General Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana Rev. Dr. Opuni Frimpong has warned politicians against condoning the idea of legalizing homosexuality in the country.
According to him, “any political party that decides to endorse homosexuality, this will be the last election in its history in the name of Jesus”.
Delivering a sermon at the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Immanuel Congregation at Madina, he called on the church, pastors and traditional leaders to come together to kick against same sex marriage in Ghana.
In his view, the fate of the country regarding such a delicate matter cannot be entrusted into the hands of politicians.
Rev. Dr. Opuni’s comments come after President Akufo-Addo refused to strongly refute suggestions on legalizing same sex marriages in the country.
In a recent interview with international news portal Aljazeera, the president said the legalization of gay rights “is bound to happen”, despite emphasizing that the issue is currently not part of his agenda.
Akufo-Addo’s comments have since become a matter of public debate, with the president coming in for criticism from many religious bodies, as well as sections of Ghanaians.
Rev. Dr. Opuni believes Ghanaians must continue to resist, while warning politicians not to try to force same sex marriage down the throat of citizens.
He added that political parties who condone the idea should forget about contesting future elections.
