Politicians give audience to gay agenda because of the financial benefits - Prophet

The General Overseer of the Alabaster International Ministry, Prophet Dr. Kofi Oduro, has posited that countries that legalize same sex do so because of the financial benefits attached to it.

The prophet in an interview with Kwame Tutu on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm said, homosexuality is ungodly and an act that has serious medical implications.

He was reacting to comments made by Theresa May, the UK Prime Minister that, her country will help Ghana decriminalize same-sex relationship. The UK Prime at the ongoing Commonwealth nations head of states meeting said, the UK should be blamed for criminalizing same-sex relationship in colonized states.

Her comments received widespread contamination from the public. Reacting to the issue, the prophet said politicians give audience to such demands because they get financial benefits. ‘’Homosexuality is a detestable act. God frowns on homosexuality.

Politicians do not speak the truth and homosexuality comes with a lot of money to any nation that accepts it. They [politicians] should tell me it is a lie. The reason why our politicians will give audience is the revenue that is attached to it,’’ he said.

He alleged that South Africa and some nations received billions of dollars after decriminalizing same sex relationship but has cautioned Ghana not to legalize homosexuality otherwise the wrath of God will come upon us. Meanwhile, Information Minister, Dr. Mustapha Hamid, has described homosexuality as un-Ghanaian and against the cultural and religious beliefs.

He said at a press conference on Thursday that, no foreign nation can impose on Ghana the need to legalize homosexuality. Dr. Mustapha Hamid, said ‘’we are uniquely Ghanaian…The law is based on custom and tradition…So the custom of the land is what factions law.

So people or the law cannot be divorced from the cultures and traditions of the people. So as far as our cultures and traditions are concerned, gayism and lesbianism are un-Ghanaian.’’

He went on to add: ‘’it is difficult to see how foreign interests can impose foreign cultures on us…It is a non issue. The issues of bread and butter which is what I have been responding to, are more critical. The issue of poverty and how we can eradicate it are the matters that concerns developing nations today.

If they’ve gone past the kind of poverty that we have and therefore can afford to talk about other issues, that is fine with them. But for us, we [Ghana] want to stick with the bread and butter issues.’’
