Stop Steven Anderson from Promoting Hate Speech in South Africa
This petition made change with 7,619 supporters!
A so-called "pastor" by the name of Steven Anderson is coming to South Africa on a "Soulwinning" mission.
He is a well-known spewer of hate speech against specifically the LGBTI community as this article attests to.
Southern Law Poverty Center deemed Anderson and his church, Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, AZ, a hate group. Also, the Secret Service was out to Anderson's house to question him because he and his church prayed for Obama's death.
He is coming to Kempton Park to bring his unique brand of hate to South Africa, and this cannot be tolerated or allowed as LGBTI rights are protected by the Constitution, and there is already enough homophobia the flames of which do not need fanning.
This is not a petition against Christianity, but against using Christianity as an excuse to call for the death of a certain sector of society and to spread a message of hate and intolerance.
We are calling on the Department of Home Affairs to stop him from promoting hate speech, as well as all South African business to refuse this man and his team service when they visit on 17 & 18 September 2016.
We are calling on South African business to follow the example of Growth Point, Spur, Wimpy and Premier Hotel OR Tambo who have already expressed solidarity with the Constitution and the LGBTI community, so that we can stop the spread of hate and rather promote love, tolerance and understanding.
GaySA Radio is taking the lead on this and asking everybody who stands for peace and love to sign this petition. We are calling on all LGBTI organisations as well as Human Rights Organisations, as well as the South African public at large and the international community to show their support.
