Murder accused Oscar Pistorius is cursed for supporting homosexuals, according to report.

The Star newspaper reported that Cape Town-based pastor Oscar Bougardt already under investigation by the SA Human Rights Commission for previous homophobic statements, said Pistorius was cursed for openly supporting homosexuals.

"I will continue to make statements until I die. Someone needs to speak out about their [homosexuals'] filthy lifestyle."

Bougardt's comments on Pistorius were made on his Facebook page.

He said Pistorius whom he described as " one of those sport stars who supported the filthy lifestyle of homosexuals" was recently dropped from the "It gets better South Africa" campaign against homophobic bullying.

"I believe Oscar Pistorius is cursed for openly supporting homosexuals.

"According to the holy word of God, homosexuality is an abomination to God, and any person who supports it is doomed for hell."
