But on Adom FMs morning show Dwaso Nsem Wednesday, Rt. Rev Christopher Nyarko Andam opined that, homosexuality is abnormal and abominable and should never be encouraged on the excuse of respecting the human rights of gays and lesbians.
He said the fact that same-sex marriage has been legalized elsewhere does not make it right for it to be either copied or replicated in Ghana.
“Why don’t the UK and other countries put pressure on the Arab countries to legalize homosexuality” he quizzed.
