Gotta love this quote: “The Gospel . . . must take precedence over culture. Homosexual practice violates the order of life given by God in Holy Scripture.” – Archbishop Drexel Gomez of the West Indies
Two U.S. Priests Defect To Anglicans in Kenya
NAIROBI – Two American priests were consecrated Thursday as Anglican bishops in Kenya, the latest in a string of conservative priests who are defecting to African churches in a dispute over gay clergy.
Bill Atwood of Texas and William Murdoch of Massachusetts left the Episcopal Church — the U.S. branch of the worldwide Anglican Communion — because it allows the ordination of gay priests.
“The Gospel . . . must take precedence over culture,” said Archbishop Drexel Gomez of the West Indies, one of 10 Anglican leaders or representatives who attended the ceremony in Nairobi’s All Saints Cathedral. “Homosexual practice violates the order of life given by God in Holy Scripture.”
