Ghana Catholic Bishop's Conference Declares Position on LGBTQ Bill

The Ghana Catholic Bishop's Conference (GCBC) has debunked claims that Ghana risk becoming a Muslim majority state if LGBTQ activities are allowed.

The leader of GCBC Most Reverend Philip Naameh said a publication by CNN is not a true reflection of the conversation he had with the media outlet which is being replicated in some local news portals. He said this at a news conference to refute the allegations.

This comes after some news outlets published that the leader of the Ghana Catholic Bishop's Conference, Most Reverend Philip Naameh allegedly said most Ghanaians practicing gay are Christians. So if LGBTQ is allowed, it means those promoting gay and lesbians are not going to have children at all, and within a short time the Muslims will out number the Christians in the country and declare an Islamic state.

Most Reverend Philip Naameh however maintained that the publication was intended to derail the intended collective quest for the passage of the proper human sexual right and family values.

In a press conference on Monday October 11, 2021, Most Reverend Philip Naameh said "I'm alleged to have said that Ghana risk becoming a Muslim country if LGBTQ is allowed in the country. I wish to state categorically and for the avoidance of doubt that the statement attributed to me are false and do not in anyway the actual content of the conversation which has to do with the church's support for the bill.

The position of the Catholic Church on LGBTQ which I have stated in several interviews with the media has remained the same that such practices are against not only Christian values but Muslim and Traditional values as well.

In addition, I have the feeling that they only sought to cause disaffection for me and break the front of the formidable coalition behind proper human sexual right and some family values Bill.

It is in the light of the above that I call on all peace loving Ghanaians and all people of goodwill to disregard with contempt the fabrication and distortion which are intended to distract our collective quest to make sure the bill is passed".
