We thank God for all those supporters who have helped in raising a considerable sum required, we believe unfairly, by Transport for London, in respect of the London Bus Case in which we opposed the promotion of a categorical understanding of homosexuality in the public space. We believe individuals should have the right and freedom to leave unwanted sexual practices and be supported by professionals to do so. This case demonstrates the silencing imposed on any dissenting position and with no regard to the emerging evidence that sexuality is fluid and changeable for many.
The theology [of the body], he [West] said, offered a prophetic response to the rise of a new gender ideology in which individuals asserted a right to choose a gender, often of their own creation, instead of accepting gender as biologically determined.
No ‘Church revival’ unless Church demonstrates the Bible is not ‘prudish’ – claims ‘theology of the body’ expert
THERE will be no Revival in the Church in the World without the renewal of Marriage and family life, and until the Church can demonstrate that the Bible’s view of sexuality is not prudish, but is a liberating invitation to respond to the desires of our hearts”.
Transport for London (TFL) lawyers have asked the Enforcements of Judgements Office in Belfast to issue a Custody Warrent against all goods of Core Issues Trust.
The warrent requires payment of £8870.87 despite the fact that cases between 2013-2015 indicated proceedural flaws in TFL’s dealings with CIT, and that Mayor Boris Johnson had been dishonest in disclaiming his role in the banning of our 2012 advertisment. The warrant, designed to silence the work and witness of the Trust, remains inplace until payment of this amount has been made. All events, projects and operations of CIT remain functional. Current balance = £5,437.25. Thank you for your generosity! The full £8870.87 demand must be paid by 22nd February, 2016.
Please be advised that we are unaware of any informal or professional psychotherapeutic or counselling practitioner in the UK, Republic of Ireland, Europe or the USA practising ‘gay cure’ as articulated by Minister Morgan as including ‘electro-shock’ and/or ‘aversion’ (nauseous drug) therapies. Where these exist we support such a ban. However, client rights to informed consent and self-determination deserve protection and respect.

Alliance for Therapeutic Choice and Scientific Integrity Statement on the ACC’s Removal of Core Issues Trust from Membership
The Alliance for Therapeutic Choice and Scientific Integrity (hereafter referred to as the Alliance) is compelled to express in the strongest terms our consternation at the Association of Christian Counsellor’s (ACC) recent decision to remove Core Issues Trust (CIT) from their organizational membership.
In disallowing witnesses to be cross-examined and by ignoring both controversy about categorical notions of human sexuality (which the Royal College of Psychiatrists recently admitted are not fixed nor immutable), and inconsistencies in Boris Johnson’s witness statements, Justice Lang has confirmed today that the British establishment is no longer a guardian of freedom of
Lord Justice Sullivan yesterday dismissed Core Issues Trust’s application to appeal, claiming that Mrs Justice Lang’s inquiry in the London Bus Case was satisfactory and appropriate. According to Lord Justice Sullivan, Core Issues Trust is simply aggrieved at her findings. In reality, the rights of ex-gay persons have again been trampled by establishment judges.
Core Issues Trust offers its gratitude to the many thousands of citizens who voted against changing the Irish Constitution to replace marriage as the union between one man and one woman for life, with a new concept which takes no account of the sex of the marriage partners.
