President John Atta Mills has expressed concern over the use of vulgar words and the high level of immorality in the country.
The president said the tongue is the smallest part of the body but very powerful thus any word that comes from it has potency of building or destroying the nation.
He has therefore called on the Church and Ghanaians to guard against these cankers which are eating into our social fabric.
The President said this at the just ended 3rd General Assembly of the E.P. Church, Ghana in Ho.
He also complained fervently about the actions of charlatans who call themselves men of God saying the that both the church and the nation are under attack as the Church which serves as a succor for the depressed and vulnerable in society, is no longer safe as a result of the activities of these charlatans.
On the 2012 general elections, President Mills promised that the government will ensure free, fair and transparent proceedings but also cautioned that government would not sit down and allow any person or groups of persons to disturb the national peace in their quest to win political power.
On his part, the moderator of the General Assembly of the E.P church, Rev. Francis Amenu said the E.P Church, abhors homosexuality but not the actors and said the act is a complex and a serious issue which have to be handled as such. He therefore expressed believe that those who engage in the act can be forgiven and have their lives transformed through the use of a Christ-centered approach.
Rt. Rev. Amenu said homosexual marriage was without Biblical theological precedent and that the phenomenon today like in Biblical times was as a result of distortions brought about by sin.
