Earthquakes Happen Because Gay People Have Sex, Muslim Cleric Says
Speaking in an interview, Mallam Abass Mahmud said “Allah gets annoyed when males engage in sexual encounter and such disgusting encounter causes earthquake”.
He is the latest in the country to join the list of radical thinkers who believe consenting homosexual relationships are the cause of natural disasters.
Mallam Mahmud is a preacher from the country’s conservative Zongo community and made the comment in an attempt to justify increasing violence against LGBT people.
According to him the destruction of the ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by Allah was as the result of homosexuality and he called for a holy war against gays and lesbians in the country, particularly in Muslim dominated suburbs.
“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,” he reportedly said.
According to News Ghana, a number of homosexuals have been forced to flee their homes, due to fear of attacks by radical groups.
