Stonewall’s Ratner moment

Jun 2, 2021 by

by Maya Forstater, The Critic: Stonewall, the venerable gay-rights organisation founded in the wake of Section 28, has had a rebrand. Out goes the proud revolutionary red, white and black; in comes an uneasy combination of candyfloss pink, toothpaste green and petrol blue. Stonewall’s new identity comes in the middle of a crisis. It is having a “Ratner moment” after CEO Nancy Kelley said out loud that Stonewall does not represent lesbians who think that sexual orientation relates to people’s...

GAFCON pressed from all sides

Apr 1, 2021 by

by Charles Raven, Anglican Ink: ‘The deadly ‘virus’ of homosexuality has infiltrated the ACNA’ he alleged, and this had ‘serious implications’ for Archbishop Foley Beach’s leadership of GAFCON (the Global Anglican Future Conference, made up of orthodox believers unhappy with Anglicanism’s liberal sexual trajectory).

COME, LET US CONFER: A Call to the Gafcon Leadership

Mar 3, 2021 by

by Stephen Noll: During the past week, there has been a flurry of statements by orthodox Anglican church leaders –accelerated and magnified, as per usual, by the internet and social media – concerning positions on homosexuality and same-sex attraction.
