Source: Daily Graphic Ghana - The General Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana (CCG), Rev. Dr Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong, has described same sex marriage as ‘unbiblical’, unChristian and unAfrican.
According to him, the practice should be resisted and condemned by all Christians and well-meaning Ghanaians.
Speaking at a service at the Accra Ridge Church yesterday, Rev. Opuni-Frimpong said even though the practice had found its way into the legal books of some countries, Ghana should not compromise on its cultural and moral values.
He said Ghanaians should resist any temptation and influence from any country or individuals to legalise same sex marriage.
“God’s principle for marriage, which is also in line with African cultural values, is between a man and a woman. This is supposed to be the foundation for every family, as prescribed by God. Therefore, for a man to marry a man and a woman to marry a woman is very ungodly and unnatural,” he said.
He stated that it was the responsibility of fathers and mothers to have children and not people who had entered into same sex marriages and quoted Leviticus 18:22 and Ephesians chapters five and six to buttress his point.
Rev. Opuni-Frimpong also explained that the family was the bedrock of every nation. That, he said, meant if Christians compromised their values and those of the family, then the nation would have no values to sustain its growth.
He admonished countries that had accepted the practice not to use it as a basis for bilateral engagements with other countries, saying, “Such nations should respect the religious rights and values of the nations which have decided not to accept and legalise same sex marriage.”
Rev. Opuni-Frimpong said the CCG was ready to counsel individuals who were engaged in same sex marriages to help them restructure their lives.
He entreated churches and the public not to attack homosexuals but to support and love them so that they could stop the practice.
