Police investigating ‘gay cure’ charity leaflets distributed on election day

Editorial: Just a few weeks after the pyschology fraternity have asked for a consistent approach to the ‘gay cure’ in that they say it is not valid or safe to use, we have another group deciding what is in the best interests of us!

New leaflets supporting a charity that claims homosexuality can be ‘cured’ are being investigated by police, after they were distributed on election day.

The leaflets were left on seats on the Metropolitan Line, which goes to Uxbridge, where Boris Johnson was elected as MP.

They carried support for Christian charity the Core Issues Trust, which clashed with Mayor of London Mr Johnson over adverts booked to appear on London buses.

The group wanted to put signs on buses stating: ‘Not gay! Ex-gay, Post-gay and Proud. Get over it.’

But Mr Johnson had the adverts banned.

These fresh leaflets accuse Mr Johnson of saddling the charity with a £100,000 legal bill.

It is being investigated by British Transport Police.

Distribution of election day could be a breach of election laws, and could also be against Transport for London rules.

Duty Officer Anthony Capon told BuzzFeed: ‘We are aware of an issue relating to the distribution of politically motivated leaflets on rail services on the Metropolitan line during the course of Thursday, 7 May.’

Core Issues Trust’s website states: ‘Core is a non-profit Christian ministry supporting men and women with homosexual issues who voluntarily seek change in sexual preference and expression.

‘It respects the rights of individuals who identify as “gay” who do not seek change, and supports dignity for LGBT persons.’
