Policy Think Tank, IMANI AFRICA, has finally responded with a Bible quote, to claims that the organisation is being funded by by LGBTQI money from foreign donors.
LGBTQI community Ghana, has opened it’s first ever office in the country’s capital, Accra, leading to mixed reactions and concerns from citizens, CSOs and religious bodies including the Catholic Bishops’ Conference.
Imani Ghana has been accused of being funded with money from this community hence their refusal to comment on their activities in the country.
The several accusations has caused Vice President of IMANI, Mr Kofi Bentil to jump to the defense of the organisation.
In a social media post sighted by GhanaNewsPage.Com, sMr Bentil stated that they are not financed by any LGBTQI group as has been rumoured.
According to him, their Think Tank is embraces wisdom from all faiths, adding that they are also firmly rooted in Christian and libertarian principles.
Mr Bentil in his post quoted from the Holy Bible, Mathew 13: 24 “The Parables of The Weeds” as response to calls on the Think Tank to speak on the ongoing LGBTQI issues.
” The Parables of The Weeds”
24 Jesus told them another parable ” the kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among his wheat and went away. 26when the wheat sprouted heads, then the weeds also appeared.
27″ The owner’s servants came to him and said ” sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?
28 ” An enemy did this, he replied.
” The servants asked him, ” Do you want us to go and pull them out?’
29″ ‘ No, ‘ he answered, ‘ because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. 30Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters : First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn” Kofi Bentil’s Bible quote read.
