Controversy in Cornwall town as vicar starts new church accused of extremism and homophobia

From England-

There are concerns in a Cornish town that a new church, which meets for the first time next week, is “extremist” and “homophobic”.

The Vicar of Fowey has resigned in order to start a new Anglican church in the town, under the auspices of an organisation which has been dubbed right wing.

The Rev Philip de Grey-Warter has resigned as Vicar of Fowey and Priest-in-Charge of Golant after 17 years to “plant” a new church community, Anchor, under the auspices of GAFCON, a controversial global movement of conservative Anglican clergy.

Mr de Grey-Warter decided to leave the Church of England when the House of Bishops allowed the baptism liturgy to be used for those who are transitioning gender.
