The Anglican Church of Uganda said Monday it may consider breaking away from its mother church in England, the church leadership there puts Uganda under pressure over a tough new anti-homosexuality law.
“The issue here is respect for our views on homosexuality, same-sex marriage as a country and church. If they are not willing to listen to us, we shall consider being on our own,” said Uganda’s top Anglican, Archbishop Stanley Ntagali.
“Homosexual practice is incompatible with scripture, and no one in the leadership of the church can say legitimize same-sex unions or homosexuality,” he said, urging the “governing bodies of the Church of England to not take the path advocated by the West.”

So frustrating…The Anglican communion is a perpetual headache.
