    Think it’s time these so called ‘moral’ ( I laugh) types stopped thinking about what people do when having sex. It makes them look like perverts who can think of nothing else.

    Why can they not see the person just the sex they have?

    Seriously? If they stopped looking at people by the sex maybe they could finally do something interesting in this world.

    Quite right Jock. I would still like to know how they are going to check up on the celibacy of their ministers ? Maybe, while thery at it, they should issue a list of allowable sexual practises for the whole population. I’m sure there must be all sorts of things theyre not keen on, or does anything go provided its between a man and a lady ? Ridiculous s**t heads !

    50/1400 * 100 = 3.57% of congregations threatening to leave.

    Hardly earth shattering and a massive benefit to the 96.43% of evolved congregations remaining…

  4. I guess that they don’t follow the part of religion that says to love one another as yourself. Sad that modern religion is completely blind to the moral notions and misinterpretations of their bibles. They would rather use those books to attack gay people than understand that they are supposed to seek out love for their brothers.

  5. “The Scotsman reports up to 50 congregations may leave the Church of Scotland if it chooses to do so.”

    Do you ever wonder if some people are short of real worries and problems?
