The spokesperson of the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Aremeyaw Shaibu has said former Metro TV news anchor and advocates for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexuals, Transgender and Queer Individuals (LGBTQI) in the country must be assisted out of the practice.
According to him, the broadcast journalist was not born a gay, however, certain experiences might have drove him into the practice hence the need for him to be helped to return to his original form.
He explained his new life in a religious point of view was sinful and undermines God’s purpose for man.
“I can appreciate the problem with Ignatius, where he came from when he was born, he was not born to be gay but after some experience, he begun to feel this, so that feeling , that feeling he has in him is what we say from a religious point of view as perverted and that he deserves to be assisted. I mean he had drifted to a domain of life which is sinful from a point of view and he needs to be assisted out”.
He noted persons like Ignatius needs prayers from all and sundry adding that the practice was in opposition to the very purpose for which God created sex.
“We have to pray for such all people who have become enslave to the forces of the canal selves to the point that they can get to the point of same sex which undermines the very dignity which God associate with sex”.
The spokesperson to the Chief Imam said Islam unequivocally oppose the practice and joined calls for the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the Ministry of Gender , Children and Social Protection as well as the Ministry of Culture and Religious Affairs to speak on the matter and also close supposed offices of the community in Ghana.
