Do As We Say

The Lead gives us this story about how the Archbishops of Kenya and Uganda rejected the renegade bishop Kunonga in their own continent, but then they keep interfering in US and Canada:

Questioned as to their relationship to Dr Kunonga by ReligiousIntelligence.com, the Archbishops of Kenya and Uganda said that though Dr Kunonga had sought their support, they had told him to work within the structures of the Province of Central Africa.

The Bishop of Harare came to see us about this request” for Harare to join the Church of Kenya, Archbishop Benjamin Nzimbi said. But he was told “Harare belongs to Central Africa.”

It was improper for one province to interfere in the internal deliberations of another, the Kenyan archbishop said. “When you face a challenge you don’t run and join another province.” We told Dr Kunonga “go back to the Dean of that province to solve that problem.”

Listen to that again. They said: "It was improper for one province to interfere in the internal deliberations of another."

So please help me understand how and why they have consecrated white American men as bishops to serve in the U.S. How and why are they supporting the flight of the erstwhile Bishop of San Joaquin to the northernmost tip of the Southern Cone? How come they are not urging North Americans to "work within the structures of the Province"? Help me perceive them as something other than hypocrites.

Jesus, who never said a word about homosexuals, did have a lot to say about hypocrites.
