Dear Brothers and Sisters,
KOTA KINABALU, SABAH: The saints and faithful in Sabah are not remotely interested in sodomy. It is dividing the Anglican Communion, and tragically it IS affecting the aggressive growth of the Anglican churches here in Malaysia whose clergy are reaching out evangelistically to indigenous tribal people, Chinese, and to Indonesians that flock across their border in search of work.
But the silver lining is that new laws that make it impossible for Indonesians to stay in Malaysia for any length of time as workers, means that, for those who convert to Christ they can now take the gospel back to their own country, proclaim it and plant churches in the most densely populated Islamic country on earth. Malaysian Christians are not permitted to cross borders to do this.

What is this in reference to?
I think Griswald later said that the Devil was driving some folks at the Dromantine meeting. Pretty ugly. Akinola is responding to that.
It probably would have been a more biting comment if Griswald actually believed the devil existed.
LOL! Speaking of our apostate hierarchy, did you see that the atheist Bishop Spong has a new book out? I took a look at one of his once, and I have only one question-- why, in God's name, can we not fire guys like this? Seems like a belief in God is an entirely reasonable credential to be a Bishop, for crying out loud!

I've always wondered the same thing. We Catholics seem to have the same problem and we have even less of an excuse since the Pope is (a) generally more conservative than the Archbishop of Canterbury and (b) has more power over his bishops than the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Clearly he should be excommunicated.
Even as an atheist, Spong doesn't have any original ideas or analyses. All his books are identical spewings of whatever trendy books he's read lately.
