Ghana Baptist Convention talks tough: Gayism Is Not A Human Right Issue! … Accepting it will incur God’s wrath on Ghana

The Ghana Baptist Convention (GBC) Ministers’ Conference has vehemently kicked against the practice of LGBTQ+ in Ghana and that it should not be seen as a human rights issue as well.

According to Rev. Dr Charles Owusu Ampofo, the President of the Ministers’ Conference, they as pastors and believers are vehemently opposed to pressure from anywhere that intends to compel the nation to accept the practice.

He, therefore, called on parliament to hasten the passage of the Bill that could criminalise the practice, which he described as satanic.

Rev. Ampofo was speaking at the Ghana Baptist Convention Ministers’ Conference and the 60th Annual Refresher course and Business session at Baptist Women’s Retreat Centre at Ejura in the Ashanti region.

The theme for this year’s conference was: “The costly Discipline of Godly Minister”.

Rev. Ampofo contended that the acceptance of the practice will totally undermine family and human existence of God’s creation, which he said is rebellion against God.

According to him, apart from the word of God against the practice, it is also against our cultural values as Ghanaians and Africans, hence the need to oppose the practice from every angle, no matter what sections of people or individuals may see it.

He stressed that treating the practice as human rights issue is neither here nor there, because where one’s freedom ends, another man’s freedom begins. He urged all stakeholders in the country to rise up with one voice against LGBTQ+.

He warned that, accepting the practice will attract punishment from as a sovereign God.

The President of the Ghana Baptist Convention also urged the ministers to try and solve socio economic issues and to deepen their relationship with God, as ministers and their flock.
