Two personalities have dominated the headlines this week. Akoto Ampaw, lead counsel for President Akufo-Addo in the 2020 election petition, leads of a group of professions against a bill to criminalize homosexuality. He has been met with heavy resistance by the Chairman of the Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye. Few days ago, a group of Christian denominations presented their memos to the clerk of Parliament and pledged their support for the bill.
According to Apostle Nyamekye, any government that sought to legitimize LGBT rights will be voted against in election times. This run contrary to Akoto Ampaw who claimed that at this moment Ghana had more pressing issues than fighting to make LGBT illegal.
Well, today, Friday, October 8, 2021, Eric Nyamekye in a post on Facebook has sent another missile flying. According to a simple message he posted, he noted that if every behavior is shielded by law, then soon enough there will be no laws. In explanation it means that as long as citizens try to defend everything or try to give a voice to any act, sooner or later nothing will become a crime and the society will become chaotic and lawless.
This message is seen as a clear signal to the camp of Akoto Ampaw. Many have reacted to the post and have encouraged the man of God to remain strong and keep on fighting for the body of God. It is interesting to know that there have been other proponents who have started saying that churches should be taxed now because they have entered into the arena of politics.
Well, November will promises to be an interesting month as Parliament will have a reading of the Bill placed before it by Sam George and some other MPs.
