The Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram constituency, Hon. Samuel Nartey George has disclosed that the leadership of the Church of Pentecost has led other Church leaders to present about 15 memos with over 15,000 signatories in support of the Anti-LGBTQI bill.
Hon. Samuel Nartey George stated that the move by the Church Leaders followed a call he had on the morning of October 6, 2021, from the General Secretary of the Church of Pentecost to inform him that a number of Church leaders were going to be in Parliament to present memos in support of the Anti-LGBTQI Bill which have already laid before the Parliament.
The other churches include; the Methodist Church Ghana, The Apostolic Church Ghana, The Christian Council of Ghana, the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council, the National Association of Charismatic and Christian Churches among other Clergymen and women.
According to Hon. Samuel Nartey George, earlier this week, the Catholic Bishops Conference, the Assemblies of God Ghana, The Ashaiman Muslim Community, and the Islamic Council of Ghana had all sent in memos backing the Bill.
The Anti-Gay law advocate, Hon. Samuel Nartey George has however said he only looks forward to the stakeholder’s engagements and the subsequent debates in Parliament as over 100 memos from across the world have come in.
