Nigerian pastor, Johnson Suleman will be preaching in Calgary at a local Omega Fire Ministries church on 18 and 19 September.
But an LGBT group is warning Canadian authorities about the alleged dangers of letting Johnson Suleman visit their country.
LGBT is an initialism that stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender.
Dignity Network, an LGBT advocacy group operating globally, penned an open letter to the Canadian Minister of Border Security and Organized Crime Reduction, Bill Blair.
Reverend Jide Macaulay, one of their international partners from Nigeria, has advised the group of the upcoming visit.
‘Our network is deeply concerned that Suleman’s visit to Canada will provide him a space to promote and incite hatred against both LGBTI people and Muslims here in Canada,’ they wrote.
Furthermore, they add: ‘We are asking the federal government immediately to ensure that he does not come to Canada and if he is already in Canada to use means to expedite his departure.’
The group described Suleman as a preacher with strong anti-LGBTI views, alleging that in a previous visit, Suleman said homosexuality is the result of having demons from the pit of hell inside.
The group also alleged that he said people need to ‘kill the spirit of homosexuality in the name of Jesus’.
