Homosexuality is responsible for devastating South Africa wildfires
A paramedic in South Africa has said that raging fires in the Western Cape are god’s wrath because 12 gay couples got married during the 2016 LGBTI Pride festival.
Bossie Boshoff (not his birth name) posted on Facebook, asking if anyone remembered when Knysna was dressed in pink last year and “12 homosexual weddings on one day” took place at the annual Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Arts Festival.
“It was just after the elections of the Dutch Reformed Church, in which homosexual marriage was approved. It was all over the newspapers… God was taunted with it… They should not cry about the fires now… God won’t allow himself to be made a fool of!,” wrote Boshoff.
Netcare 911 confirmed that Boshoff, an intermediate life support (ILS) paramedic, had been suspended, without mentioning his first name.
In a statement, Netcare 911 MD Craig Grindell said that the company distanced itself from the “paramedic’s unacceptable comments”.
Grindell added that Netcare 911’s thoughts are with the communities of Knysna, Plettenburg Bay and the Garden Route in their time of crisis and he extended his deepest condolences to the families who had lost loved ones in the devastating fires.
Boshoff has since deactivated his Facebook account, but not before someone managed to grab a screenshot of his status, which was sent to News24.
The devastating fires in Knysna have claimed the lives of six people and displaced more than 10,000 people. Among the dead are a firefighter and a three-year-old child.
