    Arizona Protesters Rally Against Obama-Hating Pastor - ABC News

    About 100 protestersarrived at Tempe's Faithful Word Baptist Church on Sunday to demonstrate against controversial comments from its pastor, Steven L. Anderson.

    The pastor delivered a sermon last month that was entitled, "Why I Hate Barack Obama," and called on his parish to pray for the death of the president.

    Anderson told ABC's affiliate KNXV-TV in Phoenix that he received a phone call from the U.S. Secret Service after that August incident.

    The so-called "Love Rally" outside Anderson's church -- office space wedged between a pawn shop and a salon in a strip mall -- was organized by the People Against Clergy Who Preach Hate.

    "It's hard to believe we could have someone of a religious nature wishing our president was dead," protester William Crumb told the ABC affiliate. <more>

    but it's funny as hell to wish death by kidney failure on Rush Limbaugh. HYPOCRITES.

    No, it is not funny as hell. It's a horrible thing to do.
