Finally nailed! The lying Paul Shinners
EVER since he returned to the UK in January last year after travelling to Uganda in 2012 to urge local politicians and church leaders to support a proposed “Kill the Gays” Bill, Paul Shinners, evangelist, “healer”, Christian café owner, charity boss and consummate liar has denied ever promoting an anti-homosexual agenda in that country.
He immediately played the victim card after his presence in Uganda, and the hate message he conveyed to those attending a religious rally organised by David Kiganda, was exposed by the Freethinker, and by bloggers Melanie Nathan in San Francisco and Daniel Law in the UK.
He accused us all of defamation, and – via a local newspaper – demanded an apology. He said he was being unfairly pilloried, and that his Cornerstone Café in St Neots had suffered as a result of the allegations made against him.
According to this Christian blog:
Despite a lack of evidence to support allegations of homophobia made against Paul Shinners of Cornerstone, St Neots, bloggers in the UK, Spain and the USA have continued with their campaign against him, leading to further business disruptions.
Instead of apologising, the bloggers see their campaign as justified and have continued to post increasingly aggressive demands for explanations along with accusations of lying and, most recently, supposed “proof” in support of their allegations.
Rather than allow himself to be goaded or drawn further into what appears to be an ever more acrimonious campaign, however, Paul has responded with a simple, ‘God bless you’, a response that has been greeted with open contempt by the bloggers.
Well, after months of investigation, Law – who was assaulted at a demo outside the café – has finally turned up footage that vindicates all our reports.
Said Law on his blog this week:
He made many efforts to eradicate all evidence of what he said in Uganda. All of David Kiganda’s events are recorded and available to be purchased with the exception of the event Paul Shinners spoke at. He had successfully had the recording removed from most data sources in Uganda for ‘security reasons’.
That is why it took so long to come to light, but I have finally managed to acquire a recording. Here is an edited version of what was said by this evil, deceitful man …
On his own blog, following our reports, Shinners said:
The purpose of my visit on the 31st December 2012 to The 7th National Day of Prayer in Uganda was simply to preach the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which I did. This event is a New Year’s celebration for Christians and non Christians alike. It is NOT an anti-gay rally as has been wrongly stated on Facebook. I am NOT HOMOPHOBIC. Never have been. Never will. I have NEVER ever made any homophobic comments. As Christians we follow the commands which Jesus taught, to LOVE GOD AND LOVE PEOPLE.
That means ALL PEOPLE, irrespective of race, colour or sexuality. I do not and will not support any legislation or law which condemns anyone on the basis of the above criteria. However, it is also not right to slander or demonise Christians on Facebook. I would ask that people respect my staff and customers at Cornerstone. We had to close the shop on Saturday 5th January as they were frightened to come in. This is not right. I hope that this clarifies our position.
In the light of this latest damning evidence will the Charity Commission strip Shinners’ charity, Passion for Souls, of its charitable status?
