The Anglican Antigay Agenda

This excerpt is from Richard Clarkson's analysis of the American Anglicans' relationship with Archbishop Akinola. Read it all here

The stakes are certainly high -- and ought to transcend "theological" differences over homosexuality. The time has come for the breakaway American Anglicans to decide whether they stand on the side of human dignity and human rights, or whether they choose to be agents and enablers of ancient bigotries, hatred and persecution. From this distance, I would say that these leaders are well aware of the stakes and have made their choices -- but I would be happy to be proven wrong. But as it stands, the international religious right seems to be headed in a very ugly direction -- and Anglican Americans are going along for the ride.
