Government should be tough on LGBT and other similar issues

The Western Regional Network of Churches, Ministers, and Councils have tasked the government to lay a bill that will expressly proscribe and criminalize the practice and advocacy of LGBT. The group said the Bill should call to order all foreign nationals in Ghana whose actions constituted an affront to the laws and sovereignty of Ghana. The Network argued that academic manipulations influenced by sinful desires, twisting of scriptures, theories of moral relativity, and liberalism could never be accepted in any well-meaning society.

The Group also charged traditional rulers, the Assemblies, and Members of Parliament to make a solemn commitment of ending the practice in the country.  The Network, however, encouraged health institutions to offer help to affected persons, while the church put together educational materials for upholding high morals in churches and schools. The Chairman says one responsibility of the government was to uphold the sanctity and sacredness of human lives bequeath by the creator describing LGBT and other sexual ‘misbehaviors’ as pervasive and deep deprivation.

The network, however, encouraged health institutions to offer help to affected persons, while the church is encouraged to help them.
