BIG STORY: Panic And Confusion As Canterbury Orders Kazimba, Church Of Uganda To Stop Supporting The Anti-Homosexuality Act

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Ever since the Anti-Homosexuality bill 2023 now the Anti- Homosexuality Act was re-introduced to parliament in March this year, some of the religious leaders who have been vocal in supporting it was the Arch Bishop of the Church of Uganda Dr Steven Kazimba Mugalu.

Not only him many religious leaders and other Ugandans urged the president to sign this bill into law. These say that homosexuality is something for uncultured people and it’s not african but something that’s just being imposed on Africans and Ugandans.

Prior to passing of this bill, the Church of Uganda together with the Global South Fellowship of Anglican Churches while in Rwanda resolved in union that they will consider cutting their ties from the Anglican Church in England after the Arch Bishop Justin Welby ordered Anglican Churches to wed homosexual couples.

The Church of Uganda even threatened to stand on it’s own than supporting that irregularity which is not even any where in the teachings of the bible.

In the statement released by Bishop By Arch Bishop Justin Welby, just like other western powers urges the Church of Uganda and Arch Bishop Kazimba Mugalu to change his stance on supporting the Anti-Homosexuality Act 2023 and instead call for it’s repeal or agitate for stopping of it’s implementation.

“I have recently written to my brother in Christ, the Primate of Uganda, Archbishop Steven Kaziimba, to express my grief and dismay at the Church of Uganda’s support for the Anti-Homosexuality Act. I make this public statement with sorrow, and with continuing prayers for reconciliation between our churches and across the Anglican Communion….”reads part of the statement from Canterbury

Welby says he’s greatly disappointed by the Church of Uganda’s stance in supporting the Anti-Homosexuality Act. He says the Anglican Church in it’s resolution i.10 of the 1998 Lambeth Conference holds the value of sexuality and marriage and blesses them regardless of the sexual orientation of the couples.

“The Church Of Uganda, like many Anglican provinces, holds to the traditional Christain teaching on sexuality and marriage set out in Resolution i.10 of the 1998 Lambeth Conference. That resolution also expressed a commitment to minister pastorally and sensitively to all- regardless of sexual orientation- and to condemn homophobia. I have said to Arch Bishop Kazimba that I am unable to see how the Church of Uganda’s support for the Anti-Homosexuality Act is consistent with it’s many statements in support of Resolution i.10”- reads part of the statement.

The Anti Homosexuality Act has received support locally but condemned globally especially in the west where they call homosexuality a human right. The west have also threatened to withdraw support they render to Uganda because of the Anti-Gay Law.

Not only Welby, the Archbishop of York Steven Cortrell also has condemned the Church of Uganda’s support for the Anti-homosexuality act which they say is homophobic and discriminative in the way it criminalizes those involved in same sex and queer behaviors.
