Uganda churchUganda is ready to break away from the Church of England if its views on homosexuality are not respected, a top church leader has said.

Archbishop Stanley Ntangali said the Ugandan-born Archbishop of York John Sentamu recently wrote to him, saying the Church of England was concerned about the country’s new anti-gay law.

“I have written back to Archbishop Sentamu. I told him it does not matter even if we do not work with them because the Church of England is a product of repentance and USA is founded on Christian values but they seem to have become spiritually blind,” Bishop Ntangali said.

He was speaking at St Andrews Church, Bukoto on Sunday.


He accused Americans and the British of double standards saying:

“Many people have spiritual blindness but let us not mix issues. One hundred and thirty six years ago, the Church of England sent graduates from Oxford University to Africa to evangelise.

“America is a super power built on Christian principles… but in all this money is involved.”
