TEC Activists Hate the Nigerian Church

The 76th General Convention of the (Pagan) Episcopal Church has removed the final canonical obstacles to the "full inclusion" of non-celibate homosexuals. They may now be ordained as deacons and priests, they may be consecrated as bishops and their "unions" may be blessed in the churches. Of course, this has been going on for a good while in TEC so this isn't really news.

The story behind this story is the Anglican Church of Nigeria, which was blasted by a leading gay-rights activist who believes that divorce contradicts sexual ethics and because it is permitted in the Church, so should homosexuality be permitted (even 'celebrated', as Gene Robinson insists).

This leading activist is my former bishop and the man who has to sign my retirement papers in 2 weeks. He said: "It is time for the church be liberated from hypocrisy under which it has been operating about our gay brothers and sisters. Divorce contradicted sexual ethics. Our gay and lesbian members don't think much about what other Anglicans around the world think. The Nigerians are our most ardent critic. The Scribes and the Pharisees tied people up in burdens..." (Read the full report here.)

It should be noted that the heretic bishop puts forth a straw man in this argument. The Church does not oppose divorce. It opposes divorce and remarriage, unless it can be shown that the marriage was never valid.

Bishop Sauls stated, "The Nigerians are our most ardent critic." Humm... Perhaps we should ask why that is?

The Nigerians know the Bible and Holy Tradition because they live in the crucible where Abraham's faith was formed. Kain and Seth married daughters of the chief Enoch, a proto-Saharan ruler in the region of Lake Chad.The Jebu (Jebusites) intermarried with the descendants of Kain. These are the people who ruled Jerusalem before the time of David.

The largest group of Jebusites today lives in Nigeria and are known as Ijebu. Noah's homeland is Bor'nu near Lake Chad in northern Nigeria. The priestly lines, from which Jesus Messiah comes, originated among the ancestors of people living in the region of Lake Chad (Haplogroup R1b). All of this has been documented and verified through linguistics, biblical studies, DNA studies, and cultural anthropology.

So the weight of Holy Tradition is on the side of the Anglican Church of Nigeria and its Primate, Archbishop Peter Jasper Akinola, who is vehemently hated and constantly vilified by TEC gay activists.
