Anti-LGBT: Lawyer Akoto Ampaw fires more shot at churches and mosques on live television

The debate about whether Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender activities should be legalised or criminalised is still dominating our airwaves.

Private Legal Practioner, Akoto Ampaw has claimed that he and other Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender campaigners are not seeking that the laws of the Republic of Ghana should legalise same sex marriage. He made this comment on TV3's weekend programme dubbed KEY POINTS today, Saturday 9th October, 2021.

He said, " we do not want the laws to legalise same sex marriage. There is sheer rumour and scare mongering that homosexuality would cause the extinction of the human race. Countries that tolerate LGBT communities are not facing that challenge."

The seasoned lawyer further stated that the churches and mosques have failed their members in big time." your churches and mosques have failed to preach good morals that is why they ( churches and mosques) are now running to state to stifle the activities of a tiny minority." He voiced.

Lawyer Akoto Ampaw branded the Anti-LGBT bill before Parliament as hypocritical. " The bill criminalises every facet of LGBT within our borders. It then provides a token protection to LGBT people. Democracy is not majoritarinism because we not dealing with numbers. We are talking about fundamental rights. I feel disappointed we are retrogressing in the 21st century. "

Former Deputy Attorney General, Joseph Kpemkah had this to say :" Growing up, Lawyer Akoto Ampaw motivated me, but I disagree with him on this one".
