SHAME ON YOU ARCHBISHOP WELBY

The Church of England shows its ugly prejudice. 

It can no longer be permitted to be the established church of our nation.

It has become a haven for the bigoted and the divisive.

It uses its God to spit in the face of our young and our old, of our sons and our daughters, of our friends and our family that are LGBT.

It perpetuates the horrific abuse that around the world sees gays and lesbians tortured, hounded, imprisoned and given the death penalty.

It uses its power to crush this minority community.

It has bishops and priests who are practicing gays and yet has the hypocrisy to deny them and others recognition and the dignity of marriage.

Shame on you Archbishop Welby and shame on your House of Bishops.
