ONE of the Queen’s Chaplains has resigned amid a row over a passage of the Koran read out at a Glasgow cathedral which denies Jesus is the son of God.

Reverend Canon Gavin Ashenden stepped down as one of the monarch’s 33 chaplains in order to have more freedom to “speak out on behalf of the faith”, following discussions with Buckingham Palace.

The controversy centres on an interfaith service held at St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral over the Christmas period, where a chapter from the Islamic text was read out.

The chosen verses tell the story of Christ’s birth, but claim he was not the son of God and should not be worshipped as such.

The reading sparked widespread outrage amongst the Christian community, and Police Scotland is currently investigating a series of abusive messages directed at the cathedral on social media.
