Anti-gay bill: Lawrence Tetteh to embark on one-man demo to Jubilee House


An international evangelist, Rev. Dr Lawrence Tetteh, has declared his intention to march to the Jubilee House, the seat of government, to demand an expedited assent to the Human Sexual Rights and Family Values Act, 2024, popularly called the anti-gay bill.

He said the legal processes stampeding Parliament from transmitting the bill to the presidency for assent after its passage on February 28, this year, and the silence of the voices of conscience, was inimical to the protection of the country’s values.

Again, Rev. Dr Tetteh, who is the President of the Worldwide Miracle Outreach (WMO), called out the leadership of the religious community, saying that it was disheartening that religious clerics “with big titles and names” were dead silent on the anti-gay bill.

“I will march to the Jubilee House. I think it is about time we make politicians know that we voted them into power. The cowardice that Christian leaders and religious leaders have been reduced to is a shame and I am embarrassed by some of our clergymen.

“As much as we are interested in our titles; in the big titles; and who we are and how long we have served, I am yet to hear certain people speak against these manners. For me, that is a shame, and so it starts from my home too,” he stressed.

The economist and clergyman stated this at a press conference held in Accra last Friday (May 10) as part of his 31-day National Prayer Rally on the theme “This Nonsense Must Stop”.

Parliament approved the Human Sexual Rights and Family Values Act, 2024 on February 24, this year.
