Archbishop Ntagali Fires Back At Anglican  Archbishop of York John Sentamu On the new Anti-gay Law in Uganda

News coming in is about Uganda’s threatening to break away from the Church of England over LGBTI rights.

The Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, Stanley Ntagali has said that John Sentamu a Ugandan born head of the Anglican Church has become ‘spiritually hood winked’ on homosexuality.

Addressing Christians at St Andrew’s Church in Bukoto, he said he had received a letter from Ugandan-born Archbishop of York John Sentamu.

In the letter co-signed by Archbishop of Canterbury, they said the Church of England was ‘concerned’ about the African country’s homophobia.

Homosexuals were loved and valued by God and deserved the ‘best pastoral care and friendship’, the two religious leaders said.

Ntagali replied thus: ‘I have written back to Archbishop Sentamu.

“I told him it does not matter even if we do not work with them because the Church of England is a product of repentance and the USA is founded on Christian values but they seem to have become spiritually blind”

The Ugandan archbishop accused the Americans and the British of trying to play double standards by ‘preaching homosexuality’ but sending missionaries to spread the ‘word of God’.

‘Many people have spiritual blindness but let us not mix issues,’ he said.

‘136 years ago, the Church of England sent graduates from Oxford University to Africa to evangelise. America is a super power built on Christian principles… but in all this money is involved.’

The Ugandan Church, along with others in Africa, has already broken its ties with Anglicans in North America over the blessing of same-sex unions.

The Church of England does ordain gay clergy as long as they are celibate.

But while Welby has said some gay couples have monogamous of ‘stunning’ quality, he still says he supports the Church of England’s opposition to active homosexuality.
