Pray for Prince George to be gay, says LGBT campaigner priest
CHRISTIANS should pray for Prince George to be GAY to force the Church of England to support same-sex marriage, a senior Anglican minister has said.
The Very Rev Kelvin Holdsworth, 51, said it would be “the fastest way” for the Church of England to allow gay people to marry.
Writing in a blog post he urged Christians to pray for the four-year-old prince and hope “the Lord blesses George with the love of a fine young gentleman”.
Rev Mr Holdsworth, who is gay, is an LGBTQ+ campaigner and the provost of St Mary’s Cathedral in Glasgow, a Scottish Episcopal Church, the Church of England’s sister institution.
He helped secure same-sex marriage in Scottish Episcopal churches this year
But he was blasted by the Right Rev Gavin Ashenden, a former chaplain to the Queen, for his comments.
He told The Times. “It is not a kind prayer. It is not a blessing.
“It’s more like a curse from a fairytale. I would say it’s profoundly un-Christian.
“To co-opt the Royal children to service a narrow sexual agenda seems particularly tasteless
The blog post read: “If people don’t want to engage in campaigning in this way, they do in England have another unique option, which is to pray in the privacy of their hearts (or in public if they dare) for the Lord to bless Prince George with a love, when he grows up, of a fine young gentleman.
“A royal wedding might sort things out remarkably easily, though we might have to wait 25 years for that to happen. Who knows whether that might be sooner than things working out by other means?”
The provost faced criticism last Year after allowing a passage from the Koran to be read out during an Epiphany service at St Mary’s; the passage told the story of Jesus’s birth but teaches He is not the Son of God.
