scottish-flag1Alex Salmond, First Minister of Scotland and SNP’s leader has been dealt a major setback by the Church of Scotland as they made a statement which said they could not agree with a change in the law to allow gay marriage as it would harm the “wellbeing” of families and communities.

 

 

While emphasising that homophobia was sinful, The Kirk stated their belief that  “much more measured consideration is required before the understanding of marriage, which is entrenched and valued within the culture of Scotland, both secular and religious, is surrendered to accommodate this wish.”

The statement was met last night by the SNP party, who said the response was “disappointing” and had hoped that the Church of Scotland would “fall in line” with the views of the majority of people in Scotland.
