The Founder and President of the Worldwide Miracle Outreach, Rev. Lawrence Tetteh has described as “unfortunate” the International Community's attempts to force the acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community in Ghana.

“This nonsense cannot be taken to Kuwait, it cannot be taken to Saudi Arabia, it cannot be taken to certain parts of the world. Is it because of poverty that any junk at all should be placed on us?” He asked on GTV's morning show monitored by Theannouncergh.com.

Rev. Lawrence Tetteh's comment follows the International Community's disapproval of Ghana's passage of the Human Sexual Rights and Family Values Bill (Anti-LGBTQ+ bill) on Wednesday, February 28, 2024.

The bill stipulates penalties, including a 6-month to 3-year jail term for individuals engaged in LGBT activities and a 3 to 5-year jail term for promoters and sponsors of such activities.

The United Union, the United States of America, and the American Ambassador to Ghana among many others have argued that the bill is assented to by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will jeopardise Ghana's economy and violate human rights.

But Rev. Lawrence Tetteh said the International Community cannot dictate for Ghana because the country is poor.

“Our cultural values do not accept homosexuality, our traditional norm does not accept it, why should we impose it on our children? Why do we want to destroy our nation” He lamented.
