Church of England to denounce therapy for unwanted same-sex attraction


The Church of England plans to debate whether to denounce therapy for unwanted same-sex attraction, at the upcoming General Synod in July.

The Church of England will be asked to denounce gay conversion, consider special services for transgender people and re-examine its teaching on marriage as between one man and one women in a raft of measures to be debated at its forthcoming General Synod meeting in July. In its first meeting since the surprise rejection of a bishops’ report recommending keeping the status quo on marriage, the CofE’s parliament will debate whether to join medical experts and condemn so-called ‘gay cures’ as ‘unethical, harmful’ and having ‘no place in the modern world’.

The Church of England’s General Synod is its ruling body and sets its laws. Church of England faces calls to condemn gay cure and hold transgender renaming services
