‘Reconciliation is the business of the church’

Says the new Moderator of the Church of Scotland. But what about:

  • the over 500 year split with the Church of Rome?
  • the refusal to give up Church of Scotland nominations to every Scottish local authority education committee
  • Insistence on conducting religious observance in all ‘non-denominational’ state schools
  • insistence on continuing preeminent positions among churches if voters agree to independence
  • insistence on continuing with legal privileges established with the Act of Union of 1707 even if there is a new Scottish constitution after a ‘yes’ vote
  • claims Church should be able to continue to conduct marriages and conduct prison chaplaincies

Not much of a record of achievement of reconciliation there!
