Loss of charity status feared

Scottish church ministers and officials are concerned that the same-sex marriage bill, passed this week, will impact on churches’ charitable status.  The day before the Marriage and Civil Partnership (Scotland) Bill had its final reading in the Scottish Parliament, over 50 church officials had sent a letter to Scottish Minister Alex Neil, calling for amendments to the bill over concerns that their charitable status could be put at risk should they be unwilling to marry same-sex couples in their churches.
