Dear Archbishop Stanley,
I have read your comments in the Daily Monitor criticizing Hon. Rebecca Kadaga over her public visit to a certain shrine. “How can she – a professed Christian – go to appease evil spirits?” you probably wondered.
Whereas I share with you similar reservations concerning the Speaker’s shrine visit, allow me to point out the hypocrisy that your public comment on this particular issue belies.
Sometime in April this year, the Constitutional Court BANNED a certain group from conducting its weekly prayers.To this date, I have not seen you come out breathing fire and brimstone against this outrageous ban on worshiping God.
This, despite the fact that as a leader of the country’s second largest Christian denomination many of whom see you as God’s representative in this particular part of the Sahara, you are reasonably expected to take a firm stand, no matter the consequences, against such action. I take it therefore that when God needed you to defend him, you simply melted away into silence.
Perhaps I just missed your comment about the ban? If that is the case, then I am truly sorry for judging you without all the necessary facts. Sincerely.
But if not, it is my well-considered opinion that you should henceforth refrain from publicly making scathing attacks or indeed any kind of criticism against any Christian for “conduct unbecoming of a Christian” when you never came out to defend the very God that that Christian worships.
I may not be very staunch in my religion.
I may not go to Church every Sunday.
I definitely have a number of sins under my belt – of which I am certainly not proud.
I may not be an Anglican like you and as such probably have no moral authority to judge you, but my gut feeling tells me that until you – and indeed religious leaders of other Christian denominations come out to condemn the April ban on prayers – albeit belatedly, you similarly have no moral authority to criticize another christians over their “unchristian” behaviour because that kind of hypocrisy is simply too much.
Please, keep quiet.
