An evangelical pastor set to rally alongside Kanye West will lead a gay cure march.
Kanye West has faced anger from fans over his plans to appear alongside a plethora of anti-LGBT+ hate preachers at a prayer rally in Tempe, Arizona, this weekend.
One of the key organisers of the event, the preacher Lou Engle, is also promoting the discredited idea the homosexuality can be cured
Engle is set to be guest of honour at the so-called ‘Freedom March’ in Boston, Massachussets, on April 18.
New evangelical friend of Kanye West will headline a gay ‘cure’ march.
Freedom March announced on Monday: “We honour Lou Engle and all he has accomplished in the body of Christ.
“For years he has been a guiding light standing up for truth, righteousness, and justice. It is so nice to have a general of God boldly step forward to partner with us!”
In a video, Engle said that God had told him in a dream to take part in the gay cure march.
He said: “The beginning of this year, I was praying, fasting, and I had a dream. This ticker tape line said, ‘You said you would deliver us.’ And then it said, ‘4/18.’ I woke up and I could hear the cries of those yearning for freedom from sexual brokenness.
“It seems like there’s no answer, but there is… we’re going to ride for freedom and bring all that long for freedom… God is coming.”
The American Medical Association recently backed efforts to legally ban the discredited practise of gay ‘cure’ therapy in all 50 states.
Practising conversion therapy on minors is still legal in 32 US states, while no states have banned it for adults.
