Following un-substantiated allegations by the Pink News about iERA's position on homosexuality, Hamza Tzortzis, senior researcher for iERA addressed an audience of over 700 including muslims and MPs at the iERA conference on Sunday.
Stating his position twice for clarity he explained that iERA stands firmly opposed to hatred and violence towards the Gay Community. Instead he welcomes those who would define themselves as gay to open discussion with iERA, inviting all to a world defined by one's spirituality and not one's physicality.
iERA also issued a rapid press release in response to the article written by Peter Lloyd on 14th January which failed to give specific examples or quotations of the alleged.
