Bishop Denounces Homophobia
Church of Ireland Bishop of Cork, the Right Reverend. Paul Colton took part in a service on Sunday to mark International Day Against Homophobia.
The service at St Finbarr’s Cathedral, Cork on May 17 was arranged by the Christian pro-gay group Changing Attitude Ireland.
According to Dr Richard O’Leary of Changing Attitude Ireland “Homophobia is an issue for Irish society generally, but even more so in churches, where there has been a tradition of prejudice against persons who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered.
