Archbishop of Kenya unable to “advance the lined-up activities” for Bishop Gladwin’s visit to Kenya

Monday, May 22, 2006

PRESS RELEASE

The Mt. Kenya East Diocese has had a long standing relationship with the Diocese of Chelmsford. It is true that the Bishop John Gladwin and his team made a courtesy call to His Grace the Archbishop, on their way to the former diocese of Mt. Kenya East comprising Kirinyaga, Meru, Embu and Mbeere, but there was no discussion centred on his position concerning the gay relationships.

Our position on gay relationships stands. We adhere to the Lambeth Conference Resolution 1.10 of 1998 on Human Sexuality which upholds the teaching of Scripture and faithfulness in marriage between a man and a woman in a life-long union; Rejects homosexual practice as incompatible with Scripture.

Now since we have known his position through factual, fact finding correspondences, we are unable to continue with advancing the lined up activities with the Diocese of Chelmsford.
