Letter: Tragic nonsense

From The Rev Neil Dawson

Sir: It is not just the members of OutRage! who are concerned about the ministry to homosexuals at St Michael's, Chester Square and that church's involvement with "Living Waters International" ("Activists storm `anti- gay' church service", 24 August). Many of us within the Church are worried, too.

The bizarre medieval notion that sexual orientation or illness is the result of demonic possession would be laughable were it not for the tragic consequences which have too often happened as a result.

It is high time for responsible people in the Church of England to denounce this for the nonsense that it is.

Yours faithfully,
