UGANDA: Archbishop Ntagali Blasts Church of England over Same-Sex Blessings in Christmas Message
Church of England is moving in a very dangerous direction. They are following the path the Americans in the Episcopal Church took that caused us to break communion with them ten years ago

Fellow Ugandans,

I greet you all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Prince of Peace and Emmanuel - God with us.

Recently, I led a team of 30 people on a study tour and pilgrimage to the Holy Land. What a wonderful time we had. We visited the Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth. Nazareth is a real place and the Church is literally built over the house where Mary lived. This was the house where the Angel Gabriel appeared to her and "announced" that she would bear a child by divine conception and he should be called Jesus.

We visited the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem and saw the place where Jesus was born. We traveled to Galilee and sat in the place where Jesus delivered his Sermon on the Mount and heard afresh the Beatitudes. We traveled across the Sea of Galilee by boat, just like Jesus did with his disciples. We walked down the Mount of Olives, stood where Jesus wept over Jerusalem, and prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane. We saw the place where Jesus was crucified and buried, and raised from the dead. And, we sat on the steps to the Temple in Jerusalem where Peter preached on the Day of Pentecost and 3,000 were baptized.
