Respect the rights of homosexuals – Most Reverend Philip Naameh

Published

on

Most Reverend Philip Naameh who is the president of the Ghana Catholic Bishop Conference has finally added his voice to the issue of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex Life (LGBTQI+) in the country as he calls for their right to be respected as homosexuals.

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex Life (LGBTQI+) is said to have gained a lot of arguments in the country with many sharing their views on it as some calls for it to be legalized whiles the majority of the masses have spoken against it as they declare it evil and morally wrong.

The clergyman revealing his stand revealed that it is wrong for people to discriminate against people who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex Life (LGBTQI+) in the country as they are human beings like everyone and should not be denied jobs and same opportunities like people who do not practice it.

He stated saying;

Lesbians and gays are humans so we need to respect them. We need to accord them those rights that all human beings enjoy. They should not be denied employment just because they are homosexuals… They should not be denied accommodation

Speaking during an interview on Abusua FM in Kumasi Most Reverend Philip Naameh revealed that tho it is not right to practice LGBTQ he would like for people not to discriminate and treat them like they are not human.

The basis for refusing them employment should not be because they are homosexuals. Someone may have an orientation to be gay and another an orientation to be a lesbian but if he’s not acting out this orientation, first of all, he is a human being and has the right to accommodation, to work and to communion with other people and those are rights we should respect.

“We just don’t say that because he has homosexual tendencies, whereas all human beings have a right to something, he should be denied it.

The Ghana Catholic Bishop’s Conference (GCBC) beginning of the month came out to speak against the opening of the LGBTQ office in Ghana to avoid encouraging more people into practicing it.
