Letter: Dissenting bishops

Letter: Dissenting bishops

Sir: How ironic that an African bishop (Right of Reply, 5 August) should come out as so anti-gay and anti-grey (grey areas, that is). For many years the Reformed Church in South Africa was convinced, on theological grounds, that apartheid was prescribed by God.

They too had their favourite Genesis texts, a biblical view of the world, and contempt for critics.

Eventually, that church repented and rewrote its theology. I pray for Bishop Mutebi's eyes to be opened. Maybe he should take a trip to Damascus?
