Defending Bishop Orombi, Archbishop Williams, head of the worldwide Anglican Communion, emphasised that, as with other relevant Anglican primates, Bishop Orombi’s position concerned "exclusion from ministry on grounds of behaviour, not orientation".
He continued that Mr Kato had been "named in this rotten, disgraceful Ugandan publication" – the Rolling Stone newspaper in Kampala – in which "effectively, his murder had been called for."
It illustrated, he said, that "words have results . . . certainly a lesson all need to learn".
Yeah. The rag is rotten. So is Orombi rotten - and that's the point. And calling for something hardly excuses it; is that the implication, Archbishop, really? Are people like 'sheep'?
Honestly, it's that old one again, behaviour not orientation. A fine distinction indeed and utter nonsense. It's like when Williams went on about lifestyle choices. He doesn't get it but then he doesn't want to get it because of the company he'd like to keep. Such follows his earlier rather pathetic statement when he stated:
Such violence has been consistently condemned by the Anglican Communion worldwide.
No it hasn't. They have homophobia deep in their cultural and personal veins; think of the former Archbishop of Nigeria and his view of the Muslims not having a monopoly on all the violence.
