A Church of Scotland minister in Aberdeen has quit his role over the Kirk's stance on gay clergy.
Reverend Peter Dickson, of High Church in Hilton, said he had taken the decision with a "heavy heart".

He claimed in a statement the Church of Scotland wanted to walk away from the teachings of Christ.
Mr Dickson opposed the selection of openly gay minister Scott Rennie to Queen's Cross church in Aberdeen in 2009.



He said: "It is with a heavy heart and genuine sorrow that I announce my decision to demit the pastoral charge of High Church, Hilton, on Wednesday 30 November and cease to be a minister of the Church of Scotland.

"This is not a rash decision but comes after years of heart-searching discussions.
"I feel this is the only path left open for me which will enable me to continue to teach the scriptures with integrity."
