The outgoing Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Nigeria, Peter Akinola, is not happy the Episcopal Church has chosen to defend its property in court. He made his remarks at a "valedictorian luncheon" in Washington D. C. last week.
The New Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that in spite of heavy snowstorms in Washington D.C on Wednesday, the organisers of the event braced the odds to organise the momentous event.Someone did not get the memo that it's not about homosexuality.
``It is (the law suits) a major challenge. It is not CANA going to court; it is the demonic powers in the so-called Episcopal Church that are suing CANA churches. They are fighting us with everything they have with the hope of crushing us. It is so ungodly, so demonic and they are determined to completely wipe us out and this is costing millions of dollars," [Akinola said].
NAN reports that the Convocation of Anglicans in North America (CANA), a missionary initiative of the Church of Nigeria, was established in 2005 to cater for Christians opposed to same-sex teachings.
