Ghana’s State-Owned Newspaper Urges Citizens To Reject LGBT Rights

05/21/2018 | New Now Next

Ghana state run newspaper the Ghanaian Times has published an editorial urging its citizens to fight against LGBT rights in the African country, where gay sex is punishable by up to three years in prison. The editors bemoan what they call “covert and overt attempts to impose on Ghana certain alien and unacceptable values that are not in tune with our socio-cultural values and religious beliefs.” The article, published today and titled, “Let’s Unite To Reject LGBT,” comes a month after Prime Minister Theresa May (above) expressed regret over the United Kingdom’s role in exporting sodomy laws that criminalize homosexuality. May called on countries in the Commonwealth to overhaul those “outdated” laws during the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London last month, saying “nobody should face discrimination or persecution because of who they are or who they love.”
