Thousands of people have signed a petition to ban pastor Steven Anderson from preaching in Jamaica due to his radical homophobic views. In the petition Anderson is described as “an American hate preacher who has been banned from several countries, including Canada, UK, Botswana and South Africa. He is scheduled to arrive on the island on January 29, 2018.” 4,160 people have signed the Change.org petition. These are the messages that Pastor Anderson is bringing to Jamaica. He approves of terrorism, the action that the Government of Jamaica condemned in response to the Orlando Massacre. Clearly the Pastor has no respect for humanity and his messages go against our democratic ideals and our motto, ‘Out of many, one people’,” the petition reads, accusing the pastor of misogyny as he disrespected women in his preaches saying they should not work. “We the People, are asking the Jamaican Government to show leadership and stand as an example to fellow Caribbean countries to denounce terrorism and violence against marginalized groups,” the petition concludes.
