It’s strange that the would-be bishops would identify themselves as homosexual, but then pledge to live a life of celibacy. If they are going to be celibate anyway, what difference does it make?
If on the other hand they are taking a political stand by proclaiming their sexual nature and then not acting on it, I can see why the African Church would feel like they were being overrun with radicals.
Don't be naive. The homosexuals have no intention of remaining celibate. As we have seen in the US with similar fiascoes in the Lutheran church, "pledges" and the like are of no meaning whatsoever to people such as these. They simply flout and defy the church's authority, mock their own oath, and most importantly, do it all with impunity. And that is how the Leftwing perverts get a church to die.
Episcopal priests are not celebrate, they can marry.
