“We must stop gays from ruling Ghana in future” – Christian leader Lawrence Senye in homophobic message
The President of the Ashanti Regional Christian Council of Ghana Youth Ministry, Mr. Lawrence Senyo, has said should Ghanaians not wake up, gays would handle the day-to-day administration of the country in future. According to the youth leader whose words fuel homophobia, he said, “Let us rise and build the church and Ghana. It is our prayer, as a Council, that God Almighty directs the executives of the Methodist youth, or the executives to the right direction and right task ahead. Time is coming that homosexuals and gays will be leaders of Ghana, because we (Christians) are shying away from dominion.” Senyo made this disclosure in his message at the 15 Biennial Conference of the Kumasi Methodist Youth Fellowship Conference which held recently at the Independent Hall of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
