- Television preacher Paseka "Mboro" Motsoeneng jumped to defend the bishop who pronounced a sermon against homos*xuals in Soweto.
- Motsoeneng said Pastors are preaching the Bible, and in it is said that homos*xuality is a sin
- The Television preacher also said “God made a male and a female, but something went wrong along the line”
After a bishop from Soweto, in South Africa, pronounced on Sunday a sermon against homos*xuals, the church has been at the center of a social media storm but the scandal has gained power with the statement of the Television preacher Paseka "Mboro" Motsoeneng.
Motsoeneng has jumped to the defense of the bishop Dag Heward-Mills from Seweto who said homos*xuality was unnatural, claiming animals did not have same-s*x partners either.
According to Motsoeneng, who is the leader of Incredible Happenings Ministries, the Bible said homos*xuality is a sin.
Motsoeneng also said Pastors are preaching the Bible so people can't blame a pastor “on the teachings of the Bible” so they “must blame God”
"The truth is: God made a male and a female, but something went wrong along the line. It is our duty to pray about it. They are harmless and most of them are kind people. It is a sin against themselves and God. I see them as people who deserve love and support. I am against people who harm and kill them," he said.
He ventilated his view as controversy broke out over visiting cleric from Ghana, Dag Heward-Mills, who criticised homos*xuals at the Grace Bible Church at the weekend.
Idols SA judges Somizi Mhlongo walked out of the service after the comments were made during a Sunday service.
In septemer 2016 U.S. pastor Steven Anderson was banned from visiting South Africa over his anti-gays views.
Anderson, of the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Arizona, notoriously welcomed the gunning down in June of 50 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida by saying "there's 50 less pedophiles in this world".
After that, South African gay and lesbian groups collected more than 60,000 signatures opposing his visit this weekend, when he was expected to preach and seek converts to his church.
