Current Independence Proposals Will Reduce The Place Of Christianity

Date: Friday, 16 May 2014

In a report to be presented to the General Assembly of the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing) next week, the denomination’s Committee on Public Questions, Religion & Morals claim that under current independence proposals the place of Christianity will be diminished.

“The constitutional arrangements which would be likely to result from the proposals for independence are unlikely to be an improvement on the existing ones in terms of the place afforded to Christianity – in fact quite the opposite. We have no confidence that a constitution produced in the way set out in Scotland’s Future will give any particular recognition to the rôle which the Christian faith has played in Scotland or grant any special privileges to the Protestant reformed religion.”
