Adam Fannin, Pastor at Stedfast Jacksonville Church in Florida, can be seen in a video in which he rails against comedian Sarah Silverman—in the clip he refers to her as a “God-hating whore” and openly says he hopes for her death.
Silverman tweeted out the video of Fannin’s hateful speech:
This is Adam Fannin of the Stedfast Baptist Church in Florida and he is going to get me killed. pic.twitter.com/I6Us59o59v— Sarah Silverman (@SarahKSilverman) August 8, 2019
Have you heard of this comedian, Sarah Silverman?” Fannin starts off. “You guys know what I’m talking about? She brags about it! ‘I’d do it again!’ Listen, she is a witch. She is a jezebel. She is a God-hating whore of Zionism. I hope that God breaks her teeth out and she dies. She is a wicked person and she is, like, the perfect representation of religious Judaism … I pray that God would give her an untimely death, and it would be evident that it’s at the hand of God …
In the video, Fannin is referring to a 2005 comedy special from Silverman called Jesus is Magic, in which she made a joke about Jews killing Jesus.
Perhaps even more concerning is the audience reaction to Fannin—he isn’t met with anything other than what seems like quiet acceptance.
