US pastor calls Archbishop Tutu 'perverted' over pro-gay views

UPDATE: Gay-bashing US pastor banned from entering SA

Controversial United States Pastor Steven Anderson has lambasted Archbishop Desmond Tutu for his pro-gay views and stance on equal rights.

Anderson says that religious leaders like Archbishop Tutu believe in a Jesus Christ that is a figment of their imagination.

People like Desmond Tutu can go parading around and talk about their pro-homosexual beliefs, but they did not get that from the Bible.

The religious leaders you are talking about are a bunch of perverts themselves, like that Desmond Tutu who goes around in a pink dress.

There's a huge difference from being a so-called Christian leader and being an actual bible believing Christian.

The bible is crystal clear... These people are worthy of death anyway.

He maintains that homosexuality should be illegal and punishable by death, and has also called US President Barack Obama a mass murder who deserves to die of natural causes because of his pro-choice legislation.

Home Affairs officials have not been able to legally prohibit Anderson from entering the country later this month, despite an uproar from the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LBGTI) community.

However, government says they will keep a close eye on Anderson to ensure that he does not contravene the Constitution.

Anderson says he will be in South Africa purely on a evangelical campaign with his followers and not to preach his controversial views.

Pastor Steven Anderson is a Pastor at the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona.
