Scottish Parliament Building, Edinburgh, Scotland
Adequate words fail. The land and people known as Scotland and the Scots have been a fiercely independent people and land dating all the way back to the first century A.D. when they were in continual battle with the Romans, and the land came to be known as Scotland in the 3rd century A.D.
Anyone with a modicum of historical knowledge is aware of the constant on-going battles and wars with England to be independent. Have their own liberties, rights, and freedoms. To be a free people in a free land.
From the well-known William Wallace and Robert the Bruce in battles from 1296 to 1321 to win freedom from King Edward I of England, who invaded Scotland in 1296. Robert the Bruce defeated the English at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314, and in 1328 Scottish independence was recognized.
Centuries of grit, determination, fighting, bloodshed, and hope to gain freedoms, liberties, and independence.
To where Scotland has come to be today.
Drug-infested Glasgow. One of the world’s major cities with the worst drug problems.
Closed churches being converted into gambling halls, bars, and everything opposite of a house of God.
Turning from God.
Being as liberal, as enslaved to the Evil One and approving of, pushing the works of the Evil One to the fore and working diligently for the devil to make his evil the way of the land.
This from a people and a land responsible for John Knox and Scottish Reformation.
To where we, where it all is now.
Under the lie of tolerance, inclusion, diversity, equality, civil rights, and making it a better nation, people and world.
These seeds of evil that have laid dormant for centuries awaiting a time of germination and rapid growth, being the poisonous deadly weeds they are blocking out all light, all truth and dominating, overtaking and eroding, tearing down every foundation are now seen as light and truth and the foundation upon which every Western, and eventually world culture should be built upon. A worldwide Sodom.
An attempt to alter God, remove God, alter the Word of God, corrupt and pervert the Word of God if the Word of God cannot be removed from the face of the earth — which the eternal, unchanging Word never will be removed.
Scotland is rushing this eleventh-hour small window for public input and consultation to appease and please the militant, fascist homosexual, and transgender movement. I imagine at some point Mr. Yousaf, Scotland’s so-called (oxymoron) Justice Secretary, and his committee met with members of the militant, fascist homosexual and transgender movement and this is the plan, the arrangement worked out to appeal to and appease the homosexual and transgender movement — putting religious freedoms, the Word of God, the truth of the Word of God aside. Everything done in these times to appease and approve and put on a pedestal the evil and sinful corrupt and perverted sexually immoral, sexually deviant that comprise a small percentage of the overall population and force that majority population to be subjected to its evil, its hatred of God, its hatred of the Holy Bible, its hatred of the truth and its love of lusts burning for their own kind and the abomination of homosexuality and transgenderism.
God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.
Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.
Romans 1:18-32 — English Standard Version
Rather crystal clear and easy enough for a child to understand is it not?
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Scottish Justice Committee springs eleventh-hour consultation on hate crime Bill
19 February 2021
Reprinted from The Christian Institute
The Scottish Justice Committee has launched an extremely short 96-hour public consultation on the Scottish Government’s controversial hate crime Bill.
The Committee is seeking views on a range of options on free speech protections, but The Christian Institute warns that none of the options adequately protects the right to speak out on issues such as sexuality or radical gender ideology.
The consultation is set to close at 10 am on Monday 22nd February.
The Justice Secretary wrote to the Committee last month outlining four options which he said would help, through ‘stakeholder collaboration’, to “inform the decisions to be made by Parliament on freedom of expression”.
He added: “None of these options are Scottish Government preferred options; instead they set out how Parliament could decide to include freedom of expression provision.”
Mr. Yousaf argued that each option would protect “discussion or criticism” on controversial matters such as transgender identity, or for “stating the fact that one believes sex to be immutable”.
The Christian Institute’s Simon Calvert argued that while some options include robust protections for debate on religion, none of the options “gives strong enough protection for discussions around sexual orientation and transgender identity”.
He added the proposals are “watering down existing protection in the Bill for speech about sexual orientation”.
“Everyone knows these are hotly-debated issues. It is crucial that freedom to disagree about them is clearly protected in the new ‘stirring up hatred’ offences created by the Bill.
“Christians have deeply-held beliefs about sexual ethics and behaviour as well as about other religions. Sharing these beliefs should not be at risk of criminalisation.”
