Glasgow Chaplain Sacked

Written by Andrew R Allan on Monday, 06 January 2014.

I know nothing about the Rev Donald Michael Macinnes, the Glasgow Church of Scotland minister who has been sacked from a school chaplaincy post after he criticised homosexuality on his Facebook page. I suspect I would not agree with him on many theological and church related issues. However, I am somewhat sympathetic to his comments regarding homosexuality as reported in the media and I'm most certainly appalled that he has been sacked from his post at Glasgow Gaelic School.

When the MSPs were debating same-sex marriage in the Scottish Parliament, assurances were given that those who spoke out against homosexuality and same-sex marriage would not be vilified and face discrimination simply because of their views. These assurances and safeguards are not worth the paper they are print on.

When same-sex marriage and same-sex relationships are being discussed the word 'toleration' is always used by the proponents of these relationships, stating that everybody needs to show toleration and understanding for those who practice same-sex relationships. Where is the toleration to be found now? The moment one speaks out against perversion toleration ends. One is only tolerated if one agrees with the homosexual lobby!

What does this whole issue say about the parents who complained? What kind of parents are they who would object to a gospel minister expressing the truth as found in the Word of God? I feel sorry for the children who have parents like this.
