Sexuality and the bishop

By Press Office
July 7, 2009

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.”
