Britain’s Gay Christians Condemn Evangelical Leader

A UK-based gay Christian group has serious problems with Evangelical leader Dr. Joel Edwards‘ role on a human rights commission:

In a ten-page dossier to be published on its website, the Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement calls for the head of the Evangelical Alliance, Dr Joel Edwards, to stand down as a member of the Equality and Human Rights Commission.

he dossier cites Dr Edwards’ stance on the Sexual Orientation Regulations and on civil partnerships. The dossier also refers to some of the lobbying the EA has done behind the scenes on such issues, and reflects concern in the gay community that as an insider, Dr Edwardds might be able to use his position on the Commission to lobby further.

Edwards says he’s “saddened” by the campaign. Poor thing.
