The Catholic Bishops’ Conference has condemned tribal comments made by founder of Glorious Wave Chapel, Prophet Badu Kobi.
The Conference have called on Prophet Kobi to apologise to Ghanaian women for a bigotry statement he made about them during a recent church service.
Prophet Kobi at a sermon described women from certain tribes as unwise and unmarriageable and admonished prospective husbands to avoid marrying from those tribes.
He told his congregation that: “Fanti women are foolish sometimes and Ewes too are doormats. But for Ashanti women no!...If you marry Ashanti lady, you have imported problem for yourself forever. I have done research and it is so and I’ll never marry an Ashanti woman…”
Reacting to the prophet’s outburst, the Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference said “we condemn him in no uncertain terms for saying what he said.”
“It is our view that a pastor of a church, or anybody for that matter, should not talk the way he did. In so doing, he has shown great disrespect to women. Such statements bring division not only in the church but also in the nation,” a statement signed by President, Most Rev. Philip Naameh said.
