As the Guardian newspaper reported on 7 December, "The new heavyweight champion has caused outrage with his comments about homosexuality, women and religion. More than 80,000 have demanded his disqualification from the BBC Sports Personality of the Year (SPOTY) award." The article goes on to describe the influences in his life that formed his views. One of them was said to be Fury's radicalisation by his uncle Ernest, a born-again Christian and preacher. It is from his reading of the Bible that his more controversial, illiberal beliefs seem to spring,
For those of us who take our Bible seriously, but not literally, we believe that God's love is for all people, irrespective of their creed, race, ethnic origin, skin colour, nationality, age, disability, sex, sexual orientation or marital status. So whilst we respect Tyson Fury's right to his own opinions, we feel we cannot let them have so much air time and column inches without flagging up the alternative Christian view.
