KING’S College London (KCL) has removed an image of former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey of Clifton following student concerns about his views on gay marriage.
The picture is one of a number to be taken out of a “wall of fame” at the university, which said that the display “did not capture the diversity of our university community.”
Speaking in 2012 during the debate on gay marriage, Lord Carey said that for “time immemorial” marriage had been between a man and a woman and gay relationships were not the same.
“Same-sex relationships are not the same as heterosexual relationships and should not be put on the same level,” he said.
The removal of his image followed a review of KCL’s window display policy, conducted last year.
Lord Carey said he did not wish to comment. The uni has not commented on the student campaign.
