“Gay-ism Causes Earthquakes and Disgusts Allah” – Ghanaian Muslim Cleric Claims

A Muslim cleric in Ghana has said sex between gay couples “disgusts Allah” and is responsible for earthquakes.

Mallam Abass Mahmud said in an interview: “Allah gets annoyed when males engage in sexual encounter and such disgusting encounter causes earthquake.”

He also said Allah destroyed the ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrah ‘as the result of homesexuality’.

His comments follow reports of heightened hostility among Zongo communities in Kumasi and the capital Accra towards homosexual relationships.

A local news station reported that a number of gay men have fled their homes because they were ‘afraid to disclose their sexual preferences for fear of attacks’.

According to the Daily Mail, Mahmud added: “Should we allow such a shame to continue in our communities against holy teachings? Certainly no, and we are very happy to chase away such idiots from our Zongo communities.”

The British Government’s travel advice for Ghana warns: “Although there is a small gay community, there is no ‘scene’ and most Ghanaians don’t accept that such activity exists’.

News Ghana reported that Muslim youths in the communities are known to have created special task forces to fight what they describe as the importation of “white man’s culture”.

Homosexuality is illegal in 34 of Africa’s 56 states, according to the International Gay and Lesbian Association.

LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) people here often become victims of abuse, many of them flee the country to avoid reprisal for their sexual preferences.

Many African leaders claim that homosexuality was brought into the continent from other parts of the world. Most scholars nevertheless believe that homosexuality has long been a part of various African cultures.
