Controversial Pastor Oscar Bougardt says he is being victimised by the LGBTI community after he was served yet again with a court order from the Human Rights Commission (HRC).
Bougardt was served with the High Court order on Sunday and on Monday went to court to oppose it.
He says the court order comes after he recently invited missionaries linked to controversial Arizona Pastor Steven Anderson to South Africa.
Anderson was banned from entering the country by the Department of Home Affairs due to his hate speech against gays.
“This started when I brought a team of missionaries over on a soul-winning campaign.
“They were here from 16 to 25 October.
“While doing the campaign, 134 people in Delft gave their hearts to the Lord and not one homosexual or lesbian was injured or harmed,” Bougardt says.
The new order brought forth by the HRC demands Bougardt refrains from associating with Anderson, do not speak out about the LGBTI community at all, and wants him to be locked up for 30 days for contravening a previous order.
“Nothing I said has violated a court order. What I said I quoted from scripture. I feel like I’m being victimised,” the holy man says.
“If they want me to stop preaching against homosexuality then they don’t want me to preach the whole Bible.
“I also preach against abortion, rapists, murderers and the Bible states homosexuality is an abomination to God.
“Even if I have to go sit in jail, I’ll go sit. I didn’t say anything negative,” Bougardt says.
He says he also ran into HRC chairman, Chris Nissen, who invited him for a meeting.
“I got him as I was coming from court opposing this motion against me. Nissen suggested we have a meeting later this week with the HRC and I agreed.
“I just hope this matter can be solved amicably,” Bougardt adds.
Bougardt previously faced charges of hate speech over homophobic remarks he made on social media.
In May last year, he was slapped with a five-year suspended sentence of 30 days.
