ESS Letter: Kirk ‘overstated’


Ruth Davidson is a little overstated when she suggests that “civic society would completely collapse without the Church of Scotland.” (your report 1st June)

Religious groups must be entitled to voice opinions as long as it is not from a platform of privilege, but is it cynical to suggest that for a Conservative politician the religious block vote is too hard to ignore ?

We may applaud The Church of Scotland’s support for foodbanks and sometimes agree with its “challenging of politicians” but remember its challenge to several liberal initiatives including marriage equality which happily Ms. Davidson herself is soon to enjoy.
