An Anglican vicar has had his bank account shut down after he answered their request for customer feedback, and he told them of his concern about the bank pushing the LGBT Pride agenda.

Revd Richard Fothergill told Yorkshire Building Society (YBS) to focus their resources on managing people’s money, not on social engineering.

He also told his bank he was particularly concerned about the transgender movement’s influence on young children, and he referenced ‘drag queen story hour’ as an example.
