Sir: Unfortunately, the opinions expressed by the Anglican African Bishops on the subject of homosexuals, rather than being, as Trevor Phillips says, an attempt "to go back to some fire-and-brimstone version of Anglicanism" (was there ever such a thing?), reflect the attitudes towards homosexuality commonly found in Africa today. These range from persecution to accusations of homosexuality being a Western disease, or a total denial of its existence. If in doubt listen to any of the words of President Mugabe of Zimbabwe on the subject.
