Ugandan Anglican church severs ties with US Episcopal church

The Anglican Church of Uganda has severed all ties with the Episcopal Church in the US over the consecration of a gay man as an American bishop.

The Ugandans initially cut ties only with the New Hampshire diocese following its November 2 consecration of Gene Robinson as a bishop.

But 30 Uganda Anglican bishops have now decided to sever their church's ties with the entire Episcopal Church. "Any same-sex relationship is a disorder of God's creation," a spokesman said.
