The battle for the legalization of homosexuality in Ghana wages on as a member of parliament has hit hard on some Ghanaian gay activists calling for the rights of the LGBT community to be respected.

YEN had earlier reported of how a group of gay activists in Canada have secured 1000s of signatures from top politicians of Canada in favour of the legalization of homosexuality.

But the member of parliament for Assin South in the Central Region, John Ntim Fordjour says Ghana is strictly abiding by the orders of the Bible which he claims clearly speaks against the act.

So far, the speaker of parliament, Prof. Mike Ocquaye, has openly opposed the legalization of same-sex relationships arguing that Ghana's culture does not support such thing.

With the statements of the Speaker of Parliament and the John Ntim Fordjour, it is likely that parliament could soon pass a law decriminalizing homosexuality in the country.

As we speak, the true stance of Ghana on homosexuality has not been inscribed in a legal document thus making it variably difficult to determine the formal stance of the country on the rights and concerns of gays and lesbians.
