Letters to AO

EVERY WEEK WE PUBLISH a selection of letters we receive in response to something you've read at Anglicans Online. Stop by and have a look at what other AO readers are thinking.

Alas, we cannot publish every letter we receive. And we won't publish letters that are anonymous, hateful, illiterate, or otherwise in our judgment do not benefit the readers of Anglicans Online. We usually do not publish letters written in response to other letters. We edit letters to conform with standard AO house style for punctuation, but we do not change, for example, American spelling to conform to Canadian orthography. On occasion we'll gently edit letters that are too verbose in their original form. Email addresses are included when the authors give permission to do so.

If you'd like to respond to a letter whose author does not list an email, you can send your response to Anglicans Online and we'll forward it to the writer.

Letters from 11 to 17 August 2008

Like all letters to the editor everywhere, these letters are the opinions of the writers and not Anglicans Online. We publish letters that we think will be of interest to our readers, whether we agree with them or not. If you'd like to write a letter of your own, click here.

Yes, some things are very embarrassing

I can easily understand those who are embarrassed to be associated with a church that welcomes gay and lesbian persons. I am sure that their emotions are rather similar to the feelings that I have when discussing the Nigerian church and its support of severely repressive measures against gay and lesbian persons and anyone who defends them. That Anglicans would espouse throwing these people into prisons, with little likelihood that they will emerge alive, is beyond embarrassing to me.
