(The Christian Institute) — A minister in the Church of Scotland has accused Christian charity Scripture Union of discriminating against homosexuals.
David Young complained to the Kirk’s General Assembly that the charity was excluding LGBT people from volunteering.
But Scripture Union’s ethos statement for volunteers is clear: “In our present culture we feel the need to emphasize that SU staff and volunteers display distinctiveness in the area of sexual purity, avoiding even a ‘hint of sexual immorality.’”
The charity, formed in 1867, runs Bible study groups for children in schools and churches across the UK.
