Devout Christian Scottish Poltician Kate Forbes Says Sex and Children Outside Marriage Are Wrong as Bid to Succeed Nicola Sturgeon Struggles

One-time SNP leadership front runner Kate Forbes suffered a spectacular meltdown today as she declared that sex outside marriage is ‘wrong’.

The Scottish Finance Secretary’s campaign to succeed Nicola Sturgeon appears dead in the water just 24 hours after it began, in the wake of a series of toe-curling interviews about her devout religious beliefs.

Ms Forbes already looked in trouble after admitting overnight that she would have voted against gay marriage.

And this afternoon the 32-year-old – who cut her maternity leave short to enter the contest – told Sky News that having children outside of wedlock is ‘something that I would seek to avoid’.

‘In terms of my faith, my faith would say that children – it says sex is for marriage. That’s the approach that I would practise,’ she said.

Ms Forbes insisted it was not an issue she was ‘fussed’ about, suggesting she would not ‘impose my views on other people’ and she ‘accepts’ family and friends who have made those ‘choices’.

But asked if having children outside marriage is wrong, she replied: ‘For me it would be wrong according to my faith.’

Even allies are admitting Ms Forbes has ‘f***ed it up’, with SNP activists regarded as socially liberal. A series of MSPs have announced they are dropping their support, along with Westminster MP Drew Hendry.

The meltdown leaves Health Secretary Humza Yousaf as the favourite to take over from Ms Sturgeon.

Ms Forbes, a member of the Free Church of Scotland, faced a backlash after insisting that she views marriage as between a man and a woman.

She said she would have voted against same-sex marriage if she had been an MSP at the time, but stressed she would defend people’s rights under the law as it stands.
