I have always promoted peaceful coexistence, religious tolerance - Catholic Bishop

Most Rev. Philip Naameh


A Metropolitan Archbishop for the Catholic church, Most Rev. Philip Naameh is emphasizing that he has always promoted peaceful coexistence, religious tolerance and harmony amongst all people for the past 44 years of been a priest.


The president of Ghana Catholic Bishops Conference, Most Rev. Philip Naameh revealed this when he clarified his position on an alleged Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer Asexual "LGBTQIA+ comment towards Muslim-Majority in Ghana.


In a publication that came from CNN last week indicated that, the president of Ghana Catholic Bishops conference, Most Rev. Philip Naameh expressing his views concerning LGBTQ, allegedly said in quote "Ghana risked becoming Muslim-Majority country if LGBTQIA+ is allowed".


According to him, the statement attributed to him is false and do not in anyway reflect the actual content of the conversation which has to do with the church's support of the bill.


Most Rev Naameh added that, the position of the Catholic church on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer Asexual "LGBTQIA+" which he has stated in several interviews with the media, including upfront Joy News and Citi Fm last week has remained the same.


The Catholic Church stands on LGBTQIA+ indicate that such practices are against not only christian values, but Muslim and Traditional values as well.


The Metropolitan Archbishop of Tamale emphasize, he has the feeling that people sought to cause disaffection of him and break the front of the formidable coalition behind the Proper Human Rights and Family Values Bill.


Most Rev. is therefore calling on all peace-loving Ghanaians and all people of goodwill to disregard the alleged statement leveled against him with contempt of fabrication and distortions which are intended to distract their collective quest to make sure the bill is passed.

As the debate on LGBTQIA+ is ongoing, the Catholic Bishops conference has insisted on its mutual collaboration among Christian, Muslims, Traditional leaders and all other Faith Based in the country for peaceful co-existence and the common good.
