Anti-gay pastor to lead Auckland conference

Wed 9 Oct 2013 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback View at NDHA

Enoch Adeboye believes gay people can't have children, so humanity will end. A Nigerian pastor who believes gay people marrying could end humanity will head a ‘healing’ conference in Auckland next month. “General Overseer” of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Enoch Adeboye is the featured speaker at the event titled Let The Wind Blow, which will be held at Auckland’s Victory Convention Centre on 15 November. Adeboye has dubbed same-sex unions both evil and an “anathema to the will of God” saying they are contrary to being ‘fruitful’, in the sense of going forth and multiplying. “How can a man who marries a fellow man produce a child and how can a woman who marries a fellow woman produce a child?” a statement from the church leader reads. “If this evil is allowed to stay, there will not be newborns again in the world. As the older generation dies, will there be a new generations to succeed it? Even plants and animals have new generations to succeed them.” The local branch of the church will also be involved in next month’s conference, as will pastors from the anti-gay City Impact Church. Adeboye, the majority of whose fellow Nigerians earn less than $NZ2.40 a day, will be arriving in New Zealand in his own Gulfstream 4 private jet. Conference organisers claim anyone with cancer will be healed if they attend.
