Andrea Williams: Christian Concern is the same size as the Conservative Party
Christian Concern’s Andrea Williams has claimed that her group is comparable in size to the Conservative Party.
The head of the Christian lobbying group, who frequently speaks out against gay rights, made the claim in an article.
She wrote: “At Christian Concern we reach 80000 supporters (and many more thousands who believe what we believe).
“The Conservative Party has fewer than 100,000 members – two movements that differ very little in size.”
Despite the claim that they are the same size, 10,703,654 people voted for the Conservative party in 2010, while zero people voted for Christian Concern.
According to Conservative party’s latest figures, released last month, the party has a membership of 149,800.
She claimed: “Highlighting a special category of ‘homophobic’ bullying creates a trojan horse for promoting the normalisation of sexual activity outside marriage between a man and a woman.”
She has also attacked gay rights group Stonewall, warning: “Those who want to turn the world on its head have often tried to manipulate the state education system to achieve their ends.
“The ideological propaganda machine of Stonewall continues to gain momentum and the manipulating of the state education system.”
