Somizi Mhlongo slams Grace Bible Church over homophobic sermon

JOHANNESBURG - Media personality Somizi Mhlongo has called on churches to openly pronounce whether they are against homosexuality following what he says were homophobic comments at his church.

Mhlongo posted a video on his social media account on Sunday after a pastor at the Grace Bible Church in Soweto said that animals don't have same-sex partners, saying its 'unnatural' for humans too.

No opinion or advice needed. I'm just venting. @grace_bible_church

He left the church service on Sunday after Bishop Dag Heward-Mills made the comments on Sunday, and took to social media saying he was deeply offended.

“The church was cheering. I am not going to sit there and listen to someone offend me. This is who I am. I am a gay man, get it straight into your skull. My soul is alright with my God.”

The church has come under fire on social media for comments made by Heward.

The sermon has since been published on YouTube, which has sparked outrage and debate on Twitter.
