A senior bishop has likened opponents of marriage equality to Christians who used the Bible to support slavery.

The Anglican Bishop of Salisbury, the Rt Rev Nicholas Holtam, suggested it was time to 'rethink' attitudes towards allowing same-sex couples to marry, as Christians did with slavery and apartheid.

Rev Nicholas Holtam is not the first to compare the misuse of the Bible to support injustice.
