Re: Archbishop Luke Orombi of Uganda's firstcomments on...
It is important to remind ourselves frequently that the official position toward homosexuals articulated at Lambeth 1998 was the official position of the General Convention of the Episcopal Church as late as 1979. Folks in most parts of the Communion have not until quite recently had access to local lgbts calling them to account by witnessing to better news. In my papers at the University of Michigan is a thick folder which I labeled "Episcopal Snide" -- a collection of some of the more egregious correspondence bishops wrote to me from 1974 onward. I used to keep the folder at hand, but find it best not to linger at that latrine. Some of the authors have long ago become good friends. So will many of those who vote to condemn us now. Most of us would probably hold the position of the majority of bishops in the Communion were we straights whose exposure to lbgts has been limited to those arrested for public indecency and to bright young natives whom we observe dating older tourists on the few evenings we can afford to eat at nice restaurants. Of course, some, like ++Rowan know better. In his admirable post-colonial desire not to insist on having his own way, he has fallen into another grave form of colonialism, not respecting the formerly colonized enough to share with them his recipes for the bread of heaven instead of his recipes for stone bread. For my 1 minute and 30 seconds to speak to him in Anaheim, I pointed out that while Jesus did not take on leadership in a Samaritan Liberation Movement, he did again and again report on the gospel he had seen practiced by Samaritans. I urged ++Rowan to do the same. Louie Louie Crew, 377 S. Harrison St., 12D, East Orange, NJ 07018 973-395-1068 http://queereye4lectionary.blogspot.com/ Queer Eye for the Lectionary
