Anglican minister clarifies 'un-Christian' remarks over Prince George

From Sky News-

The Anglican Cleric at the heart of a dispute over the sexuality of Prince George has issued a statement clarifying his views.

Kelvin Holdsworth became the focus of controversy on Friday after reports he believed Christians should pray for Prince George to be gay to encourage support for same-sex marriage in the Church of England.

The comments were drawn from a blog, written more than two years ago, that considered how Christians might support the campaign for gay marriage in the Church of England.

When the post was republished this week, however, it attracted attention for a suggestion that "a royal wedding might sort things out remarkably easily" with regard to gay marriage.

A light-hearted line musing that believers could pray "for the Lord to bless Prince George with a love, when he grows up, of a fine young gentleman" provoked the ire of some members of the church community.
