The Methodist Church here welcomes gays and lesbians, but not their activities, Superintendent Methodist Minister, Seth Ampadu has stated.
Ampadu made the comments in the face of calls for the buggery law to be reviewed.
Last week, Archbishop Robert Rivas asserted that if the law is distressing and it is not serving its purpose, then it has to be reviewed and updated.
National Security Minister, Hermangild Francis, has also come out in support of a buggery law review.
The Superintendent Minister of the Methodist Church told reporters Tuesday that the church does not hate gays and lesbians.
But he said the church does not support their activities.
“We do not like their activities,” Ampadu explained.
He said the church is there to help and correct them.
He said even if the buggery law is reviewed, the revision should not support wrongdoing.
“If we are going to review the law, we should not review it to encourage, to motivate people to do wrong things,” the Clergyman declared.
“If we are going to review the law that will help those people who are involved in those activities to refrain from that – I have no problem. But if we are going to review the law to support that kind of activity, then there is a problem,” Amadu asserted.
