The Rev. David Gilmore, of St. Anne's Anglican Church in London's Soho district, was found guilty of "conduct unbecoming or inappropriate to the office and work of a clerk in Holy Orders" by a tribunal looking into allegations the 40-year-old openly gay priest treated two guests — a member of the Royal Air Force and a Royal Navy sailor who were staying with him after a gay rights conference in December 2009 — to an evening of wine, conversations about his sexual conquests, and an invitation to share his bed. They declined, and claim Gilmore entered their room the following morning in the nude. Gilmore — who in 2009 defended in court the right of prostitutes to operate a brothel — has been dismissed from the church.
