Christian Institute — Membership of the Conservative Party has haemorrhaged by more than half since David Cameron became leader, with gay marriage blamed as a major factor.
An article published today by gay journalist Andrew Pierce says the Prime Minister’s obsession with redefining marriage is killing the Tory Party.
Party membership stood at 300,000 when David Cameron became leader. Today it has shrunk dramatically to under 130,000, Pierce says.
And top Tories have met with Mr Cameron, warning him that membership will nosedive to under 100,000 unless he dumps the gay marriage plans.
One source told Andrew Pierce: “The Prime Minister was told bluntly that gay marriage was causing membership to haemorrhage.
“Cameron was unmoved and said the members were out of step with the country.
