Popular British writer walks to repent homophobia

British Christian writer Symon Hill is walking away from his homophobic ways.

In an effort to pray, reflect, and ask forgiveness for those harmed by his prejudices, Hill will walk nearly two hundred miles from Birmingham to London beginning in June 2011. Along his route, he will speak to whatever churches welcome the opportunity to be in dialogue with him.

Hill, who converted to Christianity in his late teens, admits that his motivation for actively campaigning against same-sex relationships was due in part to his desire to fit in at the church he had joined.
