A selfish worldview pushing an agenda, the triumph of their worldview is all that is important.
A senior Anglican minister has been criticised for saying people should pray for Prince George to be gay to help the Church of England recognise same-sex marriage.
The Very Reverend Kelvin Holdsworth wrote a blog post urging people to pray him “to be blessed one day with the love of a fine young gentleman”.
His comments have been described as “unkind” and “destructive”.
Mr Holdsworth is provost of St Mary’s Cathedral in Glasgow.
He is from the Scottish Episcopal Church, which voted to allow gay couples to marry earlier this year.
Same-sex marriages in Anglican churches are banned in England and Wales.
In his blog post, Mr Holdsworth said that if Prince William’s four-year-old son married another man in the future it would help the Church of England become more inclusive.
Comments Not Christian – Unkind and Destructive
Gavin Ashenden, a former chaplain to the Queen and a Christian Episcopal Church missionary bishop, said the comments were not Christian.
“To use prayer as a mechanism for wishing this on Prince George is an unkind and destructive thing to do,” he told the BBC.
“It doesn’t have the prince’s best interests at heart, but uses him as a gender-political football to please 1.7% of the population.
“What is especially odd and incongruous is the fact that it is suddenly OK to pray for someone to be gay, but totally unacceptable to pray for them to be free from being gay and to resume a sexuality that was in tune with their biology.
“This seems not only contradictory but hypocritical.” BBC
