    Govt bans International Homo Conference

    Homosexuality, lesbianism are offences under the laws of Ghana

    Accra, Aug. 31, GNA - The government on Thursday banned an International Gays and Lesbians Conference, which had been scheduled for Accra in the third week of September, saying it would not condone any activity that violently offended the culture and morality of the people.

    "Government would like to make it absolutely clear that it shall not permit the proposed conference of International Gays and Lesbians to take place anywhere in Ghana," a statement signed by Mr Kwame Bartels, Minister of Information and National Orientation said.

    "Government does not and shall not condone any such activity which violently offends the culture, morality and heritage of the entire people of Ghana," he added.

    :terrific: Now if only African people worldwide would apply this attitude to other destructive foreign practices, customs, ideologies, etc. For example, chopping off arms, rape, war, patriarchy, sexism, materialism, individualism over communalism, religion over spirituality, upper class over lower class, and all the other crazy mess.

    Good question Panafrica. Wrong er, continent. Although maybe they wanted to include gay Africans who are obviously ignored for the most part

    Looking at the small picture, it's part of their political and cultural assault on people of Afrikan descent, whom they view as the most vulnerable holdouts in their campaign to convince the people of the world that women & men sleeping together, kissing each other, and putting their mouths on each others' sex organs, and men putting their penises in the mouths and anuses of other men in order to have an orgasm is natural and normal.

    Looking at the bigger picture, I think it's part of the centuries old campaign of white europeans and their offspring attempting to obliterate traditional Afrikan culture and remake it and Afrikans in their own image (in this case, to make it & them homosexual friendly). They've done it in Afrika with the institutions of religion, education, economics, marriage & family, etc. This is just the latest installment in their 500 year old war against Afrikan culture and Afrikan people. This time the white folks happen to be homo-lesbians, but it's the same racist and cultural arrogance and intolerance.

    I think they purposely chose Ghana KNOWING in advance that they wouldn't be allowed to hold it there. This sets the stage for the vilification of the government of Ghana as being "homophobic", which in turn will likely lead to attempts to hurt the economy of Ghana through future boycotts with the hope that the people of Ghana will suffer so much that they will get rid of the current govt. Once (or if) that's accomplished, these same homo-lesbians will then try to influence the next selection of govt leaders to make sure that they're homosexual friendly, at which point they'll hold annual conferences in Ghana. This they hope will lend credence to their false claim of an Afrikan origin of homosexuality. If that were to happen, so they hope, then they will have compromised the strongest element of resistance to their insanity within the black community: the cultural nationalist/Africentric element.
