Anti-gay pastor is travelling with Harper’s delegation in Israel

The large party accompanying Prime Minister Stephen Harper on his state visit to Israel includes an Ottawa pastor who says that, according to the Bible, homosexuality is wrong, unnatural and a consequence of the wrath of God.

Rev. Shawn Ketcheson, who is described on the website of the Trinity Bible Church of Ottawa as its senior pastor, is among 208 people from a range of civil-society organizations, religious groups and businesses who are part of the Canadian delegation.
