Ghana’s proposed anti LGBTQ legislation is legislation is u acceptable and must be resisted – Bishop Sarah
According to the Bishop, Ghana’s anti LGBTQ Bill will “promote fear and intolerance” which could put many lives in danger.
The anti LGBTQ Bill is currently in Parliament of Ghana and would be debated before its finally passed into law. Speaker of Parliament, Hon Sumana Alban Bagbin had earlier said Parliament won’t waste much time on the Bill.
“Ghana’s proposed anti LGBT legislation is unacceptable and must be resisted. It would promote fear and intolerance, putting the freedom of so many people under threat. We are all love equally by God. My prayers are with the LGBT community in Ghana at this time” Bishop Sarah tweeted
The bishops statement has been faced with criticism from Ghanaians including Hon. Sam George, member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram who also doubles to be the lead MP championing the anti LGBTQ Bill.
Replying Bishop Sarah, the MP question her stance, asking her to tell him “what specifically made the Bill unacceptable and must be resisted” he said, referencing it to recent reports of how French Priests have sexually abused over 330,000 children for decades.
