Gay cleric Jeffrey John speaks out: My homosexuality was the only reason I was blocked as Bishop of Llandaff | Christian News on Christian Today

A prominent gay cleric’s homosexuality was the only reason he was blocked from becoming a bishop, he has claimed.

Canon Jeffrey John was favourite to be Bishop of Llandaff but was subject to ‘a number of homophobic remarks’ during the appointment process before being eventually rejected by bishops, he said.

In an unusual move, Dr John, who is currently Dean of St Albans Cathedral, wrote an open letter to the senior Bishop of Swansea and Brecon, John Davies, complaining at his treatment which he said was a ‘clear and ludicrous breach of process’.
