Glasgow 'scarier than Third World'

Glasgow 'scarier than Third World'

The Church of Scotland’s first Asian minister has said he fears more for his safety living in Glasgow than in his native Lahore in Pakistan.

The Rev Peter Gill, who was appointed minister for Ferguslie Park and Wallneuk North in Paisley in September, said he was more afraid to walk the streets in the west of Scotland at night than in Pakistan.

He talks about crime and gangs, none of which will raise many eyebrows.

But this

The minister said youngsters lacked respect for authority and blamed single-parent families, which he said denied children positive role models and made them vulnerable to the corrupting influence of gangs.

will probably get him a bit of flack. It's just not P.C. to say this or that the two parent family is the best environment to raise children.
