We’ll lower LGBTQ+ flag soon- Foh Amoaning
Veteran Sports Journalist and Law Lecturer at the Ghana School of Law Moses Foh Amoaning says the anti-LGBTQ+ community including practitioners of the Christian faith will in the coming days lower the homosexuality flag.
According to him, the LGBTQ+ flag is chastised by the rainbow colours God used as a covenant not to destroy the world in future.
Speaking in an interview monitored by African Editors on Sunday 1 August 2021 in Accra, Mr. Amoaning said “We’ll soon lower the LGBTQ+ because the colours on that flag were used by God as a covenant not to destroy the world”.
Making reference to the judgement by 47 Judges of the world’s highest Human Rights Court at Strasbourg in Europe that homosexuality is not a human right, Mr. Amoaning said “the LGBTQ+ come has lost the debate on both legal and health grounds“.
“For health, you have no idea the amount of money the Christian community is spending on the gay people who are suffering from all kinds of complication”.
Former CEO of Volta River Authority Dr. Charles Wereko-Brobbey has predicted that the LGBTQ+ Bill currently before parliament will be challenged at the Supreme Court of Ghana if it is passed into law.
The LGBTQ+ Bill is set to be laid before parliament on Monday 2 August 2021.
But, even before the bill laid in the floor of parliament, Dr. Wereko-Brobbey said the law will be challenged at the Supreme Court if the bill in its current form is passed into law.
“I know that this bill will be challenged at the Supreme Court after passage and judges will have opportunity to interpret whether it’s consistent with our laws. That’s will come because I think section 104 is inconsistent with the constitution “.
Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon. Alban Bagbin has warned critics to stop threatening MPs who introduced the bill and promised that it will be passed into law by the end of 2021.
But, Dr. Wereko-Brobbey is of the view that the Speaker erred in taking a categorical position on the bill before it is laid.
“The Speaker is supposed to be neutral on all matters”.
