Repentance for homophobia (but not at a church near you!)

I heard some time ago that the journalist Symon Hill was intending to go on a pilgrimage to repent of his previous homophobia, and he has now  begun his journey from Birmingham to London. There has apparently been some level of misleading reporting giving the impression that he will be hosted for talks along the way by several Anglican churches. In actual fact the churches hosting  Mr Hill are Baptist, Methodist and Reformed.

It will be interesting to see how much coverage and what response this event gets. You can hear an item on BBC  Live  and I shall certainly be reading up on the journey on Symon Hill's blog.
