Televangelist and economist Rev. Dr. Lawrence Tetteh has said homosexuals often realise their folly when they are on their sickbeds and about to die.
The debate over Ghana’s position on homosexuality has been revived after President Akufo-Addo failed to vehemently condemn the act, like other former Presidents of the country, had done in the past.
“This is the socio-cultural issue if you like…I don’t believe that in Ghana, so far, a sufficiently strong coalition has emerged which is having that impact on public opinion that will say: ‘Change it [the law], let’s then have a new paradigm in Ghana,” he said in an answer to a question in an interview with Aljazeera on why Ghana’s laws still criminalise homosexuality,” the President said in an interview with Aljazeera.
Ghanaian culture and norms frown on homosexuality, even though the country’s laws do not criminalise the act per se.
Speaking to Francis Abban on the Morning Starr Monday, the International Evangelist and President of the Worldwide Miracle Outreach said the clergy will fight any attempt to normalise the act in Ghana.
“There are some who tell you how unwise and foolish they have been for being homosexuals when on their dying beds. We shouldn’t politicize the issue of homosexuality at all. What is wrong is wrong. We should take the repercussions of homosexuality very serious. Let us not be so eloquent with this discussion and make homosexuality look so right. It is wrong,” he said.
