Queen’s chaplain resigns after Scottish cathedral Koran controversy

The Faith

One of the Queen of England’s chaplains has resigned just one week after he criticized an Islamic prayer reading at a Scottish church. 

Rev. Gavin Ashenden said he left his position after being confronted by officials for speaking against prayers sung from the Koran during an Epiphany service at St. Mary’s Cathedral, Independent UK reported. 

Ashenden has spoken against the dangers of Islam for some time, but after years of “attempts to silence or defenestrate” him, he announced his resignation. 

The reading was part of an effort to improve interfaith relations in the city of Glasgow. However, Ashenden called the reading “blasphemy” and a “serious offence” because it denied the deity of Jesus Christ.  

“The problem with what happened in Glasgow was that, although it was presented as a way of building bridges and a way of educating people, it was done badly, in the wrong way, in the wrong place, in the wrong context,” Ashenden told BBC’s Radio 4.
