A coalition of human rights groups will rally on Sunday to mark International Day Against Homophobia, with the aim of urging religious groups to treat homosexuality with a more open mind. About 400 people are expected to march starting at 3pm from East Point Road in Causeway Bay to the Legco building with the theme 'Legislation is the best education'. The Reverend Silas Wong Kwok-yiu, who will conduct a religious ceremony at the rally, said: 'The Bible teaches us homosexuality is undesirable. But I think it is very controversial to say that.' He added Christians should learn to accept homosexuals by caring for them.
