Anglican Bishops draw the line with Canterbury

From CNN:

Archbishop Henry Luke Orombi, head of Uganda’s Anglican church and the host of the week-long All Africa Bishops Conference, said the Archbishop of Canterbury faces a complicated task in trying to reunite the church.

“He (Williams) spoke what was on his mind and we also spoke. We impressed it on him that he had totally gone in a different direction and he has to sort it out,” Orombi told journalists after their closed-door meeting on Wednesday.

“We sympathize with his position as head of the Anglican communion suffering disunity on moral grounds and teaching of the scripture. It’s like having unruly kids in his house and he can’t sit down to eat food.”

“We have told him and he understood us, that (there’s) no more diplomacy on that matter, homosexuality. We made our minds very clear and he is going back knowing there is no gray area on our part,” Orombi said.

Journalists who tried to question Williams on the subject at the conference were rebuffed by aides who surrounded him. The archbishop returned to England Thursday, but CNN calls to his office were not immediately returned.
