GSFA embarrassed that Putin is their ally on S/S matters?

Interesting is the fact that the curiously-named ANGLICAN INK should draw attention to the fact that the recent GSFA/GAFCON protest against the move by the Church of England to provide a blessing, rather than a curse, on faithful. monogamous same-sex relationships in a bid to encourage others to de-criminalise homosexuality (a biblical injunction – “Set the Captive Free”) has now been backed up by a statement from Russia’s President Putin, whose deadly mission of suppression and bloodshed in Ukraine has shocked the rest of the civilised world.

One of the reasons given by Putin for his invasion of Ukraine is Ukraine’s determination to stamp out the ills of continuing homophobia and sexism within its borders. This solidarity of purpose with an acknowledged world dictator will not go unnoticed by Christians outside of the Global South, whose mission is to free the world from despotism, injustice and traditional, but outdated, prejudice on issues of gender and sexuality.

Even Vladimir Putin has commented on the Church of England’s General Synod. (Not that we’re endorsing other comments in his speech.)
