- The Church Pentecost is warning the NPP government not to bow to pressures from world leaders
- Apostle Opoku Onyinah has threatened the NPP with massive demonstration with his church members
The Chairman of the Church of Pentecost, Apostle Professor Opoku Onyinah has warned that any attempt by ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), government to legalise homosexuality in the country will be fiercely resisted.
According to the Apostle Opoku Onyinah, he will mobilize dozens of Church of Pentecost members nationwide to stage massive demonstration against NPP government if pressure from powerful nations in the West piles on the sitting President to legalise homosexuality.
Addressing gathering at the church’s 43rd General Council Meeting on Wednesday, the Chairman insisted that the call to legalise homosexuality by some leaders of the Western world must be seen as neo-colonialism and must be condemned at the highest level.
To him, Ghana as a sovereign nation cannot continue to accept homosexuality as an aspect of civilisation.
“Africans must see ourselves as people who are matured and know what is good for us and our people. The church in Ghana will continue to reject and oppose this and we are prepared to demonstrate against this if pressure continues to mount on our leaders,” he added.
The UK Prime Minister Theresa May addressing African leaders recently at the Commonwealth heads of government meeting in London stressed that it is wrong for homosexuals to be persecuted for their sexual preference.
Theresa May in her conversation offered that, the UK government was willing to help other African countries reform their laws and embrace homosexuality.
