The Acting President of Council of Zongo Chiefs who doubles as the Chief of Wangara in Kintampo, Nana Fanyinama III, has advised imams in the country to devote their Friday Jumah sermons to preach against LGBTQI practices in Ghana.
Speaking at a media engagement, Nana Fanyinama explained that Ghana is a highly religious country and the activities of LGBTQI are against the teachings of both the Bible and the Quran.
He believes LGBTQI activities will therefore be detrimental to the Ghanaian society especially the younger generation, if allowed to fester.
“Friday sermons are very important and must focus on happenings within the week and advise the youth. From now to the end of March we must focus on preaching against homosexuality. It is against our religion. It can bring about curses to our land,” he said.
The Chief indicated that he had already communicated to some group of Imams to make the preaching against LGBTQI at their various places of worship adding that preaching just about Jesus, Mohammed and other religious figures is not as crucial as preaching against homosexuality at the moment.
Nana Fanyinama also admonished both Muslim, Christian and all parents to educate their children on the bad effects of LGBTQI and serve as their watchdogs to prevent them from joining that devilish movement.
“Let us train our children and put the fear of God in them whether Muslims and Christians. We should not allow the peers of our children of our children to lead them astray. We would account for our stewardship someday”, he charged
He added that the consequences of legalizing the practices of LGBTQ+ in Ghana will be dire as that may can cause God’s anger at is. He, therefore, called on the government to do everything possible including enacting a law that completely bans the activities of LGBTQs in the country.
