Kenya says no to Pope

The archbishop of the Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) thinks it’s just an English thing.

Kenya.gif“I do not see why it is necessary at this point in history, ACK Archbishop Eliud Wabukala told the Nation.“The
Archbishop of Canterbury sent us letters welcoming the offer but for
him, it is essentially to deal with the local England context and does
not apply to other provinces,” he added.

Wabukala said there were major differences on how Catholics and
Anglicans, whom he described as more evangelicals, understand the
ministry and sacrament, which he said have to be harmonised before any
formal reunion.

Any Anglican priest intending to cross over to the Catholic Church must understand these differences beforehand, he said.

That sounds about right.
