Sam Nartey George, the Member of Parliament for the Ningo Prampram constituency, has reacted to an attack by Rev. Jide Macaulay, a Nigerian gay priest.
Rev. Jide, in reaction to a post by Rightify Ghana, an organization that advocates for the rights of the LGBTQ+ community in Ghana, accused the politician of lacking intelligence in human sexuality.
“Lead sponsor of the anti-LGBTQ bill, Hon. Sam George, falsely claims that the LGBTQI community in Ghana was asking for same-sex marriage; says what they do in their bedroom, they now want to “shove it down my throat and socialize my children,’’ the organization wrote
In reaction to this, Rev. Jide tweeted, “Sam George lacks the basic intelligence to understand human sexuality. He is a failed politician, a national disgrace, and a threat to national security, and he needed hatred to boost his career. His explanation makes no sense.’’
“LGBTQ people are not asking for marriage in Ghana; they are asking for protection from violence, the safety of life, the right to assemble, enjoyment of lives, and the highest standard of healthcare,’’ Rev. Jide tweeted.
Characteristic of the politician, he has hit back at the man of God for alleging that he is a threat to national security.
“Look at this failed human being attempting to call me out,’’ Sam George stated in a tweet sighted by 1Family Radio.
“Go and deal with your HIV infection, which is a result of your homosexuality. Like they say in your home country, Nigeria, you have no reach! Off you go!’’ he added.
