Gay rights: ‘You’re ignorant of what you’re battling for’- Foh-Amoaning to Akoto Ampaw & co
Law Lecturer at Ghana School of Law, Verteran Journalist and Executive Secretary of Coalition of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Moses Foh-Amoaning is wondering whether Akoto Ampaw and his 18 cohorts fully understand the nature of what they are attempting to battle for.
18 intellectuals led by Lawyer Akoto Ampaw are opposed to the anti-LGBTQ Bill currently before Parliament. They have since petitioned Parliament to reject the bill.
Below are 18 intellectuals fighting against the anti-LGBTQ+ Bill:
LGBTQQIP2SAA stands for lesbian, gay, sexually unbiased, transsexual, addressing, eccentric, intersex, pansexual, two-soul (2S), male/female and agamic.
Lawyer Foh-Amoaning, however, said he doubts the 18 ‘apostles’ really know what they are doing.
“A handful of them, I guess, can do so, yet these are the people pushing for the rights of the people whose activities they hardly understand”, Lawyer Foh Amoaning
“I wonder if my learned colleague, Mr Akoto Ampaw, can tell the full meaning of the letter ‘P’ in the LGBTQIIP”, he teased.
He explained that the plus in the abbreviation means the promoters of LGBTQ+ sexuality intend to be adding more deviant sex lifestyles.
To him, LGBTQ+ is an amalgamation of deviant sexual behaviours and not a right, as the 18 professionals have made some Ghanaians believe.
“If my colleague lawyers among the 18 professionals care to know, the ‘P’ in the abbreviation stands for pan-sexual, since they desire to have sex with inanimate and animate objects”.
Pan-sexuals, he noted, do not mind having sex with animals as well as objects like common bread.
“Where in the world will one describe this act as a human right”, he bemoaned.
“The 18 professionals should be able to tell us what the rights of these people are before they can be considered as part of the bill”, he demanded.
As a country, Mr Foh-Amoaning said: “We can only enforce the rights of people we know but the rights of LGBTQ+ is unknown in the Ghanaian setting”.
“It is no wonder the promoters of LGBTQ+ activities are scholars from reputable universities like Harvard and Oxford among others across the world. These are powerful people in academia and the media”, he told Accra-based Happy FM on Thursday.
