Gay Activists Booted From Anglican Meeting

As anti-gay Anglicans threaten to seize the international movement, activists are raising their voices – and fists – against the conservative sect. But, of course, that same sect’s not about to stand by silently:

Gay rights activists have been thrown out of a summit of rebel Anglicans opposed to liberalisation of church teaching on issues such as homosexuality.

Campaigner Peter Tatchell and fellow protesters attempted to storm the meeting in central London which follows the setting up of a break-away group threatening the union of the world-wide communion.

Mr Tatchell said: “this breakaway faction of the Anglican Church is based on prejudice against women and gay people; it has nothing to do with Christ’s gospel of love and compassion.”

Nor, we think, does it have to do with the gays. It’s about playing power games, pure and simple.
