Abstract

This chapter connects with the relevant “progressive” policies in the U.K.around sexual minorities and excavates the contrasting and contesting response by Christian constituencies – mainstream denominations, LGBT caucuses in the churches and outside, and conservative Christians who oppose such policies. Each constituency sounds a voice which is religious-moral and theological in nature while employing discourses of specific rights, equality and citizenship to justify their positions as they are increasingly drawn into the politico-public arena.
