Earthquakes Happen Because Gay People Have Sex, Says Muslim Cleric
Mallam Abass Mahmud said in an interview: “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.
“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.
Homosexuality is illegal in Ghana and there have been reports of increasing violence against the community in the country by the Zongo community.
According to News Ghana, a number of homosexuals have been forced to flee their homes, due to fear of attacks by radical groups.
