Calls for pastor who celebrated Orlando massacre to be banned from Ireland

04/09/2019 | Pink News

A petition has been signed almost 5,000 times calling for anti-LGBT+ pastor Steven Anderson to be banned from entering Ireland. Anderson—a preacher with the Faithful Word Baptist Church in the United States—is due to preach in Dublin on May 26, according to his online schedule. “Steven Anderson is a Holocaust-denier, Islamophobe and anti-LGBT+ extremist who is scheduled to preach in Dublin, Ireland on May 26, 2019,” the petition says. They note that his appearance in the Republic of Ireland could be due to the country’s landslide vote of last year in which they legalised abortion. “This petition is for the people to show that they want Pastor Steven Anderson banned from entering the Republic of Ireland.” One person who signed the petition commented: “This man is a clear and present danger to the LGBT community worldwide. He advocate[s] full blown militancy and violence to the LGBT [community].”
