Pastor Logan Robertson, who has for a short time pastored Pillar Baptist Church in Australia, will be deported from the country, according to Australian immigration officials.
From The Guardian:
An extremist self-styled pastor, who harassed people at two Brisbane mosques, is likely to be deported after being arrested overnight.
The immigration minister, Peter Dutton, said Logan Robertson, a New Zealand national, was taken into custody on Friday evening and had been placed in detention.
“My message is clear – if people come to this country, they need to abide by the conditions of their visas,” Dutton told reporters on Saturday
“We have a wonderful tradition in our country of freedom of speech, but we’re not going to tolerate people going to a place of worship and harassing others.”
The arrest follows three men, including the 31-year-old Robertson, being charged over being a public nuisance and trespassing at the Kuraby mosqueand the Darra mosque.
Robertson formerly pastored Westcity Bible Baptist Church in Avondale, New Zealand, and is a citizen of New Zealand, to where he will soon be deported. The guardian also recently reported on Robertson’s actions at the mosque, after which Robertson and two church members were charged with public nuisance.
New Zealanders are also not big fans of Robertson, who preached that sodomites should be shot.
