued the anticipated Jewish messiah is the Antichrist and the Talmud is blasphemous—was banned from many countries including Canada, The Netherlands, South Africa and the United Kingdom.
Shelley has been criticized for his extreme anti-LGBTQ+ views more than once, including when he claimed during a sermon gay men are “causing themselves all kinds of problems" like allowing their intestines to "just fall out because of the actions that they do."
Shelley was mocked online after he said he would rather "eat Indian food and ranch dressing" every single day than have gay sex.
Anti-hate groups condemned Shelley last year after he declared LGBTQ+ people should be executed because "God has already ruled that murder, adultery, witchcraft, rape, bestiality and homosexuality are crimes worthy of capital punishment.”
John Bellamy - as usual - has a response.
Of all the wrong doing taking place on this planet.
Of all the evil taking place.
Putin mass murdering innocent men, women and children in his war.
Mass starvation in Africa and to be honest, I actually do not know where to start with what and how these bigots could concentrate their attention on something that is REALLY affecting people, like Covid - like water shortages in Africa, mass starvation within America of the poor - the homeless - lying politicians like Trump - Bigots - white supremists - anti abortionists - Immigration - Taxes - and the fucking list goes on and on and yet laughingly they concentrate on where another man sticks his dick - whose hole it is going into -WHICH hole it is going into - and to be honest, these men HAVE GOT TO BE CLOSET QUEERS - ( note I do not call then gay as these men would be a disgrace to any self respecting gay community, suffice to say, I consider them QUEER and to me, anyone who is queer, is NOT part of the LGBT community, despite what some claim... ) and these men are simply -
DYING TO SUCK A COCK, -
DYING TO GET FUCKED IN THEIR SHITTER -
AND DYING FOR THE ATTENTION OF ANOTHER MAN -
FOR SOME MAN TO MAN ACTION -
otherwise why are they so scared - so absolutely petrified - shitting themselves at the very thought of men to an action - why is it so centre brain for them - why does it muster so much emotional energy of hate and why do they even think about what another man is doing when there is so much more important things to be concentrating on.
Their very congregation is made up of men and women, children young and old, and how does this ranting affect the parishioners who simply want to hear about the love of God - the acceptance of Jesus and the understanding that God loves every one of us - when the priest himself is a racist, bigoted homophobe who does not hide the fact and uses Biblical writings to deny that God is unconditionally loving and denies the very truth of what the bible tells us about our God being an all forgiving and loving God, but it seems his representatives on this planet, or at least those who CLAIM to be doing God's work, when in fact, God would be ashamed, horrified at how these bigots were representing His / Her words with such hatred and bile.
That is not very Christian.
That is not very Godly.
That is so unenlightened.
The truth is - The original Bible writings - nowhere - found fault with gay men or man to man sex at all and those claiming it does, are lying to you. PERIOD.
The Bible also states you should not eat rabbit and pork, lobster and crab - yet millions of bigots and so called Christians eat and drink and fornicate against God's will and written word and ignore that, but when it comes to them gays - ooooo those disgusting heathen perverts destroying the vey fabric of any decent society - agendas to steal our children and turn them gay - trannies corrupting and making little boys want to dress up in girlie clothes - while all the time it is the straights that are the vast majority of child abusers, rapists, murderers, and nothing is said and nothing done while it is ' them gays' that are the cause of all the worlds problems so, lets destroy all them gays and then we can see after that who else to pick on...
So much for the love of God then ? God loves us ALL unconditionally.
It is man who is the small minded bigot and not the word of God at all.
