Gay men often suffer similar experiences at the hands of religious groups as Jesus did in his final moments on the cross.

That’s just one of the potentially inflammatory remarks British gay activist and former TV news anchor Benjamin Cohen is set to say later this week in a BBC radio Easter broadcast focused on the theme of abandonment.

Cohen will argue that religion is tearing families apart and that parents’ rejection of their gay children is driving many of them to suicide. He will also discuss his experiences growing up in an Orthodox Jewish household and educated in a Catholic school.
