General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God Church, Ghana, Rev Dr. Frimpong Manso, has described the planned Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) Guidelines to be introduced in public schools by the Ghana Education Service as "satanic".
Labeling the guidelines as rather "Comprehensive Satanic Engagement", the renowned man of God vowed to resist the roll-out of the guidelines with all his strength and power.
Score of individuls and civil society organisations have strongly raised opposition to the introduction of the new educational guidelines on sex for basic schools.
Beginning next year, pupils in all public schools, including 4-year-olds will be given Comprehensive Sexuality Education.
Officials say the subject content would, however, be age-appropriate, so the toddlers would be empowered with values that would protect them from sexual harassment.
But critics say it is part of an active strategy by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) movement to get acceptance - especially in Africa, where resistance has been most strong.
But the Ministry of Education and its partners deny these accusations.
Speaking on Okay Fm's Ade Akye Abia programme, Rev Dr. Frimpong Manso pointed out that the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council is "totally opposed" to these new education guidelines and its members will walk their children out of the classroom during such periods.
He explained that taking these kids through such education at this young age will lead to the degradation of the country's moral fibre and religion.
"Teaching our children about sex education is not a bad idea but going into details and introducing other aspects will pollute the moral education we are giving them as children.
"The Charismatic and Christian Council will meet the leadership of Parliament to discuss the syllabus which we hear has already been introduced in our schools. We expect the government to act swiftly and do something about it before they suffer the consequences thereof.
"We the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council are totally opposed to it, none of our teachers will teach that, we will walk our children out and any government who will promote it, it will be a tool for them to walk out...already corruption is destroying our country, we are battling with finding medical solutions to several health issues and we must seek ways of resolving them and not how to teach kids to be gays and lesbians which is contrary to the scriptures..." he stated.
