Archbishop Of Nigeria Battles For 'Faithful Church' Against Pressure To Compromise On Gays

From Christian Today-

The evangelical Archbishop who heads the Anglican church's most conservative wing has condemned the inclusion of one of the most liberal bishops in a delegation to meet the Pope.

He has also spoken of the growing pressure to "compromise" on the gay issue, which he describes as most intense in the Church of England.

Archbishop of Nigeria Nicholas Okoh, chairman of the conservative Global South grouping GAFCON, says in his latest newsletter that he was "deeply disturbed" that the Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church (TEC) had gone with the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby to Rome.

Earlier this year, TEC was penalised by Anglican primates for its liberal stance over same-sex marriage and gay clergy.
