Uganda’s Anglican Archbishop “Ready To Break Away”

Jim Burroway

March 3rd, 2014

Uganda’s Anglican Archbishop Stanley Ntagali made the threat during a sermon yesterday:

The Archbishop of Church of Uganda (CoU) has responded to the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, saying Uganda is ready to break away from the Church of England if its views on homosexuality are not respected.

Addressing Christians at St Andrews Church, Bukoto yesterday, Archbishop Stanley Ntangali [sic] said the Ugandan-born Archbishop of York John Sentamu recently wrote to him, saying the Church of England was concerned about the CoU’s anti-homosexuality stand.

“I have written back to Archbishop Sentamu. I told him it does not matter even if we do not work with them because the Church of England is a product of repentance and USA is founded on Christian values but they seem to have become spiritually blind,” Bishop Ntangali [sic] said.

Shortly after Parliament passed the Anti-Homosexuality Bill, Ntagali thanked Parliament during a Christmas message.

This is not a comment on the story of the Church of Uganda, but an question about what is happening with the column of today’s stories. I am not getting anything but blank screen after the lead in.”Today’s stories are brought to you by…”

I am not experiencing a problem in Chrome 33.0 or Internet Explorer 8 on Windows XP. I do not get a header reading “Today’s stories are brought to you by…”. I only get the usual Box Turtle Bulletin page with news.

Good riddance, Church of Uganda — the communion will be better off with you!

FYI – Sherif Girgis, one of Robert George’s natural law proteges, was just disqualified as an expert in the marriage equality bench trial going on in Michigan right now.

I wonder whether they really want to leave, or if this is more of the continuing attempt to get more progressive sections of the Anglican Communion cut out. If they do go…. well, it means one less potential future path to improving things in Uganda, but (particularly if a few other similarly-inclined branches do the same) it frees the CoE from having to try to please everybody to hold things together.

The cowards of Uganda refuse to face the truth about themselves and the rest of humanity…of course they are paid-off grandly by some U.S. Evangleicals to keep the FEAR/HATE (and masculinity challenge) going…these hatemongers at the Anglican Church in Uganda were incited initially by Archbishop Henry Orombi, retired primate of Uganda (yes, he’s the fellow that tried to thieve U.S. Episcopal Church Parishes, cause millions of dollars worth of legal expenses and partnered with undesireable anti-lgbt C Streeters in Washington D.C.)..Orombi’s replacement is the ++Stanley who clearly stays in step with the Orombi, Bhahati, Museveni (all Anglicans) party line. For me it’s very hard to not LOATH those who would harm/outcast our LGBTI sisters and brothers at Church while sex slavery, child witchburning, albino eating, civil war, rampant alcoholism and vertical corruption run rampant in Uganda. Not exactly a inspiring Church leadership at the Anglican Church in the Province of Uganda…so, take your butt elsewhere, Stanley. Nice to meet ya, wouldn’t wanna be YA!

Hopefully Canterbury has no delusions about who created this monster. The CofE laid the egg, hatched it, fed and nurtured it and now they’ll act all surprised and hurt that the monster that they created is turning on them.
