Who agrees with Akinola and the Church of Nigeria?
Colin Coward says it most clearly over on Changing Attitude, in a entry titled, Why aren't conservatives reporting the Nigerian church position paper?
He asks, "Do the various organisations which are connecte d with the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) support in its entirety the position paper presented in the name of Archbishop Peter Akinola at the hearing on Wednesday?
None of their websites or blogs has reported the hearing or reproduced the paper. Anglican Mainstream as usual has a comprehensive range of reports with a focus on secular and religious news in North America and the UK but nothing on Nigeria. There’s nothing on CANA, VirtueOnline, T19 or Stand Firm."
He further asks, "I would like to know whether other Global South leaders, and in particular, Chris Sugden and Martyn Minns, agree with the content of the position paper and the attitudes expressed about LGBT Anglicans."
Good questions! Not only about it "in its entirety," but in its particulars concerning the support of the bill before the Nigerian legislature.
In an earlier blog I asked, "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?"
Same idea, different page.
The Nigerian bill and the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) paper in support of the bill is now available in a more accessible format over on Lionel Deimel's Web Log.
So, where are the answers?
