Homo Bishop Prick

Episcopal churches in the United States, horrified by the liberal drift of their church (ordaining women, marrying gay people), have crawled into bed with this man.
The way he tells the story, the first and only time Archbishop Peter J. Akinola knowingly shook a gay person’s hand, he sprang backward the moment he realized what he had done.
Archbishop Akinola, the conservative leader of Nigeria’s Anglican Church who has emerged at the center of a schism over homosexuality in the global Anglican Communion, re-enacted the scene from behind his desk Tuesday, shaking his head in wonder and horror.
“This man came up to me after a service, in New York I think, and said, ‘Oh, good to see you bishop, this is my partner of many years,’” he recalled. “I said, ‘Oh!’ I jumped back.”
Nigeria recently passed a law that makes it a crime for two gay people to be in the same room together, a bill Archbishop Bigot supports. Two gay men or two lesbians seen together could wind up in prison for five years. (Where they would encounter many other homos, presumably.) I would ask if the American congregations that recently voted to put themselves under this bigot’s authority also support that draconian law but I already know the answer. These “conservative” parishes are all in Virginia, home to America’s most draconian anti-gay laws.
