Now this is weird. There is a gay Church of Scotland minister – well I’m sure there are many, many more than one but he is the one who is open and living with his partner. He goes for a job to a church in Aberdeen and is all open and above board about his situation. The church are fine about it and everyone lives happily ever after.
But no! Other ministers start to complain. The Presbytery complained. A poll done by The Times shows that 1 in 6 of the ministers they asked say they may resign if he stays.
Let’s go back a minute… the congregation are fine about it. OK? They have no problem. So what on earth does it have to do with all these others?
My heart goes out to this minister who is being villified for being honest and open. Tell me where you find that in Scripture.
