CONTROVERSIAL: Pastor Steven Anderson

Malawi becomes the third African country to ban Pastor Steven Anderson

Hate speech American Pastor Steven Anderson and his Faithful Word Baptist have been kicked out of Malawi as well.

This is the third African country that has banned Anderson.

On September 13, Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba banned Anderson from entering South Africa for his Soul Winning crusade.

The controversial holy man hit the headlines after the June 12 massacre at a gay club in Orlando, USA, when he reportedly told his congregation: “There are now 50 less paedophiles in this world.”

In a series of videos he posted online, he also said of Mzansi: “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.”

After being banned from SA, Anderson tried his luck in Botswana, but was stopped from setting up a church there.

And this week the Malawian government said it also doesn’t want the Faithful Word Baptist Church in their country.

Government spokesperson Malison Ndau said: “If he is coming to push for his ideologies then we are not going to allow that. The ideologies are against human rights, which the Government of Malawi respects.”

In Malawi, gay people face a penalty of up to 14 years in jail if found to be in a same sex relationship. Human rights activists have challenged this law in court but a decision has yet to been taken to change the legislation.
