‘General Overseer’ of the Redeemed Christian Church of God pastor Enoch Adeboye is touring Pacific nations in November, hoping to plant branches of his anti-LGBT church across the region.
Adeboye’s Let the Wind Blow tour will take him to Canberra, Melbourne, Auckland, Suva, Port Moresby, Perth, Sydney and the Solomon Islands capital Honiara.
Adeboye made headlines in Nigeria earlier this year when he claimed same-sex marriages would lead to the end of the human race.
‘Same-sex marriage is an anathema to the will of God for human beings to be fruitful, replenish and multiply on earth – anything contrary to that is evil,’ Adeboye told a gathering at Obafemi Awolowo University in January.
‘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?
‘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.’
Adeboye sent pastor Abraham Adewole Haastrup to Australia to set up a church in Melbourne and he is hosting Adeboye’s Australian tour.
A set of ‘prophesies’ for the year 2012 posted on the Redeemed Christian Church of God website predicted ‘an end to premature death.’
‘Desperate prayers will get quick reply this year … some will experience massive transfer of wealth from the wicked to the just.’
