Now, a link to the petition has been posted to the Free Church website.
Personally, I find such a targeted witch-hunt disturbing on many levels, although as a non-believer I may be (blissfully) ignorant of the finer points surrounding this debate.
Let's just remember what the Bible says about this at Leviticus 20:13
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.So if we are to comply with Biblical strictures here, there are obviously some issues surrounding the physical safety of Rev Rennie, which I am sure someone can justify.
As they can no doubt justify the incest between Lot and his daughters in Genesis 19:30-38.
Or indeed, that between the children of Adam & Eve. Just who did marry their three sons?
Anyway, the rest of us realists can sit back and despair as we watch yet another group of religious fanatics try and knock six lumps out of each other; and ponder all the peace and goodwill emanating from the pious.
Those with a specific view might want to sign a petition to support Rev Rennie.
