(London Daily Mail) Christians should be ‘repentant' about the Church's past treatment of gay and lesbian people, the Archbishop of Canterbury said last night.
The Most Rev. Justin Welby told a group of traditional evangelical Christians that the Church's historic support of homophobia was ‘utterly and totally wrong'.
He also acknowledged that many young people considered the Church's views on same-sex marriage as ‘wicked' and ‘plain wrong'.

The Archbishop insisted he did not regret voting against gay marriage legislation, but acknowledged that such views were seen by many as akin ‘to racism and other forms of gross and atrocious injustice'.
