Christians offer national apology to gay and lesbian community

From Australia-

AN Australian Christian group has offered an apology to the LGBTIQ community for ‘discrimination and hurt’ caused by the church and plans a national reconciliation process.

Former NSW Premier Kristina Keneally is one of the supporters of Equal Voices, a non-denominational organisation, which said it would present the document to parliament.

A rally on the steps of St James Anglican Church in King Street, Sydney, tomorrow night will encourage Christians from all groups to sign the apology.

Rev. Dr. Keith Mascord, a founding member of Equal Voices, said: “The National Apology will recognise the discrimination and hurt caused by Christian behaviour and attitudes, particularly in regard to ‘conversion therapy’ and “pray away the gay” movements.
