He says the church and traditional leaders will continue to fight any government that goes for money and seeks to legalize homosexuality.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo had told Jane Dutton on Talk to Al Jazeera, legalisation of homosexuality is not on his government’s agenda.
But the status of gays in the country could change if there is a groundswell of pressure for that to be done, he said.
Pressure groups, religious organizations and political opponents have taken issues with the president over his comments.
But Rev. Dr. Opuni-Frimpong says marriage is owned by the family so no pastor has the right to bless any marriage unless the families of the couple have sanctioned it.
He is therefore calling on pastors not to take it upon themselves and bless marriages without family approval.
