A Church of Scotland minister who heckled Jeremy Corbyn by shouting he was a “terrorist sympathiser” posted a range of homophobic and Islamophobic messages on social media, it has been revealed.

Reverend Richard Cameron interrupted the Labour leader as he spoke to the media outside a campaign event in Glasgow on Wednesday morning.

The reverend, a minister at nearby Scotstoun Parish Church, asked Mr Corbyn why he was not “wearing a Jihadi scarf” and whether he would “invite terrorists to the House of Commons” after he was elected.

But it has now emerged Rev. Cameron posted a series of racist and homophobic Tweets decrying homosexuals as “celebrating perversion” and claiming Muslim children who convert to Christianity are “killed” by their parents.

In one message responding to a video on the climate emergency posted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rev Cameron asks: “Any chance you might ban gay priests?”

Another, posted in response to a BBC Sport story featuring an interview with Welsh rugby star Gareth Thomas on his HIV diagnosis, reads: “If we hadn’t removed the stigma of gay sex, this tragedy would never have happened.”

Posting under the username @thebiblestrue, Rev Cameron criticises the Church of Scotland for allowing married gay couples into the ministry, branding it a “dreadful state of affairs”.

He also brands the full face veil worn by some Muslim women as “oppressive and un-British”.

A Church of Scotland spokeswoman said: “There has been significant concern raised today about the comments made by Rev Richard Cameron and his social media use.”

“At this stage all we can say is that there is a formal complaints process and that any complaints we receive in relation to this matter will be taken seriously and addressed.

She added: “We do deplore any comments which are Islamophobic or homophobic.”

“The Church of Scotland works closely with our Islamic neighbours and the General Assembly has taken a strong position and said formally that we decry homophobia in any form."
