Homosexuality 'lunatic behaviour' – Baako

Homosexuality is a lunatic behaviour, journalist Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jr. has said.

"…When it comes to these things, I am illiberal, I don't think we should do anything to promote that lunatic behaviour, in my candid opinion, it's a personal thing.

"I'm not progressive when it comes to these things. I am highly conservative, I am against it [homosexuality]", the Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper told Samson Lardy Anyenini on Joy FM's news analysis programme Newsfile on Saturday March 19, during a discussion about the Scottish minority MPs' recent boycott of President John Mahama's address to their country's parliament on Thursday 17 March.

The pro-gay Scottish minority MPs' boycott of Mr Mahama's speech was an act to express their displeasure with the Ghanaian president and his country's anti-gay laws.

Ghana's laws do not expressly mention homosexuality but frown on "unnatural carnal knowledge", which is defined as penile penetration of any other part of the body except the vagina. Apart from Ghana's laws, the country's culture also frowns on lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders.
