God is love and, so, anything that incites hatred is not of God, musician Kwabena Kwabena has said in defence of the LGBT+ community.
In an Instagram post, he said: “To the men of God who are spewing hate at our queer brothers and sisters.
How do you read your bibles again? I’m very saddened especially realising how much hate we have harboured in our hearts”.
“It’s scary”, he noted, adding: “Decided to remind the clergy and any man of God of their duty as stated in the Bible”.
“Ephesians chapter 4. God is love so anything that incites hate is not from God”.

A few days ago, Danquah Institute founder Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko also urged Ghanaians not to hate gays.
“You don’t have to be pro-gay to appreciate their situation. You only have to be human”, President Nana Akufo-Addo’s cousin said, cautioning: “Let us be careful and not generate an intense hate campaign against homosexuals. You can speak for the law and ‘culture’ minus hate”.
Meanwhile, Mr Alex Kofi Donkor, Director, LGBT+ Rights Ghana, has said the LGBT+ community is not forcing itself on Ghanaians and has urged the country to stop hating its members.
“Forcing ourselves into a society? I don’t think so”, Mr Donkor told Kofi Oppong Asamoah on the Class Morning Show on Monday, 22 February 2021.
According to him, “LGBTQ people are the ordinary Ghanaians, so, nobody is forcing anything on anyone”.
“If anything at all”, he noted, “it is homophobia that is being projected, it is hate that is being projected at us and, so, for us, I believe that it is important for us to look at the hate, the homophobia, the discrimination that is being projected at us and then find a solution to this challenge”.
A few days ago, the National Security Secretariat shut down a community space recently opened for the LGBT+ people at Ashongman in Accra following intense outcry from religious bodies and some civil society organisations.
