Log in:
The Jesus is Savior website is essentially the same as the Internet Church for Christ if it were created by a furious schizophrenic. There are so many fonts, photos and hate-filled, incongruous pieces of information on the homepage that at a certain point the human eye just gives up and stares into the vast expanse of the background. The only unifying theme of the site seems to be contempt and a psychotic distrust of literally everything.
—Soren Bowie, Cracked[1]

Jesus-is-savior.com is a nutty Jack Chick-style (probably nuttier, if you can imagine such a thing[2]) fundamentalist Christian website run by Guam resident, FSTDT favourite and Gilligan lookalike David J. Stewart, who according to his bio is a fundie from a long line of fundies. Stewart himself is a supporter of Jack Hyles, and graduate of the Hyles-Anderson College[3].

His website promotes extremist fundie ideologies and conspiracy theories such as King James-onlyism, Anti-Catholicism, anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism, and the evils of rock and pop music artists like Boston, Michael Jackson, the Backstreet Boys, and even Christian rock[4] and country music[5], among other ideas. "Oprah is the Most Dangerous Woman in the World!" because she is a New Ager.[6] The most dangerous soul-destroying television show ever is apparently Hee Haw.[7]

Like most fundies, Stewart utterly lacks a sense of humor. He whines constantly about the old joke that "the Devil has the best music", taking it as a completely serious slight against his religion, and using it to attack virtually all modern music as "Satanic".

His website also attacks other Christian apologists apparently for not being fundie enough - such as Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron for example, claiming that they are too affiliated with "Satanic" Hollywood, even Martin Luther King Jr is accused of Communism.[8]

Feminism is of course evil, a woman's place is in the home and subservient to her husband. Women are daughters of Eve and are rebelling as Eve did. Feminism, abortion and Lesbianism all mean the same thing. [9] It's even worse than that: Feminism is "mass media control as part of a long-term plan to enslave humanity", because the Rockefellers "want to chip us" and feminism "has women freezing eggs"![10] To hammer home his anti-abortion position, Stewart includes graphic photos of aborted fetuses on the website.

Stewart takes Biblical commandments against cross-dressing rather literally. He has argued repeatedly and at great length against women wearing trousers (or "pants", as he says, resulting in much unintentional hilarity amongst British English-speaking readers)[11] and has also denounced men who wear kilts.[12]

Unsurprisingly, the site also promotes 9/11 conspiracy theories[13], anti-Freemasonry, and New World Order/Illuminati conspiracy theories, and loves to reference Alex Jones, John Todd, John R. Rice, Terry D. Watkins of Dial The Truth Ministries, Mark Dice, Texe Marrs, Henry Makow, Jack Hyles, and of course Jack Chick not anymore[14]. But hey, at least he denounces David Icke[15] (only because David Icke rejects fundamentalist Christianity, unlike most conspiracy theorists) and Harold Camping.[16]

Stewart strongly denies the theory of Darwinian evolution and has an entire section of his website dedicated to "debunking" evolution[17] with links to a variety of crank sources and some sources composed by himself. Stewart even goes to the extent of claiming that the idea of evolution was created by the Illuminati as a justification to bring about global communism and that evolution and Social Darwinism are inseparable[18]. He isn't alone in those ideas, unfortunately. He also strongly denies anthropogenic global warming[19] and views this in the same context as evolution.

Stewart also promotes homeopathy [20]; in support of this, he claims that the pharmaceutical industry is owned by the Rockefellers [21], and that 80% of hospitals are run by Catholics. Stewart also believes in anti-vaccination hysteria[22]; they are apparently also unBiblical. [23]

As it happens, Stewart is horribly afflicted with constant, agonizing spinal pain which has not been cured by any surgeries or his years of fervent prayers. Apparently, God can't be bothered to relieve the suffering of his most hysterical disciple. Either that, or it's actually God's idea of punishment for a truly baleful crime.[24][25]

On August 6, 2013, the owner and the site were suspended. It's back as of August 29, 2013. This may only be temporary, though; what's going on is that a Filipino television station believes that Stewart's domain names are impinging on a couple of its copyrights. Stewart's preparing to move ship to godisprecious.com if his case falls through.

David J. Stewart also runs the website jesusisprecious.org.[26]

David seems to have a hobby of looking for hidden imagery in the most innocent of TV shows.[27]

Television HELLivision is also apparently going to corrupt our children.
