Church of Scotland General Assembly 2022

The Church of Scotland General Assembly's decision to let clergy choose whether to marry couples of the same sex (Herald report, 24 May) represents the triumph of liberalism after years of strategic constructive cleansing of evangelicals. This is a Pyrrhic victory, however. It has been accompanied by a paucity of vocations to the ministry resulting in such a shortage that churches are being closed throughout Scotland and congregations are being herded together like cattle in the wild west. There is almost nothing left of the identifiable Christianity of past generations and centuries.
