What Peter Akinola thinks

Peter Akinola is the Anglican archbishop who heads that church in Nigeria. He wrote an article in the Church Times recently entitled

Why I object to homosexuality

It is so outrageous that it deserves to be readily available. Hence this blog entry.

I totally agree with Revd. Akinola. Homosexuality is a sin. Repentance will lead to deliverance. Homosexuals cannot be delivered from this evil behaviour unless they agree they are wrong and repent.
Like Jesus asked the man at the pool ‘Do you want to be made whole’
Homosexuals are simply saying ‘no, I like my poor estate’

Peter Akinola is a tool of rich (and, by the way, deeply racist) American white men such as Richard Mellon Scaife, who is one of Akinola’s puppeteers and paymasters.

Here’s some articles detailing Scaife’s intense opposition to the advancement of blacks in America — even as he uses blacks like Akinola in Africa:

I applaud Bishop Peter Akinola on his standing ground against homosexual behavior, especially in his church. God did not make Adam and Andy in the garden of Eden, He made Adam and Eve. The world seems to forget who placed them here and why we are here in the first place. I believe the world is turning into a Sodem and Gamora. God Bless the world.

It is a shame so many christians are misguided as to what the bible actually “says” and don’t follow the message of Jesus himself. Rev. Akinola can go on his bully pulpit and espouse his own form of bigotry while his constituents go hungry and die by the thousands of AIDS. This man drives around in a chauffeur-driven Mercedes and reportedly refers to his employees as “bushmen.” No, the lowly Rev. Akinola does not speak for this Episcopalian.
