Distracted? Obsessed you mean. And for obvious reasons no doubt.
As Dr Sentamo well knows, the primary message of Jesus is salvation, i.e. the saving of the soul from sin.Regarding his complaint that the issue of homosexuality is dominating the Anglican Church, why doesn’t he tackle his colleague Peter Akinola, the Archbishop of Nigeria, about this?
it’s a shame that the church never realised this stance in years gone by, we have all witnessed in past months the wickedness of both the anglican and roman catholic churches in discriminating against a minority population and instead of giving pastoral care and helping the poor and needy, the sick and disabled, have vented their incitement of hate toward a peace-abiding gay minority, no wonder the population have turned their backs on their religious intolerance. The anglican church have £4 billion in their coffers and still receive public taxpayers monies towards restoring their churches, and turning to the roman catholic church with assets of £37 million per year, how much of taxpayers monies do they receive in the Western world.
The Anglican Church and Dr Sentamu have made themselves ridiculous and archaic with their irrational ill treatment of and obsession with gay men and Lesbians. Dr Sentamu put forward the ridiculous argument that the state shouldn’t legislate to control religious “conscience”. Anyone with half a brain can see that the state currently legislates to control extremes of religious belief. It is not acceptable to murder or bomb or stone to death people, to marry more than one person at a time, to keep slaves etc etc no matter how strong your religious conviction. Yet this was his argument for allowing anyone with religious convictions to discriminate against gay and Lesbian people. He sits silently by with Rowan Williams while Ankinola advocates and lobbies for the most civilly and morally draconian of legislation in Nigeria. Why would anyone take these cruel and deluded men seriously?
“The Anglican Church and Dr Sentamu have made themselves ridiculous and archaic with their irrational ill treatment of and obsession with gay men and Lesbians.”Christianity *is* archaic and like all other religions it is based on superstition which is totally irrational.
