Ugandan Bishop Refuses AIDS Funds From Pro-Gay Diocese In US
by Newscenter Staff

(Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) A gift of more than $350,000 to fight AIDS in Uganda has been rejected by an Anglican bishop because the Episcopal diocese which offered it supported the election of a gay bishop in New Hampshire.

Uganda has one of the highest per capita rates of HIV/AIDS in the world.

Jackson Nzerebende Tembo, the Bishop of South Rwenzori in Uganda, said the money was tainted.

The donation had been sent by the diocese of Central Pennsylvania. Tembo said the Ugandan Anglican Church would not accept any money from any American diocese that had supported the election of Gene Robinson.

Bishop Michael Creighton was one of a majority of Episcopal bishops who endorsed the election of Gene Robinson as Bishop of New Hampshire in 2003.

The Ugandan branch of the Anglican Church has been one of the chief opponents to Robinson's elevation and part of a group of African Churches which have threatened a schism over the role of gays in the Church.

Homosexuality is a crime in Uganda, punishable by life imprisonment.

Tembo's announcement was not made directly to Chreighton. The Ugandan Church refuses to talk to the Episcopal Church. Instead, it was given to a conservative Episcopalian group which posted it on its website.
