Donald Macinnes loses Gaelic School chaplaincy over gay remarks

A Church of Scotland minister who said being gay was a disorder and perversion has been removed from a chaplaincy role at the Gaelic School in Glasgow.

Donald Macinnes' comments on a Facebook page related to Scottish government moves to introduce same-sex marriage.

The decision to end his chaplaincy role was taken by the school's head teacher following complaints from parents.

Glasgow City Council said Mr MacInnes' views were not in keeping with the ethos of the school.

A council spokeswoman said: "The man is no longer the chaplain at the school and this decision was taken by the head teacher as soon as we received the complaints from parents and reviewed the situation."
