Council of State Member, Nii Adjiri Blankson, is outraged at how advocates and activists of homosexuality from powerful countries seem to be pulling strings to shove down our throat gay agenda and has berated that, they (gay promoters) should not saddle Ghana with homosexuality issues as it is not in our lifestyle.
Ghana, the former Accra Mayor said, needs to go under a very serious scrutiny, saying “we want to change our life style, we want to move and that’s why the President said Ghana should be above aid so they shouldn’t saddle us with this problems.”
Unlike the European countries which solved their problems 100s of years ago and could afford to do thing on experimental basis, the Council of State member told this paper in a telephone interview yesterday, that homosexuality is not in our lifestyle because we need to transform the country, and that when homosexual activists bring in such issues it will disrupt Nana’s agenda.
He stated, for instance, that sometime ago in the UK, white people were beating homosexuals into hiding and that now; if they have penetrated with their monies to place their people into influential place, they should be fair to the country by helping us transform and develop and not saddle us with issues about homosexuality.
Earlier, before the telephone interview, Nii, as the affable Adjiri Blanson is fondly referred to, sent this paper a WhatsApp message which read that “As a devouted and unbending Christian, I feel ashamed and very angry about certain powerful countries trying to push down our throats that cancerous HOMOSEXTUALISM.”
The Council of State Member is not alone in the condemnation of gays and their activist. The Christian Council of Ghana has reiterated that Ghana’s culture and family life system cannot support the legalization of homosexuality in any form or shape.
According to the Council, homosexuality is a threat to Africa’s social protection hence their opposition to any such move.
“Homosexuality is not only a human right issue. It is also a human existence and survival issue. It threatens Africa’s social protection which is embedded in family and children. Elsewhere in Europe, marriage is between two young people who think they love each other. They can get married before they even introduce themselves to their parents. Our part of the world you need two families to come together for marriage to become possible,” he said.
The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) has also stated that, homosexual is evil and cannot be legalised in the Ghana.
