Church of Scotland Minister Loses Role as School Chaplain After Calling Homosexuality a 'Disorder'

Head teacher removes minister from post at Glasgow Gaelic School after Facebook comments

A Church of Scotland minister has been removed from his post as chaplain of a Gaelic school after describing homosexuality as a "perversion" and a “disorder”.

The Rev Donald MacInnes made the comments on a Facebook page seen by some parents of pupils at the Glasgow Gaelic School.

They complained to the city council over the remarks, with one describing them as “absolutely disgraceful”.

Mr MacInnes made the comments while criticising the Scottish Government's plans to legalise same-sex marriage.

He said: "The overwhelming support of our Scottish politicians in creating same-sex marriage is very disappointing.

"Many of us, myself included, agreed that the creation of civil partnerships was necessary so that individuals suffering from this disorder were not legally penalised in any way because of their sexuality.

"We can now expect to see the school curriculum changed to the end that our children will be taught this perversion as if it were a good thing

But it's a mental illness that has become a social disease. Look at what happened here in UTAH after one judge single-handedly invalidated the state constitution. Public officials rushed to hand out marriage licenses to gay couples. In UTAH, for God's sake!

John Knox would not be allowed in the church he served in today. Shameful.

The trick the Left has played is making homosexuals into a “minority,” and the Christian teaching on sexual morality into “hate” and “discrimination.”

One strategy some people might try is to enunciate Christian morality without any reference to any kind of groups.

E.g.: All deliberate seeking of venereal pleasure, except in marital acts which are apt for the generation of life, is grave matter.

I’d like to see anybody get all huffy and offended over that statement.

Call it a paraphilia.

Most people won’t even know what that means.

I would say the “Church” of Scotland is no longer a true church.

The Free Church of Scotland sounds more like the true heirs to the legacy of John Knox and the Scottish Reformation-

The Church of Scotland has been apostate for a long time now. I don’t know much about the Free Church, but last year I listened to a sermon by one her ministers and it was full of biblical truth Knox could Amen.

That’s good to read. May the numbers of the Free Church grow. And may this discharged chaplain find and join them. Perhaps he could get a job there?

It isn’t even “having sex”...call it what it really is: A vile depraved form of masturbation.

From Psychology Today:

A paraphilia is a condition in which a person’s sexual arousal and gratification depend on fantasizing about and engaging in sexual behavior that is atypical and extreme. A paraphilia can revolve around a particular object (children, animals, underwear) or around a particular act (inflicting pain, exposing oneself). Most paraphilias are far more common in men than in women. The focus of a paraphilia is usually very specific and unchanging.

Homosexuality as a perversion and a disorder, but we’re not supposed to tell the truth these days. Only a perverted and disordered ideology would oppose the truth, which is why I find liberalism so revolting.

What has become of society when one cannot call “perverted” acts involving the insertion of reproductive organs into the butt and the inclination to do so a “disorder?” Just because they’re legal and the (homosexual) shrinks say they’re not disorders we all have to lie or repress our thoughts and opinions?

The natural order is for penises to go into vaginas, and to think and act otherwise is a DISorder. Not everything in science is obvious, but this one is a slam dunk.

Anybody ever see that Twilight Zone episode, “It’s a Good Day,” where this evil kid kills people if they don’t “think good thoughts,” where “good” is the kid’s definition of “good?” And all the people, fearful for their lives, tell the kid how all of the evil acts that he commits are a good thing, lest they be killed for not thinking the “right way.”

That’s how I feel about the whole same-sex attraction movement.

Thank you for that term. I’m going to have to commit it to memory and use it. How in the world did “butt” get taken off the list of examples?

“We hope that this right will continue to be exercised with due regard to freedom of religious expression in a non-inflammatory way.”


My question would be :what does a mental sickness have to do with religion?

The bible speaks of homosexuality to be an unnatural act which is an abomination, not a religion.

Sounds fascinating. I’ll need to see if I can find that episode. It sure sounds like today’s Western culture(sadly).

The Church of Scotland is, or was, Calvinist. This attack on a minister there for just speaking the truth shows us the common enemy.

For the gaymafia or Izlam, there is no difference between Calvinist or Catholic.

Not sure if this school is religious or not. I did find this a bit comforting: He said the church was sorry the Rev MacInnes was no longer the chaplain, and also reiterated the Kirk’s view that homophobia was “sinful”.

That is good. The Church of Scotland may not be perfect, but it’s in no Christian’s interest to see it slide away into the realm of ECUSA.
