Ghana: Excrement at church entrance in protest of archbishop’s visit
May 04, 2010
Human excrement was placed at the entrance of a parish church in Accra, Ghana’s capital city, to protest Archbishop Charles Palmer-Buckle’s visit. Posters calling for the removal of the archbishop and the parish’s pastor were also placed on the walls of the church.
“‘It’s a very unfortunate kind of affairs, if people have issues they have to discuss with leadership but not smear a place of worship with fecal matter,” said Rev. Fred Degbe, the Protestant minister who heads the Ghana Christian Council. “It is regrettable particularly in the church; I think it is criminal.”
