Peter Akinola seems to think that the Primates have asked us to stop a) celebrating gay marriages and b) ordaining gay men and lesbians.
The problem is that we don’t do a, and the Primates communiqué says not a word about b.
But Akinola is clearly against ordaining homosexuals. So, if we are willing to allow the Primates to assume governance for some of our diocese, declare a moratorium on the consecration of gay bishops and stop authorizing rites for the blessing of same-sex relationships, we can remain in the Anglican Communion where he can force his opinion upon us.
So there’s that to look forward to.
Akinola’s remarks came after an otherwise auspicious occasion, the launch of second CAPA HIV/AIDS TB & MALARIA Strategic Plan in Nairobi.
