The Very Rev. Kelvin Holdsworth made the comments in a post on his blog. Holdsworth said that if Prince George were to be gay and sought to marry a man, this would change the current structure of the Church of England.

If people don’t want to engage in campaigning in this way, they do in England have another unique option, which is to pray in the privacy of their hearts (or in public if they dare) for the Lord to bless Prince George with a love, when he grows up, of a fine young gentleman. A royal wedding might sort things out remarkably easily though we might have to wait 25 years for that to happen.
