Trainee vicar Calvin Robinson claims the Church of England blocked him from being ordained because of his conservative beliefs.

Robinson, who is black, said he doesn’t believe the UK is institutionally racist and doesn't support the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement.

‘If you defend family values, the sanctity of marriage, all human life being sacred, or the fact that God made us male and female, you’ll face opprobrium.

He had spent two years at the University of Oxford training for church ministry, but he was told his curacy role was no longer available to him.
