Having just posted my last entry "Nigerian Anglicans ramp up the anti-gay rhetoric," I wandered over to The Pluralist, who had also just posted on the Church of Nigeria anti-gay campaign. Pluralist's Expel the Nigerian Church - Time to Move On says it better, digs deeper and tells it like it is. Read it.
Pluralist says, "The Anglican Communion is watching one of its members become increasingly fascist, but its "patient" response so far has been to slow down the brighter model of inclusive development of human rights elsewhere. This is simply not a proper response to such a State's and Church's relationship towards its weakest (to paraphrase the identification of how to identify 'being ethical', according to the Archbishop of Canterbury in his recent economics lecture).
Rather, the time is now to show an alternative beacon of Communion of all the people: to meet this evil homophobic obsession in Nigeria head on and show that there is another way and a visible hope for all those about to suffer even more at the hands of the likes of Akinola and his crew. The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church of Canada, and other Churches, should now take off the brakes, because this is the ethical thing to do in the face of the dark clouds over obsessed Nigeria."
Right. The Pluralist puts the skunk on the table.
And when will there be any response from the Convocation of Anglicans in North America, or the GAFCON wannabe Province, now the Common Cause Partnership, concerning their close association with this hate mongering mess?
