The Christian Council of Ghana (CCG) has added its voice to the raging concern about the movement of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex (LGBTQI) persons in Ghana.
Despite condemning the activities of this group, the Council has called on pastors and church leaders to intensify teachings on the family system and God’s purpose for marriage.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, February 23, the Council said marriage is not an end in itself.
“It is a means to an end,” the Council stated, stressing: “Marriage, therefore, goes beyond sexual satisfaction and sexual preference.”
It called on Ghanaians to reject the “lie” being perpetrated by homosexuals that it is their human right and should be incorporated into the family system in Ghana.
It says it is “willing to make available trained and qualified pastors and counsellors from our Member Churches to held all those who have passion and tendencies of unnatural relationship with the same-sex”.
“We believe that God will be able to restore such people.”
