"In December 2006 the Facilitator for the Listening Process on Human Sexuality, Rev. Phil Groves made a visit to Uganda. He met with theologians, counsellors, those running the Church's AIDS/HIV project and the family life network all connected to the Church of Uganda. He went to hear in person their contribution to the listening process around the communion. This was part of his survey of the process of listening to homosexual people in the Provinces of the Communion in order to facilitate mutual listening which has now been posted on the web.
Canon Groves last visited the Anglican Church in Uganda in December 2006. The Ugandan Church "affirms Lambeth I.10 in saying that homosexuality is incompatible with scripture" as well, however, "commitment to the Bible is very deep in Ugandan Christianity and with that comes an uncompromising commitment to offer the love of God to all". While in Uganda Canon Groves met with "four specific groups. A group of theologians, those overseeing the church's response to HIV/AIDS, a group of counsellors, all of whom are Christians, and a developing family life network".
"Archbishop Carlos of Mexico says that the Anglican Church offers a reformed episcopal church which can accept all. His church offers the love of God to all, reaching out to those who have been rejected in the society and by the dominant church. The church has not had, nor felt the need for, a formal listening process. It is open to all people including lesbian and gay Christians who are accepted and not labelled within the congregations of the church. The ministry of lesbian and gay clergy is valued in the church".
"In one diocese in Australia the diocesan spokesperson has commented, '"the listening process' in his diocese became a time of "shouting" rather than listening'."
"Some places in the communion have been unable to find the words and the space in which to discuss such issues. In cultures as diverse as Korea and West Africa sexuality is not talked about at all in society. Similarly in Japan, while gay and lesbian people have been pastored to with sensitivity there has been no way to talk about this".
