- Prof. Mike Aaron Oquaye has reiterated his strong opposition against any conversation on homosexuality again
- This time Ghana's Speaker of Parliament says he will never be part of any debate on the floor of Parliament in relation to same-sex relationships
Speaker of Parliament, professor Aaron Mike Oquaye has vehemently reiterated his opposition against the same-sex in Ghana.
In a latest development, the former Member of Parliament says he will resign if pro-gay bill is brought to parliament during his tenure.
“If anybody should bring such a thing to parliament and I have to preside over that, I'd rather resign than subscribe to this delusion,” Prof Oquaye told Paul Adom-Otchere in a yet-to-be aired interview on Metro TV's Good Evening Ghana programme scheduled for Thursday, 10 May 2018.
“If [a discussion] should happen, just by way of conjecturing, I would leave. I would not preside over that. No; I would not preside over that and I would not be part of that. It would be a matter of serious principle, including my Christian ideals.”
The reverend minister also said in the interview that same-sex relationships were created by Satan “to destroy God’s best formation, that is the human being.”
“Very very evil. Dangerous. The church cannot allow it. God loves the sinner but he hates sin. We love them, but we will treat them and get them out of that miserable situation,” he added.
Earlier in the year, Prof. Mike Oquaye said the House will not be coerced to pass any legislation that endorses gay rights.
Addressing a group of religious leaders who paid a courtesy call on him, Prof Oquaye insisted that the current crop of parliamentary leadership would not endorse an act that majority of Ghanaians abhor.
