Akinola and Company (with focus on Company)

A friend of mine forwarded this to me. The Reverend Susan Russell comments on our lovely Anglican friends in Nigeria. It’s nice to know Akinola and Company (one mentioned here) and their American minions (the American Anglicans) are so concerned about butt sex.

Nothing like a little rabid rhetoric from Nigeria — that bastion of
Christian orthodoxy — along with your morning cup of coffee to get your
Wednesday morning going:

The Anglican Bishop of Uyo, Rt. Rev. Isaac Orama, has condemned the
activities of homosexuals and lesbians, and described those engaged in them
as “insane people.” “Homosexuality and lesbianism are inhuman. Those who
practice them are insane, satanic and are not fit to live because they are
rebels to God’s purpose for man,” the bishop said.

Inhuman.

Not fit to live.

I just saw the piece on Google alerts but Fr. Jake had the story yesterday
… check him out before you email/comment that this is just one Nigerian
Nutcase who stands alone.

Inhuman.

Not fit to live.

This is what we’re up against, people. If anybody out there is deluding
themselves that this is just a “gentleman’s disagreement” about polity or
theology or hermeneutics then here’s your wake-up call:

One thought on “Akinola and Company (with focus on Company)

  1. I stand by the comment I made on Brian’s blog the other day: It’s so nice that we live in a society without poverty, social injustice, war, or crime so that people can focus on butt sex, ain’t it?In fact, I think it’s even more applicable considering that Nigeria is — and some of my best friends are Nigerian — one of the most inefficient, corrupt countries on the face of the earth, where basic human services are only made available to those who can afford to bribe their way in.Seriously. If this guy spent half as much time working on what ails the country he lives in as he does worrying about the gays, it could truly be a wonderful place.
