[IOL] 1 Oct 2008--Anti-gay Christian bishops from around the world are meeting in Uganda as a follow-up to their last conference in Jerusalem, in which they formed a movement that threatens to split the 70-million-strong Anglican Church.
About 40 bishops from Africa, Australia, the United States, India, Canada and Britain are taking part in the conference, which began on Monday near the Ugandan capital Kampala.
The conservative anti-gay clergy formed the Global Anglican Future Conference Movement (GAFCON) in 2008 after the mainstream Anglican church refused to condemn the 2003 consecration of an American gay cleric.
"We are telling people in homosexual relations that we appreciate you as human beings, but it's not a rightful relation," GAFCON chairperson and Nigerian Archbishop Nicholas Okoh told Deutsche Presse- Agentur dpa.
