Church of Scotland to apologise for “history of discrimination” against gay people

Church of Scotland to apologise for “history of discrimination” against gay people
- He said: “It seems to me that the Forum is asking the church at large to recognise the faith of gay people in its midst, and to cherish their part in the life of the church.
“The request that the Kirk recognise its failure through the years to value, encourage, and support gay people in its pews, and to do better in the future – is one of the most positive and hopeful things I have read in a report to the General Assembly in many years.”
The document, as reported in The Herald, calls on the church to atone for long-standing prejudice by way of an apology both “individually and corporately” on behalf of the church.
