|and it seems that bigotry and hypocrisy is linked to Sydney!|
The article goes onto highlight the misogyny of some clergy who cannot even deal with a male bishop because in their mind they have been tainted by being ordained by women bishop...Anglicans in 42 of the 44 dioceses of the Church of England say they want women bishops. They have offered the services of outside male bishops to the minority of parishes who cannot accept a woman in authority. The generous concession was not enough. So Williams cut a deal with the misogynists. He proposes that not only can they have male bishops, but male bishops who have not been ordained by a woman, or ordained a woman themselves or even taken communion from a woman. (Williams will have to appoint bishops who were born to a sinful woman, but one suspects that if he could find men without mothers he would take them.)
The other post reviews a documentry film called... ¨Call Me Kuchu detailing the plight of David Kato, Uganda’s first openly gay person... The film goes on to detail a libel case affecting regular law-abiding gays, as well as a national proposed law from Ugandan MP David Bahati that would require citizens to "report" gay people within a twenty-four hour period of discovery.¨
The film also shows the effects the manipulation of Western Evangelicals have had upon this society and the lies that are allowed and encouraged which include gays are involved pedophilia, prostitution, the deliberate spread of HIV and a terorist bombing in Kampala . It exposes an environment where...Gay youth are manipulated by the system, including curative rape, no counsel for defense, and subjection to abortions. Activists battle against an HIV spread rate which ignorance makes more rampant.
THANK YOU LEONARDO
And whilst homophobia is rife within the Sydney Diocese, the Minister for education Mr Adrian Piccoli has made a committment to stamp out homophobia in public schools.
