the bank has decided the group’s stance on homosexuality is so extreme, it has asked members to look for a new bank.
“It has come to the bank’s attention that Christian Voice is engaged in discriminatory pronouncements based on the grounds of sexual orientation,” a spokesman for the bank said.
“This public stance is incompatible with the position of the Co-operative Bank, which publicly supports diversity and dignity in all its forms for our staff, customers and other stakeholders.”
Not surprisingly, Christian Voice is calling ‘foul’
The Co-op bank, for all its fine words, is discriminating against us on the grounds of conscience and religion, something which the UDHR specifically forbids and which will shortly become illegal in the UK if the Government have their way. For a bank which claims to support the UDHR and to be against discrimination, their attitude towards us is unethical, blatantly discriminatory and nothing short of hypocritical. They should renounce all claims to support the UDHR and plainly state on their home page that they do not want any business from Bible-believing Christians including Evangelicals, Catholics, orthodox Jews and Muslims or any one who does not share their passion for gay rights.
I suspect we’ll be hearing alot more abouit this.
