“The House of Bishops is failing not only itself and the wider Church but the lives of thousands of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender members of the Church of England, lay and ordained, their families and friends and congregations. The impact of the House of Bishops’ dishonesty is deep and widespread in the Church – Colin Coward – It has become obvious that the influence of the anti-gay sodality in the Church of England (and elswhere in the Communion) is motivating the culture of denial within the House of Bishops, that prevents them from being honest in dialogue with the… Read more »

¨Don’t let homophobia set the Anglican agenda, says bishop¨ Bishop Selby/James Richardson Dear Dr. Williams, Are you aware of the CURRENT, yes immediate, threat to LGBT Anglicans in UGANDA? Surely, you have time to ¨comment¨ on the deadly agenda prescribed by Archbishop Orombi and others that will most likely be passed into law very soon? +++Rowan if you are able to remove children from oncoming traffic I hope you´ll also consider a moment of awareness of your further spiritual/moral leadership responsibilities as ¨first amongst¨ at The Anglican Communion.

“Anglican/other blood will flow” Thanks for bringing this to the fore, Leonardo. Sarcasm alert!!!There is some comfort to be taken. For the past 1700 years, give or take, the Church has declared that if the State does it, it isn’t murder. So, no-one’ll be murdered in Uganda. Also, since we are assured by some in the Church of Nigeria that homosexuals aren’t made by God, then it won’t be a part of Creation that’s being destroyed. So no great worries. One of the first steps taken in a genocide is to dehumanize the victims. In Germany in the 30’s, Jews… Read more »
