Hundreds of gay people in Ghana to be “treated” for their homosexuality

Hundreds of gay people in Ghana to be “treated” for their homosexuality

Around 400 people will reportedly take part in a gay ‘cure’ therapy forum in Ghana.

The attendees, who have all allegedly signed up voluntarily, will receive ‘counseling’ and ‘reformation’ at the anti-gay conference, which has the theme: “Exploring the myths surrounding LGBT rights.”

The National Coalition for Proper Human Sexual Rights and Family Values (NCPHSRFV), which is running the forum, said in April that Prime Minister Theresa May’s pro-LGBT+ speech to Commonwealth leaders was part of a Western plan to reduce the continent’s population.

The organization’s leader, Moses Foh-Amoaning (pictured above), said that the “400 men and women voluntarily surrendered themselves and registered with the coalition to undergo counseling after a sexual evangelism programme recently.”

The event will take place in an undisclosed location in the country.

Foh-Amoaning then announced plans to open a ‘Holistic Sexual Therapy Unit’ at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra which will also attempt to ‘cure’ queer people of their sexuality, according to the state-owned Daily Graphic.

He said that religious leaders and people versed in ‘traditional medicine’ would ‘treat’ people alongside medical staff. He also revealed plans to make the law, which currently criminalises homosexuality with a maximum prison term of three years, force queer people to undergo gay ‘conversion’ therapy.

Foh-Amoaning said that a bill known as ‘Who is on the Lord’s Side’ will then be introduced in Parliament for subsequent passage into law.

“We will make our punishment corrective instead of punitive,” he said.

The head of the NCPHSRFV has a long history of anti-gay campaigning, having previously insisted gay people shouldn’t have rights and that pro-LGBT+ activism was a form of neocolonialism. Foh-Amoaning has also stated that “the anus was not created for sex” and compared it female genital mutilation. His group campaigns against any political party which supports legalizing homosexuality in the country. In 2015, he said that churches would end up being “dominated by homosexuals” if the clergy didn’t stage a “blistering crusade” against homosexuality. The law lecturer said the “dormant posture” of the Ghanaian clergy would see the “houses of God being ruled by evil homosexuals.”

Earlier this month, the country’s President Nana Akufo-Addo said he had “no plans” to change the country’s laws on homosexuality. This represented a disappointing shift from the President’s comments last year, when he said that the legalization of homosexuality in Ghana was “bound to happen” eventually. He rowed back his position in a speech to the 2018 Synod of the Global Evangelical Church, insisting that he would not support such a change in the law.

    They already know the cure is dead on arrival. That’s why they are still busy talking about their grandiose plans, looking for religious coalitions for their supposed cure and seeking legislations to force people to go for it.
    If the cure is an effective one, what we should be hearing by now is “oh look! Mr. Queen Bee has been cured! He is now a womanizer. See?”

    Ndi ala.

      😂 Richie, I would go there to meet my lifetime partner! Poor guys, gay’s should be thought self-love and acceptance. All these conversion shit will worsen their plights! I hope they accept themselves after the therapy, incurable sexuality, nothing changes!
