The General Overseer of the Sheepfold Ministry, Rev Gideon Titi-Ofei, has thrown his support behind the call by the Christian Council that politicians declare their stance on homosexuality, a practice he says is a threat to the future of the nation.
But, while condemning the practice, Rev. Titi-Ofei, who is also Secretary of the Association of Charismatic and Christian Churches, said homosexuals deserve the love and help of Christians, not condemnation. “God loves sinners but not sin,” he emphasized.
He has therefore urged politicians to be strong and outlaw the practice of homosexuality in the country. He has also charged Ghanaians to demand that their political leaders vigorously condemn homosexuality ahead of the 2012 general elections.
“I believe that politicians must have the moral authority and stick their necks out and say this is where I stand on issues of morality. I believe that in the 2012 elections we as Christian leaders must demand from our political leaders their commitment to moral issues. We need to push that agenda strongly” he told listeners of the Citi Breakfast Show on July 19, 2011.
Rev. Titi-Ofei described the act of homosexuality as a threat to national security, explaining that if men married other men, in the near future procreation will end and there would no people to run the affairs of the country and the continent at large.
“It is a whole threat to national security…you are here because your father decided to marry a woman and in 25 years your son would be contributing to national development. I am here because my father chose to marry a woman…if all of us begin to marry the same sex, in the next 20 years, who will take this country to the next level?” he asked.
Rev Titi-Ofei said homosexuals are victims of some form of demonic influence and the public must take steps to help exorcise such demonic spirits influencing them.
Speaking on the issue of the human rights of homosexuals, the seasoned man of God said human right activists support homosexuality “intellectually” but abhor the act of homosexuality deep in their hearts, and would not willing allow any of their relations to indulge in such an unholy act.
The Christian Council of Ghana, at Press Conference on Monday July 18, 2011 condemned homosexuality and charged leaders of the various political parties to publicly declare their position on the practice.
