ACK Clergy Boycott UK Forum Over Presence of Gay Leaders
Some Anglican clergy from Kenya have boycotted the Lambeth Conference in the UK protesting the presence of gay senior church leaders.
Anglican Archbishop Jackson ole Sapit says the Church is opposed to homosexuality.
“We are having the Lambeth Conference in the West this year, but some of us have boycotted because of the invitation practising gay bishops.
We can’t be mixed,” he told worshippers yesterday during the consecration of Kerugoya St Thomas Anglican Cathedral in Kirinyaga County.
The conference is usually held after 10 years to discuss theological and social issues that affect Anglican communion world wide.
Issues such as ordination of women as priests, gay relationships and corruption, which divide the Church, feature prominently in the conference that attracts Anglican bishops globally.
