Scottish councillor: 'Gays are sad and atheists are damned to hell'

A Scottish councillor has described "so-called" gays as "really very sad people" and said that non-believers are "damned to hell".

Kenneth Gunn, a Scottish National Party councillor for Selkirk, made his comments on a live BBC radio phone-in programme.

Radio Scotland’s Morning Extra news show had invited listeners to call in with their views on a recent Bible exhibition designed to promote gay rights within the church.

The "interactive" Bible had been placed on a stand with pens and the message: “If you feel you have been excluded from the Bible, please write your way back into it."

However, the messages did not turn out as expected, with many people writing messages such as "f*** the bible" and “This is all sexist pish, so disregard it all”. Full article
