The fabric connecting the African Anglican Communion to the West seems to be tearing like the temple curtain at Jesus’ death.

This is after the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) wrote a terse letter to the Anglican Church of North America over the issue of same-sex relationships.

The letter signed by Archbishop Henry Ndukuba, the Primate of the Nigerian church comes after a statement by the College of Bishops of Anglican Church in North America (ACNA), which has largely been interpreted as support for the gay.

“The Bishops noted, ‘that the struggle with human identity is real and painful for Christians who experience same-sex attraction’,” read the letter by the Nigerian church which argues further that ACNA seems bent towards promoting same-sex relationships within the American church.

The Nigerian primate asked the Archbishop of ACNA to officially comment on the matter to avoid any ambiguity.
