A pastor has just made a ground-breaking suggestion that is bound to shake up churches, especially, the church of Pentecost, New Achimota District in Accra.
Although the Bible clearly states that fornication is a sin, Mr Nii Armah Hammond, a counsellor and elder of the church has gone ahead to advise parents and guardians to permit their children, who may struggle to control their libido to have safe sex.
Mr Hammond made these remarks at the maiden edition of Mmabunu Mmbre (Time with the youth), a youth content program hosted by Mr Akyena Brantuo on Ahotor 92.3FM every Saturday afternoon.
According to the church leader, the high incidence of teenage pregnancies in the country can be prevented or minimised if children are taught to indulge in safe sex. This he said will also prevent associated complications that come with pregnancies.
Elder Nii Armah Hammond believes that too much is at stake when young teenagers get pregnant including collateral damage to the family and the country at large.
