- Ohemaa Mercy has called on Ghanaians to show love to homosexuals in the country
- The star singer said showing homosexuals love was the only way to get them to give up their lifestyle
- Her comments come after President Nana Akufo-Addo said that a strong coalition of gay rights supporters could push for the legalization of homosexuality in Ghana in the future
Ghanaian distinguished gospel musician, Ohemaa Mercy, has said homosexuals need to be shown love because they are humans too.
According to Ohemaa Mercy, homosexuality is a spiritual problem which only showing love and genuine concerns for such people could make them refrain from what she called a detestable act.
In a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Myjoyonline, Ohemaa Mercy said “It takes God for one to be delivered from homosexuality.”
“That is why we need to bring those caught up in homosexuality web closer to us, talk with them and help them out of it,” Ohemaa Mercy preached.
Ohemma Mercy’s comment follows pressure being mounted by President Akufo-Addo to legalize gayism in Ghana.
For instance, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Theresa May, has urged Ghana to “soften its stance on homosexuality”.
Theresa May told President Akufo-Addo and other African leaders attending the Commonwealth heads of government meeting in London recently that it is wrong for homosexuals to be persecuted for their sexual orientation.
However, the immediate past Chairman of the Church of Pentecost, Apostle Prof Opoku Onyinah, during the 43rd General Council Meeting on May 2, warned the government that any attempt to legalise homosexuality in the country will be met with fierce resistance.
“The call to legalise homosexuality, LGBT, by some leaders of the Western world must be seen as neo-colonialism and must be condemned at the highest level. We do not accept this 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,” Opoku Onyinah stressed.
