Former Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali Thinks That Children Raised By Lesbian Mothers "Contribute To Delinquency"

Written by 




For a retired bishop of the Church of England, children raised by lesbians mothers and fatherless “contributes to delinquency”.

In an interview with the Mail, Michael Nazir-Ali, the former Bishop of Rochester and former chairman of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority's ethics and law committee, said:

This is social experimentation. It’s one thing for a child not to have a mother or father through tragedy but it is another to plan children to come into the world without a father.

“Research tells us that children relate to their fathers differently than to their mothers, and this is important in developing a sense of their own identity.

“In particular, boys need closeness to their fathers for a sense of security and developing their own identity, including appropriate patterns of masculine behaviour.

“The results of ‘father-hunger’ can be seen in [lack of] educational achievement and on our streets, where it contributes to delinquency.”

In his career, Nazir-Ali has often opposed to homosexuality and was also one of the bishops against same-sex unions celebration and against the ordination of LGBT bishops.
