GLASGOW, Scotland, April 30 /Christian Newswire/ -- With the Sexual Orientation Regulations becoming law at midnight last night the Scottish Christian Party has mailed 2 million anti-Sexual Orientation Regulation leaflets to voters in Scotland.
In the Glasgow and the Central region of Scotland ¾ million leaflets have been sent in personally addressed envelopes with a covering letter.
Reverend George Hargreaves, leader of the Scottish Christian Party said, "We intend to high-jack the political agenda as far Christians are concerned. The SOR's are a far more urgent matter to many Scottish Christians than independence or any other current political issue. It is an assault on their faith and conscience.
Thursday is their chance to say 'No!' to the SORs."
In the party's election broadcast, aired on BBC and STV last Tuesday, the SORs were compared to anti-Semitic laws passed by the Nazis in the early 1930's. The broadcast featured footage of Hitler addressing a rally in 1933.
Reverend Hargreaves noted, "We are turning the Holyrood elections into a de-facto referendum on the Sexual Orientation Regulations."
Note to Editors: In 2000 Brian Souter's Keep the Clause campaign gained the support of over 1 million Scots. The Scottish Christian Party are fielding 72 candidates across Scotland on the Regional List; more than any other political party.
