Osofo Kofitse Ahadzi, a cultural anthropologist and senior member of the Afrikania Mission, has charged the leadership of parliament to put a stop to prayer sessions in the chamber before parliamentary sittings.
“This brings the question of parliamentarians going to parliament and every morning holding morning devotion. What type of business is that? It is wrong…if you want to pray, pray in your house before going,” he told Class FM’s Moro Awudu in an interview on Monday, March 13.
He was of the view that God is worshipped in faith and in spirit and one did not need be in any physical building before communing with God, hence offering prayers should not be held in the chamber, which is meant for debates and the making of laws.
He has also charged the leadership of the country to take a strong stance against homosexuality because the act is unnatural and against tradition.
According to him, “Even animals don’t behave this way. Can you see a he-goat mounting a he-goat? No. So why should human beings be doing that? And then you think that it’s your human right? Maybe is your human left. We can’t tolerate this in this country. They must give us a break.
“Was it David Cameron who said if we don’t accept homosexuality they won’t give us aid? Now are we being pushed to accept homosexuality because somebody will give us aid? Why can’t we develop ourselves? What can we get from the almond tree to help us grow well? We have all the plans that we need to cure our problems and not this homosexuality. Not introducing us to senseless acrobatics. We must think again.
“In the time of our ancient ancestors, there was nothing like homosexuality. If you want to marry three or four women, that’s fine. It’s been created that a man must marry a woman, not a woman marrying a woman.”
The traditionalist said homosexuals could “go and hang themselves” if they were not ready to change their orientation, adding: “If they can’t live normal lives they should go and commit suicide and save our generation from getting out of tune with reality.”
The late President John Evans Atta-Mills rejected pressure from then-UK Premier David Cameron for Ghana to support same sex marriage despite threats by the British government to cut aid.
