Commenting on the Rt Rev Michael Nazir Ali's call for gay people to "repent", Symon Hill, associate director of the religion and society think-tank Ekklesia, said:
“The bishop's provocative comments will not help Christians move forward in engaging with questions of sexuality."
"Michael Nazir-Ali seems to be appealling to a group of hardliners. People of all sexual orientations should be made aware that his views are not representative of Christians generally.”
