The General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God Church Ghana, Rev. Prof. Paul Frimpong Manso has described as satanic, a move by the Ghana Education Service to introduce a sex education programme in basic schools across the country.
According to him, GES’s introduction of the Comprehensive Sexuality Education, with the ultimate objective of equipping pupils to know and experience their sexuality is a “Satanic Comprehensive Engagement” because it will have adverse effects on the children.
“Children are very curious so if we are going to teach them the CSE, which I call Comprehensive Satanic Engagement we will be treading on dangerous lines”, he said.
The man of God, who was contributing to discussions on the subject Monday morning on Okay FM’s Ade Akye Abia further described the move as an abomination, which should not be allowed to add up to the numerous factors effecting the collapse of this country.
“It is an abomination that can cause the collapse of a nation. It is something that if we do not check in time we will shall regret. The reason why I am saying this is because, already, galamsey has destroyed our lands, corruption and graft has also destroyed a lot, it is left with just the citizenry,” he added.
He called for total resistance and collective rejection of the CSE saying it is an agenda by some sponsors seeking to conquer us through deliberate destruction of our culture and religion.
“We must resist it, we should resist anything that will destroy the future and the moral fibre of the country. Over a year ago I read that if you want to conquer a country conquer their culture and religion. So they are conquering our culture, they are destroying our moral values.”
The introduction of the new CSE course as part of the curriculum for students beginning from age four, by the GES has caused a sharp divide among Ghanaians, with religious bodies and leaders mounting the strongest line of resistance.
On social media, discussions have been heated, with users giving various grounds of defence or rejection.
Award-winning comedian Derick Kobina Bonney (DKB), took to his Twitter account to share how he believes the new course may affect the way Kindergarten school children recite alphabet rhymes.
