30 years but can't believe Channel 7's Sunrise show could come out in support of marriage equality. That's because Sydney Anglicans like Russell believe that human rights issues, in relationship to gay and lesbians, are of no consequence. Russell Powell published nothing on the Sydney Anglican website about the Ugandan 'Kill the Gay' Bill or the persecution that occurred as a result. The Sydney Anglican diocese has aligned itself with African Anglican Bishops who advocate this persecution. Sydney Anglicans like Russell Powell are more concerned with the preservation of prejudical Biblical authenticity that omits the existence of issues pertaining to contemporary society, than people being hanged for their sexual orientation or others being prosecuted for helping the persecuted. That is why Russell Powell displays such an ethical approach to NOT reporting of the occurances in Uganda on the Sydney Anglican website.
When Russell was a journalist fot the ABC...did he refrain from telling people about the vote being given to women or that slavery had been abolished ...eventhough Biblical authenticity was compromised? I wonder what Dorothy thought about Russell?
