The past week has seen an intense debate on almost all platforms on the acceptance or otherwise of gay rights in Ghana.

From social media to radio and then to TV, the discussion has seen many diverse opinions among Ghanaians following certain comments made by President Akufo-Addo.

In an interview with Aljazeera, the President is quoted as saying that gay rights “are bound to happen” – a comment that has brought him under scrutiny from the opposition NDC and other Ghanaians.

A lot has been said since then, but what does the Bible actually say about homosexuality?

Here are five Bible quotes that boldly state that Ghana should do away with homosexuality:

1.     1 Corinthians 6:9, 10

Do not be misled. Those who are sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, men who submit to homosexual acts, men who practice homosexuality, thieves, greedy people, drunkards, revilers, and extortioners will not inherit God’s Kingdom.

2.     Colossians 3:5

Deaden, therefore, your body members+ that are on the earth as respects sexual immorality,* uncleanness, uncontrolled sexual passion,+ hurtful desire, and greediness, which is idolatry..

3.     Leviticus 18:22

You must not lie down with a male in the same way that you lie down with a woman.

4.     Romans 1:24, 26

God, in keeping with the desires of their hearts, . . . gave them over to uncontrolled sexual passion, for their females changed the natural use of themselves into one contrary to nature.

5.       Mathew 19: 4-6

In reply he said: “Have you not read that the one who created them from the beginning made them male and female+ 5  and said: ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and his mother and will stick to his wife, and the two will be one flesh’?+ 6  So that they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has yoked together, let no man put apart.”
