An Andersonite is a person of Independent Baptist belief who holds the same beliefs, down to the wire, with Steven Anderson. They are a growing group in the United States, who are trying to take over the country by "soul-winning", which in reality is them telling people they want homosexuals dead and in Hell. The movement was started by Steven Anderson around June 2016, just after the Orlando Shooting, when he celebrated "49 Less Sodomites being alive". It quickly spread to other like-minded Independent Baptist churches such as Verity Baptist Church, Stedfast Baptist Church and Old Paths Baptist Church.
