A Labour councillor from Harrow Council has been suspended for allegedly posting tweets that called gay pride marchers “paedophiles.”
Cllr Chika Amadi, a charity worker and evangelical pastor who was elected in 2014, received tough criticism for sharing a post from anti-LGBT Christian website LifeSiteNews.com.
The tweet, since-deleted, added: “Nothing but paedophilia being labelled liberalism adults polluting children with their senselessness.”
When confronted about her message, Cllr Amadi replied saying, “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.”
Ian Dylan Thomas and Sarah Kerton, Co-chairs of LGBT Labour asked for Cllr Amadi to be suspended “and for her to be reported to the Standards Committee.”
A Labour spokesperson said: “Chika Amadi has been suspended from the Labour party pending an investigation.”
