Kwaku Bonsam’s take on gay marriage

By on

bonsam1Dreaded traditional priest, Nana Kwaku Bonsam, has asked Ghana’s President, John Mahama, to re-assure Ghanaians his government would not hide behind the cloak of ‘civil rights’ to legalise same sex marriages just as the United States did recently.

The priest has also urged Ghanaian pastors whose churches have branches in the United States to break their silence on the legalisation of same sex marriages in America and openly condemn it.

“What I see is that our leaders are not sure what position to take on this homosexuality rights issue; and that is why we must ask our president and direct questions on Ghana’s position on homosexuality and why we have not joined the international debate. When I went to New York recently, the debate was very heated there but in Ghana, we are silent on it though we know the homosexuals are increasing in number and getting more people involved,” Bonsam told NEWS-ONE in Twi.

He continued: “All our leaders say Ghana is not in support of homosexuality and we have laws against homosexuality yet almost every Ghanaian knows where to find someone involved in homosexualism and it is surprising that we pretend homosexuality is a crime but we do not question or deal with people who commit that crime.

“Even our renowned pastors who have big churches in Ghana and the churches have branches in America have all been silent since America passed the law to make homosexuality a legal thing. Either they are silent because they support the new law or they do not want to have problems with America because they have churches there and the churches are making a lot of dollars for them. We all have to start praying because I can smell it in the air that there are people in very high places pushing a gay agenda in Ghana and our churches cannot help it,” Bonsam added.

America’s Supreme Court ruled last week that same sex couples could marry nationwide.
