Growing up, we did not know anything like man to man sex or woman to woman sex. We all learnt about reproduction from primary to Senior High Schools and then university. We all know that reproduction is the mating of opposite genders to produce off-springs when the conditions are right.
If the LGBTQ+ had been existing in the olden days where everyone became a gay or lesbian, we would not have had those proposing these abominable acts in recent times because the human race would have been extinct from their activities.
In human terms, a man must have sex with a woman and not woman to woman or man to man. Our Ghanaian culture frowns on these acts and must not be accepted in this country.
As a Christian country, we believe and are taught that homosexuality is a sin before God and a disgrace to society. It is a waste of time to have sessions in order to argue to legalize such activities in the country. There are more pressing matters that need to be discussed and addressed.
For me as a Ghanaian, I think the anti-LGBTQ+ bill is not a bad idea as it will go a long way to prevent people from engaging in such acts. As it stands now, there are people in the country who are involved in such acts.
As a Ghanaian, I support the Anti-LGBTQ+ bill because my customs and traditions frown upon it. Homosexuality is a choice not a right. Those who are against the bill are trying to insult the intelligence of God. Even in science, like poles repel and unlike poles attract. The day the bill will be presented in Parliament for consideration, I am hoping it will be televised live for the whole Ghana to see the MPs who will vote against the bill. I strongly believe Parliament will pass the bill but if they fail to do so, we will organize a naked demonstration across the country.
I believe the world is a diverse place, with lots of people born with differences, beliefs, perspectives, associations, Hence the reason people choose to be part of the LGBTQ+ community. People should be allowed to explore their sexuality as much as they explore their rights. I therefore do not agree with the Anti-LGBTQ+ bill.
Surprisingly, I have two views on the topic. From the Christian view, I strongly agree with the anti-LGBTQ+ bill. This is based on my religious beliefs, such that the LGBTQ+ is an act that goes against the will of God. I accept that it is a disobedience to God and hence, attracts the wrath of God. I will always avoid it since I cannot stand the consequences.
My second opinion has to do with disagreeing with the anti-LGBTQ+ bill. The reason is simple. If only LGBTQ+ will be captured in the constitution as a right for people to enjoy, anyone who advocates for people to enjoy their rights should do same with the LGBTQ+.”
“I fully support the LGBTQ+ bill. Christianity has made me know these acts are not right to engage in. Staying out of religion, the larger majority do not agree to such acts. If we say it is their right, then all the thieves and those who are into drug abuse also have their rights. If those who use drugs are to be arrested, then those engaged in the LGBTQ+ too need to be arrested.”
We all have our rights and freedoms in the country as citizens. We are governed with laws which teach us what to do and what not to do. But if you are in a society and the things you do are not accepted, I don’t think it is right for you to continue doing that. Putting religion aside, coming out publicly to engage in that action is a bad influence. We all have our beliefs but this is not something one should be proud of. I think the bill is very important to be passed into law.
