Religious leaders maintain stand against LGBTQI+

By: Henrietta Afful

President and Founder of the Worldwide Miracle Outreach, Reverend Dr Lawrence Tetteh says accepting activities of LGBTQI+ will undermine Ghana’s cultural values and norms.

He said one cannot talk of rights when that person does not respect the moral and cultural values of the country.

“You cannot be a thing to have a right, you have to be a man or woman to have rights” the owner of the hashtag #thisnonsense must stop said.


Dr Tetteh said Ghanaians seem to be taking everything for granted adding that the loud silence from the leaders of the country is worrying.

He said, that is a clear indication that there is a problem expressing disappointment in the fact that the elite who are supposed to be educating the vulnerable in society are rather encouraging the act under the guise of human rights.

Dr. Lawrence Tetteh said this in an interview on LGBTQI+ and matters arising on the Breakfast Show on GTV today, October 21, 2021.

Sharing his thoughts on a comment made by a Public Health Physician, Dr. Samuel Duh, that “MP’s have better things doing than passing an anti-homosexuality Bill”, spokesperson for the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Aremeyaw Shaibu described the doctor’s position as most unfortunate.

Sheikh Aremeyaw said politicians are not in Parliament just to make rules and seek material advancement of Ghanaians but to protect the moral and cultural values of the country.

“Our laws are built on values as Ghanaians and our values are emanations of our identity that which forms our identity as a group” he said.

The views were expressed on the ‘Headlines’ segment on GTV’s Breakfast Show.
