‘Church of Scotland’ Backs Homosexual Unions

(Christian Institute) The Church of Scotland has taken steps to allow its ministers to perform same-sex “weddings,” after debating a report in its General Assembly.

The report, put forward by the influential Theological Forum, acknowledged that the Bible condemns same-sex acts, but claimed Scripture was framed by cultural context.

Marriage was redefined in Scotland in 2014, but individual churches are not required to participate in same-sex ceremonies.

    Western Europe has become a Sodom. So sad. The end of the great Western Christendom. Western white people must read the Word of God and realize that Christianity is forever incompatible with immorality.

    • Colin Rafferty

      Yes, all those Greek statues from before the time of Christ are a bad influence on Christians.

      • Parodyx

        Forgive my toadying but I just wanna stand up and applaud everything you write here.

        • Grace Kim Kwon

          You guys are mere bullies if you have no Christian ethics. Poor your parents. Racists are better than the pervs to deal with.

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        Yes, Ex-christian Westerners are turning into their original pagan barbarism, casting away freedom and civility. Mankind need Christian virtues for sanity. Today’s Sodomic Western culture needs to get fixed by the genuine Christian Church.

        • Parodyx

          Excuse me, is it really necessary to say “Westerners” every time you wish to attack non-Christians?

          • Amos Moses

            Keep up the good work, Grace …………..

          • Parodyx

            Even when it makes no sense, Grace.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Why? You should be ashamed of your own civilization for turning from a decent Christendom into a Sodom. What went wrong with you? If there wasn’t the example of the ancient Israel that forsook the Lord and got punished, this phenomenon could have never been understood.

          • Parodyx

            I rarely have any clue what you’re talking about.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Ancient Israel was punished for going wayward. So will be today’s Western Sodom. Wicked civilizations get destroyed by God. Read Isaiah 40. The Christian population in your land is the only hope.

          • Parodyx

            To listen to you talk, everything about the “west” should be nuked or torched.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            No, the West was noble and was full of things to learn from when it was Christian normal. Something went horribly wrong in the 1980’s.

          • Parodyx

            It was never “Christian normal”. Those were very oppressive times.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Everywhere on earth. Christian whites were the most advanced and humane and intelligent species with the universal literacy. Western whites became Sodomic this century. You guys should stop pushing the endorsement of Sodomy. It’s the worst kind of slavery and atrocity that is known in history. No civilization prohibited morality like the Ex-christian West did. Western whites need Christianity for morality.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Thank you. If USA loses religious freedom, so many of Earthlings will lose freedom, too. We will battle together.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            This news is on Scotland. Regarding homosexuality, Westerners do falsehood because of their godless secular culture, and Non-Westerners do falsehood because they mimick the Western liberals. I also want American liberals to know how it feels to be grouped together and made comments on. They do that to white conservative Evangelical Christian males all the time for a few decades. I also want Westerners to stop attacking their own noble Christian ancestors who are morally better.

    “You are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” Matt 1:21

    That’s Christianity. In the post-Christian religion, you don’t get saved from your sins, you celebrate them. These clergy are not servants of God.

    • Chris

      And another no true scotsman raises his head.

      • Colin Rafferty

        I am upset that I had not thought of making a “one true scotsman” joke for this article. You win.

    • Recognizing_Truth

      Probably the best definition of post-Christian religions I’ve heard so far.

  • Robert

    So what’s the name of the free church in Scotland. The church that receives no tax money from Scotland?

    • Grace Kim Kwon

      Government money can corrupt the churches, and that must be the very purpose of filthy secularism.

  • Robinske2

    Unfortunately, nearly all of the old time denominations have abandoned the faith.

    • Grace Kim Kwon

      Yes. Scientists should research the reason why.

  • Chris

    Why was my post removed? It did not contain profanity, vulgarity, violence, blasphemy all caps or discourtesy. So why was it removed?

    • WhiteGhetto

      Opposing opinions are wicked evil

      • Chris

        It would seem so.

    Well, God has left the Church of Scotland.

    • Recognizing_Truth

      God never leaves – it’s the Church of Scotland that has apostatized and left God.

      • InTheChurch

        Ok, I will take that.

  • Recognizing_Truth

    When did the rallying cry of the Scottish covenanters go from “repent” to “recant”…?

    Actually, this has been going on since Jesus instituted his church – the ones called out, to be separate from the world and cleaved to Him – have always had to deal with the apostates who looked initially like they were part of Christ’s church, but showed their true colors when on their own, rejecting God and His Word and setting themselves up as “gods” who are anti-Christ.

    Children, it is the last hour. And as you have heard, “Antichrist is coming,” even now many antichrists have come. We know from this that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they did not belong to us; for if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us. However, they went out so that it might be made clear that none of them belongs to us. (1 John 2:18-19)
