Outspoken Superintendent Minister of the Methodist Church here, Seth Ampadu, has hit out at homosexuality in the society, describing it as evil.
He spoke during an Ash Wednesday service at the Castries Methodist Church on the theme Christian Conduct in a Society.
“Today homosexuality has become fashion in our society today,” the Methodist Minister asserted.
He recalled driving a few days ago and seeing two men “putting their hands on each other – the back.”
“Like husband and wife,” Ampadu asserted.
He lamented that people see nothing wrong with that.
“Some of them are Christians,” the Methodist Minister observed.
But he said some persons engaging in such acts are not ashamed for people to see that they are homosexuals.
“They don’t care,” he exclaimed.
“Let me say that those acts destroy families; they destroy communities,” Ampadu declared.
“Even though as Christians we love such people, we welcome them, but we do not condone that kind of practice – it is evil,” the Clergyman stated.
He explained that the task of Christians is to preserve, reconcile and add taste, giving meaning where there is no meaning and hope where there is none in the society.
“We are to promote life and growth. We are to bring life to our communities and our nation at large. God has chosen us to do that job – to liberate people from darkness, death, sin and give them eternal life through the power of the holy spirit,” Ampadu stated.
He explained that God wants Christians to be the catalysts to bring ‘wholeness’ to their communities.
