Misplaced optimism

My hope that the leadership of Anglicans in Africa had turned their energy and attention to the problems of the continent turns out to have been misplaced. Despite Akinola's claims that this meeting of the Council of Anglican Provinces of Africa would be about poverty, disease and injustice, it is apparent that the energy at the meeting was spent fixating on homosexuality.

CAPA issued two communiqu├ęs. The first, covers everything expect homosexuality. The second, covers homosexuality. You be the judge - where is the energy?

Akinola, however, no longer leads CAPA.
