Senior Church of England bishops will start an inquiry into ‘gay cure’ therapies. Bishops will take evidence from people who have gone through the so-called ‘treatments’ to turn people from gay to straight. The treatments range from counselling to ‘corrective rape’, where victims are forced to have sex with someone of the opposite gender. The charity-led inquiry has begun a survey into conversion therapy taking place within religious groups. The Ozanne Foundation, which works with religious organisations to stop discrimination, has launched an online faith and sexuality survey open to UK residents over the age of 16.
