The Rev. Anthony Musaala remains active as a spiritual guide for refugees from Uganda, including LGBT people fleeing threats of violence in their homeland.

He continues to support his dispersed flock, even though the church suspended him from priestly duties in 2013 after  he wrote a letter to his archbishop criticizing sexual abuses and sexual activity by supposedly celibate clergy members.

Yesterday, on Palm Sunday, he published a photo of himself on Facebook, holding out a handful of palm fronds. He wrote:

TO THE REFUGEES ON PALM SUNDAY

It’s Palm Sunday. I am holding that palm for you to say that like Jesus you are royal too.

Hosana ! to you as you ride that donkey of the process to your resettlement.

Some will laugh coz kings sit on horses not donkeys. Others will cheer and support, like me.
