Would the Killing in Darfur Stop if James Robinson Went Away?

This is what the Anglican Archbishop of Sudan Daniel Deng Bul suggested in a press conference at the Lambeth Conference:
This issue of homosexuality in the Anglican Communion has a very serious effect in my country. We are called ‘infidels’ by the Moslems. That means that they will do whatever they can against us to keep us from damaging the people of our country. They challenge our people to convert to Islam and leave the infidel Anglican Church. When our people refuse, sometimes they are killed. These people are very evil and mutilate and harm our people. I am begging the Communion on this issue so no more of my people will be killed.
Somehow I doubt that the killing will stop if Robinson resigns, as Bul called for, and the American church "repents" of its evil ways.
