Section of the wedded couples. Inset: Apostle E.C. Asante

A renowned man of God in Kumasi has sternly cautioned politicians against kowtowing to either external or internal pressure to legalize homosexuality in the country.

Apostle E.C. Asante, Bompata Area Head of the Pentecost Church stated that same sex marriage was an unpardonable sin before God Almighty, so Ghanaians should not accept it.

He described same sex marriage as canker which should never be allowed by people who believed and feared God, cautioning that legalizing homosexuality could lead to dire spiritual and physical consequence for the country.

Apostle Asante was speaking in an exclusive interview with DAILY GUIDE during a mass wedding organized by the Kentinkrono District Pentecost Church in Kumasi over the weekend.

Supervised by Apostle Asante, the mass wedding saw 15 couples drawn from 12 local assemblies of the Pentecost Church at the Kentinkrono District tying the knot.

There have been strong advocate across the world, especially in the western world, lately, for same sex marriage to be accepted, with those pushing for it arguing that homosexuality was the individual?s human right that should not be infringed upon. Apostle Asante insisted that the practice was evil, so he reiterated his call on politicians, notably the executive arm of government and Members of Parliament (MPs) not to ever legalize same sex marriage in Ghana ?no matter the economic or political gains associated with it.?

Still lambasting homosexuality, the Pentecost Apostle claimed that same sex could lead to diseases, curse on the populace and also restrain population growth.

Earlier on, Pastor Andrew Adua Amankwaah, Pentecost District Pastor, Bompata, preaching the sermon said marriage was a blessing in the lord, urging married couples to abide by marriage manuals always as enshrined in the Holy Bible so they would enjoy their marriage.

He charged wives to love, respect and help their husbands always, indicating that it was the core duty of husbands to wholeheartedly love their wives just as Jesus Christ loved the church.

Pastor Williams Amoah-Baffour, Kentinkrono Pentecost District Pastor, in his succinct remarks described marriage as something special in the sight of God, pointing out that God hated adultery and fornication.

The excited-looking wedded couples and their family members after the event, were seen dancing to melodious gospel music played in the church auditorium.
