A Former Director of Operations at the Forestry Commission, Charles Owusu has said that Ghanaians talk too much.
He says he cannot understand the fuss about the state building a Cathedral to the glory of God but some people have problems with it.
“I don’t understand things in this country. We talk too much and it looks like we have to talk about everything. What even hurts me is the fact that some Christians have chosen their political party over their religion.
Politicians should not attempt to bring their politics into our religion. I hear Kumchacha says the trustees have bought cars. Do you know the number of cars Duncan Williams has? Talk about Light House. With all due respect, the populism some Pastors are engaged in is uncalled for. They just want to take a stance on the other side just so people know they are not in favour of building a Cathedral.
Take the Church and Christianity from Ghana, there is no Ghana. What is this? Why is it that when anyone wants to say anything bad they attack the Christian religion? What wrong have we committed in this country? They insult Pastors and go scot-free,” he said on Accra-based Asempa FM.
Charles Owusu said the Church has played various key roles in the country and deserves the needed respect being accorded it by the President of Ghana.
“If we want to talk about hospitals, Schools, even employment that the Church provides. In my Church which has over 1,500 members, we pay over 50 people who we have employed. The other churches with huge numbers have employed several Ghanaians. Are we not contributing to the development of this country. So why will people be against the fact that the President wants to build a Cathedral to the Glory of God?”
“Some people are led by politics. They have made it look like it’s a sacrilege to build a Cathedral for the Lord. What is this? In any case, if this project is done it is not the property of the President,” he said on Asempa FM.
