From the story: ",,,at the annual conference of the Uganda Joint Christian Council (UJCC), an ecumenical body which brings together the Anglican, Catholic and Orthodox churches, the bishops resolved that it should be brought back from the brink."
Why were Catholics singled out in the headline when the quote above mentions Anglican and Orthodox also. Both these Christian groups have bishops also. Makes me question the motives and the accuracy of the reporting.
The article also states.
"The Catholic Church had previously been the sole major religion in Uganda in opposition to the bill."
"The Vatican came out strongly and publicly against the bill and, Wikileaks revealed, even lobbied against it."
The Vatican does not change its mind that quickly. Remember, it took approximately 500 years to apologize for the Galileo debacle. If the Church has done an about face on the issue, can assure you it was the Church in Uganda and not the Vatican. Even in the Catholic Church, bishops have some autonomy in their diocese.
I don't think the this story is on the up-and-up and/or is being slanted for an agenda. There isn't enough information given in the story and raises more questions in the readers' minds than it answers. Bad sensationalist journalism.
I'm going to do a search of other sources to check out the validity of the story.
