The Church of Pentecost has issued its strongest warning yet to the Ghanaian government on legislation targeting lesbianism, gayism, bisexuality, transgenderness, and queerness, as well as their related activities (LGBTQ+).
Apostle Eric Nyamekye, the Church’s National Chairman, has stated that any political party opposed to the passing of the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill will be voted out.
“We’re going to bring people out on the street and warn any government that if they vote against this bill, we’re going to vote them out.” “Neutrality has no place here,” Apostle told media.
Apostle Nyamekye was one of roughly 30 senior clerics who presented a memorandum in support of the bill before the House Committee on Constitution and Legal Affairs on Wednesday.
On October 7, Apostle Eric Nyamekye told journalists at Parliament House that the Church will do all necessary to guarantee that the law is enacted because “it’s about the nation’s future.”
“What I’m saying has nothing to do with politics… We will not allow somebody who wants to harm this country to rule over us,” he stressed.
The Clergymen also argue that dragging the issue out will allow many more individuals to speak out against it, delaying the bill’s passage into law.
