Botswana is not known for being accepting of LGBT people, but Baptist minister Steven Anderson proved to be too much for the African nation. Yesterday, the government arrested and deported the hatemonger for saying LGBT people should be killed.

The twisted preacher has previously been banned by South Africa and the United Kingdom for his hate speech against LGBT people.

Anderson hit the national news following the mass shooting at an Orlando gay nightclub when he praised the shooter for killing gay men.

“The good news is that there’s 50 less pedophiles in this world, because, you know, these homosexuals are a bunch of disgusting perverts and pedophiles,” Anderson said at the time.

During a radio interview on Tuesday, he continued his hate-filled “ministry,” telling listeners the club was full of “disgusting homosexuals who the Bible says were worthy of death.” He also called for adulterers and pedophiles to be put to death and said women shouldn’t be allowed to preach in churches.

“He was picked up at the radio station. I said they should pick him up and show him out of the country,” Botswana’s President, Ian Khama, said yesterday. “We don’t want hate speech in this country. Let him do it in his own country.”

Now audio of the interview that got the notorious pastor thrown out. Listen below.
