Steven Anderson is also the same guy who did this wonderful bit applying the phrase "pisseth against a wall" to today's culture.  Word is that janitors in Tempe hate his guts!  (just kidding on that last bit) (I think)  Suffice it to say that KJVO is one of the milder things he's been involved in, which "charmingly" includes apparent fights with ICE and Holocaust denial.   

That noted, I think Brandenburg needs to temper his rhetoric a bit to be effective.  The trick is that Anderson thrives on shock value, and the way to counter that is to tone down the rhetoric and get people to think about what they're signing up for, not to fight fire with fire.  At least that's my view.

My guess is that Brandenburg addressed the Anderson heresy because:

  • The KJVOnliers get lumped together. Anderson is the crazy, over-the-top, beyond Sam Gipp KJVO, while Brandenburg is sane, well-thought out KJVO. But to many non-KJVOnly ... they are one and the same
  • As a pastor in California (didn't Anderson come from CA?), he probably gets asked about him

Having fled a church where the pastor successfully hid his "wannabe KJVO" and "wannabe Trail of Blood" tendencies for about a year from my family, Larry's link has a good point.  They're not frothing at the mouth, but they're hoping they can slide the heresy past you before you can notice.
