Ghanaian based American investigative Journalist and self acclaimed anti-corruption campaigner, Kelvin Ekow Taylor has once again waded into reactions concerning the LGBTQ rights in the country. Kelvin Taylor, though opposes the calls for the LGBTQ to be legalized has criticised a program scheduled to pray against the movement.
According to Kelvin Taylor, who is dissatisfied with the current state of affairs it is unimportant for the nation to waste resources to pay pastors to pray against the LGBTQ community. He argued that, it can be tackled by changing the attitudes of some Ghanaians and some top leaders in government who are advocating for its legalisation.
This comment follows after the flyers of a program dubbed "One Day National Prayer Against LGBTQ" popped up online. According to information on the flyer, about 5 powerful men of God will lead Ghana in prayers against the forces of the LGBTQI. Many Ghanaians have since then, shared mixed reactions over the event and others have even mounted strong opposition to it.
Speaking on his televised With All Due Respect show last night, he condemned the show and called on Ghanaians to change their attitudes. In what he described as a disappointment, he registered his resentment over the calls being made by some Members of Parliament for the "unacceptable" conduct to be practised in the country.
"I don't see anything special in this. It is just about a change in our thinking. As at now, there are some MPs and powerful Ghanaian gurus who are pushing for the thing to be legalised. The President must just make a law to ban it totally. This is not about prayers. I cannot keep quiet; Your prayers will not stop LGBTQ."
