Gay marriage activists target Christian cleric John Sentamu with racist hate mail

Archbishop John Sentamu receives racist emails after saying ministers should not allow same sex marriage

Police are investigating racist emails sent to the Archbishop of York following controversial comments he made about same-sex marriage.  North Yorkshire Police confirmed detectives have launched an investigation about the emails sent to Dr. John Sentamu and are treating them as potential hate crimes.

A spokesman said: ‘We can confirm that a complaint has been received from the office of Archbishop John Sentamu, following the receipt of emails containing racially offensive statements.  ‘The emails are being investigated as a hate crime.’

Last month Dr Sentamu said ministers should not overrule the Bible by allowing same-sex marriage.
