Criminalise Adultery in Ghana; It is a Sin in Christianity- Gabby Otchere Asare-Darko to Parliament

Private legal practitioner, Gabby Otchere Asare-Darko is urging the Parliament of Ghana to initiate a private member's Bill aimed at making a law against adultery. As a strong opponent of the anti-LGBTQ+ bill, Mr Gabby Otchere Asare-Darko argues that adultery is a punishable sin in Christianity; therefore, a law should be made to criminalise it with severe punishment for the offenders.

In a post sighted on his Facebook page, the former Editor-in-Chief of the Stateman news paper wrote:

"Majority of Ghanaians are Christians. They believe in upholding Christian values. Adultery is a serious sin punishable by death (Lev. 20:10). I am therefore proposing a petition to Parliament for a Private Member's Bill for a law against adultery, imposing stiff penalties".

Clearly, the motive of this line of reasoning is to suggest that what is good for that goose is equally good for the gander.

The NPP guru in the past few days have mounted a spirited defense against the controversial anti-LGBTQ Bill. He believes that the bill seeking to criminalise homosexuality and its associated activities is unnecessary, pointing to the dire consequences the country is bound to face should the bill be passed into law.
