The National Coalition for Proper Human Sexual Rights and Family Values (NCPHSRFV) in Ghana is taking its fight against LGBTQ persons to the next level. The lastest plan features 400 allegedly gay persons taking part in a gay ‘cure’ conversion therapy forum/camp in Ghana. The attendees, who have all repeatedly signed up voluntarily, will receive ‘counselling’ and ‘reformation’ at the anti-gay conference, which has the theme: “Exploring the myths surrounding LGBT rights.”
This plan from The National Coalition for Proper Human Sexual Rights and Family Values (NCPHSRFV), follows their public disapproval for Theresa May’s pro-LGBT+ speech to Commonwealth leaders, an open statement threatening to cause trouble if the Ghanaian government softened it’s anti-gay laws and a prayer and fasting program to spiritually get rid of the gays in Ghana.
Addressing the conversation camp with pride, in a report by PinkNews the organisation’s leader, Moses Foh-Amoaning, said that the “400 men and women voluntarily surrendered themselves and registered with the coalition to undergo counselling after a sexual evangelism programme recently.”
The event will supposedly take place in an undisclosed location in the country. Foh-Amoaning then announced plans to open a ‘Holistic Sexual Therapy Unit’ at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra which will also attempt to ‘cure’ queer people of their sexuality, according to the state-owned Daily Graphic. No mention yet of if this cure would be medically of mentality induced but it looks like the plans for the mass experiment is well on the way. He does mention that religious leaders and people versed in ‘traditional medicine’ would ‘treat’ the gays alongside medical staff.
He also revealed plans to make the law, which currently criminalises homosexuality with a maximum prison term of three years, force queer people to undergo gay ‘conversion’ therapy. Foh-Amoaning said that “a bill known as ‘Who is on the Lord’s Side’ will then be introduced in Parliament for subsequent passage into law.
“We will make our punishment corrective instead of punitive.”
The head of the NCPHSRFV has a long history of anti-gay campaigning, having previously insisted gay people shouldn’t have rights and that pro-LGBT+ activism was a form of neocolonialism. Foh-Amoaning has also stated that “the anus was not created for sex” and compared it female genital mutilation.
His group campaigns against any political party which supports legalising homosexuality in the country. In 2015, he said that churches would end up being “dominated by homosexuals” if the clergy didn’t stage a “blistering crusade” against homosexuality.
The law lecturer also said the “dormant posture” of the Ghanaian clergy would see the “houses of God being ruled by evil homosexuals.”
