Extract from Campaign Statement
“The organisers, Anglican Mainstream and Core Issues Trust, say Stonewall’s similar bus campaign, launched to support their ‘equal’ marriage website, implies the false idea that there is indisputable scientific evidence that people are ‘born gay’, and that they have no choice but to affirm their homosexual feelings. They claim that Stonewall’s slogan, “Some people are gay. Get over it!” is merely another attempt to close down critical debate about being gay and marriage ‘equality’, and warn that the promotion of homosexual practices to children and young people, many of whom are known to experience ambivalence as they sort through issues of sexual identity, is misleading and dangerous”
