But the ABC may also need to do some more reflecting himself on a different valid point, and that is that when we DON'T stand up for the rights and spirituality of our LGBT brothers and sisters, then THEY can be similarly abused - especially in Africa.
I respect what the ABC saw in South Sudan. It's not an experience I have had. Had he coupled this discussion with condemnation of Uganda's new anti-gay law, I would be somewhat less uncomfortable.
I am proud to be a member of an Anglican province, the Episcopal Church in the United States, that doesn't wait for justice or love. Reader, I don't know who you are, but I know that Jesus loves you. That means I do too. Every single one of us already has God's grace, so what else matters? Just the love and justice that flow from that truth.
