Anti-gay pastor opens a new US embassy in Jerusalem


Donald Trump is under fire after inviting an extremist pastor who claims gay people are all paedophiles and linked homosexuality to sex with animals to help him with opening a new embassy. Pastor Robert Jeffress, an American Southern Baptist pastor from Texas, was invited to preach at the embassy opening despite his opposition to LGBT. ““Why is there such a high incidence of disease among homosexuals? They are engaged in the most detestable, unclean, abominable acts you can imagine,” he once said, “Because what they are doing is unnatural, it goes against nature, because of that filthy practice; there is a natural result to it. There is natural, physical consequences to homosexual behavior. That’s why God says don’t engage in it, you are going to harm your bodies in doing so.”It is far from his only extreme comment, many of which were recorded for his radio show and are a matter of public record. Disconcertingly given his presence at the event in Israel, Jeffress has also made anti-Mormon, anti-Muslim and anti-Semitic (we emphasize, it was in Israel) comments.
