Stop Anderson promoting hate speech in South Africa

Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba has responded to our campaign, and announced that Steve Anderson will be banned from entry into South Africa! Read more here:

The so-called "Pastor" Steven Anderson has spouted vile hate against members of the LGBTQI community, and hailed the Orlando Massacre as "Good news" [1].

We call on Home Affairs and other government authorities to stop Steven Anderson from being allowed into South Africa, and reject any VISA or work permit he may require. We also call on South African businesses to follow the example of Wimpy, Spur, Growth Point and Premier Hotel OR Tambo to refuse to provide Steve Anderson and his team service during his visit on the 17th and 18th September 2016.


Why is this important?

Steven Anderson 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.

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.
