Fr Christopher blogs here on the latest lunacy from Lambeth. It seems a lady bishop from the The Episcopal Church has accused bishops from the developing world of beating their wives. She assumes this is true because wife beating is part of the culture they come from. Once again we’re in the deliciously ironic situation of African bishops accusing liberal American Episcopalians of racism. 

This happened at the last Lambeth conference when one of the American bishops said something to the effect of, “Of course, we know more about human sexuality than the Africans do, and once they are more educated and advanced they will come to agree with us…” The African bishops (many of whom have earned doctorates from Cambridge and Oxford etc) were rightly outraged and accused the Americans of racism.
