70 of Scotland's Largest Evangelical Churches Send Letter Opposing SSM

 

The Scotsman:

A LETTER signed by more than 70 of Scotland's largest evangelical churches will be handed over to St Andrew’s House today, opposing plans to introduce same sex marriage.

The event will be marked with a rally and backed by the campaign group Scotland For Marriage, which wants to maintain the traditional definition of marriage.

... "Our chief concern is that Scottish society will be the poorer if the definition of marriage is rewritten. Marriage is foundational and so much else rests upon it.

"You cannot radically alter the definition of marriage without it having knock-on effects on so much else in our society."

A Scottish Government consultation asking if marriage should be allowed for gay people through a civil or religious ceremony closed earlier this month after attracting more than 50,000 responses.

Dave Greatorex, of Scotland for Marriage said: "Once again we see how widespread the opposition to redefining marriage really is."
