UGANDAN PRIMATE: "We Would Rather Die Poor Than Accept Gay Money"

UGANDAN PRIMATE: "We Would Rather Die Poor Than Accept Gay Money"

The archbishop of the Anglican Church of Uganda, the Most Rev. Stanley Ntagali says that Africa would rather remain poor than accept orders and subsequent funding from homosexuals.

"The liberals can stay with their money and we will stay with our faith. We'd rather go to heaven poor than go to hell with a lot of money," Ntagali said.

Addressing people during the Martyr's Day celebration at Namugongo, he confirmed that they will not accept any move in the same line with liberal churches that accept homosexuality. The Church of Uganda is resolved that they will not attend or even send representatives to the Lambeth Conference of Bishops set for 2020 in Canterbury UK.

The Church of Uganda resolved that we are not going to Lambeth 2020 because we can't move with people we don't agree with. It is good that our brothers in Kenya have joined us, he said.

"The High Court of Kenya has also defended the laws and we want to thank them for standing firm. We thank God for that great move," he added.

Archbishop Ntagali said he and a delegation will attend GAFCON 2020 to be held a month before Lambeth in Rwanda next year. GAFCON represents some 50 million of the Anglican Communion's 70 million Anglicans.

The Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON) is a series of orthodox Anglican bishops and leaders who first met in Jerusalem in 2008 to address the growing controversy over the divisions in the Anglican Church. The movement was started after a false gospel being promoted from within the Anglican Communion which pushed a variety of sexual preferences and immoral behaviors as a universal human right, a view they said was not biblically correct.

According to GAFCON, the Episcopal Church in the US and the Anglican Church of Canada are an evil and disgrace to Anglican identity.

Furthermore, The Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Kenya, His Grace Rev. Jackson Ole Sapit has cautioned Christians in his country on the evil of homosexuality. In a sermon, Sapit challenged Christians to be on the lookout of new evil practices being pushed onto the Church. He described the gods of human sexuality, money, and corruption, and said that these gods of the day must be denounced by the true Church of God.

"Homosexuals say they want to be ordained in the Church, but I don't know which religious leader will ordain them! We must be committed to the Christian faith and biblical sexuality," said the archbishop.
