‘Anal sex is an abomination’ says River of Love head pastor

'Anal sex is an abomination' says River of Love head pastor
Feb 21 2023 Share

Speaking during a River of Love sermon on the 18th of February, head pastor Gordon Manche, whilst discussing sex and marriage, said that ‘anal sex is an abomination.’

‘It is not just a sin, but an abomination’ he said, going on to claim that it introduces demonic forces into one’s life. He went on to claim that this practice is an abomination both in heterosexual couples as it is in homosexual couples.

Manche went on to question who could teach this to people, also saying that the likes of Education Minister would not teach people about this. 

‘God wants his people to be educated. Who do you think will teach you this? The education minister’ said Manche. 

‘Anal sex is a sin, it is demonic and it will enter a curse in your life’ he continued. 

Earlier in the broadcasted sermon titled ’No, God did not make you that way’, Manche says that God did not make a person a fornicator, but the person would still fornicate. 

In defining what a ‘fornicator’ is, Manche points to it as any sexual act involving two men.’ Manche has received criticism in the past for his statements, which many deemed to be homophobic.

MaltaDaily does not condone claims made by Manche in any way shape or form.

The rescued sign instantly became a symbol of hope amid the tragic catastrophe, having survived with minor injuries and accompanying the rescuer by standing on his shoulder. 

Rubble went on to become viral after the team noticed he stuck around and never leaving Ali’s side. Ali even decided to adopt the cat and take him home, making him the mascot of the Mardin Fire Department.
