CCG’s position on the Promotion of Proper Human Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill

The Christian Council of Ghana(CCG) has keenly followed and participated in the debate on “The Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill, 2021.” The Council wishes to state unequivocally, that it supports the Bill and prays that it will see the light of day. We are ready and willing to participate in the consultative process to make the Bill worthwhile.

In our previous statements on LGBTQI+, the Council has stated the position of God on marriage and homosexuality. We wish to again affirm that marriage is a union between a man and a woman (Genesis 2:24). Homosexuality is therefore a redefinition of the family system other than what God intended when He created humankind. It has no space for procreation and nurturing of children with the love of a father and mother. Homosexuality is an act of perversion and abomination and it attracts God’s wrath (Leviticus 18:22; 20:13; Genesis 19:1-28).

Moreover, all the ethnic groups in our country frown on homosexual unions and relations. In Ghana, marriage is between a man and a woman. We cannot discard our unique family value system for the so-called human rights of a few. It is important to protect our family values, which is the foundation of our nation. Homosexual unions therefore do not have a place in our Ghanaian family value system.

We, the CCG therefore call on all Ghanaians to throw their weight behind “The Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill, 2021.” We are calling on Ghanaians to support the process through prayers and any other means that may be required. Let us protect the good family system that we have inherited from our forebears.

The CCG will continue to pray for the good of the nation. May the Lord bless us all.
