The Church of England wants all faith schools exempted from a planned ban on discrimination against homosexuals
“Jody was not the first man to be killed, or terrorised, or beaten, or humiliated for being homosexual”
Something is desperately wrong when those in charge of our children’s education are still trying to wrangle and squirm their way out of true tolerance and respect as if it was all a big game they can drag out for eternity. It isn’t. People still die because institutions like the Church have contributed, over many many years, to a homophobic culture that persists even in this relatively liberal society. I hope those many good men and women in the Church will examine their consciences and pressure their leaders to live up to their public face of inclusion.
