You Are Deformed If You Are Gay - Prof. Ocquaye

Reverend Prof. Aaron Mike Ocquaye, Speaker of Parliament
Speaker of Parliament, Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye has described as “mentally deformed” persons entangled in acts of homosexuality.

According to him, the sexual orientation of such individuals bares a lot of questions withstanding the incessant calls for the legalization of same-sex marriage in the country which is widely opposed by some section of the Ghanaian populace.

“Deformity takes many forms, it can mental deficiency, physical deficiency, psychological deficiency. We are lucky very often if we don’t deficiencies in a glaring form or the other and that is why I say if a person is found to be deficient it cannot be turned in to a human right.”

“Psychotic inclinations are a deficiency, pedophile inclinations are a deficiency and in fact, there are people who are like that”, he stressed during an interaction with Paul Adom-Otchere on Good Evening Ghana Thursday, 10 May 2018.

Professor Oquaye noted that homosexuality cannot be categorized as normal and be given a thumbs up for its legalization if the number of persons involved in the act continues to soar every day.

He, therefore, called for an early solution to curb the situation which apparently seems to distort God’s creation.

“The medical way of treating it is by medication sometimes that helps or if it is a psychotic deficiency then it’s dealt with in terms of psychology and that’s why mental medicine tells us there is a way of treating people which is not by medication but by psychosis and if it is spiritual then we deal with it by way of prayers and other things that will take you out of that situation for which you need to be redeemed,” he said.

He further urged campaigners in the guise of fighting for their human right to desist from mounting pressure on the government.

Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye has on several occasions threatened to stage a walkout should Parliament consider any bill in legalizing same-sex marriage in Ghana.

The United Nation’s Special Rapporteur on Extreme Poverty and Human Rights, Prof. Philip Alston some few weeks ago described Ghana’s Speaker of Parliament, Prof. Mike Oquaye, as deluded over his comments on gay rights.

United Kingdom's (UK) Prime Minister, Theresa May recently urged Commonwealth nations including Ghana to overhaul “outdated" anti-gay laws and said the U.K. "deeply regrets" its role in the legacy of violence and discrimination.

Theresa May drew cheers and applause when she told delegates at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) that "nobody should face discrimination or persecution because of who they are or who they love".

But to Prof. Oquaye, homosexuality is against his Christian faith and will not be part of any agenda to legalize same-sex marriage.
