Sentamu asked to condemn anti-gay violence in Uganda

Sentamu asked to condemn anti-gay violence in Uganda

From the Advocate:

Activists are calling on Anglican leadership to condemn antigay violence in light of the murder of Ugandan gay rights activist David Kato in January.

In an online petition, the group Speak Out 4 David Kato has urged Dr. John Sentamu, Archbishop of York, to “condemn threats, harassment and attacks on any individual due to their actual, or perceived, sexual orientation.”

Born in a village near Kampala, Uganda, Sentamu is the second highest-ranking cleric in the Church of England after Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury and leader of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
