A senior Anglican minister has been criticised for saying people should pray for Prince George to be gay to help the Church of England recognise same-sex marriage.
The Very Reverend Kelvin Holdsworth wrote a blog post urging people to pray him “to be blessed one day with the love of a fine young gentleman”.
His comments have been described as “unkind” and “destructive”.
Mr Holdsworth is provost of St Mary’s Cathedral in Glasgow.
He is from the Scottish Episcopal Church, which voted to allow gay couples to marry earlier this year.
Same-sex marriages in Anglican churches are banned in England and Wales
