Ken Ofori-Atta on Ghana’s anti-LGBTQ+ bill

Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta has said every human being, including people of the LGBTQ+, is created of God and has God’s image in them and, so, he finds it “difficult” that people’s sexuality should be criminalised as Ghana’s anti-LGBTQ+ bill seeks to do.Asked for his position on the controversial bill, Mr Ofori-Atta said:

“It’s a very complex issue and really, for me, it’s quite kind of biblical, in a sense, which says that God created us in His own image – now whether it’s man or woman, it’s a different issue”.“So, in each person is God’s image.

I can’t begin, therefore, to make judgments on the person”, he told Paul Adom-Otchere on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana programme on Thursday, 18 November 2021, adding:

“I may not like what I may determine to be a sin but as long as God’s image is in that person and I know that thief or whoever was forgiven in the last minute on the cross –so, for me, I guess I find it difficult on the issues of criminalisation when I know all of us are born in the image of God”.
