Anglican Mainstream's distortions and dishonesty
Call to boycott the Greenbelt festival over Tatchell invite

Hosting Tatchell will put children at risk of child sex abuse, claims Anglican activist

London - 24 May 2010

A leading consultant with Anglican Mainstream, the Church of England's conservative and traditionalist wing, has called for a boycott of the UK's Christian version of Woodstock, the mega Greenbelt arts festival, which takes place in Cheltenham in August.

Dr Lisa Nolland, apparently speaking on behalf of Anglican Mainstream, is calling on Christians to stay away in protest at the decision by the festival organisers to host a speech by gay rights and human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell.

Last year, Anglican Mainstream demanded a boycott of Greenbelt after it invited gay US Bishop, Gene Robinson, as a guest speaker.

According to the Church of England Newspaper, Ms Nolland says that inviting Mr Tatchell will put more children at risk of sexual abuse.
