It’s nice to know not all the leaders in South Africa have lost their minds. Archbishop Njongonkulu Ndungane has stepped forward to endorse gay unions. We’d prefer marriage, but beggers can’t be choosers. He says:
We should try to find solutions of living with difference and otherness. Diversity is the creation by the Almighty… we need to embrace, all of us, in our differences and seek to walk together.
As the international Anglican Church battles itself over the role of homos in the church and beyond, Ndungane’s words undoubtedly make a mark. They’ve certainly gotten a reaction from the Church of Nigeria, according to Pink News UK which call calls gays:
…A cancerous lump in the body (which) should be excised if it has defied every known cure. To attempt to condition the whole body to accommodate [them] will lead to the avoidable death of the patient.
Well fuck you, too, Church of Nigeria.
