Church of Scotland Moderator receives online abuse over independence

The Rt Rev John Chalmers and the church have always maintained neutrality in this campaign - but even that appears to be attracting abuse on the internet.

The moderator says he's received emails from "determined characters using dubious tactics to pressurise" which he says could be seen as bullying.

Last week Harry Potter author JK Rowling faced harsh criticism online after she backed the no campaign.

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
