AAI condemns Ghanian Government’s Attack on Its Gay Citizens

It has been reported that Ghana's Western Regional Minister has ordered all gays to be arrested and called on other Ghanians to "inform" on suspected homosexuals.

This disgusting action is just one more example of the danger and discrimination faced by same-sex oriented people in some countries, with such attitudes commonly perpetuated by religious groups (in this case Christians and Muslims).  Atheist Alliance International supports full equality for same-sex oriented people - there is no rational basis for discriminating against people simply on the basis of their sexual orientation, just as there is no basis for discriminating against people simply on the basis of their gender, race, ethnicity or other physical characteristics.
