‘Normal life’ is more possible
If anyone can personally testify to whether society – and the Church – has become more tolerant in recent years it is Scott Rennie.
A decade after finding himself at the sharp end of public prejudice he is rightly glad to find the world a more accepting place.
The “normal life” he spoke of craving at the height of the controversy over his appointment has been granted to a great degree.
He would no doubt also be the first to concede though that there remains some distance to go before all the barriers have finally been broken.
