    Mugabe wants Archbishop of Canterbury to explain views on gays

    Robert Mugabe's homophobia is well-documented

    Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe wants Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams to explain the church’s views on homosexuality.
    The African leader’s spokesman said yesterday that Mr Mugabe wants to know why homosexuality is being “prescribed” to Zimbabweans.
    The archbishop is in Zimbabwe for a visit and has requested to meet Mr Mugabe today.

    According AFP, Mr Mugabe’s spokesman told the state-run Sunday Mail: “Fundamentally, he would want to know why the church of the British state, the Anglican Church, has remained so loudly silent while the people of Zimbabwe, and these people include Anglicans, are suffering from the illegal sanctions.”

    The spokesman added: “The second issue that the president wants this man of God to clarify is why his Anglican Church thinks homosexuality is good for us and why it should be prescribed for us.

    “He thinks the Archbishop will be polite enough to point to him that portion of the Great Book (that) sanctions homosexuality and sanctions sanctions.”

    Mr Mugabe has a long history of homophobia and has called it “filth” and claimed that gay men and lesbians are “worse than pigs and dogs”.
    The archbishop has strongly criticised Mr Mugabe’s regime, accusing him of being responsible for the persecution of Anglicans.

    A breakaway in Zimbabwe’s church has been led by Mugabe ally Nolbert Kunonga, the excommunicated former bishop of Harare.
    Mr Kunonga has been accused of beating and using tear gas on Anglican congregations.

    It is illegal in Zimbabwe for two members of the same sex to hold hands, hug or kiss under laws enacted by the regime in 2006.

    Head of Anglican church confronts Zimbabwe's Mugabe

    HARARE (Reuters) - The head of the worldwide Anglican Church met Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe on Monday to hand him a dossier of abuses against the church and its priests in Zimbabwe and demand an end to a campaign of persecution.

    Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, was greeted by thousands of Anglicans in Harare on Sunday and delivered a hard-hitting sermon criticizing seizures of Church property and harassment of its followers by members of a breakaway church.

    Bishop Nolbert Kunonga, a Mugabe supporter excommunicated by the church, has secured a court ruling giving his breakaway faction custody of all Anglican Church's assets in Zimbabwe.

    He has used the ruling to take over church hospitals and schools, eject bishops and officials from church buildings, and force Anglicans who remain loyal to the worldwide church to worship in private schools and halls.

    "We have asked, in the clearest possible terms, that the president use his powers as head of state to put an end to all unacceptable and illegal behavior," Williams told journalists at a Harare hotel after a meeting with Mugabe that lasted more than 90 minutes.

    Kunonga says he formed the breakaway faction to rid the church of homosexuality. But Williams said Kunonga's allegations were a distraction from the real problems in Zimbabwe that caused the split.

    "I think the scale of intimidation documented in the dossier was something that he (Mugabe) was actually not entirely familiar (with)," he said.

    "He expressed his concerns at the damage the division was doing to communities generally in Zimbabwe and he is willing to speak to Dr Kunonga to raise the concerns that we had flagged up this afternoon."

    Mugabe did not speak to journalists.
