  1. Well I guess it’s the UK’s fault because if it wasn’t for Church missionaries going to Africa & filling their head with this crap in the first place, this wouldn’t be happening right now.

      Yes, and US evangelicals pouring resources in with their hate filled message.

  2. Dave North 3 Feb, 12:13pm

    I suggest he renames his “church” to the Ugandan Church, as it is clearly no longer aligned with the Anglican church.

    Bet he still wants its dosh though.

  3. And yet Uganda comes 4th (or thereabouts) on the list of countries who most frequently search for the term “man on man sex” on Google. Maybe the Ugandan church is incompatible with Ugandan society

    just as Henry explained I am taken by surprise that a student able to profit $9357 in four weeks on the computer. did you read this webpage… TEC80.COM

    Correction- incompatible with lying homophobic scum

    Nothing will come of it. Welby is determined not to cause a schism with the African branch. His and Sentamu’s statement a week ago was nothing more than window dressing as a result of pressure at home even though perhaps well intended. Canterbury still hasn’t issued an official apology to the LGBTI community for centuries of discrimination, much of it violent, and supporting and promoting homophobia at home and abroad as well as supporting Section 28.. Let’s not forget, the CofE opposed CPs and vigorously opposed equal marriage with some of the most vile rhetoric in the entire legislative procedure.

    1. CH Brighton 3 Feb, 12:49pm

      Yes, and you’ve only to look at the websites of Anglican Mainstream and Christian Concern (whose founder is a member of the CofE synod) to see the unpleasantness lurking within Welby’s ranks.

  7. Slavery, on the other hand, is 100% compatible with scripture. I wonder what he would have to say about that? (Actually, I don’t. There would be “out of context”, “historical context”, “slavery in the Bible isn’t slavery as we understand modern slavery”, “that’s Old Testament”, etc.)

  8. Oh, piss off already, Church of Uganda.

    The sooner these African churches cut ties with their “mother” church the better. Probably the only reason they recommended the proposed Ugandan laws be made less severe is because they want to retain the monopoly on eternal damnation themselves.

    Someone should point out to him that its actually gay hatred feulled attacks on defenceless men and women that is incompatible with scripture and its that , that Canterbury and York have issue with. Idiot!

  10. That There Other David 3 Feb, 1:30pm

    Of course homosexuality is incompatible with scripture. Scripture is incompatible with humanity. Anyone who reads that vile massacre-laden hatefest would rightfully come to that conclusion.

    If there is a god, he hates human beings. Really hates us. The scriptures make that clear.

    1. Pavlos 4 Feb, 7:26am

      Homosexuality per se is not described anywhere in scripture, what is described is ritual same sex activity as part of pagan worship by otherwise heterosexual or married persons and abusive /commercial same sex activity involving procuring, pederasty and sexual use of slaves. Oh and the attempted rape of angels also.

  11. Tim Hanafin 3 Feb, 1:45pm

    Eating shellfish and wearing mixed fibre clothing is also incompatible with scriptures but I don’t notice any new laws in Uganda regarding these practices nor the Ugandan Church speaking out against them. Pick-and-Mix religion.

  12. Mark Y 3 Feb, 2:39pm

    Head of Ugandan church = bigoted brainwashed hypocrite

  13. Nomwesigwa Eliab 3 Feb, 3:01pm

    friends, i love the stand of the archbishop of UGANDA. we as christians in Uganda will not lower biblical standards to suit evil practices of homosexuality.

  14. I wonder how he feels about the Biblical commandment for slaves to obey their masters? Comments?

  15. Most people’s growing realisation is that scripture is incompatible with modern ethics – the only way all Christians ever find scripture acceptable is to preach the bits they like and ignore those they don’t. The next generation won’t be conned and intolerant religion will die out – the sooner the better.

    1. Yes – but it’s either a ‘rule’ book or it isn’t. Imagine if we used The Highway Code in the same selective way! “I think I might drive on the right today …”. These ancient novels were all well and good for keeping uneducated, superstitious serfs in place but it’s all just a little bit silly and childish in this age of science, don’t you think ….?

    …how can humans be so stupid especially in these African countries?…in regards to saying ‘Homosexuality is incompatible with Scripture, then CHANGE it! After all we humans invented religion.

    1. …how can humans be so stupid especially in these African countries?

      Ignorance and indoctrination. We only have to look at how stupid people can be in the rich, industrialised and advanced USA to see how difficult it can be for people to think rationally.

  17. Christopher Coleman 3 Feb, 5:15pm

    The historical parts of “Scripture” record Jewish history in much the same way as most ancients recorded their history. A large portion of the rest of “Scripture” is incompatible with reality as we know it. It is, therefore, not a valid defence.

    Homosexuality incompatible with Scripture

    one more for the list of such thingd- along with reason , sanity, tolerance etc

  19. BUD CLARK 3 Feb, 8:10pm

    I don’t remember … is Lambeth Conference only for sitting archbishops and bishops, or does it include retired and resigned bishops as well?

    If the present ++Cantuar has the balls to invite Lord Cary, then he’d BETTER have the balls to invite +Gene Robinson.

    *I* thought the pro-gay Provinces and bishops should have stayed home last time ++Williams’ treatment of +Robinson was disgraceful. +Robinson was the sitting Ordinary of a US diocese.

    ++Jefferts Schori and Co. should have stayed home. SHE was required to CARRY her mitre in procession, rather than wear it, and was not “allowed” to celebrate Mass in the UK.

    ++Jefferts Schori is the sitting PRIMATE of a PROVINCE (US).

    The C of E has a funny (i.e. congregational) view of what the Apostolic Succession MEANS. One can’t be “a little bit ordained/consecrated,” any more than one can be “a little bit pregnant.”

    ++Cantuar should excommunicate most of the “Global South” and be done with it.

  20. Roz Mercer 4 Feb, 12:32am

    Considering the terrible time that black people have had over the centuries, the atrocities committed against them and the treatment often metered out by the white religious sector of society, I wonder why they waste their time with a god at all.

  21. You can blame US “Missionaries” like Scott Lively for this one.
