The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) has branded the controversial Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) program as “Comprehensive Satanic Engagement.”
GPCC wants the programme withdrawn entirely from the Ghana Education Service (GES) curriculum for basic schools.
There is intense pressure on the Ministry of Education and the GES to withdraw the program which critics consider as a subtle attempt to sexualize children and indoctrinate them into embracing homosexuality as a normal way of life.
The calls have deepened after the GES and the Ministry of Education gave contradictory explanations on the existence or otherwise of the policy in the curriculum.
Addressing the media on Thursday, the President of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council, Rev. Prof Paul Yaw Frimpong-Manso labelled the subject as diabolic, as it will have negative consequences on children.
“We are here to address and state our official position on the raging debate and controversy of the Comprehensive Sexuality Education which I have termed Comprehensive Satanic Education because of the impact it can have on our children which the government through the Ministry of education intends or intended to introduce into the Basic Schools curriculum come the next academic year,” he said.
He further among other recommendations called for the withdrawal of CSE.
“Government should be transparent with the people of Ghana by publicly committing to completely withdrawing this policy instead of a mere assurance of suspension of implementation. This move we believe will engender trust between government and key stakeholders of our educational system. This mutual trust is currently missing and must be pursued now,” he stated.
