Freddie McGregor’s lyrics ‘To Be Poor Is a Crime’ seems to hold sway in Prosperity Churches as Ghanaian counselor and pastor, George Lutherodt, is claimed to have advised women not to marry poor men.
“You will die and go to hell!”
According to NAIJ.com, the counselor also advises women to arrest any poor man who uses their photos as profile pictures on social media.
“Report such a man to the police and let them know he is using your image to perpetrate crime. Never allow a poor man to marry you. You will die early and go to hell. A man who cannot afford a square meal and a snack should not dream of marriage because he cannot fend for himself,” he said.
“There are some of the men who have no rooms of their own who live in obey the wind chamber and hall. Any man who is of age but not reminded by his parents, such parents are witches and wizards. Never support a man to marry you. He must be fully responsible to cater for you and therefore must bear all the cost of the marriage.”
