    Anglican Church of Ghana Threatened By Archbishop Of Canterbury Over Support For Anti-LGBT Bill

    Most Reverend Justin Welby who is the head of the global Anglican Church has disclosed that the Anglican Church in Ghana should not support the Anti-LGBTQ bill

    Archbishop of Canterbury has sent a strong warning to the Anglican Church in Ghana that, they should not support the Anti-LGBTQ bill.

    According to Welby, if the Anglican Church of Ghana supports the Anti-LGBTQ bill then they will evacuate them from the Anglican Communion

    He declared on Tuesday, 26th October 2021 that, the Anglican church in Ghana must accept the LGBTQ+ people because they are children of God.

    When you take a critical look at the statement made by the bishop, it seems all of their churches have accepted it and now they want the Anglican Church in Ghana to also accept the LGBTQ+ and its related activities.

    Read the post below:

    “I am gravely concerned by the draft anti-LGBTQ+ Bill due to be debated by the Ghanaian parliament. I will be speaking with the Archbishop of Ghana in the coming days to discuss the Anglican Church of Ghana’s response to the Bill,” the statement read.

    “In Resolution I:10, the Anglican Communion also made a commitment ‘to assure [LGBTQ+ people] that they are loved by God and that all baptized, believing and faithful persons, regardless of sexual orientation, are full members of the Body of Christ.’”

    “Meanwhile on numerous occasions, the Primates of the Anglican Communion have stated their opposition to the criminalization of same-sex attracted people: most recently, and unanimously, in the communiqué of the 2016 Primates’ Meeting.

    “I remind our brothers and sisters in the Anglican Church of Ghana of these commitments.

    “We are a global family of churches, but the mission of the church is the same in every culture and country: to demonstrate, through its actions and words, God’s offer of unconditional love to every human being through Jesus Christ.
