A Labour Councillor is facing calls to resign over social media posts branding Pride marchers ‘evil’.
has been a Labour Councillor on Harrow Council since 2014, and is also an evangelical pastor.
However, questions have been raised over her conduct on social media – where Cllr Amadi has posted anti-LGBT messages without challenge for many years.
In posts this week, she shared a story from anti-LGBT Christian website LifeSiteNews. The story uses a misleading viral photo from seven years ago to claim that Pride parade marchers are ‘traumatising’ little girls with nudity.
Cllr Amadi wrote: “Nothing but paedophilia being labelled liberalism adults polluting children with their senselessness.”
The comments were challenged by LGBT campaigners, but she responded: “Evil. If you dare walk naked in front of my child God will give you terrible assignment that will put you to perpetual sleep. Be warned.”
She added: “Keep off my tweets you are breaching my privacy.”
Responding to critics, she insisted: “You did not vote me in and You cannot remove me. Keep your mouth where your money is. Keep busy and stop nosing around.”
After the chair of LGBT Humanists, Chris Ward, shared her comments, she told him: “I do not talk to expired people. Try me, try my God. Walk naked in front of my child, You will know whether you are normal or not.”
She threatened: “Be warned, if u try to come against me. I have done nothing against u. God will give you terrible assignment that will silence you forever.”
However, it has since emerged that the councillor has a history of unchallenged homophobic comments.
On her public Facebook page last month, Cllr Amadi posted: “Recently one respectable man in my constituency questioned me on my faith especially on homosexuality (…) I warned him not to try me next time.
“Anyone who wants to bring me down from my political career because of my faith and stand on the word of God will encounter the burning anger of the God that I serve.”
When an associate claimed that “Vultures will eat their flesh”, she added: “Amen. Thank you for standing with me and others in that circumstance.”
Another Facebook friend added: “All they know is homosexuality there is nothing else in life apart from that smh”. Cllr Amadi responded with five laughing emojis.
Anti-LGBT posts on her Facebook profile date back many years. In 2013, she shared a post rejecting calls to legalise homosexuality in Gambia, which says: “Homosexuality is anti-humanity. I have never seen homosexual chicken or turkey. If you are convicted of homosexuality in this country, there will be no mercy for offenders. We will put you in the female wing of the prison.”
In 2010 she tweeted: “Are people born gay or is it a choice?”
The Labour Party and Harrow Labour have been approached for comment. We await their press release to say that this backwards minded fool has been fired.. but then again.. this is politics..
