Rejection by C of E has driven LGBT people to suicide, bishop says
Teh Gruniad

A senior Church of England bishop has said some LGBT people have been driven to harm or even to kill themselves as a result of “pain and rejection” caused by the church.

...


I suppose I should be grateful that he's trying to shame them into doing the right thing, but I am afraid His Eminence (is that the right title?) is suffering from delusions of consequence.

Nobody he didn't go to seminary with gives a shit what the C of E says about anything.

Nevertheless, it's almost certainly true. But it was all of society, not just the church.
Alan Turing for example.

Whether the church caused homophobia or simply reflected the general homophobia of society is another question.

I'm not talking about anti-gay religious sentiment in general, I'm talking about the C of E.

The last time anyone gave a shit was long before the UK made buggery legal even for the lower orders.

That is a C list actor screaming for relevance. It is the religious version of "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!"

Pathetic.
