US pastor Steven Anderson bashes Tutu on gay views
The controversial US pastor has slammed some local religious leaders for supporting homosexuality.
CAPE TOWN - Controversial American pastor Steven Anderson claims any religious leader who accepts homosexuality like Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu is not following the Bible's teachings.
Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba will announce today whether government will allow Anderson to visit South Africa.
Anderson, who's been accused of hate speech towards the LGBTI community, wants to come to the country for what he calls an "evangelical crusade".
LISTEN: US pastor calls Tutu perverted over pro-gay rights.
A petition of over 60,000 signatures has been sent to Gigaba's office calling for Anderson to be denied entry to the country.
Anderson has slammed some local religious leaders for supporting homosexuality.
"People like Desmond Tutu go parading around and talk about their pro-homosexual beliefs but they did not get that from the Bible and any Bible believing Christian will know that."
The controversial US pastor has called out Tutu as well.
"The religious leaders are a bunch of perverts themselves like that Desmond Tutu who goes around in a pink dress."
