The Bible justifies bigotry

I find it highly ironic that members of the Redemption Church were protesting against the Equality Act (Sexual Orientation) Regulations 2007 on grounds that it criminalised people's consciences, which I presume means it forces them to go against 'biblical teaching.'
Meanwhile the leaders of the Church of England were falling over themselves to apologise for the Church of England's involvement in slavery, something which at the time was justified on biblical grounds.
Has the Bible been rewritten in the last 200 years, has the hierarchy of the Church of England been corrupted by the Devil, or is it that the Redemption Church, the Church of England and the Roman Catholic Church selectively use the bible to justify their bigotry, and given another 200 years they will all be apologising for discriminating against non-heterosexuals?

* Gay Debate, I agree fully with those who demonstrated. To be allowed to express your personal beliefs is a very important part of society.
As a doctor I should be able to turn away those who have religious beliefs. I, myself, believe that strongly held religious views are immoral and I should not have to talk to or treat those I view as immoral. People afflicted with religious views can easily choose not to live in that lifestyle so I do not see why I should have to be sullied by their immorality.
