Evangelicals urge Salmond to protect traditional marriage

From Scotland-

Leaders from some of Scotland’s largest evangelical churches have handed over a letter urging First Minister Alex Salmond to support the traditional definition of marriage.

Read the letter and the list of signatories.
The open letter was signed by leaders from over 70 evangelical churches, representing more than 20,000 people.

The letter was formally handed to the Scottish Government on Thursday morning at a rally organised by Scotland for Marriage, a group seeking to preserve the definition of marriage.

He said: “We’ve already seen Gordon Wilson forced off the Citizens Advice Bureau in Dundee because of comments he made in defence of marriage.
