She believes having a child out of wedlock is wrong, abortion and gay marriage are a sin… I understand that in principle, you can separate your religious beliefs from your job, but I do question the wisdom of openly stating that you oppose the decisions and lifestyles of a significant number of the people you seek to represent. Her faith is neither here nor there when it comes to doing the job - until she made those statements. Now she’s relying on people to trust that she’ll represent them in spite of being spiritually and morally opposed to them.My missus' take on this is that it is nothing to do with their specific views, it is the fact that KF says that she would not vote to support certain legislations (not just the one you refer to*) because of said religious views. However HY has made it clear that regardless of his own religious views, he would seek to bring about the legislation on matters that the people of the country want.
*I am presuming you are referring to the gender identity act. I certainly hope you are not referring to either the gay marriage act or the abortion act. Both of which she has stated (as to be expected) clash with her religious views and specifically with the gay marriage act, that she would not have voted in favour of it had she been an MSP in 2014. The argument then being, how can you trust if she, as FM, would actually bring forward legislation to support something like this, when she makes it clear that she would not support it.
Trust and politicians. Not easy bedfellows right now.
