I don’t mind working with an LGBTQ+ person – Gospel artist MOG Music

Gospel musician Nana Yaw Boakye better known by stage name MOG Music says he doesn’t mind working with an LGBTQI person. The singer told Joy Prime’s Ibrahim Ben-Bako that people in the LGBTQ+ community are just as human as everyone else and need to be loved rather than victimised. “I don’t mind working with an LGBTQ person. They are people that need to be shown love,” he stated. “If we are saying what they are doing is wrong the only way we can correct them is through love. But when we despise them and push them away, it is not going to bring any change, they will still keep on doing what they are doing” he said. MOG Music stated that it is good to embrace members of the LGBTQ+ community. “So when you show them love, you preach the message of Christ as it is to them, it brings them to light,” he added. The conversation of legalizing LGBTQI in Ghana has been ongoing for some time now with some international celebrities like Idris Elba and Naomi Campbell signing a letter in solidarity with the group. Prior to that the police together with the landlord on February 24 stormed and locked the LGBTQ office at Ashongman in Accra in the wake of public discourse over their operations. Pro-gay rights activists in the country argued that the law does not explicitly outlaw the act aside from its criminalisation of unnatural carnal knowledge adding that government must protect their interests as citizens. However, anti-gay rights advocates, National Coalition for Proper Human Sexual Rights and Family Value and religious factions such as the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), National Peace Council, National Chief Imam have further advanced arguments for the government to dispel the ambiguity surrounding the laws on sexuality. In response to the brouhaha, President Akufo-Addo on Saturday, February 27, stated emphatically that same-sex marriage will not be legalised under his Presidency. Source:myjoyonline
