Full Text: Position of Eastern Media for Development (EM4D) on LGBTQI
The Eastern Media for Development wishes to state its official position on the raging debate and controversies on the alleged opening of an office by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Intersex Right (LGBTQI) movement in Ghana.
The EM4D views the action by the LGBTQI movement as an affront to our long-cherished religious values, customs and traditions as well as the laws of Ghana. The actions of this unknown movement are also completely at variance with the laws of God as spelt out in both the Holy Bible and Quran concerning God’s plan to the creation and the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman as ordained by God.
Whilst we reaffirm our support to the national coalition for proper human sexual rights and family values and other like-minded groups and their positions on this matter, we call on the government to officially state its position without any equivocation on this new development.
In as much as we condemn the activities of LGBTQI, classifying it as illegal we call for the immediate closure of the alleged office opened by the LGBTQI in Ghana and immediately arrest and prosecute any individual(s) or group(s) behind this development for breach of the law and potential threat to peace.
We again call on the government of Ghana to immediately summon all foreign diplomats who allegedly participated in the opening of the LGBTQI offices in Ghana to explain their violation of the sovereignty of Ghana.
We have no reservations to urge Parliament who is the representatives of the Ghanaian people to as a matter of urgency summon the ministries of interior and foreign affairs to outline the actions taken in relation to this matter to protect the sovereignty and security sanitation of the state of Ghana.
Eastern Media for Development which is a coalition of media personnel in the Eastern region with a common agenda of advocating for the overall development of the region without any hesitation, call for comprehensive legislation to deal with the LGBTQI issues in Ghana once and for all to settle any future controversies.
In conclusion, the Eastern Media for Development is very resolute in its stance against the LGBTQI movement and its activities in Ghana and is standing firm with all other stakeholders on this matter with the hope that government would take concrete steps to reassure Ghanaians of their unwillingness to succumb to pressure from some notable Western powers to sell out our cherished values and to safeguard the future of our children from a perverse generation of vampires scheming to destroy us.
Long live EM4D
Long live Ghana
