I Will Never Condemn Those Indulged In LGBTQI - Father Campbell Finally Declares His Stance (Video)

The anti LGBTQI bill presented before Parliament continues to spark reactions across the length and breadth of the country. Since the inception of the debate in the country, many Ghanaians have shared mixed reactions, with some condemning the phenomenon and others mounting strong opposition to the private bill.

The main sponsor Honourable Sam Nartey George has revealed the numerous support the bill has received from some prominent Ghanaians; especially clergymen and other Members of Parliament. Indeed, the latest report gives a glimmer of hope despite the bill having to go through intensive debate at the floor of Parliament.

Despite the plethora of support for the bill, the attempt by the camp of intelligent professors led by veteran Lawyer Akoto Ampaw cannot be underestimated. In all means available, from memos to media interviews and pressers, Lawyer Akoto Ampaw has registered his displeasure over the "extremism of the bill" and how he believes could lead to discrimination in the society.

On the TV3 NewDay show hosted by popular Ghanaian Journalist, Johnny Hughes, a very intelligent and revered Parish Priest of the Christ the King Catholic Church who doubles as the founder of Lepers Aid Committee, Father Campbell has shared his opinion on the LGBTQI brouhaha.

Father Campbell indicated that, it is not biblically acceptable for sinners to be hated in the society as Jesus Christ showed true love to all sinners he encountered. According to him, the sin should be condemned but the sinners should be loved by every Ghanaian.

Speaking further, he declared his stance that it is morally wrong to engage in the LGBTQI and its related practices. He stated that, Ghanaians, despite their calls for the criminalization of the LGBTQI, should learn to embrace those who are indulged and speak words of wisdom to change them into better people.

In his own words he said, "Everybody is a child of God. The Bible gave us many examples of this analogy. No matter who you are, you're a child of God. I will never condemn them. What they are doing is not correct. Love the sinner but hate the sin. We should have time for anybody no matter who they are."
