From Huffington Post / Gay Voices: Senior Church Figures Back Christian Counsellor Lesley Pilkington Over ‘Gay’ Cure

Senior figures in the Church of England have supported a Christian counsellor who treated a gay man when he asked to be cured of his homosexuality.

Lord Carey, the former archbishop of Canterbury, as well as Bishop of Chester the Rt Rev Peter Forster, and Bishop of Lewes the Rt Rev Wallace Benn were among signatories to a letter giving support to 60-year-old psychotherapist Lesley Pilkington.

The counsellor is due to mount an appeal this week following a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) ruling that she was guilty of professional misconduct over a therapy session with gay journalist Patrick Strudwick.
