Christian Today report– A picture of former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey at the Strand campus of King’s College London (KCL) may fall victim to a campaign by gay activists.
Lord Carey is a distinguished KCL alumnus, but has been targeted by the University’s LGBT association for his views on gay marriage, of which he has been an outspoken opponent.
KCL’s LGBT student council officer Ben Hunt told the university’s Roar News: “The [university] principal has asked me to compile a list of new alumni for the window in suggestions.
“[This] will also mean the removal of Lord Carey and the inclusion of minorities in the discussions for new alumni.”
A spokesperson for KCL said: “It is likely, subject to planning approval, that the proposed redevelopment of the Strand campus will require a review of the Strand windows and we will consider the diverse views of our students, staff and alumni at the appropriate time.”
Lord Carey has been the target of KCL activists since 2012, when students described his statement at a Conservative party fringe event that “Same sex relationships are not the same as heterosexual relationships and should not be put on the same level” as “outdated, hurtful and offensive”.
