Yip folks, South Africa's own outragous gay hating loony, Pastor Errol Naidoo of the American Far Right sponsored "South Africa’s Family Policy Institute" revealed that his church has secured a television slot, called Watchmen on the Wall. The first episode will be screened by Trinity Broadcasting Network Africa, a Christian television channel (available in South Africa on DSTV), on 4 September.
Recently Errol Naidoo blamed the LGBT community for creating a “culture of death” that led, among other things, to the Marikana mine massacre.
In his latest newsletter, the Cape Town-based Christian leader rails against feminists, gay men and lesbians for perpetuating a “culture of death” that he claims “is slowly killing off the human family in Western civilisation”.
Pator Naidoo wrote: ”Abortion-on-demand – driven by radical feminist activists – and the homosexual agenda, lie at the heart of the culture of death. These anti-family groups are responsible for population decline.”
He also blames said groups for what he refers to as “the rapidly diminishing rights and freedoms of Christians in SA”, “the growing holocaust of abortion on demand”, “teen pregnancies”, and “the Marikana Massacre” in which 34 mine workers protesting over wages and union recognition were killed by police recently.
Clearly our loony Pastor forgets that while Apartheid South Africa might have been a Christian state, The New South Africa is a secular state which explains why he might feel that his rights as a 'Christian' might be diminished.
It is not yet known what the programme’s content will be or if it will espouse Pastor Naidoo’s homophobic agenda but on a dangerously homophobic continent like Africa, should a known hater like Naidoo be given given such a potentially dangerous tool to spread his hate?
Pastor Naidoo’s Family Policy Institute is an avowedly homophobic Christian fundamentalist lobby group mainly sponsored by a Nigerian Christian Group which in turn is being financed by several American far right organisations including the infamous American Family Association. In the past Naidoo has actively sought to repeal marriage equality rights in South Africa.
He has said he believes that homosexuality can be cured through prayer and was quoted by a Nigerian newspaper as publicly saying: “I hate gays. It runs against God’s wishes.”
