Protest outside London "gay cure" conference

More than 100 protesters gathered outside the Emmanuel Centre in Westminster, Central London during a conference on curing homosexuality organised by evangelical Christian group Anglican Mainstream and CARE.

The conference was billed as a A Judaeo-Christian event although being held on the Jewish Sabbath, it was unlikely to attract any orthodox Jews; the only Jewish groups that oppose homosexuality.
