Enact Laws To Regulate All Religious Entities – Dr Boadi Nyamekye
Dr. Boadi Nyamekye Tells Parliament: General Overseer of The Maker’s House Chapel International, Dr. Michael Boadi Nyamekye, wants parliament to regulate all religious activities, and not only churches as earlier reports suggested.
According to him, other developing countries already have such policies which is ‘doing fine’ – “So it’s not new, we can do it.”
“But they [Parliament] should include people who understand the church like the Christian Council among others in drafting of the policy,” he said in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’.
Parliament could soon enact laws to regulate activities of churches solely owned and run by individuals and self-professed pastors termed as “one-man church.”
Some Members of Parliament want the house to take steps to control and sanitize these churches.
Some of these churches are alleged to have been engaging in all manner of unacceptable practices in the country.
According to the MPs, there is a need for Parliament to critically investigate the activities of these churches and pastors to protect Ghanaians from exploitation.
But Dr. Michael Boadi Nyamekye, who favours such proposed laws if only its enactment will regulate all forms of religious activities and not primarily churches, noted that, “The laws should also not victimize anyone”.
“It will be prudent if the laws regulate all religious entities rather than the church only,” he added.
