Uganda: Church Should Listen to Homosexuals


Kampala — On March 1 your paper reported that the Archbishop Henry Luke Orombi likened the views of both proponents and opponents of homosexuality to views of any other people and said the Church could only find a solution by listening to them.

Let the Church of Uganda follow the Archbishop's vision. The Church should listen to the silenced, perplexed, intimidated, abused and marginalised homosexuals in our midst. They are not only in institutions of learning but are everywhere (though in minority) rubbing shoulders with the heterosexuals.

Dialoguing with them is in agreement with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
