“I would like to make a plea to churches too say it out loud; Homosexuality is not allowed, Homosexuality is a sin."

Somizi speaks up after a Homophobic encounter at Grace Bible church After attending a sermon at Grace Bible church in Soweto, choreographer and Idols judge Somizi Mhlongo shared a video on how he stormed out of church with rage after a guest pastor who attended the church threw insults at the LGBTQ community. “I am a gay man, my soul is alright with my God,” said Somizi. “I am disappointed at the gay men and women who sat there and listened to him offending us,” he added.

No opinion or advice needed. I'm just venting. @grace_bible_church

Somizi went on to say that If churches were uncomfortable with having Gay people attend their churches then they need to come clean in order for gay people to find alternative places of worship. “I would like to make a plea to churches too say it out loud; Homosexuality is not allowed, Homosexuality is a sin. Gay people must not come to our church so that we can find other places where we can deal with our God.”

Despite the LGBTQ community still facing discrimination, the South African constitution states that the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people have the same rights as Heterosexual people in South Africa.
