General Secretary of the Christian Council, Rev. Dr. Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong says any political party that allows same sex marriage in Ghana will never win elections again in the country.
He is calling on churches traditional leaders not to leave the fight against homosexuality to politicians because politicians can go collect money and disappoint Ghanaians.
He says the church and traditional leaders will continue to fight any government that goes for money and seeks to legalize homosexuality.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo had told Jane Dutton on Talk to Al Jazeera, legalisation of homosexuality is not on his government’s agenda.
But the status of gays in the country could change if there is a groundswell of pressure for that to be done, he said.
“At the moment, I don’t feel, I don’t see that in Ghana there is that strong current of opinion that is saying this is something we need to deal with. It is not so far a matter that is on the agenda,” he said.
Pressure groups, religious organizations and political opponents have taken issues with the president over his comments.
But Rev. Dr. Opuni-Frimpong says marriage is owned by the family so no pastor has the right to bless any marriage unless the families of the couple have sanctioned it.
He is therefore calling on pastors not to take it upon themselves and bless marriages without family approval.
