Dr. Lawrence Tetteh, The Founder and President of Worldwide Miracle Outreach, Dr. Lawrence Tetteh, has emerged as a vocal critic of his fellow religious leaders’ silence regarding the contentious Anti-LGBTQ+ Bill. Expressing deep disappointment, Dr. Tetteh denounced what he described as “cowardice” among his fellow clergy, particularly in light of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s delay to sign the bill into law.

In a bold stance against this inertia, Dr. Tetteh has pledged to lead a protest march to the Jubilee House if the President fails to assent to the LGBTQ+ bill, contingent upon its approval by the Supreme Court. It’s high time we reminded politicians of the power we wield as voters, he declared passionately. The silence and inaction of Christian and religious leaders is disgraceful. I’m ashamed of the complacency displayed by some of our clergy.

He emphasized the urgent need for leaders across various religious denominations to break their silence and take a stand against what he perceives as moral injustice. This isn’t just about titles or reputations; it’s about standing up for what’s right, Dr. Tetteh asserted. The responsibility lies not only with clergy but also with religious leaders, from the Chief Imam’s household to the highest ranks of Christian councils.

As the standoff between the Executive and Legislative branches of government over the bill persists, Dr. Tetteh’s call to action gains momentum. Parliament’s approval of the Human Sexual Rights and Family Values Act, 2024, marked a significant turning point, criminalizing LGBTQ+ activities and associated advocacy and funding. However, legal challenges from individuals like Richard Dela Sky and Gender Activist Dr. Amanda Odoi have complicated the bill’s implementation, prompting a crucial adjournment by the Supreme Court.

The adjournment, as ordered by Chief Justice Gertrude Torkornoo, reflects the intricacies surrounding the legal battle, with both plaintiffs and defendants striving to present their cases effectively.

Ultimately, the debate surrounding the Anti-LGBTQ+ Bill served as a catalyst for soul-searching within Ghanaian society, prompting individuals and institutions alike to reckon with their values and priorities.
