Religious leaders in the country have advised Ghana?s lawmakers to reject, without any condition, any attempt by Western countries to legalize the practice of homosexuality in the country.
homosexualThe founders of the Reformed Baptist Church Rev. Praise Agyei, the True God?s Power Miracle Church Rev. Parkson Samuel Kofi Aidoo and the Rejoice Ministry Int. Prophet Kwabena Boakye all in Agona Swedru have condemned the practice of homosexuality in no uncertain terms, saying it is an abomination to God and an affront to African culture.
Their concern follows the endorsement and passage of laws in the United States of America the backs homosexuality and makes it legal.
It would be recalled that about three years ago, the British Prime Minister David Cameron urged Ghana and other African countries to accept the practice of homosexuality and make it legal, or risk receiving any donor support from the U.K.
His request prompted the then president, late Prof. John Evans Fiifi Atta-Mills to come out publicly to Checks reject the warning in no uncertain terms, saying Ghana is a Souvering nation and will not allow any country to dictate to it, or will it receive any donor support with strings attached to it.
But Rev. Praise Agyei, Rev. Parkson Samuel Kofi Aidoo and Prophet Kwabena Boakye have all expressed fear that the practice of homosexuality may be pushed down the throat of Ghana if care is not taken, now that the president of the USA Barak Obama has passed laws legalizing it.
They have therefore cautioned Ghana?s legislature, the Parliament House not to bow to any international pressure to pass such law in the country, else it will spell doom for the country.
According to the members of the Clergy, the hand of God is still on the country, and it only need the direction of its leaders for the country to realize His blessings.
They have therefore appealed to the president, John Dramani Mahama to come out publicly to state his position on the issue as done by his predecessor Prof. Atta Mills, to put the minds of Ghanaians to rest on the matter.
