It seems getting a tattoo can cause homosexuality

A leading spiritualist claims tattoos can influence people to become LGBT, prostitutes or alcoholics.

Mallam Ya Wadudu warned against the harmful effects of tattoos, which he says can cause ‘homosexuality and prostitution’. He made the comments as he attacked “the harmful effects of foreign cultures” on Ghanaian society, as more people within the country opt for a less conservative approach to body art and life.

The religious leader rallied against self-decoration, saying there could be “unexpected consequences” for people who choose to get tattooed.

“The snakes, lions, scorpions, frogs and other animal symbols they put on themselves all have spiritual meanings,” Wadudu told The Mirror. “Those who put the symbols on their bodies have to be delivered from the influence of the spirits in the symbols.”

Wadudu said that getting a tattoo of such symbols – which he says represent the devil – could cause a person to be possessed by evil spirits.

“If you go for spiritual power and you refused to honour your part of the process, the deities will not only vent their anger on you alone but the whole community as well which sometimes result in the accident we see,” he said.

He added that such behaviour would lead to homosexuality, alcoholism, prostitution or theft.

Earlier this year, a lecturer in Ghana prophesied that churches risk “being dominated by homosexuals” if the clergy fails to stage a “blistering crusade” against same sex marriage in Ghana. Law lecturer Moses Foh-Amoaning said the “dormant posture” of the Ghanaian clergy and the likes will see the “houses of God being ruled by evil homosexuals”.

“Why is the clergy mute?” he blasted. “I do not like the situation where our pastors are mute about gayism. If they do not take care, their big cathedrals, churches and other places of meeting will be filled with homosexuals.”

    “gayism” “homosexualism” Arrrgh! These words are slowly killing me. People are really scared of the visibility of gay people and will like to attribute everything bad to being gay. Get ready folks, very soon gay people will be the cause of global warming.

    Well I think there’s a symbolic meaning and spiritual side to some tattoos ,as people in the occult always get some form of tattoo. Also I’m superstitious enough to believe that getting say a snake tattooed on you isn’t exactly the wisest of things seeing as most ppl consider snakes an evil omen.

    But saying that all tattoos cause stuff like homosexuality, is just ridiculous. I worry when I see stupid Muslims like this, because they end up blowing themselves up and killing others in the process

    I don’t know about demons or possession, but I know it’s real. He is very wrong about body ink being a cause of homosexuality but He may be right about one thing… Demon possession through the inks… but then again u could be possessed by food,water, dress, ornaments and the whole lot…. So there is absolutely nothing new with what he said
