Why should the LGBT meeting be held in Ghana, Archbishop Kwofie questions
Most Rev John Bonaventure Kwofie, Metropolitan Archbishop of Accra has registered his displeasure about the said first ever gays, lesbians and affiliates international conference to be held in Accra between July 27 and 31 July 2020 under the patronage of the Pan Africa International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (LGBT).
He was speaking at the dedication ceremony of Saint Bakhita Catholic Church, Lashibi-TemaIn his homily, the Archbishop expressed his worry about the development and queried why Christians have allowed immorality to eat deep into society’s moral fibre.
“We have heard about the ‘Sankofa’ of the lesbians and gays who are planning to have their maiden meeting here in our country, Ghana, why Ghana? If it is true, we need to speak against it because our values do not allow us to do that. For us Christians and Muslims, we have values and we must endeavor to live up to them no matter the circumstances of life”.
He emphasized the need for a reformed mentality and steadfastness on the part of Christians and the wider community to restore sanity with a call on all to fight the evil menace in our society by upholding the values of the Christian Faith and conviction being the hallmark of Christians.
