Same-sex marriage supporters stage protest at Church of England Synod

Reading now: 931

Dozens of same-sex marriage supporters rallied outside the Church of England’s General Synod at Church House in London as members arrived to debate and vote on the issue on 8 February.

Protesters held signs with slogans such as “Stop Anglican discrimination! Marriage equality now!” and “Discrimination is not a Christian value!” written on them.

Organised by human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell and Anglican LGBTQ+ campaigner Adam Chinery-North, the demonstration was supported by a coalition of Anglicans, other Christians and non-religious human rights defenders.

It is the result of Church of England bishops recently refusing to back same-sex marriage, instead proposing that couples who get married in a civil ceremony may have their union blessed in church.
