Ugandan Anglicans threaten schism over homosexuality

Catholic World News - March 04, 2014

Uganda’s leading Anglican prelate has told Agence France-Presse that the Anglican church in his nation may become independent from the Church of England over the issue of homosexuality.

“If they are not willing to listen to us, we shall consider being on our own,” said Archbishop Stanley Ntagali. “Homosexual practice is incompatible with Scripture, and no one in the leadership of the church can legitimize same-sex unions or homosexuality.”

“Our doors are open for those facing sexual disorientation to be counseled, healed, and prayed for,” he added. “The church is a safe place for those who are confused about their sexuality or struggling with sexual brokenness.”

    Thank you, Archbishop Ntagali, for calling this attraction what it truly is: a Sexual DIS-orientation. The enemy has a firm grip on this situation as long as he controls the vocabulary. Don't let him silence you!

    More loyalty here to Scripture than there is in a lot of Catholic parishes nowadays. Within very recent times the proposition that there was anything at all "normal" about this deviancy would have gotten one laughed off all public stages. Since then sanity has become a scarce resource around the globe.
