Which section of Anti-LGBTQI+ Bill should be rejected?- Sam George quizzes Bishop Mullaly

The Ningo Prampram MP, Sam George has disagreed with the leader of the Anglican Church in London, Rt. Reverend Sarah Mullaly over her call for the rejection of the Anti-LGBTQI+ bill before Parliament.

Bishop Mullaly in a tweet on Monday, October 26, 2021, said, “Ghana’s proposed anti- LGBT legislation is unacceptable and must be resisted.

“It would promote fear and intolerance, putting the freedom of so many people under threat. We are all love equally by God. My prayers are with the LGBT community in Ghana at this time,” she tweeted.

Responding to the tweet, the MP questioned Bishop Mullaly to provide him with sections of the bill which warrants the bill to be rejected.

“…would you be kind enough to tell me what specifically I the Bill is unacceptable and must be resisted? Have you actually read the Bill yourself? My thoughts & prayers are also with the many young boys who have been sexually exploited by some of your priests,” he quizzed.

The bill has recently generated public discussion with some religious groups calling for its passage while other human rights advocate and academia groups have advocated against the bill.

The ‘Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill 2021’ was submitted to Parliament in June this year.

If passed into law, it would criminalise LGBTQ+ activities and its advocates and jail offenders
