According to Reverend Ntim Fordjour, who also serves as the Deputy Minister of Education and represents Assin South in Parliament, Ghanaians must never embrace the LGBTQ+ community’s activities.
A supporter of the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill named Ntim Fordjour stated that LGBTQ+ behaviours are merely sexual perversion and not a human right.
The subject of LGBT and all the rights that people subscribe to, I dare argue that LGBT is not a human right, it’s a sexual perversion. “Mr. Speaker, many have remarked, but same-sex marriage is abhorred by all civilizations and all religions. sexual depravity that shouldn’t be tolerated. It’s incorrect and shouldn’t be allowed. It is completely ludicrous to enable someone to chose to sleep with a tree, an animal, or anything else at all in the name of and under the pretext of human rights. Sexual depravity, not a human right, is what that is.
“The context in which we are talking about gender is that sex is allocated at birth. Nobody lacks the X chromosomes of a woman or the XY chromosomes of a man. No intermediate ground exists, according to Ntim Fordjour.
Ntim Fordjour cited Genesis 1:17–18 as the model for how marriage and sexual activity (that is, man is to woman) should be during his speech on the House of Commons during the second reading and discussion of the draught law.
We are prepared to assist them in changing their orientation in accordance with Genesis 1:17–18 if there are any hormonal abnormalities or attitudinal perversions that have caused certain persons to express certain filthy desires, he continued.
Ntim Fordjour, meantime, has questioned the rationale behind certain diplomats’ claims that Ghana is behind due to the anti-LGBTQ+ law that is presently being debated in parliament.
The MP charged such critics of being biassed in their comments in a social media post seen by GhanaWeb.
“I’ve seen that certain diplomats and LGBTQ activists are calling our choice to defend the honour and integrity of our people and our traditions by enacting the Proper Human Sexual Rights and Family traditions Bill a “backwards in culture and prosperity.” These diplomats and campaigners would dare to say the same thing to China, Brunei, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, and Qatar. Are these nations less developed and wealthy than others? Absolutely NOT!” he said.
