The Episcopal bishop of Washington has lambasted the archbishop of Nigeria for ignoring poverty and AIDS in Africa while criticizing U.S. and Canadian churches for ordaining and "marrying" homosexuals.
"Why does this archbishop spend so much time on human sexuality issues while so many of his countrymen and women are oppressed by poverty?" Bishop John B. Chane wrote in a Sept. 1 column in the Washington Window, the diocesan newspaper.
"Where is the strong voice of the Nigerian Anglican church in opposing the continued neglect of vulnerable women and children or in advocating on behalf of the poorest of the poor?" he wrote.
