Gay sex is causing earthquakes in Ghana, says cleric

Ghana Homosexuals

Independent:  A Muslim cleric in Ghana has said sex between gay couples “disgusts Allah” and is responsible for earthquakes. Mallam Abass Mahmud said in an interview: “Allah gets annoyed when males engage in sexual encounter and such disgusting encounter causes earthquake.”

He also said Allah destroyed the ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrah ‘as the result of homesexuality’. A local news station reported that a number of gay men have fled their homes because they were ‘afraid to disclose their sexual preferences for fear of attacks’. Mahmud added: “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.”

Well, this sounds like it is going to be problematic for gay rights in Ghana.  The gays can’t be twirling around the country upsetting Allah and causing earthquakes.

Having said that, let me say this.  Mallam Abass Mahmud is possibly exaggerating the situation.  A quick check at Earthquake-Report.com suggests that there have been only five earthquakes in Ghana in recorded history, and none since 1939.

So either there have been no gays engaging in the particular type of Sodom and Gomorrah buggery he is describing since the commencement of World War II, or – hear me out on this one – poofs are not, in fact, causing earthquakes in Ghana.

Either way, I don’t feel there’s any need to “chase away such idiots from our Zongo communities.”
