Johan Heyns

Johan Heyns

Johan Adam Heyns, was an influential Afrikaner Calvinist theologian and moderator of the general synod of the Nederduits Gereformeerde Kerk in South Africa. He was assassinated at his home in Waterkloof Ridge, Pretoria. Although his murder was never officially resolved it is widely believed that it was directly related to his criticism of Apartheid and his liberal theological thinking that led him to accept a pro-gay thesis of Dr. Hendrik Pretorius, which resulted in great discord in his church. Nelson Mandela paid homage to him as a martyr for his country and a soldier of peace. ... more on Wikipedia
