A shocking video has emerged of a pastor at a UK church comparing homosexuality to Nazi propaganda.
In an undercover sting by ITV News, the reporter secretly films himself meeting with Pastor Gbenga Samuel - a pastor at one of the UK's largest churches the Pentecostal Winners' Chapel in Dartford - who claims they can help people stop being gay.
In one video, two pastors from the church can be seen spinning the reporter around on the floor, telling him: “Let there be a release! Let the fire come upon him!”
Then, Samuel is filmed comparing how the Nazis persuaded boys to kill Jewish men and women in the gas chambers during World War Two to the promotion of homosexuality.
Samuel asked the journalist: “During World War II, how was Hitler able to get boys to gas millions of Jews in the gas chamber?
“These boys were specially trained in special school where it was played over to them, over and over, during the day and during the night, the propaganda that the Jews are the bad people, and they should be exterminated.”
Despite gay conversion therapy being banned in the UK in July, the Winners' Chapel state that their mission is "liberating men everywhere from every oppression of the devil, which includes homosexuality at its Dartford branch".
Following the discovery from the ITV reporter, the church said it would carry out an internal investigation but claimed they do not engage in any form of gay conversion therapy.
