Listen: White people never too

Listen: White people never took anything from anyone. Sandton Pastor

Pastor Andre Olivier from the Rivers Church in Sandton has found himself in hot water for making comments favouring white people and, in the eyes of some, insinuating that black people are lazy.

Listen: White people never too

Pastor Olivier’s weekend sermon has hit the news hard and some folks claim that his message was racist as it ‘favoured white people’.

At on point in his sermon, Olivier said:“We took nothing from no one. Maybe the law favoured us, but we worked, and I am still working. And when you tell me I need to share my wealth, what are you suggesting?… Are you suggesting I give away some of it? Are you giving any of yours away? Excuse me?” 

The church has responded by saying that the media should have a listen to the entire sermon for “clarity and to avoid possible legal recourse” so as not to misrepresent what was actually said.”

The church added that, “Where applicable, defamation cases will be opened,” the church said.
