African Bishops: Homosexuality against God’s word

No surprise. This isn’t even news. From AFP:

ENTEBBE (Uganda) – AFRICAN Anglican bishops voiced their strong disapproval of homosexuality at a meeting on Tuesday attended by Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, as the issue continues to divide Anglicans.

‘Homosexuality is incompatible with the word of God,’ said conference host and Ugandan Archbishop Uganda Henry Luke Orombi.

‘It is good Archbishop Rowan is here. We are going to express to him where we stand,’ he added.

Head of the Anglican church worldwide, Williams is struggling to keep the communion together amid disagreements over the ordination of female bishops in Britain, and of openly gay bishops in the United States.

‘There is already a break. It doesn’t need to be announced,’ said Archbishop Orombi.

Archbishop Williams delivered a sermon on Tuesday at the opening of the six-day meeting, the first of its kind since 2004. While he did not mention homosexuality, he said it was the duty of all bishops to be open-minded on contentious issues. — AFP
