It's not just disgust, it's supreme disgust.

The Anglicans are a global movement, reporting in to The Archbishop of Canterbury in England. It's quite an important sect of Christianity.. And very much associated with them is the Episcopal Church - a movement that had to break away in the USA after independence because it kind of failed to wish to sear allegiance to the British monarch. I can see their point.

Yesterday the Episcopalians voted a second gay bishop into place.

Yesterday Rowan William, Arch-Hypocrite fo Canterbury, told them in no uncertain terms to get back into line - his line. But WIlliams can't bring himself to condemn Uganda and the church there who want to go all out and kill gay folk for being gay.

Some christian, Rowan Williams is.

It looks very much as though it is another time for gay folk to stand up for ourselves
