Ghana Orders the Arrest of All Homosexuals

Ghana anti-gay, ghana homophobic, ghana gay camps, ghana gay holocaust, ghana arrest homosexualsGhana is giving Uganda a run for their money in the Worst Place to be Gay contest. While the “rounding up” of all homosexuals in the country’s western parts isn’t quite Kill the Gays Bill level sensational, it’s hard to ignore the Holocaust parallels here.

Ghana’s Western Region Minister, Paul Evans Aidoo MP has ordered the immediate arrest of all homosexuals in the country’s west.

Aidooo has tasked Ghana’s Bureau of National Investigations and security forces to round up the country’s gay population and has called on landlords and tenants to inform on people they suspect of being homosexuals.

“All efforts are being made to get rid of these people in the society,” he said.

The move by the Minister follows months of campaigning by the Christian Council of Ghana which last week called on Ghanaians not to vote for any politician who believes in the rights of homosexuals.

Muslims and Christians in the Western Region have been staging protests ever since a local media report claimed there were around 8000 homosexuals and lesbians in the district

What happens next here? What does a nation that successfully demonizes an entire swath of people to the extent that their neighbors are willing to participate in the herding and arrests of them do next?

In other words, once all of the country’s homosexuals are rounded up together, what does Ghana do with them?

    Next, concentration camps. Then gas chambers. Then mass burial. What American citizen could tolerate this?

  • How can this be allowed?  Are we still living under Stalin?  Now you can arrested and treated like a criminal just because you LOVE.  There has been no crime here, No display of aggression just simply because they LOVE who they Love,  They are being treated as cattle and being “round up”  shame on you Ghana, SHAME ON YOU

    I wish people would quit doing things in the name of Christ that are only about hate.  Shame on them.

  • So my fear is what happens after they round them up?  I know someone there and haven’t been able to reach him and fear that he is in jail now and fear for his safety if not his life.  What is the person is a citizen of another country then what?
