Campus Crusade for Christ Evangelization and Homophobic Mission in Africa

On January 1st 2013, Campus Crusade for Christ sponsored an evangelism conference in Lagos, Nigeria on the theme of ‘a new generation for a new Africa’ for more than 300 students and young professionals from all over the continent. At the event, Dr. Seyoum Antonios, the head of United for Life Ethiopia, incited the crowd to a frenzy, shouting multiple times that “Africa will become a graveyard for homosexuality!”

Dr. Seyoum Antonios is currently leading an effort to institute a death penalty for homosexuality in Ethiopia, one of the guys who lead the conference and introduced Dr. Seyoum was another Ethiopian Bekele Shanko, who is the vice president of global church movements for campus crusade for Christ. They invited Dr. Seyoum to speak even though it was widely known that he led a movement to legislate the death penalty for LGBT people in Ethiopia. Campus Crusade for Christ has an annual budget of over $500 million dollars per year, and it is one of the biggest Evangelical ministries on earth.
