From THE IRISH TIMES:
Rowan Williams, reacted strongly to media questions in Dublin yesterday which queried the role of the Anglican primate of Uganda, Most Rev Henry Luke Orombi, in fomenting a climate in which gay activist David Kato was murdered there last Wednesday.
Defending Bishop Orombi, Williams emphasised that Bishop Orombi’s position concerned “exclusion from ministry on grounds of behaviour, not orientation”.
He continued that Mr Kato had been “named in this rotten, disgraceful Ugandan publication” – the Rolling Stone newspaper in Kampala – in which “effectively, his murder had been called for.”
It illustrated, he said, that “words have results . . . certainly a lesson all need to learn”.
COMMENT: I'm trying to work out where I took the wrong turn and so ended up on this crazy planet.
Honestly, the things our Archbishop says make the conversation at the Mad Hatter's Tea Party appear truly coherent in comparison.
Oh, you'll be pleased to know that Katharine Zeta Schori showed some bottle, as usual. Speaking at Christ Church Cathedral yesterday morning she said the primate of Uganda faced “significant challenges." She prayed for him and for the soul of David Kato, whose death was a reminder of “the need to treat all human beings with dignity”.
