A CHURCH of Scot­land min­is­ter who heck­led Jeremy Cor­byn as a “ter­ror­ist sym­pa­thiser” at an event in Glas­gow has been sus­pended.

Tweets posted by Rev Cameron in which he de­cried ho­mo­sex­u­als as “cel­e­brat­ing per­ver­sion,” sug­gested HIV was the re­sult of a “lack of stigma” around gay sex and called Mus­lims “Bar­bar­ians” were un­cov­ered.
