The head of the Anglican Church in the Central Africa Province, Archbishop Albert Chama, said his church does not accept gay practices. (Which I assume refers to dentists, doctors, paediatricians and all other varieties of gay medical practitioners).

Archbishop Chama said this yesterday when he presided over the Order of Epiphany at St John's Cathedral in Bulawayo. He said the church was not going to reverse its position on same sex marriages.

After the service he said, "The Anglican Church of the Central Africa province does not and will not accept homosexuals and that is our stand. The homosexuals are humans created in the image of God and the only thing we can do for them is to pray and care for them."

The Order of Epiphany service is when the church recognises the great work of individuals in its ranks who had sacrificed a lot in peace building and community.

COMMENT: To understand these blustering fools would require trying to think in the way they think. I'm simply not prepared to undergo a lobotomy in order to make that possible. So, purely in the proverbial way, bugger the lot of them! At Christmas may they get what they deserve. Me, I'm going to celebrate God becoming flesh.



  1. Amen. Bugger the lot of them. The Lead has a piece up sharing the response of bishops with companion relationships with the Church in Sudan in regard to the retraction of the invitation to KJS over the whole gay thang…

    They are stumbling over themselves to beg for patience, citing the local situation as if to suggest “he didn’t really mean it.”

    Frankly I think it’s high time we turned off the spigot of American dollars…they don’t like what we do…then they can stop taking our money.

  2. Me too. Celebrate flesh/bugger lot (latter metaphorically, unless someone else is prepared to Take One for the Team!)

  3. “…and care for them.” That’s exactly what I’m afraid of.

    Yes, let’s celebrate Incarnation. If followers of Christ truly understand and live that, matters of sexual orientation become of very little consequence.

  4. matters of sexual orientation become of very little consequence

    Well, theologically, definitely. But there are certain situations in which the matter of sexual orientation can be important to discuss first.

  5. Well, that’s just being practical.

    My living into the Incarnation and coming out are inextricably woven together. Religionists have reason to fear such dangerous theology. It’s their worst nightmare.

  6. It’s time to stop turning a blind eye to neuroscience, which happens to confirm the biblical understanding of these things. Women have a fortyfold rise in progesterone during pregnancy, which gives them a powerful ability and desire to care for infants. There is a growing body of evidence about the gender implications of how the brain is wired, all of which suggests that our culture should increase its support for the complementarity of the sexes as that pertains to child-rearing and not support the several alternatives to the mother-and-father family system as the bedrock of social stability.
