Amidst the drama of the European Union opening an LGBT office in Ghana, some Catholic Bishops in the country are calling on Nana Addo to shut down the office with immediate effect. The Catholic Bishops demanded that Nana Addo’s government takes immediate response in shutting down the LGBT office opened here in Accra.
A statement which was released by the president of the GCB, Most Rev. Philip K. Naameh, the Catholic Church will never recognise same sex marriages in Ghana.
Some part of his statement reads; ”its complete disorder of the fundamental law of God in creating man and woman. According to the Church’s understanding of human rights, the rights of homosexuals as persons do not include the right of a man to marry a man or of a woman to marry a woman.
For the church, this is morally wrong and goes against the purpose of marriage. He also used the opportunity to urge the Executive and the Legislature never to succumb to the pressure to legalize the rights of the LGBTQI in the country, adding that the bible considers homosexuality in the Old Testament as a ”perversion and a pagan abomination”.
He further added; ” We, the Catholic Bishops of Ghana write to condemn all those who support the practice of homosexuality in Ghana. We also write to support the position of Lawyer Foh-Amoaning and the Coalition who for years has been championing the crusade against homosexuality”.
