A dilemma for Oxford

According to this article,
A group of homosexuals will today meet Richard Harries in Oxford in a final attempt to persuade him that his lifestyle as Bishop of Oxford is offensive to freethinkers.

They will argue that, on the balance of probability, there is no evidence for religious belief, that Church teachings are contradictory and offensive both to members of the true faith and those of secular views. Having people with religious views ruling on lifestyle choices is anomalous. Religion is a choice; it is not inherent. It is offensive to have it promulgated. It is a matter for consenting adults in private.
Given it's out-of-date and offensive nature (e.g on slavery; see Exodus 21:7), it is inappropriate that people who subscribe to religious nonsense should have any influence on normal, rational people, homosexuals included.
