Trending Tonight brought up the controversial topic of Pastor Steven Anderson, a hugely vocal anti-gay homophone, who has been granted permission to travel to South Africa. In a recent video on his YouTube channel Pastor Anderson says he is pleased the “sodomites” did not succeed in having him banned. He made reference to the LGBT community and the South African Government coming together to meet over a possible ban. However he has been granted access to tour his “soul winning” campaign.

 

Wimpy and Spur have released statements saying that they do not support his tour and he is not welcome in their establishments as previously arranged.

 

After consulting all parties concerned and taking into account South Africa’s constitution the Department of Home Affairs have granted him access, however they have said he has to “behave” himself otherwise he may be detained and prosecuted.

 

Pastor Steven Anderson has been known for his extreme views on the gay community. After the shooting in a gay nightclub in Florida, Anderson released a statement on his channel saying, “The good news is that there are 50 less paedophiles in this world, because, you know, these homosexuals are a bunch of disgusting perverts and paedophiles," he said. In December 2014 he preached to his many followers that …”if you executed the homosexuals like God recommends, you wouldn’t have all this Aids running rampant.”
