Homosexuals also have rights; the churches and mosques have failed to educate their members; Ampaw

Private Legal practitioner, Mr. Akoto Ampaw said LGBTQ persist in the Ghanaian society because churches in Ghana have failed to inculcate the values that their beliefs promote in their members. Speaking on Key Points on TV3, he has said that churches and mosques which are in the overwhelming majority in Ghana have the right to preach to their members not to engage in the activities of Lesbians, Gay bisexuals, Transgender, and Queer and others.

He maintained that the Clergy has failed in the attempt to incubate tenets into their members that may prevent their members from developing a tendency to become homosexuals. "Churches, mosques, and other religious organizations that do not believe or that are against homosexuals, they can preach that view as a religious education among their majority congregation so that they may not be infested by LGBTQ so-called propaganda or advocacy. Notwithstanding all the churches or mosques that we have across the country who are doing 24 hour service a day , and the perceive that there is this problem, is it is because they have failed in the education of their flock? Is that they have failed in inculcating the values that their beliefs promote that they now run to the state to stamp a small majority. It is clearly in my view it is an admission of failure on their part", he said.

He also added that democracy is not the same as majoritarianism. And that the are basic rights that the constitution provides to every individual whether you are in the majority or minority. So he suggested that, in analyzing the situation, it should not be about what the majority want alone but also the right of the minority.
