Controversial Ghanaian counselor George Lutterodt has asked pastors to distribute condoms to the youth in their churches on Valentine's Day instead of organising evening programs in an attempt to prevent the congregation from celebrating the day in the manner they want. It appears the aim of celebrating Valentine's Day has been shifted from showing love to acts of promiscuity.
The development has led to churches holding programs in the evening to engage congregants series of activities including exchange of gifts, choreography and poetry recital.
But Counselor Lutterodt believes church activities can never prevent the current generation from
having sex on Valentine's Day.
Speaking to GhanaWeb, Counselor Lutterodt said the church should advise members on why to abstain from sex and distribute condoms to those who cannot abstain so they can have safe sex.
"Valentine is meant for some category of people and not everybody. Some churches have got it wrong. They think organising a program on Val’s Day can keep these popcorn boys from doing whatever they want to so. It's a shame. Because the boys will do whatever they are supposed to do after 10 o’clock. The best is to share condoms for them,"
Asked if that is not a way of fueling fornication, the Reverend replied in the negative.
