The UK’s Prime Minister-David Cameroon over the weekend vigorously said that aid would be cut to African countries (including Ghana) which fail to respect gay rights…

Ghana got heated this week with various politicians and concerned citizens attacking the UK Prime Minister for this ‘ill statement’ calling him a bully and ‘nonsense talker’.

Many have mentioned that, Ghana is not that poor and if our leaders had managed our resources well, we would have been the one giving aids to UK. I so much agree with this.

I have heard some interesting comments on this legalization of ‘Gay rights’ issue and have also heard some pretty stupid arguments.

Anti-corruption campaigner and NPP Member of Parliament for Asikuma-Odoben-Brakwa in the Central Region, Hon Paul Collins Appiah-Ofori took it to a different level saying…

“Can’t you see the guy is a fool? Can’t you just see he is a fool? When God created this world, what directives did he give to mankind? He told us to go and multiply and he meant we should be producing off-springs. Can a man who has sex with the same gender or a female who does likewise, produce babies? So if you are a Prime Minister and you want this disgusting thing to go on, go tell it to your own people but not to Africans,”

He continued…“No sane government in Ghana or Africa will pass a law entertaining the rights of gays… I am not aware if this government has put in place laws which allows same sex marriage and this what the British Prime Minister wants for Africa to practice. Let me be frank, for him to propose this clearly shows he is a fool and doesn’t have any sense.”

“Scientifically, it is the male sperm that fertilizes the female eggs to produce babies…so a female egg can never fertilize another female’s egg to produce children. Assuming we were practicing it and we died one day, where is our next generation going to come from? He is “aboa” (fool) for proposing this and we are not prepared to entertain it in Africa,”

Yesterday Ghana’s President Prof John Atta Mills added his voice and stated the official stand of Ghana in relation to the legalization of Gay rights. The President said…

“Let me make one thing very clear, no one can deny Prime Minister Cameron his right to make policies, take initiatives or make statements that reflect his societal norms and ideals but he does not have the right to direct other sovereign nations as to what they should do especially when their societal norms are different.

I as President of this nation would never initiate or support any attempt to legalise homosexuality in Ghana. As a government we will abide by the principles enshrined in the constitution which is supreme.

Let me also state that while we acknowledge all the financial assistance and aid by our development partners, we would not accept any aid with strings attached if that aid will not inure to our interest or the implementation of that aid with strings attached would worsen our plight as a nation or destroy the very society that we want to improve”.

Personally, I have always stated that, either legal or not people’s sexual orientation does not really bother me. If you want to be Gay, that is your problem and I have no problem with that as long as you do not push your practice down my throat or force society to embrace it as RIGHT.

When you are in your bedroom, no one knows what you do down there…Continue doing it if it makes you happy but then, don’t push the limits!

The Ghana’s parliamentarians have been discussing this and majority of them do not agree to legalizing ‘Homosexualism’…Where do you stand?

    Yes, God said we should multiply on earth but also be able to cater for our multiplecations.

    Being GAY/LESBIAN is as punishable as not being able to cater for those kids we produce.

    Yes, I agree with the president…do as you may behind the privacy of your own home, but don’t shove it down our throats. Moreover, what are Gays seeking rights for? Marraige? If its for marriage, you are asking the wrong people…go and ask your parents and the elders of your family, as we all know most of the marriages in Ghana were done traditionally. I beg I have nothing againest gay people and infact I strongly believe that we should leave the judging to God, but don’t try and start baseless arguments all in the name of some countries are doing it, so we must also do it.

    I stand with the president. This nonsense is a western thing. Enough is enough!!. In the UK today, a man who marries two women (polygamist) has committed a felony and the same in the US but a wo/man marrying another wo/man  is ok?   What sense does that make. Kwasias3m k3k3!        

    The UK/US governments have murdered over NINE HUNDRED THOUSAND people in Iraq alone. Did they think about their human rights before killing them?  This is nonsense.
