* Lord Tebbit is boycotting the cathedral near him in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk
* His comments were condemned, with calls for him to be expelled from the party
* The 87-year-old Tory grandee is adamant that the canon of St Edmundsbury Cathedral is a 'sodomite'
Lord Tebbit has provoked outrage by vowing to boycott services conducted by a gay dean the Tory peer has branded a 'sodomite'.
The former Conservative Party chairman has been attending the cathedral near his home in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, for nine years but has told The Mail on Sunday he will no longer go there when the recently appointed Rev Canon Joe Hawes is officiating.
The 87-year-old Tory grandee is adamant that the canon of St Edmundsbury Cathedral is a 'sodomite' a biblical term seen as unacceptable by gay people.
Lord Tebbit said: 'I find it difficult to accept a sodomite as a member of the clergy who will, for example, be called upon to conduct marriage services. I will struggle to attend if he is officiating.'
His comments were condemned last night, with one prominent gay Conservative calling for him to be thrown out of the party.
Lord Tebbit said he had discovered from a newsletter in March that the canon, 52, who is in a civil partnership with another cleric, the Rev Chris Eyden, was to become the cathedral's most senior official.

For shame. He used an accurate term. They must ban him.
According to British law, he must be incarcerated for years for disparaging buggers.
I would absolutely not go to a church service officiated by a sodomite.
The problem M’ Lord is not the cathedral, or even the sodomitical cleric. The problem is the Church of England and to a large degree the broader Anglican Communion. It doesn’t really matter if you attend there when he is on the altar or not. Because the CofE allows that sort of thing. If you are taking their communion you are effectively saying this is not a big deal.
>>a biblical term seen as unacceptable by gay people.
The sex positive agenda seeks to end ALL moral judgments regarding sexual couplings of ANY kind regardless of sex, age, relation, marital status, number, or species of partner(s). They are anti-abstinence and seek to see everyone sexually active at all ages.
Sodomite is a historical term. And as they are not fornicators, it is suitable.
Sodomy is protected from haters and their speech while speaking is banned unless it’s unicorns and rainbows.
The cleric is a sodomite. The old chap could have called him much worse than that, but he didn’t. Is it too much for a parishioner to expect that a Christian minister live in line with Christian morality?
Well, is the canon of St Edmundsbury Cathedral is a sodomite?
At what point does the ridiculous 480 year-old charade known as the CofE finally call it quits? It looks like it’s just about run its course. Perhaps it’ll be dissolved by the 500th anniversary? Tolkien nailed it decades ago as a “shadowy medley have half-remembered tradition and mutilated beliefs”... and that was even before they completely lost it with women priests, gays, etc.
The legal synonym ‘gross indecency’ will do as well.
Bury St. Edmonds? Now where have I heard that before? Ah yes one of the best episodes from Yes Prime Minister involved Hacker having to appoint the bishop for Bury St. Edmonds in the episode called The Bishops Gambit which included this very truthful bit.
Good for him: it’s about time someone in the Church of England called it what it is.
The majority of the Anglican Communion condemn sodomy in the strongest terms.
Keep in mind that the majority of the Anglican Communion is located in Africa...
But they are all in full sacramental communion with these heretics. To paraphrase the Fathers of the Church; you are who you are in communion with.
That is EXACTLY how Trump won, and why liberals cannot understand how.
