Chairman of the Christian Council most Reverend Paul Kwabena Boafo has indicated that the council is against the activities and acts of the LGBTQI and not the personality of those involved in the act.

According to him the council do not criminalize LGBTQI individuals but see actions as a disorder in their life and those who are calling for it to be legalized must undergo certain counseling and deliverance. 

In an interview with Nana Ampratwum on OmanbapaShow , Rev Boafo stressed that the Ghanaian culture and laws totally frown on the activities of LGBTQI and hence it is a breach of the law and a sin.

''In the holy book same sex relationship is against the Commandments of God and we see it as a sin and those engaging in such act are suffering from a disorder..... as a Council we have an avenue to deliver and adjust these individuals back to society if they avail themselves''

''Our outfit do not criminalize these individuals with LGBTQI but we are against the activities and acts of the group or individuals and so as a country we have to obtain a legislation that aborts and criminalizes LGBTQ+ acts''

''If they argue that it is their right to practise this act, we all have rights too but there are laws in the country that regulates these rights and so a section cannot disrupt the peace we are enjoying as a country''

Reverend Boafo further explained that the Christian Council as a Coalition is giving it a holistic approach in assisting these individuals back to normal life.

''Whiles we are legislating against it knowing that their sexual orientation which is a disorder, we have physicians and hospitals that can help them to come out of this life...We are with open arms to receive them and help them overcome whatever is disturbing them...we have a way of delivering them out of it''

''And so if they are willing to access our platforms we can give them the needed support''
