A church pastor who has referred to homosexuality as part of the “darkness” (alongside mass murders and terror attacks) won a local government award for “outstanding contributions” to the community. He served in the church’s helm for more than 5 years and throughout all this period he continued to brand homosexuality as a sin. And recently pastor Olawore handed an award at the ceremony in March, for “activities and initiatives which support the local community and beyond”. This also meant he was included in the “extraordinary people who have made outstanding contributions to the Royal Borough of Greenwich”. New Wine Church was founded by Tayo Adeyemi, who has called homosexuality “a warped sexual identity” which causes tearing many families down. And now he church played host to Enoch Adeboye, a pastor who has referred to homosexuality as an “evil” which will destroy humankind, local news site 853 has reported. Speaking in 2013, he said: “How can a man who marries a fellow man produces a child and how can a woman who marries a woman produces a child? “If this evil is allowed to stay, there will not be new born babies again in the world.” In his first essay since taking up his role as pastor, Olawore included homosexuality and gay marriage alongside poverty, war and terrorism in a list of things which made up our “world of darkness”.
