GB News’ Calvin Robinson has accused the Church of England (COE) of holding him back because of his conservative views.
Calvin, an Ordinand in the Church, is currently in theological college training to eventually become a priest.
His next step would be to work as a curate alongside an incumbent priest, as he continues his journey to priesthood.
But Calvin says the Church has blocked his progression and cancelled his ordination because of his political stance, adding that figures in the COE “sneer” at GB News and its audience.
Speaking to GB News, Calvin said: “There are a number of reasons, one because I’m a conservative.
“There is only one Bishop who openly supported Brexit and he was sent off to the far end of the country in penance. In contrast, over two thirds of Anglican worshippers voted for Brexit.
