Church of Scotland Votes to Allow Gay and Lesbian Ministers

Now in full-blown heresy:

Scotland’s largest protestant church has swept away centuries of tradition and voted to allow gay men and lesbians to become ministers, opening up the prospect of the church allowing civil partnerships for same-sex couples.

The Church of Scotland imposed a temporary moratorium in 2009 on admitting gay and lesbian ministers after Scott Rennie became the first openly gay clergyman in a homosexual partnership to be officially appointed as a minister in the church.

The church’s general assembly, its law-making body, voted on Monday to lift that moratorium, officially officially allowing gay ministers to take on parishes for the first time since its formation 450 years ago.

The general assembly also allowed serving gay and lesbian ministers who have kept their sexuality private to openly declare their sexuality – a proposal bitterly resisted by evangelical and conservative ministers.

In one of the final votes, the general assembly chose by a small majority to lift a parallel ban on ordaining and training people who are in same-sex relationships, and gay and lesbians in civil partnerships…

Rest here.

 

One thought on “Church of Scotland Votes to Allow Gay and Lesbian Ministers

  1. Simply amazing, God forbid..but we are simply in grave apostasy now. One of the most historic Reformed Scots Churches is now fully gone as to moral orthodoxy! But does anybody care? Only those that know now they must depart such maddness! We can but obey the Holy Scripture – 2 Cor.6:13-18!
