The Orthodox Anglican Church of Ghana is demanding a speedy process to pass the LGBTQ bill by Parliament.
The Church has said in a communique issued at the end of the 4th Diocesan General Convention of St. Peter and Paul the Apostles Diocese in Sekondi that it is fully behind the proposed bill.
The two-day convention was on the theme: “Evangelism, the engine of growth for the Orthodox Anglican Church of Ghana, a journey of faith.”
The high point of the Convention was the church’s resolve for the creation of two new Dioceses; the Eastern/Volta Missionary and Northern Missionary.
August this year, the bill was introduced in Parliament.
The bill seeks to encourage Ghanaian cultural values while restricting known LGBT+ activities and activism.
The majority of Ghanaians see the many LGBT+ activities as an abomination.
The bill will among other things criminalise activism for LGBT+ rights.
Meanwhile, the international community and rights activists have condemned the bill.
