Pastor Angus Buchan has been receiving widespread backlash after claiming only Jewish people and Afrikaners share a covenant with God.

Briefly.co.za reported that EFF secretary-general Godrich Gardee had called for the Loftus Stadium to be blown up during an upcoming event in retaliation.

While Buchan issued an apology, the Christians of South Africa movement has rejected his statement:

"To us, this sugar-coated apology lacks reason, remorse and sensitivity. The party is confident that this Angus Buchan has reached his sell-by date and needs to retire with immediate effect."

COSA insists that it would be hypocrisy to allow the pastor's "uncontested credentials in the Christian community to cloud our approach to his neo-nazism statement of madness".

IOL reports that the organisation has called for South Africans to distance themselves from Buchan:

"This Verwoed descendant needs to wake-up to reality - God bless us all."

COSA blasted the ACDP, SA's only Christian political party, for their silence on the incident:

"Christian fraternals and eldermans should join the country in condemning the regrettable utterance of this old man. Cosa is committed to transforming and uniting the body of Christ through any means possible."
