African archbishop will boycott Anglican conference, citing discord on homosexuality

August 04, 2017

The Anglican archbishop of Uganda has announced that he will not attend a conference of Anglican leaders in October, because of sharp disagreements on issues of sexuality.

Archbishop Stanley Ntagali left a meeting of Anglican primates last year, citing the same disagreements. He charged that Anglican leaders in the Western world, and particularly the US and Canada, had “torn the fabric of the Anglican communion” with their acceptances of homosexuality.

    It appears that Archbishop Stanley Ntagali is more Catholic than the Pope.
