Steven Andrew is actually in the business of selling vanity-published books.A visit to his cheesy website makes that abundantly clear. Every now and then, Mr. Andrew buys some ink by purchasing a press release through Christian Newswire. President Barack Obama’s second inaugural provides Andrew with some fodder.

First the antisemitic stuff:

We repent of all sin. We serve You only. We welcome You to all
government, schools, courts and military. As First Chief Justice John
Jay said we promise to “select and prefer Christians” for our leaders.

John Jay wrote that almost 200 years ago (1816) in a private letter to a Pennsylvania state legislator. Mr. Jay did not speak for God. Moreover, in the same letter Jay wrote:

Real Christians will abstain from violating the rights of others.

These guys always leave out the good stuff. More importantly, in today’s society our leaders are selected by (hopefully) competence. There are Christians, Jews, Muslims and atheists in Congress and throughout our local, state and federal governments. To suggest a preference based on religion is profoundly un-American!

Apparently, Andrew is not pleased with President Obama, writing:

Christians believe that Barack Obama is going against Scripture to
invite homosexual “pastors” to pray and give a “sermon” for the USA.
However, to bring God’s blessings to Americans, Pastor Steven Andrew
gives a Biblical prayer for the USA that George Washington and Abraham Lincoln would approve.

First of all, who the hell is he to suggest that he speaks for all Christians? Secondly, he has absolutely no idea what George Washington and Abraham Lincoln would approve of. Lincoln was a secularist and there is mounting evidence that he was at least bisexual.

Andrew concludes by referring to himself in the first person:

He explains, “Jesus gave the most Christ-like and loving response to
say to homosexuals. He said, ‘Repent and believe in the Gospel.'”

“It’s important to follow Jesus because 1Corinthians 6:9-11 says the
unrepentant don’t go to Heaven. There is no such thing as a homosexual
‘pastor,'” he continues.

Well, if he says it, it must be true. Right?
