The chairman of governors at three UK schools banning the ‘promotion of homosexuality’ believes gays shouldn’t be able to marry as their ‘reproductive organs’ can’t ‘be joined together’.

Millionaire motor entrepreneur Lord Robert Edmiston is founder and chair of governors, the body which runs a school in the UK, of three Grace Academies, in Coventry, Solihull and Darlaston.

The academies have policies stating: ‘The governing body will not permit the promotion of homosexuality.’

And the policy links HIV and AIDS to ‘homosexuals and bisexual behavior’.

Similar policies, although not all so strongly-worded, exist in at least 45 academies, and a petition has been started against it, Gay Star News revealed yesterday (19 August).

Edmiston’s involvement in these three schools is notable as he was an outspoken critic of the Marriage (Same-Sex Couples) Act for England and Wales.

As a member of the House of Lords, Britain’s upper chamber of parliament, he was able to speak in the debate.

He told fellow peers: ‘It is a physical impossibility in a same-sex relationship for the reproductive organs to be joined together, and therefore whatever we seek to call it, it cannot be a marriage in the traditional sense. In fact, it changes the nature and meaning of marriage.’

He argued marriage equality would force people to develop new words for ‘husband’, ‘wife’, ‘mother’ and ‘father’.

His comments also appeared to liken same-sex marriage to polygamy: ‘If we accept that love is the sole criterion, then why cannot three people love each other? In fact, some countries already accept polygamy.’

And to incest: ‘If there is no possibility of genetic offspring or indeed no requirement for consummation, why should not close relatives get married?’

The details of the policies, and Edmiston’s involvement in the state-funded but independently operated schools, is revealed in a feature for GSN by journalist Jane Fae today (19 August).

Edmiston is believed to be the 209th richest person in Britain with an estimated fortune of £440million ($689million €516million) and is also founder of charity Christian Vision.
