The blame for the widespread hatred against gays and other people in same-sex relationships should be laid squarely on God, a pastor has said. According to Pastor Mboro Maseka Mostsoeneng, a big timeSouth African televangelist, God, not pastors, should take the blame for the rejection of same-sex relationships. Motsoeneng, who is the leader of Incredible Happenings Ministries, said the Bible characterizes homosexuality as a sin and the Bible is the word of God.
“People must blame God. Pastors are preaching the Bible. You can’t blame a pastor for the teachings of the Bible,” he was quoted as saying by The Sowetan.
However, Motsoeneng said churches should not impose, fight or condemn homosexuality.
“I accept anyone, whether gay or lesbian. God loves us all, whether we are right or wrong. He wants all people to repent and come to him.
“The truth is: God made a male and a female, but something went wrong along the line. It is our duty to pray about it. They are harmless and most of them are kind people. It is a sin against themselves and God. I see them as people who deserve love and support. I am against people who harm and kill them,” he said.
Mostsoeneng was speaking in defence of Ghanaian preacher, Dag Heward-Mills, who criticised homosexuals during a service at the weekend when he visited South Africa.
