Dutch Christian party quizzed about gay members
Gay rights organisation COC wants a debate with the Christian Union about the position of homosexuals within the party.
This follows a newspaper interview with CU member Monique Hager. She resigned as leader of the local party in the Wageningen town council in 2007 because of her relationship with a woman. She says she has tried to get selected as a candidate since then without any success.
COC chair Vera Bergkamp says Hager felt excluded from the party because of her sexual orientation and wants the Christian Union to clarify its position.
