A Scottish priest has been removed from his chaplaincy position after hosting a prayer service condemning Pride festivities.
Fr. Mark Morris, the Catholic chaplain at Glasgow Caledonian University, was terminated by the University last week after leading a “rosary of reparation for the gross offense to God which is Glasgow Pride.” The prayer service was held at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in the city, where Morris is pastor, against a backdrop of some 55,000 Pride celebrants.
In a statement announcing the priest’s termination, the University said it was “extremely disappointed” in him, reported Crux. University Chancellor Pamela Gillies commented:
“‘The views implied are antithetical to those held by the University, which is strongly inclusive. We actively respect and promote equality and diversity, and this has included having an official presence at the last two Pride Glasgow events.’”
