Holy Homicidal Homosexuals!

This news story just cracked me up! I'd like to see Monty Python do a reading of this story.

You'll remember that Henry Orombi is archbishop of the "Anglican" Church of Kenya.

"Gays Want to Kill Me, Says Orombi"
From Uganda's

Archbishop Henry Luke Orombi yesterday said he fears for his life because of the campaign he has waged against homosexuals.
“Nowadays, I don’t wear my collar when I am in countries which have supporters of homosexuals,” he said while addressing Christians at Kitunga archdeaconry, West Ankole diocese in Ntungamo district.
“I am forced to dress like a civilian because those people are dangerous. They can harm anybody who is against them. Some of them are killers. They want to close the mouth of anybody who is against them.” Orombi is among the Anglican archbishops who have led the boycott against the Lambeth Conference, which takes places later this month, over the issue of homosexuality.
The Global Anglican Future Conference, which was held in Jerusalem last month, resolved to form a new movement and broke ties with the authority of Canterbury over the consecration of gay bishops.
Despite the threats, Orombi yesterday continued his anti-gay campaign, asking Christians to pray for him and others who are against homosexuals.
“Homosexuals are agitating that it is a human right. But how can it be a human right for a man to sleep with another man or a woman to marry a woman?” he asked.
“What we need is to wake up and protect our church and children against this practice.” He argued that God created men and women so that they could have children and fill the world so that the generations could continue. “So where do the homosexuals want to get their children?” he asked.
Orombi noted that homosexuals were trying to take advantage of Africa’s poverty by making donations, building schools and offering scholarships.
“We should not accept any donation that comes our way and has strings attached. Some people have already fallen victims in Uganda and we need to stop it,” the archbishop said.
Bishop Yona Katonene, the bishop of West Ankole diocese, who accompanied the archbishop, said he had received a report that a male teacher in Bushenyi had married a male student.

I'm trying to respect the Africans in the Anglican Communion. But this story just cracks me up. Orombi has been one of the leaders to argue that homosexuals should be stoned to death. Hearing his hysteria today just cracks me up.

What say you?

Vitamin H! (Haldol, former drug of choice for agitated delusional patients of uncertain psychiatric diagnosis)

I saw that at Episcopal Cafe but I do not feel like I am in any position to write about it.

That said - whoa baby, he is killing me with his words!

I usually take someone at their word if they say, "I saw a blue Volkswagen - punch buggy!"

I apply a different standard if they say "I saw a blue unicorn with polkdot horn reading the Church Times."

Great link, Ann. Cracked me up!

Good suggestion, NancyP. Haldol might do the trick.

FranIAm, you should never feel you can't comment. I treasure your insight. Surely you know that.

Malcolm, you're just a genius!
