Priests claiming to be modern-day Martin Luthers have pinned a declaration to St Paul’s Cathedral’s doors warning the Church of England is ‘corrupt’ and in ‘crisis’ because of its softening stance on same-sex relationships.

In a symbolic act on the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, a group of vicars posted the Southwark Declaration – a statement affirming conservative Anglican theology – to the doors of St Paul’s Cathedral and Southwark Cathedral on Tuesday night.

The document, which has been signed by more than 60 priests and was first published in 2015, calls on bishops ‘to regain the confidence of Bible believing Anglicans’ in order ‘to avoid a rupture in the church’.

They write: ‘500 years ago Martin Luther 95 Theses to a church door in Germany. He did it because the church had become corrupt. Today a Declaration is being fixed to a cathedral door here in England because the Established Church in our land is becoming corrupt.’
