A Christian mother appearing on TV show Good Morning Britain to discuss the current LGBT education row in Birmingham schools and beyond has claimed that being gay is ‘a choice’.
Speaking on the show, Izzy Montague said: “I don't agree that you're born, you know, anything, no. Of course I believe it's a choice. I've made a choice on what I think is right or wrong.
“I don't remember ever thinking to myself, 'Am I gay, am I straight?' It's something that I have done based on how I believe.
“Even if I was gay, I do personally believe - based on my belief - that I feel that a heterosexual relationship is the right course of action for me.”
Ms Montague added: “'What makes you think that my child is going around in a world thinking that nobody is gay?
“I never said that I would not teach my child. I'm Christian, so we have our own ways of teaching about the world - it's not about living in a vacuum.”
