Ndungane to Gay Foes:


Reverend Njongonkulu Ndungane
of South Africa may be our second favorite man of God in the world (next to Tutu, of course). As you may or may not know, there’s been a bit of a row in the Anglican Church over gay folk after the consecration of the openly gay Gene Robinson here in The States.

Last week, Anglican leaders from Africa, Latin America, and Asia met to discuss the matter and urged American Anglicans to purge gays from their congregations or face complicity in a likely schism in the church.

Now, Ndungane’s stepped forward to put them in their place. 365 Gay reports:

Ndungane called the primates to “step back from the brink” and said that they are in danger of placing themselves outside “authentic Anglicanism”…”I am surprised that we allow our agenda to be so dominated and driven by an inordinate influence from the United States. This flies in the face of the experience of those of us who are steeped in black and post-colonial theology, the theology of liberation and black consciousness.”

We couldn’t put it better ourselves.
