What Do You Call It When 400 Anti-Gay Bishops Descend Upon Uganda For 7 Days of Fun + Sin?

I’m sure the All Africa Bishops Conference in Entebbe, Uganda, is not actually a gay orgy, but what else am I to assume when 400 Anglican bishops from around the continent gather for a seven-day confab at a luxury hotel resort to denounce homosexuality. That’s basically the equivalent of outing yourself these days, no? But Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury whose trying to reach a compromise between gays and the church was there, and he was all badass in that silent preacher way: “As most clergy stood to clap at speeches critical of homosexuality, Archbishop Williams and two aides, who sat in the front row, were the only ones who remained seated.”
