Archbishop Rowan Williams Isn't Mincing Words Over David Kato's Assassination


"You cannot go around sharing information about the identity of proposed lesbian and gay persons and urging people to ostracise them or worse 'Hang Them' as in the headlines of one of the Ugandan newspapers," Williams told reporters in Dublin yesterday. "You cannot do that without taking responsibility for the consequences. Language which demonises gays and lesbians has consequences."

That message isn't just targeted at Rolling Stone editor Giles Muhame, who refuses to accept any responsibility for Kato's slaying. It's targeted at any person who calls himself an Anglican, or simply a follower of Christ, to realize Jesus' message was never once about alienating and oppressing your fellow man.
