A disgraced Glasgow minister has been kicked out of his church after a series of sex scandals started crowdfunding to try to stay in the country.

Smith wrote on the fundraising page: “As I have resided in Scotland for over 11 years, it is high time I applied for permanent settlement.” And so I went to do it, but, in the process, put it back. the Home Office part of my savings.
“Given my current visa status, it’s difficult to find paid employment within my immigration level. So I’m doing something I feel deeply uncomfortable with – asking for your help.”
The Shameful Rev offered donors a number of “incentives” for their support, including knitting and banjo lessons.
He added, “I think I owe all of you a great debt for your continued care, support and loyalty during what has been a very dark time in my life.”
In a statement last night, Smith said: “Over the past two years I have learned to face the decision of the Presbyterian Commission appointed by the Church of Scotland.
“I have many concerns about the way the proceedings were conducted and the outcome, as well as the account given by my accusers.
“I have received professional support to learn to manage my mental health and my life in light of the traumatic events I have experienced and continue to face.
“I don’t hold a grudge against anyone, including my accusers. I want peace for everyone involved and I want to continue to survive and build some kind of meaningful life. In doing so, my true character will be proven.
“Many of my supporters have asked how they could help in a practical way and, reluctantly, I started this fundraiser for a number of close friends to provide such an avenue.”
