Anglicans: Email the Archbishop of Canterbury and ask him to condemn Akinola
Hs press secretary's email: email@example.com
You may be aware that Nigeria's Senate is voting this Thursday on the
passage of laws that would make it illegal to advocate on behalf of
lesbians and gays in Nigeria. These laws have been under debate for
some time. They would impose a penalty of five years in prison for any
sort of public advocacy on behalf of gays and lesbians, or even
performing a same-sex wedding in a church. All Christians should
consider such laws to be a massive violation of human rights, and
against the will of God.
Unfortunately, the Archbishop of Nigeria, Peter Akinola, has been a
vocal supporter of these laws. And as far as I am aware, no one in the
Anglican Communion has publicly opposed him. You have not confronted
him over his support of these laws, and I am astounded at your
The murdered Roman Catholic Archbishop of San Salvador, Oscar Romero,
asked this of then-US President Jimmy Carter: "You say that you are
Christian. If you are really Christian, please stop sending military
aid to the military here, because they use it only to kill my people."
If we Anglicans really are Christians, we should immediately ask that
Archbishop Akinola withdraw his support for these laws.
