‘Nor­mal life’ is more pos­si­ble

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - AGENDA -

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.
