Some pastors in the country “lash” their members for visiting hospitals when they are sick, the General Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana has revealed.
Rev. Dr. Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong who failed to mention the names of such churches said he has listened to a pregnant woman who claimed she was beaten up by her pastor merely for visiting a hospital.
“Now there are churches even in Accra that do not allow their members to go to hospitals. I have listened to a pregnant woman who said that her pastor whip her after she had visited a hospital,” he stated.
Speaking on Morning Starr with host Kafui Dey, Tuesday Opuni-Frimpong also expressed worry over churches, who he said, do not allow their members to go to school.
“…Not only that, now we have churches who will not even allow members to go to school”.
